The Embarrassment of Recurrent MiscarriageI know what you're thinking...there's nothing to be embarrassed about. However, for me, it was embarrassing. It's almost like you're fumbling all the way to parenthood. Not only does it happen once, but it happens over and over again.
After my first IVF, I miscarried a twin pregnancy. One was in my fallopian tube for which I underwent surgery. I had kept my fertility treatment and pregnancy a secret up until that point, but after surgery we told our families. I received cards, flowers and many condolences. But what about the 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th miscarriage? I tried to keep those as private as possible. I didn't want everyone continuing to send flowers etc. Enough is enough. Besides, you almost feel like you don't have the energy to console everyone else when they react to your bad news.
