On Monday morning, I had a miscarriage.
This is difficult to say. And not because of the actual event – my body, hormones, and emotions have made it VERY clear that this pregnancy is over.
Instead, it feels difficult to say this because it feels weird to talk about me, and because I’m scared of feeling like I’m saying it for attention.
And even though I have a fear of pity or attracting too much attention, I feel like I have to say it for all of the people who have experienced pregnancy or infant loss and haven’t said anything.
You know what’s been hard about experiencing my miscarriage? It’s the feeling that I’ve already been shrouded in secrecy for months, and I don’t know how to climb out of it.
You see, being pregnant taught me just how isolating it is to be pregnant.
