I get that he's stressed about an exam, but I had a miscarriage 2 years ago. I was somewhere between 6 and 8 weeks along when I suddenly started bleeding. It didn't matter that I wasn't very far into the pregnancy. It didn't matter that we had only been trying for a few months. It didn't matter that a miscarriage that early is not uncommon. All that mattered was the fact that we lost our baby. It's been 2 years and I still wonder what they would have looked like, what their first word would have been, what our lives would be like if they had made it to term. I also still wonder if it was something i did to cause it. Was there something i could have done to stop it from happening? Was it my fault? My husband did the only thing he could for me and that was to hold me, let me cry, and tell me how sorry he was. And that's all I needed. What he did was essentially tell his wife "oh well. No big deal. We can have another one." like the baby was a cheap glass that was dropped. Just sweep it up, toss it in the trash, and grab another one from the cabinet. It may not have been a big deal to him (and apparently some of the other people commenting), but it's definitely a really big deal to her. YTJ.
Certified veterinary technician. Literally yesterday had 3 dogs that had become obstructed because they ate something they shouldn't have. 2 went to surgery to remove the obstruction, but the 3rd went to heaven instead. What he ate had knotted his intestines up so much that there was nothing we do to help him. You want to know what he ate? Socks.
