Miscarriage - a shared experience
I expect by now everyone knows about Lily Allen's awful news - about how she lost her baby at six months.
I've spent quite a lot of time thinking about her... and about me. You see, I had a miscarriage too at 19 weeks. It was a little while ago and I now have the beautiful Boy Three, nevertheless those feelings aren't too far from the surface.
And it appears I'm not alone. The Mad House did the same and so did Living With Kids.
I wrote about it at my stv.tv Everymum blog.
I shouldn't be surprised that there have been messages, RTs, likes for similar posts all over the blogging world. There are a lot of us out there.
So if we all agree there should be more talk about miscarriage, more understanding and more sharing, then let's get cracking right now.
It's not a carnival, that wouldn't be right. But if you've blogged about miscarriage - yours, Lily's or just in general - then share it here.
