Curses?

A bit of a brain dump again so please excuse me. I just need to get my feelings down.

My cousin lost her first baby this week, she was 14 weeks pregnant. All had been fine at her scan a couple of weeks ago. We aren't at all close but that doesn't make it less sad. In the Autumn my younger brother and his wife lost their first baby. Back before I had my eldest I had a mmc with my first baby, a couple of months after another cousin had a mmc, which was a couple of months after my sil had a mmc...

I know miscarriage isn't at all uncommon, but every single grandchild that has been pregnant or had a pregnant wife has lost their first child. With my younger brother I knew it was going to happen. It hit me as I was driving along thinking about their baby. Turns out she started bleeding that day. It can't be a genetic thing as there are several adoptions so actually very few genetic links. I am fully aware it could just be coincidence as sadly miscarriage is one of those things that does just happen. However I really can't shake the feeling that there is something more to this.

How sad :-(

So sorry to hear this. I guess at least all of the family know what it is like and support each other. No-one in my family had ever had any miscarriages or trouble getting pregnant (my mother sounded ever so shocked after our first miscarriage, like we had done something to disgrace the family).

That's really weird and sad.

So sorry about her loss and the fact that it is so common in your family.
