Dayna, I’m so sorry for your loss, and it is really telling how similar our stories are. I honestly thought that the lack of “official” information about what a miscarriage is like was because miscarriages must all be so different — but it’s like we could have written each other’s stories (although your version is much more entertaining than mine!). W T actual F? Thank you so much for sharing, and I really do wish I’d seen your story when I was on the hunt for this information. I know you must have helped so many women who did.
