A few days after the D&C we went out to dinner with my in-laws. We knew they were there for support although we never talked about the thing we weren’t talking about. It was actually really nice to have a pretend normal evening. There were topics that we didn’t discuss, to make it easier for everyone, but there was also acknowledgment that they were there for us, for whatever we needed. We had a support system and that was important.
After they left, my husband and I realized that both of us had moments where we forgot about the miscarriage. Only a few minutes for each of us, but it was nice, nice not to remember, if even for a very short time.
