The most encouragement I got was from the lady who did the ultrasound for my first miscarriage--she said very matter-of-factly "Oh, I've been there. I've been right where you are." I don't know why that was so comforting--I guess because I was completely devastated by the first loss because it was so completely unexpected, and it helped to know that I wasn't the only person in the world who'd ever lost a baby and continued to live a (somewhat) normal life.

Other than her, I've heard all the "well, you can always try least it happened early instead of later on (that's true, but I've heard it so many times I could scream)'s just nature's/God's way of weeding out the bad ones..." etc. etc. etc. A little more sympathy would be nice--I would think nurses would be in the "sympathy business," but I guess even they get toughened up over time.
