  1. I love this doctor! I was in for an ear ache and had just explained that I’d had an ultrasound the day before and it looked like I’d be losing the baby. In the conversation, I’d told him that one of my first symptoms is almost always a cold and that I’d taken some cold meds prior to learning I was pregnant. As soon as he heard that he interupted to say the above. I have since thanked him in person for this. It’s the one comment that stands out the most out of all five miscarraiges we’ve had.

    • Sympathy, reassurance, kindness…awesome! I’m sorry for your losses. :-( I’m glad, though, that you had this doctor to tell you it wasn’t your fault, because it wasn’t!
