@Jmeleem I'm glad it all worked out for you. I don't think it's bad that you weren't aware how common m/c is. There was no sarcasm in my thoughts that it's nice that you don't know anyone who has been affected and so were sheltered from the heartbreak and the stress for you. We had our 13 week scan on Monday and less than an hour after the good news that everything was fine my FIL called with the news that his mother had taken a turn for the worst and we should come and say goodbye. So all our plans to announce our good news went out the window and we just told DH's grandmother by showing her the US photo. She was thrilled and rallied a bit so hopefully she'll pull through and be motivated to last until the birth, but it doesn't look good. Everyone, cousins, MIL, FIL, aunts, uncles were in the room or close by so I put in a quick phone call to my parents to tell them to. Took the excitement out of the news, but we're glad I was far enough along that we felt comfortable telling people.
We were told the same about my grandma. Have spent the last 7 months wondering if she will make it. Her doctors told her flat out that she wouldn't. So far she is still with us and only 6 weeks to go.
I hope its the same for yours.
