So I had a D&C for a mmc about a month ago (cautiously pregnant again), and one of the recurring things that people say to me is,
"Oh, I know SO many people who've had a miscarriage before all their other children. It's the body's way of clearing out/preparing for the real thing."
Um, what? I also know lots of women with NO history of miscarriage who have children, so what's the deal? I know they're trying to make me feel better () but there's no denying it was a real pregnancy, not to 'pave the way' for my 'real' children.
Anyone else have this said to them/is there any truth to it at all? It seems almost everyone I talk to has this opinion of it.
