    Thanks @Blossom74. I had a friend call who is not known for her tact so feeling kind of rattled at the moment. There were lots of 'helpfull' suggestions like taking 1 cot back and asking for a sympathy refund because our baby had died and platitudes like "at least you'll have more time to spend with the remaing baby". Ugh. This lady had 4 kids all conceived within months of trying. No miscarriages, no complications and NFI.
    Anyway I had a look at some websites this afternoon which talked about losing one twin. There was lots of mention about anxiety for the other baby so it seems what I'm feeling is normal. I got onto a section on legalities of naming and funerals and started bawling again so that was the end of that. Just one step at a time is enough.

Ah well, us IVF gals are used to giving blood and weeing in cups.

    good to know you're there too! yeah I used to faint at blood tests. I haven't since IVF & having so many, though I still look away so that helps. I'm sure my neighbours wondered about the bruises on my arms in the lift at times

    Oh Luv.....

    I can understand when people..even one's you call your friends, don't know what to say in times like these. But perhaps a " I'm so very sorry this has happened to you all including your Angel Baby Faith. I so wish I could make it all better for you but I can't and nothing I'm going to say is going to really ease your heartbreak but know that I am thinking of you and your DH and your other Belly Bubba. Please let me know if there's anything I can do to help in any way big or small. I'm here for you at anytime you need a friend and some support" etc, etc.

    If you can't say something like that, then the best thing to do is STFU IMO!!!!xo

    so sorry to hear that, people are so crap at just saying "I'm sorry to hear that, take care, if theres anything i can do.." they say other stupid and hurtful things. Its always worse when they have been super fertile too. I think we've all had stuff said to us thats just bloody insensitive and downright stupid/hurtful.

    Can you get some counselling at all? It might be helpful as I can only imagine the stress its placing on you and your partner, not to mention the grief you are both feeling. Take care of yourself
