My husband and I have been trying for almost a year, and I’ve just confirmed with my doctor that I’ve had a miscarriage this past week. I haven’t told anyone other than my husband, I am still working like usual. It’s hard to respond when people ask how I am doing.

So sorry to hear that. Life plans such as having a baby are more important than your career in the long run. If you need more time and less stress to focus on life plans maybe take some time off from work. Best of luck!


I’m so sorry

I’m so very sorry and I would suggest looking at your bereavement policy. If you feel the need to take the time off, you should do it. I’ve been there and I just kept working to keep my mind off of it. I was really thankful to be working from home.

I am so sorry for your loss. I have experienced the same thing, and I know how hard it is.

I recently watched a YouTuber sharing her experience. You might find it helpful. You are not alone.

I'm so sorry for your loss. Please take at least a day or two to allow yourself to grieve. With my first miscarriage I didn't know what to do with myself, so I went to a spa to get a massage, thinking maybe it would just help alleviate the pain and stress. I ended up just crying it out on the table. I had to wait a little over a week for the D&C after that, so it was especially hard working through it.

With my second I was emotionally numb and thankfully was able to schedule the D&C a day after finding out so I could talk some days off to heal and grieve.

With both I was very down and pretty quiet at work and at home for at least 3 weeks after. No one can understand what you're going through unless they've dealt with it. It's a real loss, despite what any idiots try to tell you, and you deserve the time you need to get though it. Wishing you lots of healing and future happiness on this journey.

I’m so sorry. Please take care of yourself, and if you’re comfortable sharing with your coach or someone else you trust at the office, please do. Your people will want to support you however they can.

I need some advice. 2nd marriage and I make 3x what my husband makes. We have a prenup but did combine finances but are now having money issues. I have issues that he’s planning to continue to provide child support past his daughter’s high school graduation, I contribute significantly into my step children’s 529s but he wants to take loans to pay the rest (bc he didn’t save before he met me), and other similar things. I know money was historically a stressor for him and thus wanted to cont.


So I’m torn if I want to have bridesmaids or not. I have 3 friends who I have been friends with since the 6th grade but for the last 5 years we have definitely drifted apart because we live no where near each other. However we have always talked about being in each other’s weddings and they want to throw my bachelorette party. I just feel like they don’t really know me anymore and it wouldn’t be unfair to my closer friends for me to ask these three to also be bridesmaids. On top of that one...
