Trying for another but just had 2nd miscarriage. Found out at work. Could barely talk. It's the worst thing ever. It's better now but don't know if we can keep trying. Hard to be thankful of anything😔

My wife had two in a six month period before she got pregnant with our now 2.5 year old. The first one was second trimester when we’d already told everybody. It’s absolutely terrible. Probably the hardest thing I’ve ever gone through. I’m so sorry. The one thing that made me feel better through the entire thing was that once I started talking about it I found a ton of people (moms and dads) who had gone through similar things and found that I could talk to them whenever I needed it. Again, I’m so sorry. Feel free to DM if you need somebody to talk to.

Appreciate everyone for chiming in. I think this conversation is a good reason why this platform exists. To raise and lift people up. From the bottom of my heart, thank you.

So very sorry OP. My wife had three miscarriages before we were able to have our first baby through IVF. I wanted to talk about it at the time but also didn’t want to bring people down by talking about it. I don’t think I realized how much it affected me at the time but looking back at that time I was really a shell of myself. Therapy helps as does talking to anyone you have in your life that you can talk to. Take the time to process if you can. Hug your wife. Thinking of you

I'm so very sorry for your loss. In between our first and second my wife had a miscarriage. It was brutal - we were totally unprepared for how hard it would be. Plus we felt like there was this weird stigma that prevented us from talking about it. We've both since decided that that stigma is stupid and just prevents people from getting the emotional support that they need at a very difficult time. So you're doing the right thing by talking about it. It's really hard. Take some time to grieve. Happy to talk more in private if you like.

Bye bye Accenture, I joined about a year ago as an experienced hire and have been on a project about 6 months out of 13 (50% chargeability). The leadership needs a program to help experienced hire to adjust in the company. Consulting, the "networking", PowerPoint making isn't just for me. I have a technical background and was losing my skills since I joined. Accenture is a great company and I'd advise anyone to leverage the countless training provided.
