A little something about miscarriage

There are parts of the online infertility community that like to poke fun at Michelle Duggar. For those of you even less in tune with popular culture than I am, she and her husband are evangelical Christians with 19 kids and a reality show about their lives. They recently lost their most recent pregnancy in the second trimester. Obviously I don't share her faith or her family planning beliefs, but I was dismayed when some folks on a ravelry group dealing with pregnancy loss said they didn't feel sorry for her. I would not wish that kind of a loss on anyone. Someone else in a different thread in the same group linked to an article that I found much more supportive and appropriate.
