Sometimes I just wonder why....

Does bad news come in threes?


First, my dear friend (and coworker) had her second IVF (1st FET). They transferred two very high quality embryos. Wonderfully, she found out she was pregnant. Only to find that BOTH the embryos were ectopic. Unbelievable. "Fortunately" they both resolved on their own.

Next, sweet Augusta had tragic news regarding what seemed to be such a promising pregnancy.

And now thirdly, another coworker has just informed my boss that her pregnancy of nearly 12 weeks has taken a tragic turn as well.

I hope the saying of bad news coming in threes is true, because I just don't think I can handle any more right now.

...sigh...

Oh, I am very sorry for all the three ladies you spoke of.

I read Augusta's news on Egghunt's blog, and did visit her then.

Hope you are doing okay.

Oh man, so sorry for your friend and for you. I hope the bad news is over also.

Dear Brenda, Thank you so much for all the support you gave me during the time of my m/c. It was always so comforting to find your kind words in my comments box. Thank you for keeping me in your thoughts.
I hope that the bad news stops for a while.

Hey Brenda,

Thank you for leaving those very sweet words on my blog.

I hope you are well.

P.S. It is July, you know.

Thank you Brenda for your good thoughts and prayers. I'm so sorry to hear about your dad as well. It really is scary when things like this happen. All my best to you! And I'll be praying your father makes a speedy recovery as well.

It does feel that sometimes the pain is just too much. Augusta's loss hit me like a ton of bricks. It just all feels so unfair and arbitrary.
