I never wanted kids. It took my wife seven years to finally wear me down enough to agree to "try" for a child. First month we try, bam, pregnant. So my wife is happy, because all she wanted to do was have a family. About 10 weeks in, she starts to cramp and bleed... Then it goes downhill. We end up in the ER, and find out she miscarried... on fucking Mother's Day. Devastating and cruel, all at once.

We waited that six weeks of "pelvic rest" and then tried again. First month trying, bam, pregnant. Miscarriages are quite common; more common than people think. My wife felt like something was wrong with her, but after she announced it, we found out that half our friends had miscarried as well.

Still, it seems like no one you know has a miscarriage, because there's some sort of stigma attached to it. I hope your daughter can, ahem, get back on that horse.

Sorry for your family's loss. As Oahu noted, it's pretty common. A 1988 article say 31% of pregnancies end that way. 80% of those in the first 12 weeks. More recent estimates half that number. But I'm sure are of small solace if any to the those impacted.

This article

https://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/...n_4116712.html

comments on some of the reasons.


Quote:
roughly 60 percent of miscarriages occur when an embryo has an abnormal number of chromosomes during fertilization — a problem that happens by chance, not as a result of anything the parents did.
and notes that


Quote:
The study shows that women and couples who experience miscarriage may pay a high emotional price because there is a lack of knowledge about how common miscarriage is and its causes. About 40 percent of the women who had a miscarriage said they felt they had done something wrong to cause it, and 47 percent felt guilty.
BTW, another article mentioned that women can ovulate two weeks after a miscarriage. What a roller coaster of emotions.

Best wishes!

The school that I graduated from, that my daughter now goes to, adopted a hybrid-form of the Montessori principles (the school is K-12). I'll say this: it's not for everyone. I'm used to old-school rote learning. It's very, very different.

The kids often don't know what they're learning, because the lessons are real world and experiential. If they find something a child is really into, they'll let that kid run with it. My niece is at the same school; she had a classmate that wrote a basic screenplay (in the 1st grade) and the class acted it out. Crazy stuff.

Again, though, it really depends on the child. If your child is shy and reserved, he/she may not succeed in the Montessori system. He/she could end up getting lost in the shuffle. Also, if the child doesn't have some basic discipline, he/she will not get anything out of it.

My wife is pregnant and it will be our first pregnancy . We are expecting identical triplets!!! This was natural by the way which is extremely rare they don’t really have statistics on it it’s so rare. Basically it’s about 1 in 200 million chance you can get natural identical triplets.

Anybody got any advice? Please I’ll need it
