Last Night on Sister Wives Meri told of her infertility journey… Her loss, frustration, and anger.

As she told her journey, I heard those 4 ugly words… Not a viable pregnancy. Do they teach this at doctor sensitivity training? Really isn’t there a better way? How about some compassion?

Can you tell, I’ve heard these words too… You go to the doctors office… Excited to hear your baby’s heart beat.. Joy and hope and dreams consuming you, and then you are delivered a terrible blow. It is like having your heart ripped out, with a rusty, dull spoon.

I felt such pain for Meri. Not sure where she will end up with her desire to have another baby…

And just wanted to say how sorry I was to hear her story. My thoughts and prayers go out to her. I hope she can find ourhopeplace.com and/or her Sister wives can so they can help her!!!

Love them or not, admit it, we can’t help watching Sister Wives. I get all the negative stuff, plural marriage isn’t for me either. Instead, I draw parallels of the journey all 4 women have had while trying to have children. (get it too, there are a lot of kids… Not my point, just writing about the pain and loss they have suffered).

Think about yourself, your sisters, your sister in laws, best friends… Choose any 4, I suspect there has been infertility issues. Likely, more than one of you has felt the devastating pain of miscarriage. Another probably had some form of fertility help.

Meri has one child. While she would love more children, it seems she was lucky to have her one. At a time when she thought the idea of another child was behind her, she now seems to be open to having more children and trying. I am worried for her in that the promos seem like she has had a miscarriage. I will be watching on Sunday… Will you? I will be hoping she is doing well!

My one wish is that if she does have a miscarriage, that we offer support and not judgement. Miscarriage is devastating. While yes, it is her choice to live her life in the public eye. She didn’t choose to have a miscarriage. Let’s choose to be kind.
