Thank you for sharing your story. I hope it brings some comfort to other people struggling after a pregnancy loss. I know folks don't necessarily want to announce a loss because of that anticipated secondary trauma, but my heart goes out to those grieving alone who might find comfort from those that love them, too. Silence usually only compounds the pain, like the folks who avoided you at your sister's wedding. I'm sorry they didn't just give you a hug and let you know that they were thinking of you and your family. I think many of us feel uncomfortable when we know others have suffered, but ignoring the pain can be more hurtful than saying something well-meaning but awkward.
