We fell in love in 2004, got married in 2007. Three years later, in 2010, we decided to take our relationship one step ahead. She was pregnant and it was twin pregnancy. Everything was normal till the 8th week. The USG revealed that the embryo was not growing. The doctor recommended an abortion next day. We were heartbroken.
It was a sad event, but we came out of it more mature. An event like these brings couples together. It is common for couples to feel guilty when a miscarriage happens, “Did we do something wrong?”. But the truth is, no one is responsible. It is a natural loss of pregnancy.
We later realized that early pregnancy loss is very common. Around 15-20% of all pregnancies are failed one and there can be 1000s of reasons for it. But since these things are well kept secret in our society, we hardly get to know about them. What happens, happens for good. Nature is not perfect; failed pregnancy is nature’s way of eliminating its defective creation. Natures know best, and there is no point crying over it.
