miscarriage as a process

I read someone's comment to my miscarriage tips post today and it got me thinking. In having been through two miscarriages, and recalling the fearful period between knowing it has failed and actually miscarrying, that it is important to understand the process.

I think miscarriage is something you have to go THROUGH. It isn't like pullIng out stitches while sewing, or hitting undo on the computer. The process of becoming pregnant and then unpregnant do not mirror each other. There are some hormones common to each, but chemicals and processes unique to each.
