I had a miscarriage early this year, and yes, I'm terrified to try again. I want to, of course, but I don't look forward to months of fear that it will happen again. I'm someone who has an irrational sense that they can always fix things--it's more than disconcerting to be so out of control of what's going on within your own body.

I have so much sympathy for Chrissy Tiegen, and I'm so appreciative of the way she shared her family's experience. Especially with how common miscarriage is, each woman who goes through it shouldn't have to feel so alone.
