It's no secret here that I had a miscarriage in December of 2011. It is, however, sort of still a secret on Facebook and I'm not sure why but either way, that's the way it is. Lately, I've been talking a little more openly about it in comment form and whatnot but I never really addressed the fact that I had posted about being pregnant and then after the miscarriage, I basically deleted any reference to it. After that incident, I posted a little more about beer and figured everyone would just sort of put two and two together on their own. I'm friends with a lot of Husband's family and friends and he is much more private about such things than I am. It's the same reason we never really publicly announced Kiyah had been put down.
Personally, I don't know how I feel about Beyonce being some sort of spokesperson for miscarriage all of a sudden. It seems strange to me. Am I making this uglier than it needs to be? Maybe. Deep down inside, I feel like this is a tactic to bring attention to her new album and that we are expected to applaud Beyonce for her bravery. She basically said she used the sadness following her loss to write the first song on her new album. I'm also curious as to whether Beyonce talking about her miscarriage will be helpful to anyone. It sure would be nice if her "coming out" would take some of the taboo away from miscarriages which are obviously far more frequent than anyone wants to talk about until you've had one but I'm just not sure that's what will happen here.
There. I feel better now.
