I'm so sorry, but you are still young...

Dear lifeylife...

A young girl, came to the obs-gyn clinic, complaining of having vaginal bleeding and was really concern of her 14-week-old-first-pregnancy. I sent her to the gyn chair, checked where were the bleeding from and confirmed it came from the little opening of the cervix. "It might be a miss-carriage", I told her, and I could see her blank eyes went watery and filled with sadness. "But let's just confirm it with a transvaginal USG, ok?", somehow, I felt a rush of guilty feeling filled my empty heart when I saw a little hope in her smile when she nodded her head.

Moments later, her turn for the USG came. She eagerly stole a glance at the monitor in every little opportunity she had, hoping to see her little baby move, but immediately she was sent to a very great despair when we confirmed the miss-carriage.

I patted her forearm, "you are still very young, don't be sad, there will be another one soon, don't worry", and then explained to her that we need to do a curretage to make sure the bleeding stops.

Truthfully, I know, every time I said "it's going to be ok", it will not change much, coz she had lost her baby she hoped for. It is sad u know, the one who really wants a baby, ended up having a miss-carriage, but the one who didn't, gave birth to a very healthy baby and ended up leaving the baby near a dustbin. Life is so unfair...
