GET UPDATES FROM Lindsay San Giacomo
LIndsay San Giacomo is a former T.V. news producer turned full-time stay-at-home mom and part-time P.R. consultant. When she's not running after her adorable 2-year-old, she's honestly probably sleeping. But she dreams of one day becoming a writer. She holds a B.A. in Journalism from New York University, which means she's used to asking the questions and thus is completely unprepared for parenting a toddler. You can follow her on her personal blog, www.lindsaysopenletters.blogspot.com, which she's totally going to start updating on a regular basis. Maybe.

The first rule of miscarriage is you don't talk about miscarriage.
