How can I tell my daughter that I lost the baby in terms she will understand and not get too upset by?

I'm a true believer in if you make an issue out of something it becomes one.Tell her nothing unless she asks.Simpler terms..the baby went to heaven.

I agree..with kate.Just say they baby is gone to heaven and that is it, if they ask questions use your discreation when answering. I know where you are coming from I have had three mc and I am happy to say I also have 3 lovely boys. the ages are 14,6, and 4. and inbetween i have lost a few and have had to explain to 2 of them what has happened the 6yr old was a little young to understand so I said the baby was up in heaven. The older one i had to do a little more explaining to. And I only answered questions he wanted asked. Take care and my thoughts are with you.

Lynette - I must agree with the others, the simplest explanation is the best. When I came home from my D & C on Friday my 3 yr old nephew hugged my belly and said he knew I didn't have my baby anymore. I asked him how he knew and he said because mommy told him that the baby was called to heaven early. He just smiled and walked away. I've tried to gain his outlook on life, accept what is given and continue on. Children continue to surprise me with their maturity about life.
