How do you tell people you had a miscarriage? ?
When I was 19 I think I had a miscarriage but never went to the doctor about it because I was so freaked out. When I became pregnant I asked DH not to tell anyone until I go to the doctor and I'm past a miscarriage stage. DH secretly told his siblings and his mom who told everyone else. I didn't get to announce my first pregnancy and what do I tell people if I miscarry?
The possible miscarriage happened years before I met DH.
I feel bad that InLaws announced my pregnancy and not me. I'm not sure they knew it was supposed to be a secret. My blabbed it despite our agreement but you can't untell people.

"Unfortunately we lost the pregnancy."
Or "baby," if that's the verbage you prefer. You don't have to go into depth unless you want.
FWIW a single first-trimester miscarriage (if you actually had one) does NOT increase your risk for future losses. It's usually just one of those things.

You would say, "We lost the baby."
Why do you believe you had a miscarriage?
