"Some women are very sad and others are rattled to the core, but soon get their bearings and go on to the next pregnancy," she said.

Even with Barbara Bush's New England stoicism, who's to say what is normal, even in the Republican Party.

Former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum and his wife Karen have seven children, including the "one in heaven" that they lost in the 20th week of pregnancy in 1996. The child lived a few hours after birth.

According to Karen Santorum's book, "Letters to Gabriel," they brought his little body home to let the other children see and hold him before burial. They were a lot younger than George W. Bush, at 6, 4 and 1 1/2.

Santorum kept the framed photo of Gabriel Michael, his fourth child, on a shelf next to an autographed baseball in his Senate office.

"That's my little guy," he bragged to the Washington Post in 2005, nearly a decade after the miscarriage.
