I miscarried recently.
Not everyone is going to understand how you feel. To outsiders, it was "just a miscarriage." To you it was your baby, with all the hopes and dreams that come with babies. It does not matter whether you had a positive pregnancy test yesterday or if you were full-term -- this was YOUR CHILD. You were the mother (or father) and you deserve the time and freedom to grieve this loss.
If you find your friends and family are not as supportive as you need, please visit one of the bulletin boards, where there is a wonderful group of women who will hold you up no matter what.  When I dreaded going to my follow-up visit and face a waiting room of pregnant women, other women told me what to do and encouraged me. I can't tell you how much they helped me.
One thing I did to help my husband understand how I was feeling was to read the book "Empty Cradle, Broken Heart" by Deborah Davis to him out loud whenever we were in the car. 
There are a number of additional subjects about miscarriage on this site that will talk about the issues you are facing now, from bleeding and pain to handling your grief and people who say thoughtless things. Check out the topics page. A few I'd like to point out:
