Heading for the Light

Well, I finally had the physical miscarriage over the weekend. For those of you who have never had one...it is beyond awful. I can assure you that the doctor's briefing on the topic was not at all sufficient for the reality of the process. Had an especially traumatizing experience at the doctor's office this afternoon when they checked to make sure I'd had a 'total miscarriage' but I'll spare you the gory details.

I wouldn't wish this on my worst enemy.

But on the plus side, they said that we could start trying again in two months so that is the little piece of light I've been holding onto.

The husband and I are leaving tomorrow for Indianapolis. He has a convention and I'm taking a much needed break from everything familiar. I am so looking forward to this...dreading the 9 1/2 drive but it will all be worth it!

This has been a hard series of post for me to read. Basically, "Been there. Done that." only as a helpless husband who can do nothing but offer a support and a shoulder to cry. The mother of my children and I have two wonderful/healthy/beautiful girls.

The lesson I learned from our misadventure, I no longer shared the joyous news until she was three months along ( and passed most of the dangers ).

You will make a wonderful mother. Be fruitful and multiply ( and practice even when you are multiplying ).
