I guess it's about time that I actually posted about the last month and a half (or so) of my life. While this blog is about parenting and elimination communication, it's also sort of my journal, so this is a journaling post, and it's also a parenting post because, as parents, we still have live our lives even while trying to raise our children.
So, on April 1st, I found out that I was, indeed pregnant. I had been having some pregnancy symptoms, but the tests were showing up negative, so I went in to find out what else could have been causing my symptoms. Then, I scheduled an appointment with my OB and decided that would be great. However, I started bleeding. I called my OB, and they told me to go down for a blood test. I went, and the pregnancy hormone was higher than it was the day I went in to my family practice Dr., so I was encouraged. I stopped bleeding for a few days, and I was really excited. Then, I started bleeding again and went in for another blood test. I found out the day before I was supposed to leave for Boston that I was definately miscarrying the baby. The midwife told me to go anyway because I couldn't do any more for it here than I could there, and if I started to hemmorage, I should just go to the nearest emergency room. I'd been through all of that once before, so I figured that I could watch for the signs, and Ben and I left for Boston as planned. Thursday, the day we flew to Boston and rented the car was the worst of all the days. Cramps were bad, and I passed a few decent sized clots. I went to pick up my sister from the airport at midnight that night, and we all had a lot of fun while we were there. I think I posted at least once about Boston, so I'm going to leave that. I might put up a few pictures of this brief time in our lives on a Wordless Wednesday sometime.
However, Boston was great fun, and I'm so glad I went, but things didn't slow down once I got home. We left for the temple in Orlando the weekend I got home and then we all worked really hard to get ready for California. California to now is a whole different post, so I may post about it tomorrow. Good luck to all. Smile big.
