Update on me
I just wanted to thank you all of you for your sweet comments and all of the emails that I have received. It means the world to me that you are thinking of me during my difficult time.
While these last couple of days have been really hard on me I'm finally feeling a bit more like myself.
I know people are curious as to what has me so upset so I thought I would share.
On Jon's birthday I found out I was pregnant! We were so excited. We had been trying for over a year and had just gone through one cycle with an infertility doctor. We told close family and friends and we were going to wait to tell everyone on Thanksgiving.
Last saturday I had to go in for a sonogram. Because I got pregnant on fertility meds my pregnancy was considered high-risk so I had already been for 2 sonograms before week 8. On saturday we had sonogram number 3. We should have heard a heartbeat, but we didn't and I was told the pregnancy wasn't viable.
Earth breaking news. I know miscarriages happen to a lot of women, but I just never thought it would happen to me. I waited this whole week to see if things would progress naturally. They haven.t I went in for another sonogram this morning just to double check. Things are still the same...no heartbeat.
I go in for a D&C on Monday.
Sorry for the rather heavy and depressing news on a normal light-hearted and design related blog, but I didn't want to lie about things and not tell all of my friends in the blog world. This blog is a huge reflection of me, my life and my work. This is something happening to me and I couldn't just put on a happy face and not tell you all.
I am feeling a bit better about things. I know these things happen. I know I didn't do anything to cause it.
Since I'm having the procedure on Monday I won't be back to blogging until Tuesday. I have an exciting two weeks ahead for the blog. Full of give-aways and gift ideas!
Thank you all again for your thoughts and prayers.
