Hello all. It's been awhile... Again.
We've had a pretty eventful and somber holiday season in my house. Just after Thanksgiving I found out I was pregnant. I had the same terrible morning sickness as with my first pregnancy ( I lost nine pounds and w Betty I ended up losing around twenty) I think it was a girl but I was just starting to call it Abel/ Eloise. At just over nine weeks we learned in the emergency room that our baby had passed. That was the day the Mayans said the world was supposed to end. This past Sunday I had complications with the miscarriage and ended up having to spend the night in the hospital before having a procedure to stop the miscarriages natural progression and get it over with. It's all been less than pleasant as I'm sure you can imagine but I know there was a very good reason that our baby was called back and I'm still grateful for her and for my pregnancy. I would love to have many more children but it's all in Gods timing, of course and the great news I take away from this experience is that I am able to have more children. I would also love to adopt and we, as a family, are currently exploring that as an option. We're trying to find a home to buy closer to my husband's work and it's fun to imagine all of the possibilities. This past month in particular has been quite emotional. Just after the miscarriage we also had the flu and i felt really isolated and alone. I kept thinking of our old home and our old community and I missed it so much. But when I had to go back to the hospital I was overwhelmed by the amount of support we had from loved ones and from some people we barely knew. So many people were praying for us and were available to us. We had more help than we knew what to do with and it was wonderful. Because of this experience I feel like we're part of a community for the first time since we moved here a year ago and I'm truly happy to be here. I would, of course, have rather not gone through it if I'd had my choice but I know God has a plan and I need to trust in that. I am grateful for all of those days and I would like to thank everyone for their support. God bless
