You know when you fill out doctors forms and it asks how may pregnancies and such? Well today I had to fill out some forms for Joey and it asked about my history. It says on there how many pregnancies, I answered 6, it asked how many "elective abortions" I answered 0, then it asked how many "spontaneous abortions" and I wanted to scream. I did answer the question but I hate when I read that. Then it went on to ask which pg number "this child" is, so of course I put 6. And my mind wandered back in time. I remember the excitement when I found out I was pg with my 1st angel. I had bought the test on our way to Disneyland, with the plan of taking it as soon as we got home, but instead I couldn't wait and took it 1/2 way through the day while still in the Park. Positive. The next day was DS1's bday so I didn't tell anyone, I wanted that to be HIS special day, it was his first birthday. The day after his birthday I woke up bleeding and I felt my heart had been ripped from me. Then the second one is all a blur. They actually put me on meds to keep me calm and I remember so little about it. I slept through most of it and the days after. Then the last one, my last angel was by far the hardest for me, because of the time spent waiting for another ultrasound, another confirmation, another doctor, pre-ops, D&C, and the time they had me sitting in the Outpatient surgery waiting room. I still don't know how I got through it.

I hate those stupid forms. The least they could do if phrase it better than spontaneous abortions. I mean COME ON PEOPLE!!! And I don't quite get how they need to know that info to assess Joey's development. Its MY info.

I agree, the terminology is awful!
