I just had a miscarriage. I think, had I had a miscarriage first, I would have thought it was the worst thing in the world. It would have devastated me. Now? I'm just thankful I wasn't further along. I'm thankful there wasn't a heartbeat. And no, I won't count this as one of my children. I've been through many fertility treatments, including multiple IVF cycles... and to me this feels far more like a failed cycle. It is frustrating and anger-inducing and very sad.... but I'm not grieving a child, I didn't hold a baby in my arms, I didn't carry one for 36 weeks and *know* them.

I think it's all very personal how someone thinks about their losses. But for me... no, not the same at all.

2 IVF babies and 1 surprise!
