I have some very sad news.

I started cramping really bad on Thursday night, then passed a bunch of thick blood and tissue. I knew from past experience I was having a miscarriage.

We went to the doctor Friday morning and they confirmed the baby was still in my womb, but it had died. The most likely cause is a chromosomal issue. They tried to tell us that if we had a special kind of IVF that isolated only healthy embryos, we could still have a healthy baby in the future, but DH and I agreed this is the end of the road for us. My body has been through so much the last few years. We can't go through any more of this. Maybe we'll adopt or maybe we'll remain childless. It really is too soon and too painful right now to think about it.

I had an emergency D&C yesterday at 1pm. I am a little sore, but not too bad.

Emotionally I got a lot of grief out yesterday. DH and I cried and cried and cried. We had everyone in the doctor's office and the clinic crying too. They were so touched by our sadness and we were very touched by their compassion.

I'm married to the most wonderful man in the world, though. He held me and loved me yesterday through everything. If it ends up being just me and him, then I'm still the luckiest woman int he world.

I'll be leaving you after this post, but you wonderful ladies will be in my thoughts and prayers. I hope you have wonderful pregnancies and happy, healthy babies.
