Hi ladies, I'm sorry I haven't been around in a while. Things have been really rough for the past couple of weeks.. I've been sick for the past 10 days or so with a spiking fever, body aches, nausea, headaches, etc. The whole bit. So I went to the doctor to get some tests done for things like Limes Disease, mono, and tuberculosis.. I doubt it's anything that big, but we just can't seem to figure out what it is.. I guess we're just trying to cover all the bases just to be safe. I'm taking antibiotics & stuff, though.. But I've just felt really crappy.. So essentially, I've been permanently attached to my bed..

And to top off the wonderfulness of being sick, AF finally showed up after waiting for her for 10 weeks.. Well, she kind of showed up.. She came, lasted not even 24 hours, and then left. And I just don't know how to feel. There's a part of me that's relieved, because I know I'm moving forward, at least physically, in my healing process.. But there's another part that didn't want her to come at all because that would mean that the babies are gone. I'm just so confused and don't know how to feel. It's all just so hard.. I keep thinking that this is good because it means that technically I could get pg again anytime I want now (which I wouldn't do anyways because I'm not in any kind of relationship at this point, but I use this just for argument purposes in my own head), but then again, I know that no subsequent pgs will ever bring back the babies that I've lost.. *sigh* I know you all understand what I mean...

So anyways, thanks for listening to my rant... If I'm feeling better, I should be leaving tomorrow afternoon for North Carolina to spend a week on the beach.. But I'm going to bring my laptop and hopefully be able to check in.. I've missed you ladies so much!! So again, thanks for listening..

A week at the beach may be just what you need!!!! I hope you feel well enough to go. I also hope that what you're experiencing is the bad case of the flu (flu season is just starting so maybe you got it early) and that nothing major is going on. I am so proud of you though for being proactive about your health! Great job!
I understand the conflictual emotions well...my AF isn't here either and part of me just wants it to hurry up but then another part of me wonders if it's delayed for a reason? Maybe I need more time? maybe something else is wrong? Maybe I am too stressed (which is highly likely)...I empathize greatly with that looming thought that no other baby will ever bring back the ones you've lost...I can cry at the drop of a hat if I let myself think of those little souls not being with me.
Stay strong. We're here for you when you return. I hope you're able to check in while sun bathing on the beach.
take care sweetie!

Thanks for the update, Nicole. Sorry you've been so sick. Not fun.

I hope the antibiotics and/or the tests get you all fixed up. A week at the beach sounds wonderful - I'm jealous! Here's hoping you'll feel well enough to enjoy it!!

Hope you feel better soon, and have fun at the beach! I'm in NC too, but not the beach part.

I was so glad to see an update from you - but not glad at all to see why you've been away. Please take very good care of yourself hun. It sounds like you've got some really bad bug going on & need to take it extra easy. Is it in anyway possible that it could be an infection relating to the loss? Have they checked that out? My big concern there is that you only got af for 1 day & it was so short. Many infections that are uterine can cause all the fever, chills, etc that you are describing. I know you saw the Dr - I just want to make sure your Dr is being very very thorough.

I hope you are feeling well enough to go to teh beach. It is really good to get some sun & fresh air when you've been in bed so long. I am hoping a tht is very minute you are lounging in hte sand with a great fruity drink & forgetting completely about everything (maybe even us ) for a few days. It's good to get a vacation from life!
