Sharing Some Sad News With My Blog Family

Hello All,

I wanted to share some sad news with my blog family, since I feel like I can share my feelings with you.

I had a secret last week, and did not share it with you all. My hubby and I had found out last Monday that we were pregnant! What awesome news! It was something we have been trying for for quite some time. The reason I did not let any of you know is because I have had 3 previous miscarriages for unknown reasons.

It turns out, I do have a clotting disorder that we found out after MULTIPLE rounds of testing last summer. I was instructed to start taking baby Aspirin. Also, I had smoked and I gave it up, COLD TURKEY! So, finding out we were pregnant again, and with taking the baby Aspirin, AND quitting smoking, we were SO hopeful that this would work!

Sadly, yesterday, that all crashed. I found out on Monday that my HCG levels had dropped from my blood work done the previous Thursday to Saturday. As you know, your HCG must DOUBLE every 48 hours. Mine doubled alright, but doubled backwards. I knew what it ment....miscarriage. And yesterday it happened.

It SUCKS and its a VERY shitty situation to be in. And I am NOT sorry for saying that. I am VERY angry, confused, and most of all sad. I have found comfort in an online friend who was kind enough to make the badges that I know display PROUDLY on my page. I love my angel babies, and I have them looking out for me, my little guy, and my hubby. I am waiting for the day when I can meet them!

Here are my badges of my angel babies:

 (13 weeks)
 (5w 1d )
 (5 weeks)
Thank you all for allowing me to share some of my feelings. I have left off some things that I was feeling cause its because I am angry. I know I would hate myself for saying some things in anger, so I am leaving it be.

I am so glad that I have such a supportive husband who knew that crafting would take my mind off all of this. He has given me all day the last few days to be crafty and not bother with anything. He wants me to mourn my angel baby, but not consume me with sadness. He wants me to know it was for a reason and that we WILL find an answer one day, and that God will bless us with another baby, that is healthy, when the time is right.

So sorry to hear the sad news, Jessica! If you need a friend to talk to~ you know where to find me! Big hugs to you!

Jessica said...

Jessica, hun, please keep your chin up and know that it was for a reason, a Heavenly reason. I understand your sorrow 100% and if you need to talk, you can call me. I can message you my number if you want on FB. I experienced a miscarriage in 2005 and in 2007 found out I had a clotting disorder as well. My doctor called it MTHFR and it required me to be on Lovenox injections during my entire pregnancy with my son and for the first few months of my pregnancy in 2008 with my daughter. The shots were tedious, but the precaution was well worth getting "stuck" each day in the belly. Please vent all you want. There are many who will understand and no one can complain about what YOU want to write at your's YOUR BLOG! Hugz sweet Blend!

I am so sorry for your loss. Its a horrible feeling. I only had 1 and that tore me apart. My sister had 4 over the years and I saw her lose more faith with each and everyone...but her faith kept her at it and she just gave birth to her 4th even when dr's told her one would be a miracle. So I'll be praying for you. And vent away.

Hugs to you.

Im so srry to hear this Jessica! i know the feeling my love! I too have had miscarriages. I know what it is to feel like what have I done to deserve this! I believe God puts obsticles in our life because he knows we are strong enough to get through them! He would never give us something we cannot bear. This is part of his plan and trust me when the time is right it will happen! I hope I have't offended you by talking about God. I've been in your shoes and felt like no body understood me so I got on my knees and prayed about it! Please feel free to contact me!
I will keep you and your family in my prayers!
Hugs, Wandy♥

Jessica, I just read this. I'm playing catch up after having my own personal issues recently and missing out on a lot in the blogging world. My heart truly goes out to you and your family. All the feelings you are feeling, are justified. Feel them, and work through them. Please know that there are many of us out here that are a listening ear so lean on us.

Lots of HUGS.
