TADA...... 2 weeks later we got 2 pink lines. September 18, 2010...We couldn't believe it happened that fast. We thought for sure it would take at least 4-6 months. We couldn't hold back our excitement and we told everyone, i mean everyone!! Including announcing it on Facebook.
A couple of days later I was reading the What to Expect When Your Expecting blogs and started seeing all the blogs about the May moms (my due date) having miscarriages. Although I didn't think that would ever happen to me, I started checking for blood every time I went to the bathroom. (Sorry if TMI) I started to feel like maybe we jumped the gun by telling everyone so soon.
About 6:30 A.M on September 30th 2010 about 5 1/2 weeks pregnant I saw what I was dreading, BLOOD AND A LOT OF IT. I immediately panicked and started bawling. Rob rushed in and hugged me trying to make me feel better. Something in my gut just said this was not going to end well. We had a ton of amazing family and friends supporting us over the next three days. I had so many people tell me they bled during their pregnancy and I was going to be fine.
Monday October 4th 2010 I got the dreaded news that we had a miscarriage. I was beside myself, I didn't know how to tell Rob. I felt like it was all my fault at first knowing that it was my body that rejected it. I know now that this is all part of Gods plan and we are going to be just fine. But at that moment in time I felt like my world was crumbling around me.
GOOD NEWS: We had our first check up about 10 days post miscarriage and the Dr. gave us the go ahead to start trying again! So here we are this is our blog on our journey to parenthood. Someway somehow someday we will be parents, it is all up to the Lord and I am so glad you are all here to watch it unfold!
