Thank you

23 Nov

Thanks to everyone who have sent me e-mails or phoned in the last couple of days.  You can’t possibly know how much it has helped to have gotten so many messages of love and support. 

It’s cheered me up so much, that I’m actually feeling a lot more positive that this might all turn out with a healthy baby after all.  I’m still bleeding a bit, but not as much, and the number of times I’ve heard people say they had friends who had similar experience and still had a baby has been comforting.

At the same time, I think I’m a bit more mentally prepared (though how could anyone really be prepared?) for the possibility of bad news.  I was wondering over the last few days why I’ve never really heard anything about miscarriage. I wondered, if the baby died and it was at an early stage (as in, too small to see) how would I know when everything’s over?  If the baby was a little bigger, would I see it?   With all the self-revealing information, TV shows, blogs etcetera out there, why have I never heard anything about what a miscarriage is actually like?

Well, as I’m sure you’ve already guessed, the information is out there, you just have to look for it.  I guess these experiences are so sad and so personal, they’re not usually right "out there".  And I guess not too many of us really want to look for it.  After finding some of the stories, I must say that I’m wondering if I ought to go back to the doctor and insist that he send me for an ultrasound.  Then we would at least know one way or the other.

Michael figures I must still be pregnant because I’m being so clumsy.  (Yesterday I managed to slam the edge of my middle finger in the closet doors and I am now sporting a beautiful black blood blister as a reward.)  I don’t know if that’s a good sign or not, but I’m willing to go with it for now.
