I Survived

I'm in my PJ's and ready to get in bed, so this is just a quick update to say that I am alive!

Yesterday I started to have lots of pain and it was getting pretty intense last night. I even had Marcus come home from the fire station. I am so glad I did.

I ended up miscarrying the baby on my own. That's probably not the right verb, but you get the picture. Anyway, it was the middle of the night and I hated every second of it. I kept telling Marcus, " I don't want to do this!" I didn't have a choice.

We called the dr this morning and I had to go in to make sure that I didn't have to have the surgery today. Thankfully I didn't. There is still more to go, but it shouldn't be as painful.

I am so grateful for all your well wishes and prayers. I appreciate it more than you will ever know.

I will give you all a review after my movie marathon!

Believe me when I say I know how unbelievably painful that is. After that, the pain was never as bad for me. So hopefully the worst is over (physically anyways). You & Marcus remain in our prayers. Hope you enjoy your movie fest! You deserve it.

Aww! So sorry for you loss. I have been there. Had 3 D&C's cuz I wouldn't miscarry on my own, and this last time I did do it on my own. The last 2 times felt like labor. Since having two natural births I knew what labor really felt like. You doc should have prescribed a script for you, and if not I hope you at least were ablt to take 3 or 4 advil. :-(

Oh Dina, how I KNOW exactly what you're feeling. I miscarried in November and it was (and sometimes still is) awful! Miscarriage itself is so painful...but then you're left with the emptiness afterward! All my prayers and love!

Dina - heartbroken for you all! MANY MANY prayers through this sad time. God bless you all as you go through the days ahead. I have been out of the loop for awhile (crazy busy). We said good-bye to one of our dear Uncles/sudden heart-attack. May the love of family and friends help heal your heart. HUGS! oxox, Christina

This is so odd because I hadn't read your blog in a couple weeks. I also miscarried in March. I was only 6.5 weeks, but it was still so painful and heart breaking. I'm so sorry for your loss and wish you all the best in your healing process.
