Did you also know that it is Infant and Pregnancy Loss month?
What I haven’t written about is the second miscarriage I had in October 2008.
Ironically, Infant and Pregnancy Loss month.
We had been in Maui.
I was 13 weeks pregnant.
We flew direct from Maui on a red-eye to Colorado to spend a weekend at The Broadmoor.
Both were reward trips that Ryan had earned at work.
We dropped Reece off at my parents house in Genesee and drove down to Colorado Springs.
I was hanging in there, but feeling a little off.
And, then I started bleeding.
We had to leave The Broadmoor early.
We stopped at an Urgent Care on the way to my parents house, but they couldn’t help me.
Honestly, after that I can’t remember exactly what order things happened in, but I do know that we went to the ER where they confirmed that there was no longer a heartbeat. For some reason, we went back to my parents house…maybe to wait until the next day for a D&C?!
I was in a lot of pain and bleeding, so we went back that night.
I had gone through a miscarriage at home before.
I couldn’t fly on a plane to go home to Portland in my condition.
On Saturday, October 25th, 2008 we lost our second baby.
I’m sharing this with you because I think we all need to share our struggles. Our hard times.
I’ve had some. I continue to have some. And, I will have some in the future.
It is Infant and Pregnancy Loss month.
If you have lost a pregnancy, I have been there with you.
home is…sharing pieces of me.
