Need some magic back in my life

The last few months have been such a roller coaster in my life. We went on our first disney cruise in December and had the time of our lives. I still haven't started my trip report because of the roller coaster that has ensued since we returned. The week after we got back from the cruise I found out that I was pregnant with our third child....huge surprise since my youngest is 6...nonetheless we were ecstatic...then the first trimester morning sickness and exhaustion set in and when I wasn't at work I was on my couch sleeping. In fact the pregnancy and exhaustion forced me to cancel my trip to WDW in Feb for my birthday and to run the Princess Half.

Last week was the 12 week mark and I was finally starting to feel better and ready to start my trip report and share my amazing trip with you all. Unfortunately my world came crashing down on Friday when we were told that I had suffered a miscarriage and our precious baby was no longer alive. To say i have been crushed is an understatement....12 weeks was supposed to be that safe point in a pregnancy when the fear of miscarriage goes away.

I have spent the last week trying to physically recover and am slowly trying to get a grip on the emotional recovery. Ironically at this point I would love nothing more than to run away to the work or another cruise and forget about all of this....unfortunately that's not going to happen so I will forge ahead.....

And I promise that soon I will start that trip report if for any other reason than to brighten my mood

I'm so sorry.

Such a sad thing to happen to your family.


I had a neighbor that was told her pregnancy was no longer viable and they scheduled her for a D&C. She'd had bleeding and they couldn't find a heartbeat. Luckily the morning of her procedure the doctors did some testing and an ultrasound and found that her doctor had been wrong and her baby was alive. The rest of her pregnancy went well, thank goodness.

I say this just in case......

HUGE HUGE HUGE hugs!!!!!!!!!!! I lost my ds at 18.5 wk gestation. It was horrible. You feel as though you are in the "safe" zone and then you get slapped in the face with a m/c. It hurts so much. The grief is real. I found people dismissed it and gave "reasons" why it happened, which did NOT take away the pain. It hurt. It takes awhile to put it aside (you never forget it). It has been 8 yrs now. I still remember the date, and every Christmas, we put up his orinment on the tree. I have had a dd since then, but she isn't a replacement for ds. Yes, I have moved on, but I won't forget.
If you want to pm me, please do. I get it. I am soo sorry!!!!

I'm so sorry. I know the pain of miscarriage too. With being able to find out so early you're pregnant, a lot of women who ordinarily would just think they had a "False alarm" are finding they had a pregnancy that ended too soon.
I think for me, what hurt the most was that no-one knows what to say, so they pretend it never happened. Like that 3 months of my life simply vanished.
Give yourself time and space to grieve, and understand that others may seem distant not because they don't care, but because they really do not know what to say or do.
Pixies to you and your family.

As others have said, even if there are 'reasons' it never takes away the pain. For those of us who have suffered that pain it is very real. There are no words I can say that will make the pain go away, but please know that you are being upheld by many people who understand and care about you deeply!! Take your time in recovering! Your passporter family is here for you!
