Ups and Downs

I really want to be a good blogger but it's just not working out so well. I'll keep trying.

News on the baby front....Wednesday I took a home pregnancy test and found out that we were pregnant...YAY! I took another one Thursday (positive) and another on Friday (3:15 am...positive) so we were very excited. We shared the news with our families, scheduled an appt with my doctor, and got really, REALLY happy. Then Saturday came. I worked the LISD job fair in the morning, ate lunch, and took a nap. Around 2 I woke up and had a little bit of spotting. Well, my little bit of spotting turned into bleeding. It happened off and on all day Saturday and Sunday and into Monday. This morning I went to the dr and we're not exactly positive what is going on but there is no sac causing us to assume it was a chemical pregnancy (very early miscarriage where the embryo doesn't implant to the uterine lining). I had blood work done today and go back on Wednesday to find out exactly what is happening.

So that is obviously sad however Chris and I are excited that we can get pregnant on our own! We've been praying since we've visited the infertility specialist that a door would close on IVF if it wasn't what we were suppose to do and we're believing this was a door SLAM. Everything I've read has said that most women go on from chemical pregnancies to have a healthy pregnancy. We are mourning our loss but joyous that God has answered our prayers.

Oh Kristin, I am so sorry. But like you said, the good news is that you now know that you and Chris CAN get pregnant on your own. And hopefully the blood tests will help piece everything together and you can go on from there. We're thinking and praying for you both.
