...And the Lord taketh away

I'm not one that generally shares my entire personal life over the internet, but I suppose this needs to be said, since I told the internet that we were expecting a baby...

Early yesterday morning I had a miscarriage. The embryo had never developed from the little ball of cells that is present about 2-3 weeks into pregnancy. My body didn't realize this for 6 more weeks, and I had no idea until two days ago that something might be wrong. The doctors say that in this type of situation, there was probably a chromosomal abnormality, and the pregnancy terminates itself rather than develop into an abnormal fetus. They couldn't give a reason as to why it took my body so long to figure it out.

After 2 ER visits and a minor surgery, I am physically fine. We plan on trying again once we are able, and hopefully the Lord will bless us with a healthy, perfect baby. Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers as we go through this difficult time.

Oh, I am so sorry for your loss. I have been reading your site for a while, watching your progress and comparing it to ours (in our 1903 foursquare), but I don't think I have ever commented. De-lurking to express my condolences.

My thoughts are with you. I too lost a baby at about 10 weeks years ago (and two children ago)....projects are a good way to heal and prepare.....
