The Truly Unexplainable

I only just had my miscarriage last night.

Yeah, how crazy is that?! Friday I began to have cramps and what I thought was my monthly friend. By Sunday afternoon the cramps and bleeding had only gotten worse. Yesterday morning I called my midwife and she said that while that can be quite normal for the first couple months after a miscarriage, if I don't think it's normal for me they want to check it out further. She asked that I call her on Wednesday to let her know how I was doing.

The cramps had increased by yesterday afternoon to the point that they were full blown contractions. They were so painful that I couldnt speak through them. I fell asleep for a bit late in the afternoon and when I woke up I felt alot better. I made dinner and went about life. I put Natalie to bed and went to take care of my personal needs. As I was, I felt something slip from my body. (Sorry if this is gross...) It was the gestationaly sack, the size of a deflated golf ball. I am absolutely stunned by this. I had dealt with the loss and thought that I had been done for weeks, then all of a sudden--There it is! Ten weeks after the pregnancy ended and 7 weeks after I found out about it, it finally passed.

My girlfriend told me this morning that she was amazed at how well I was handling the whole situation. But I can honestly say that I had already come to terms with everything and had begun to move on. I'm just so stunned that it happened now.

I even went in last week for my follow up appoinment and my midwife gave me the go ahead to start trying again if we wanted to. All my bloodwork had come back that I was done. Pregnancy test came back negative. If I would have had a second ultrasound like they wanted me to, they would have seen everything. I'm sure they would have wanted me to have a D&C. God knew better. He knew that I could handle it on my own. It may take my body a while, but eventually I'll get it done.

I just talked to the nurse and she was as surprised to hear this as I was. She'll talk with my midwife and call me back if I have to go back in.

So anyway, I just thought I'd give everyone an update. I tried not to be too graphic. This is just so bizarre!

Crazy...

    Melissa,
    I happened upon your myspace account and found out about your blog there. I just want you to know how terribly sorry I am about the baby and that I am amazed at the strength and faith that you and Scott have demonstrated throughout this. I can't imagine how difficult this has been for your family. Please know that you are in our prayers!
