Baby Brain: Finding my Peace

It has been three weeks since Mr. Rogue and I lost our baby... three very long weeks. Of course it has been extremely difficult to not only bear the physical changes to my body and hormones but also the mental changes and anguish I have had to deal with… however one positive thing has emerged, I can see that therapy has done me a great service in facing and dealing with my sadness over losing the baby. In other words it’s working.

I went in to the doctor for my checkup to make sure I was healing ok and that everything was alright and I am happy to say that everything is great on that front. We were told to wait two months before starting to try again. Two months seems such a very long time but of course in the grand scheme of things two months is barely a blip. I can hardly wait to get pregnant again.

Hi, it's me Alissa, ya know, from the new blog you've been following and so kind to have been commenting on.

Well, your baby posts are personal, but I've got to let you know that I had a long road to my three lovely children. We were married nearly 8 years when our son was finally born. I'd had 5 miscarriages and long stints of not becoming pregnant in between. I finally found the right fertility doc for me and with the help of IUI, Hugo was conceived. When he was nearly 2 we tried IUI again and it worked. 10 weeks later I found out the heart beat ceased and had the D&C two days before Thanksgiving. It took me some time to get my courage up to try again. We did the IUI for the third time, didn't take, well, I think it did but then I lifted this large bag of kitty litter at Sam's Club and I had this sharp pain... It didn't take. 4th IUI was the charm and I sat very quietly on the couch, no trips to Sam's club for me. When I arrived home from the procedure, Hugo told me I had two babies in my tummy and 6 weeks later Dr Chung confirmed that he was correct.

Don't be down on yourself. Miracles are out there everyday. You just need to hand in your order form, be detailed. Then try your best at being positive. Being happy. I promise that good things will come to you.

So, does this mean that we are going to be the best of blog friends now?!
