The Verdict Is Out

Thank you all for your kind words, thoughts, and prayers. Your encouragement and support are greatly appreciated. We went for our first official prenatal appointment today when they give you all the papers about what to do if such-and-such happens, and a gift bag full of useless crap and coupons, etc. When the doctor went to listen for a heartbeat she couldn't find one. She sent us down to ultrasound where we discovered that baby A's heart has stopped beating. I am going to the hospital tomorrow morning for a D&C and hopefully will recover soon. My heart will certainly take much longer to heal than my reproductive system. Such a roller coaster ride to think- they're not fine, they are fine, one is not fine, the other is doing great, the other has died. I am exhausted. Thank goodness for anti-depressants which I am starting immediately after my surgery. Keep us in your prayers. We'll probably need them for the next little while.

Love to you all.

I am so sorry. It is a good thing you put it on your blog. It helps to have everyone know. I observed the thing that made it the hardest for Megan was people continually asking how far along she was and when was the baby due. I love you very much. I am glad you are going to be able to have anti-depressants right away. Take care of yourself, I know it's hard with all your little kids. But it is possible to just do nothing and let them do their own thing, even if they tear the house apart. Let your VT help you, or anyone that asks!!!!

I came upon your blog, and just love it! I hope you're healing. I had a "missed miscarriage" back in 1999. I'm sorry for your loss. You and your family are in my prayers.
