Another Angel

It has been 5 months since the loss of our last baby...5 months of healing and trying again for baby number 2. When I was late in August and took the pregnancy test, I felt a guarded excitement...or as doctor's say cautious optimism, but the test said "pregnant." Things seemed to be going ok. The doctor ordered blood work to monitor the pregnancy and found my hcg levels and my progesterone levels low. They immediately put me on the "sticky pill," or progesterone pill to help boost my level...it is not meant to stop a loss but has sometimes been known to help the embryo to survive.

It didn't work.


6 weeks 3 days...another angel goes to heaven.

Oh, Carey. I'm so so sorry. I know that there's so little other than time that will heal that hurt. But I'm thinking about you, Sweetie. And if you were closer, I'd hug your neck. Be good to yourself & hug those loved ones.
