It has now been 8 days since we found out about our miscarriage. I am still testing positive for pregnancy and have still not passed the miscarriage. I am attending the fertility clinic tomorrow for blood tests to ensure there is no other issues underlying, however their advice at the moment is to let the miscarriage pass through naturally, which they have said can take up to 4 weeks. I feel like I’m living in a nightmare that I can’t wake up from.
On the plus side, bad news for us always means good news for visitors to our blog, and I am delighted that we have now had over 10,000 views. I never imagined when I started this blog that anyone would want to read it, never mind that many. It has been a great thing for me, and has allowed me to meet so many wonderful people who have been a power of strength to me through these difficult days. Special thanks has to go to Natalie from Infertiblog (https://infertiblog.wordpress.com/) who has been through far worse things than me, but manages to make me laugh even on my darkest days. It’s amazing how someone I’ve never met can show more care and compassion than people I’ve known for years. I guess unless you’ve lived it, you will never really understand another person’s struggles. We continue to live and learn. Also thank you to our family and those friends who just let us be; they don’t try to make it ok, we just know that they are there.
