Coming out from quarantine…

July 28th, 2008

Hello everyone!

Charming told me I need to rest and go to bed early tonight and I agree with him.

(It takes longer to recover from a miscarriage than I thought it would…..  And did I mention it was hugely more painful than I ever knew it was?  It was like childbirth without any medical support, help or intervention.  And right when I could have really used an epidural, the last thing on earth I wanted to do was stand up, get inside a car and drive to a hospital to get one.  Why didn’t I ever know this before?  Is it supposed to be a secret?  Or maybe it’s just different for every woman?…..  But holy smokes!  There’s gotta be a better way to educate people about these things and then help them through it…..!)

Charming also told me I shouldn’t worry about posting tonight.

And I agreed with him, but I just had to post a little something to let y’all know we’re doing very well.

And we’re totally overwhelmed with the outpouring of love, support and kindness from everyone.

You all are some amazing, thoughtful people.

And we can’t believe we’re blessed to have you as our friends.

Thank you!!!!!

Love,

Heidi

I don’t think it’s supposed to be a secret, but it’s not something people like to talk about. My first pregnancy was a miscarraige. I had no idea what to expect, and no one told me. I think we hear about the pains of childbirth because there’s something to brag about with it. I mean, you get a child too. When the pain is so connected to loss, people don’t like to talk about it. But you are right, women should be better educated about what to expect.

Bubbers sounds like he was having fun! I’m glad you have such a fun little guy to make you smile!

I hope you have been able to rest some. I know it’s sometimes hard to take it easy when there’s so much to do. Oh, and you have to be reminded that you are a great friend, that’s why everyone is so willing to help. ;) Thanks for talking and sharing with me, I’m so grateful for our friendship!

I don’t know anything about miscarriages, you posting about it helpful to let people be better informed. The worst pain ever in my life was a kidney stone, labor wasn’t even close (thank you drugs!) compared to the pain I felt with that stone. I’m in town for a few weeks visiting my family (I saw you briefly last march/april when I was at church with my parents but I didn’t get a chance to say hi) so I’ll have to keep my eye out for you or Charming! Hope you continue to get better!
