I have five children ages ranging from 4yrs-10yrs, one little one in heaven, and one currently growing in my tummy. I experienced five relatively normal pregnancies with no complications and uneventful labors before the miscarriage last year.
After finding out I was pregnant at 6 weeks, the first week was pretty uneventful. Then I realized that I was slightly unsure about what may effect the baby. Especially after I lifted a particularly heavy case of water and realized that maybe I shouldn't have done that.......about 24 hours later I saw a brownish discharge when I went to the bathroom......I am not lying when I say that I was a mess inside. All the fears, all the 'what ifs', all the 'I messed up', all the thoughts, came rushing in......and I had my daughter's birthday party to get ready for and games to over see and gifts, and guests, and all the birthday things......
There were a lot of prayers, my husband prayed over me and was wonderfully supportive. I didn't really cry, I didn't have time...... But, I was emotionally exhausted and little numb....... The party was a great success and I sat and rested as much as possible. I had my wonderful sister, Yohanna, helping out and she was the best! That night I just got in bed as early as I could and tried to not think about anything else.
The next day I felt better emotionally, but my body was achy. This brings me to the fact that this is my seventh pregnancy and my body has been through a lot. I start to feel ligament stretching and muscle aches pretty early on because I have been through this quite a few times already. So during these emotional times, my mind is analyzing everything I know that is going on in my body, while my emotional state is taking my fears and wondering what could be wrong with every single ache or twinge......(sigh)
The other thought in my mind during this process was that last year the miscarriage happened at 10 weeks.....and is most likely possible through the 12th to 14th week of the first trimester......in my mind though the next hurdle was the 10 week mark.....
