Sad news

For all of you who knew that I was pregnant (which I guess includes everyone who reads this blog), sadly, we lost the baby at about 10 weeks. I began to miscarry Saturday, and finished earlier today. My husband and son as well as I are dealing with it, and we have a great family and surrounding friends and family to lean on during this time, so we're all doing as well as can be expected.

Thanks to everyone who (offline or online) has already offered help, support, thoughts, prayers, kind words or just warm fuzzy vibes. We certainly appreciate it.

I might have more to say about this in the future (as I do about a great many things) but I think at this time I'll just let the reality of it sink in, and take solace in the love of my family and my privilige to love them back. Cheesy, I know, but very true, and very treasured, especially now.

I am sorry about your loss. I was 10 weeks when I lost my baby too. I was at the point where I was really excited and things seemed real. Feel free to read back through my blog at my experience.

I know everyone deals differently so it may or not be helpful. Also check out http://www.babylossdirectory.blogspot.com/, there is a list of others who also have lost a baby.

You don't know me, but I popped over here from a comment you left on Rachel's blog. I'm so sorry for your loss. I was 10 weeks when I lost my baby too. I'm now 6 weeks past my D&C. Anyhow, I just wanted to send you warm thoughts from the West Valley. Or maybe, with recent high temps I should send cool thoughts?

Thanks, Rachel and Chris, for your kind words and your sympathy. You both have my warmest (or coolest) wishes and thoughts as well.
