Some not so great news

I went to the ER today because of some sharp stabbing pains in my right side.

My beta level was only 23 today, half of what it was on Wednesday.  The doctors call it spontaneous abortion, basically a miscarriage. They did a thorough ultrasound to make sure the baby is not in my tube.  They did not see anything in my tubes or in my uterus.  It is too soon to see anything really other than a bulge if it was in my tube.  No bulges in tubes here!  I am not bleeding or spotting so I have to go to an OBGYN on Monday to see what we need to do next.

I am trying to stay positive about this all.  I am trying to see the good in a bad situation.

First off, we know we CAN get pregnant now.

Second, most miscarriages occur because there is a chromosomal abnormality in the baby and it is the body's way of taking care it naturally.

Third, there is a reason.  I don't know WHAT that reason is for this to happen, but I know there is one.  I will find out in time.

I don't want to have anyone feel sorry for me.  I don't feel sorry for myself, no reason for you all to.

We have decided that since the kids do not know about the pregnancy, there is no reason for them to know about the loss.  No need to worry them for nothing.

I will update with any news.


  1. The reason will become evident as soon as you do get your little miracle, the reason this one didn't happen, is because God is still working on the plans for that perfect baby!! :D It'll happen exactly when it is suppose to happen. Just like Robin happened for us, exactly when she was suppose to! :D

  2. I'm glad you're doing ok with it. Sorry, I've been M.I.A. with all the moving around here! You're still in my prayers Jen!
