    Default How are you?

    I just wondered how you are all doing? I know we are all in this awful journey but i wanted to know how you were? Good or bad.

    I am having a good week, thankfully. I went back to work last week and that has helped with getting my mind focusing on other things than grief.

    Last Friday i met a few of the girls off the UK board - we went to Sarah (Uropachild) house who some of you may know from here. That was a lovely day.

    I have a friend who was due the same time as i was. I haven't seen her since i lost my baby. I have been dreading seeing her and getting quite worked up about it in my mind. I met a few friends on Sunday night for a drink and when i walked in the pub, my pregnant friend was there. I didn't know she would be there. I think it helped not knowing as i had not got all worked up. I was ok - had a few tears well up in my eyes at one point, but sat next to her and talked to her and even managed to ask her about her pregnancy. So i am pleased that "first" has passed.

    On the whole i am ok but still not right, of that makes sense?

    Hugs! So hard to be around pregnant ladies huh!

    I am doing well. But my d&c date is coming up in a little over a week, thinking there will be some emotions then.

    Not great. Between finals week, the giant sign still up on campus, and my obgyn asking if I've thought about having some eggs frozen, not great. I don't know if I want that. I lost one fallopian tube, and by my antral follicle count, I'll be infertile before 35. Considering that I need to get through medical school and preferably residency, that doesn't leave me much leeway (I'm 24).
    I also seem to be blaming myself this week. Not sure where that came from. I was on birth control when I got pregnant, the Mirena IUD. I know that the chances of getting pregnant on the Mirena are less than 1%, but about 50% of those that do get pregnant on the IUD are ectopic. Mine wasn't quite, but close enough that it put me at significant risk, along with the fact that I had basically no endometrial lining. I'm one of the women that stopped menstruating on the IUD, I haven't had a period in over 2 years. I had no idea I was pregnant, when I went into my doctor I thought I had a stomach flu I couldn't shake (I was at 6 weeks then). Pregnancy hadn't crossed my mind. Had I realized earlier and gone in and had the IUD removed, there was a chance that my body could have built up more of a lining and that I could have supported my daughter. I guess thats where the self-blame comes from.
    Okay, that was longer than I meant it to be, and really self-pitying. Sorry, I'm tired.
    I hope the D&C goes as well as it can, have ice cream and a hot water bottle ready.
