I got my last set of lab results today. Even though I had the IUD removed, it's not a viable pregnancy .... levels have dropped from 45 to 22 in the past 48 hours ... so now I am just waiting for the miscarriage to begin. I have been pregnant 6 times ... and have 3 gorgeous kids ... so I know I have lots to be thankful for ... but between the crazy hormones and emotions ... and NO MEDS for a week ... I feel like a tired, depressed old woman tonight.
I have 3 cousins who are pregnant and glowing ... so yesterday was tough. No one in my family other than my parents and spouse knew about this pregnancy .. so I heard all day about tiny clothes, decorating nurseries, growing bellies, excuses to eat EVERYTHING ... and I just had to leave the room several times to pull myself together.
I'm ok though .. and it does not seem to be ectopic, so I'm grateful for that. I'm really looking forward to taking my Cymbalta in the morning ... because I'm sore all over and that has worked like a miracle drug for me recently!
Everything happens for a reason ... and even when we have no idea what that reason is ... I have confidence that things will work out.
We're going to the skating rink tonight ... going to be silly, eat pizza, and ... gasp! maybe even drink a BEER! lol.
Thanks for the support and good wishes over the past week .. it's been a rollercoaster, to be sure .. but it's time to get off that ride and get in line for another one! :)
