The due date for Failed Baby #5 is approaching, which is a reminder of two things: 1) the obvious, that I would be having a baby soon, and 2) that we have already wasted nine months since we wanted to try to have a second child.

I moved to this new duty station and found two friends quickly.  They are both pregnant now.

CVG said I am like a pregnancy good luck charm...for other people.

I have been in a holding pattern for a long time, feeling quite frustrated.  My body has still not recovered from the last pregnancy.  At first I shrugged it off, blaming the trauma that two rounds of meds plus a D&C caused.  But then weeks stretched to months and I got more irritated.  However, I still decided that playing ostrich was better than making a doctor appointment and dealing with reality.  I just kept telling myself that it couldn't be possible.  It couldn't possibly take three months to get back on track after a miscarriage.

It took 83 days.

I got pregnant with this crappy baby back in May.  I am finally finished with him.

And now hopefully we can move on to Baby #7.

(Finally, I find a computer that lets me read your posts and comment!)

I don't know if you're a hugging kind of person in real life, or a watch your favorite TV show and knit something together and not talk about it directly kind of person. But either way, I wish I could offer something besides an "I'm sorry." I can't, but I am.
