Of course nothing about this process has been easy. Now I have more annoyances to add. Last week I started to notice some things weren't going quite right post miscarriage. I ended up passing another olive sized clot that smelled horrible. I called my OB who had me come in the next morning. First we did another ultrasound. The tech said there was some "stuff" still in my uterus, she thought it was most likely just fluid. I saw my OB then and she examined the clot and found that it was just that, a clot, no tissue. The odor was just because it had been up there so long (she referenced rotting meat, lovely thought). The she inserted the speculum and "squeezed" out a little more stuff that she said looked like decidua. If I was lucky, that would be the end of it. She gave me 7 days of antibiotic for infection. For a few days after that I bled a lot. Today it's been a little less. I'm still cramping off and on. I'm just ready for all of this to be over so I can move on. We are still waiting to hear if they got any information from testing the baby.

Today is one month away from my due date for our son. I would have had a son in one month...

Our daughter is amazing! She had an appointment with the nurse practitioner and she is very advanced in everything and is healthy, healthy, healthy! She amazes me every day. I love watching her read her books, and play pretend, and run around the house dancing and hopping and squealing. She is such a joy! She loves letters and numbers and tells us every time she sees them when we are out and about. She has been able to tell us the letter and the sound it makes for several months now, which I find astonishing! She has just recently started putting more than one word together. I just started planning her 2nd birthday party for next month. I can't believe my baby will be 2! Even with all of our heartache this past year, life is glorious! Thank goodness for our precious daughter!
