I went into the doctors today so they could make sure that my body was taking care of everything ok. I also got a shot for pain b/c my uterus is still swollen from the pregnancy and is pressing into my lower back. I was only about four weeks along, but its amazing, even only knowing for a day that you are pregnant, how quickly you can become so attached to a growing child.
I'm on rest w/limited activity for the next couple of days so you guys may see a lot of me. The doctor said that its completely normal for young women to lose their first pregnancy very early on and happens a lot more than people think. She also said that I shouldn't have anything to worry about with concieving later on. Its just so devastating. I'm really glad that I have you guys to get this off my chest. Hubby and I are dealing with it the best way that we know how....its just so hard. I know that some of you will be able to relate to what I'm going through, whereas my friends aren't even married, let alone thinking about having children.
thanks for letting me get it off my chest a bit.
hope u feel better soon
