So I have some sad news. I don't know if many people knew that we were expecting our 3rd child but we ran into some complications and we ended up losing it this weekend. Well, I don't know if we lost it this weekend but we found out that it no longer had a heartbeat this weekend. According to the medical report, it was only 6-7 weeks in size but my wife was 11weeks pregnant and they couldn't find the heartbeat using 3 different ultrasounds over 2 days. It was a sad weekend for us but we are moving forward. We are very greatful for what we have in our lives and don't take anything for granted. We have 2 happy, healthy boys whom we love so now we can devote all of our attention to them.
The sadest thing for us is not actually losing the fetus but the dreams and hope that come along with having a child. We were trying for a girl and my wife so desperately wanted one so when she finally got pregnany after about 8 months she was so happy. She even bought some baby girl clothes.
We have decided that we aren't going to try again for another child as her morning sickness during the pregnancy is absolutely terrible. On top of that I don't think we could take another miscarriage. So rather than going through what we just went through for the last 3 months, we are going to stick with what we've got and move forward.
So yeah, that's some of the bad news from this past weekend.
On the bright side, my toe is feeling run ready so I should be able to get a short run in this evening to test it out. I will definately be ready for next Sunday's HM.
Have a good day SP.
