Well we found out that we were expecting a second child and were thrilled because we wanted two kids and for them to be close in age. However, God had another plan and I lost my baby at 12 weeks due to an ectopic pregnancy that came very close to killing me. Recovery has been rough but I am so very thankful to be here. I am not sure how long it will take for my wound to heal but after five weeks I am still very sore just from simply bending over.

I have been cooped up indoors for 5 weeks now and all I want to do is go out for a run. Of all the things I wish I could do, for some odd reason, hitting the gym and weightlifting is at the top of my list. Perhaps it is my minds way I telling me I have a lot of pent up emotions that I must still work through. Physically I am barely able to keep up with my 1 year old but we manage each day and I am always thankful when my husband gets off from work so I can have a break.

Being active on this forum is something that I really miss. It is my goal for 2010 to work out a plan that will allow me to get back on track in regards to not only taking care of my family but MYSELF as well.

It will be such a relief when the day the day finally comes where I am no longer suffering from post-surgery abdominal pain/discomfort.
