Well, I'm not exactly happy to report this, but we've had some time to process. A few weeks after the last post we returned to the dr. where I was given the news that we had lost the baby and that I would miscarry the following week. That all occurred about a week and a half ago. Brian and I took it hard, but we are recovering pretty well.
But from that, I learned that I have a really good support group, and Brian and I learned to rely on one another more, but we also learned that we need to do more to prepare for a child in our marriage before we try again (hopefully soon). I was actually given two copies of this book called Heaven is For Real through friends and family, and I read the book and it gave me great peace about our loss. I'm now circulating the second copy around my parents' house and trying to get Brian to read my copy.
We do plan to try again as we said, but I plan to try and work myself into better shape. I gained overall about ten pounds before and right after pregnancy and miscarriage. So I need to get back on track to reach that goal as well as work toward my previous health and fitness goals. I never stopped working with my trainer, but I did get lazy on off days and stop following my eating plan so closely. I'm going to have to watch that.
We'll see how this goes. : )
