About the Blog:
First comes love …
The comes marriage …
… then comes multiple miscarriages?
I have been trying to conceive (or “ttc” for those of you that know the lingo) since March 2006. I had taken the pill for 10+ years so getting pregnant just meant not using birth control, right? (Universe: HA!!)
I first got pregnant in August of 2006 and had my first miscarriage at 10 weeks in October 2006. (Universe: “Two words for ya kiddo: Blighted Ovum!!”)
I got pregnant a second time in April of 2007 and had my second miscarriage at 7 weeks and change in June of 2007. (Universe: New and Improved — this time with non-viable fetal heart rate!!)
I have fancy letters after my name.
I teach at a university in the northeastern U.S.
I wanted to cry when my 19-year-old student told me she was missing class due to morning sickness, but I didn’t.
