Insert awesome title here cuz I got nuthin

I have a couple things to discuss today.  Yes, finally an updated post!  Thanks for hanging in there with me all.

I survived another Mothers Day, but barely.

On the 9th I started to miscarry a baby I wasn’t even fully aware of being pregnant with.  In hindsight though, there were clues, subtle but there.  My April period was really strange but I thought nothing of it as weird periods happen sometimes and it came right on time.  I’ll spare the details but everyone who sees Bella needs to give her big hugs and love since I couldn’t get to Rob to help me she went to get him.

It sucks and I hate it and would rather hole up for a month or so but I can’t, I have a job and bills to pay and people to cook for and do laundry for.  So I’m here and physically ok, mentally is another story.

On the 11th I was a part of a Google Hangout, basically a webcast with multiple people.  We discussed baby loss, infertility and Mothers Day.  It was awesome and heartbreaking all at once.  It lasted an hour and 20 minutes and is now on Youtube if you would like to watch it at your leisure.  I would love for you all to watch it even if it takes a couple days to get through it if time is an issue.  It was a great discussion and I think it can help many people relate.

You can watch it here:

I think that is good for today.  I promise to come back soon as I have more to talk about but just not today.

  1. Hi Mandy,
    I found your blog today, through Still Standing Mag and after seeing the Google Hangout on Mother’s Day. I started at the bottom, and worked my way up through your posts and I think you’re a fantastic soul.
    We lost our baby girl at 26w gestation back in November 2012 with no known cause. We fell right away, after coming off BC, so obviously our stories are quite different, but I feel your pain. We’ve now been trying for a couple of months, and I know it’s only a couple of months, but the fear of it maybe never happening again is indented in. It worked first cycle without even trying last time, what’s been the issues for the last 3 cycles now?
    Anyways, this wasn’t meant to be a post about me, I just wanted to say hello, and that I am hearing what you say!
    I’ll be following for your next post!! :)

    You are such an amazing woman Mandy. I’m not sure I will ever understand why this has to happen to so many of us, but I admire your resiliency to keep putting one foot in front of the other. I will be thinking of you and praying for you during this difficult time and I truly hope you will have some joy to replace the hurt very soon. ((BIG HUGS))
