Ahhh … there was nearly no post for you all today. I write all my posts the night before they get published and let me just say, it’s been a tough old weekend! A Friday morning ultrasound revealed I had just had my fourth miscarriage in less than 18 months (yes I know … WTF). This put me in hospital Friday afternoon for a D&C and then a small complication meant I had to stay overnight. Whoah … hospital is like totally boring – totally makes you appreciate home.
Anyhoo – I am ok (trust me) but a little all over the place emotionally at the moment. Which reminds me of the adage that without rain, there are no rainbows. Hence today’s Pinterest theme. Enjoy
The last miscarriage I had was in May (the Friday before Mother’s Day ironically … how’s the timing on these last two?!). Back then it really hit home to me that here in Australia, the medical resources we have available to us are just amazing when it comes to pregnancy and the health of our babies and ourselves. We are so very lucky.
I wrote a post about it on my personal blog and at the end mention this wonderful charity that provides birthing kits to women in developing countries who are often giving birth at home in less than hygienic conditions. I am going to donate to them again now and would love if you would consider doing the same. $10 buys four birthing kits and potentially saves four lives. Which I think is wonderful.
