If you are reading this blog then I am sorry you had to find me. I suspect you have been through one or more miscarriages and are looking for some answers. I don’t know that I have them, but I started this blog as a way to keep track of my journey through recurrent chemical pregnancies. I have had four miscarriages before 6 weeks…all are technically termed “chemical pregnancies.” I am also very lucky to have an amazing, healthy son, E, who was born in July 2008. If it weren’t for him I would have lost my mind a long time ago.
As I have gone through this time and again I have been deeply frustrated by the lack of information around recurrent chemical pregnancies. So many people, doctors and otherwise, want to write them off, they say “oh, just try again” or “well at least you can GET pregnant.” Well yeah, but if I lose them before I even have a chance to get used to the idea of being pregnant, really what good does that do me??
Anyway, I created this blog to help me keep track of resources and information that I have found interesting. I will also post about my successes and failures. I hope that maybe this will help someone else dealing with this frustration and pain. Feel free to email me your story or questions. I am not a medical professional but I am always here to listen.
