The Reality of a Miscarriage

We blogged a number of months ago about getting pregnant, and I still get a number of congratulations on that pregnancy. I think I did mention in an update that we had a miscarriage, but I think it is hidden away and few people actually get to reading it.

Sadly, the reality is that we blogged too soon. We found out at our first ultrasound that we had a miscarriage, a blighted ovum to be exact. As you can imagine, that was quite a blow to us, especially Hannah.

In a way it is a relief to know that a baby never formed, and that we didn't lose our child, but the loss of a pregnancy is still tough to swallow. In a way I'm glad we are not having a baby right now, because Zak is at a really difficult age at the moment and having a stubborn toddler and a new born to deal with would probably be overwhelming for us.

We still haven't been able to get pregnant again, since the D&C at the end of October last year, but we're praying the God knows the right time, and that we will get pregnant again soon.
