Thursday Open Thread

Hi all!

It’s the last day of the school year, and I’m feeling fine. DD is all signed up for various summer camps, and our big east coast vacation is nigh. Last week was tough as I had a positive pregnancy test, and started bleeding a few days after.

At 5 weeks, this was considered a chemical pregnancy. These are common. After experiencing two miscarriages since November, I was not trying to get pregnant (as a matter of fact, we were trying to avoid intercourse during my most fertile time. Family Planning FAIL!). But I did get pregnant, at least for a minute there.

This has been confusing and frustrating, to say the least. After struggling for years with unexplained infertility, I am now getting pregnant at the drop of a dime, but not carrying the pregnancies to term. WTF, amirite?

The silver lining is that it did happen sooner rather than later. Not sure what my next steps will or should be. All I can do is take some time to recover and hug my babies close. Life is good, and I haven’t lost sight of that.

How are you feeling today? What’s on your mind? Chat away!
