May 15, 2008 is a date I will always remember. Today was our due date for our first pregnancy. We learned on September 11 that we finally had a baby on the way, after two years of trying to conceive, countless tests, and tremendous heartache. I had a D&C on October 11 because I was miscarrying.
After our second miscarriage, I got a diagnosis that I have a balanced translocation of two of my chromosomes, which explains a lot. More on that another day.
Today I am sad, but I try to remain hopeful. I remind myself of the name of this blog and of the many positive things in my life. “Team Kelly” (my name for three very important women in my life – my therapist, personal trainer, and acupuncturist) is working hard with me. But I’m also letting myself continue to grieve.
