One of the hardest days........

As most of you know, we were so excited when we found out that we were going to have a baby! We did everything right and the time was right, so we thought.....on April 15th after a LONG day in 2 different emergency rooms, I discovered that I was having a miscarriage.  I will forever remember that day for as long as I live.  It was an emotional roller coaster as well as a bad experience with an emergency room. 

That morning when I woke up, I knew something was wrong; I called mom and woke Jon up, off to Stuttgart we go (I knew what was happening, so I thought Stuttgart would be fine)....BOY was I wrong.  Jon and I arrive at Stuttgart ER and was quickly placed in a room.  They did the usual test (pregnancy test, HCG test, and ultrasound) the mean time we SAT there knowing about nothing that was going on because the doctor didn't come give us updates.  I knew my mom had all she could stand (I was of course texting her to keep her updates) and finally came down to check on her baby (yes, I am still the baby in the family) !!  After sitting there 7 hours and yes I mean 7 hours, the doctor informed me that my levels were ok BUT it appeared that I had debris in my uterus....WHAT??? In the meantime I was thinking if I told my kids the word "debris" they would be thinking the same thing I did, that is the TRASH after a tornado....By this point we were all getting mad at the whole situation.  We left Stuttgart and made a trip to LR ER....the doctor was much more friendly but also had to inform me that I was indeed having a miscarriage.....all we could do is cry.  I kept asking WHY US??/ We had done this the right way (got married, had a job, house, etc) but quickly we realized it wasn't anything that we did WRONG, it was God's way of taking care of us and the baby.  I do have to say that it was hard and still hard, especially when some people who do not know that we lost the baby, come up to us and congratulate us....then we say "Thank You" but we lost the baby.  Of course they feel terrible, and it is hard on us but they didnt know.

I was also informed that I have A-, which means that I have to have a shot everytime I get preggo....The doctor gave me a full most of you know I do not like shots and this one hurt.  If I didn't get the shot then I would have more than likely miscarried everytime b/c of the antibodies from this miscarriage.

While trying to put that horrible day behind us, I have come to realize that I need to change OB doctors...The nurses at my doctors office (whom I called all week before that Friday) didn't seem to care about what was happening but did inform me to go to local er if I thought I was having a the search is on for a new doctor.

I would appreciate all and any comments from my followers!!!
