I started this blog as an outlet to discuss our recurrent pregnancy loss experiences. During our fourth loss, I was looking for a new way to cope. Something that would help me through a really hard time. And, I thought, hey, maybe I can help someone else going through this since only 1% of couples will experience recurrent pregnancy loss (defined as 3 consecutive miscarriages). So, by putting my story out there, maybe another person in that 1% will feel a little less alone.
However, after writing for about a month, I’ve decided that I don’t want to focus on just one element of my life. Yes, it is an important element, it’s currently on my mind a lot, but it is not the sole focus on my life. This experience and whatever our version of family becomes during the next few years, will most definitely influence my life, but I refuse to let recurrent pregnancy loss define my entire life.
And, I have so much more to say on a whole lot more topics.
So, what am I going to write about? In addition to our recurrent pregnancy loss journey, I suspect I might write about things like the sudden death of my mom and sister when I was a 14 years old, our dog (yes, I am a crazy dog lady), our insane extended family, my amazing husband (I may be biased, but I think he’s pretty great), my career, an interesting book I read, our travels, or my desire to do everything perfectly all the time (yes, on some level, I realize this is impossible, but I try anyways and I’ve been rather successful at it for a really long time).
I figure the options are limitless, so I’m not going to constrain myself to one topic.
Please feel free to follow along through this window into my life.
