I’m a 33 year old Scorpio who wishes she was a Virgo. I would gladly trade the jealousy and the crazy for the organization skills.

I’m married with one cat and one dog.  They are mortal enemies.  I’m still trying to find a way for them to peacefully coexist.

I’ve been trying to have a baby for about 5 years now.  I was pregnant with a baby boy for almost 22 weeks but lost him because I developed severe preeclampsia. I’m trying to figure out a way to work through that loss and hope to eventually bring a baby home, most likely through adoption.

I’m a reality tv addict who also loves to read.

I wish I could be a more mellow Martha Stewart.  I’d loke to do all the baking and cooking with ease but I don’t want the uptight ‘tude.

I’m one of those stereotypical girls who are obsessed with bags and shoes. Mainly because a bag or shoe will almost always fit no matter how much weight you’ve gained.

I still believe in wishing on the clock when it hits 11:11 and I make serious wishes when I blow out the candles on my birthday cake. Even though they never come true.

    HI there. I just wanted to give you a big hug and tell you how sorry I am for your loss. 😦 I had HELLP Syndrome with my kids and well I was lucky, but I know I could have very well have been in the same boat as you. My friend has sever pre-e as well and she’s had a couple losses. My heart is breaking… I’m happy to hear you are OK and alive today. My thoughts & prayers are with you. – Aimee

    I could say a million times how sorry I am but it wouldnt mend your pain. Life simply is unfair. We dont have the answers why life is unfair ! It just is and it sucks balls!
    But I do wanna share with you. I am too a survivor of Pre-Eclampsia. My dd2 was born at 36 weeks. My BP was 230/120. Protein through the roof. It was like I was in a fuzzy daze. Nothing seemed real. I almost died from blood loss but after surviving TTC, do you think I cared? Nope all I wanted to see was my child. Nothing else mattered. But it did. I matter to alot of people and so do you. Your husband, friends and family will be lost without you..
    You will know when the time is right to put on your big brave TTC shoes again. One day you might feel your ready..No one wants to wear them but when I say Im a survivor of Pre-Eclampsia I mean it.
    I found out I was having a surprise baby when my daughter was 8months old. I was going to terminate and even though it took 5 yrs to concieve my dd, I didnt want to go through that fuzzy nightmare of machines, drugs and pre-eclampsia. My doctor said to be wow whoops and congratulations. I was dumb founded. He told me yes I have a greater risk of it happening again but its not always the case. He said he will monitor me weekly and he gave me a balanced diet with lots of calcium enriched foods. Calcium tablets and aldomet BP low dosage to trick my body if it had any ideas. I breezed through it with no complications, no eclampsia.
    Why uncomplicated?
    Thats life biggest mystery… We are dealt a few crap cards in life but we have to be brave and remember not all cards in life are that bad! We live , we grow and become a better person having had a few bad cards.
    Be brave, be strong xxx

    I have just found your blog and although our situations are different, our pain is very similar. About a week and a half ago, I found out I miscarried for the second time. The way you describe your day, your feelings and how you feel no one knows what you are going through is very similar to how I feel. I hope, that with time, you pain subsides and you and your husband are able to get devise a plan on how to proceed. I always ask myself why us? Why would I even get pregnant to only loose the baby for a second time? It doesn’t make sense. The only thing I can hold on to is that there maybe something good coming down the path. I hope that it is the same for you. There can only be so much hurt for one family – lets hope your hurting is over soon and that only rejoicing in your future.
