today was rough

before you read//
this post might only be well-received by those who have miscarried, you may read my feelings and totally not get them so i am just warning you- this is a vent & in the moment raw feelings.
I'm not catering it to make me not sound ungrateful for what I have already been blessed with in life. Which yes, i know i have a lot to be thankful for. but i am venting --

since i like to vent, i like to plan, and i like to analyze..
I have been through a dozen of different emotions, worries, and just huge anticipation for the next baby to be here for almost 3 months. It's easy to feel like you have no one to talk to when you are going through this process. Luckily for me, I have my friend kristin who also miscarried who has been there for me to talk to through all of it.
i'm positive she was heaven sent, all the way back in 1st grade.

to be honest, no one will ever get the feelings you go through of having a miscarriage,
unless you have actually experienced one.
as i am sure that relates truly to every other trial in life.

and let's be even more honest, husbands don't always really know what to say in these types of situations.

my friend kristin worded it best,
"well i think it's a whole different level when you miscarry and I don't think anyone can fully understand it until they go through it themselves because I really didn't even know what to say/think when it happened to you and then bam I was like well now I know somewhat how she feels"

so that is why i have chosen to write down my feelings publicly, on this little blog..
for that one girl who doesn't have someone to turn to, or just wants to hear someone else to relate to

i have never once in my life been "baby hungry"
it's a huge committment to just plan to have a baby..
i knew it was time, the last round and I knew I would be ready by that 9 month span.
But, not until the last two months have i been "baby hungry"
Everyone and their mom is announcing their pregnant, and you literally just wish you still had that baby. I'm not sure about everyone else who has experienced this but the wait seems like forever.
Its a long emotional wait, full of anticipation.
everything you were once planning for, gets put on hold

this month we tried, last month we kinda did too... but this month we actually did the ovulation sticks and I figured out, that day 11 seems to be a pretty consistent ovulation day for me.. last month it didn't look like we could have even conceived to do that calculation i found out this past time.
hope i didn't lose you- but i'm trying not to be too specific.

so this time around I wanted to make sure our odds were pretty good.
and that we did, we cranked up the chances for those little guys to actually do their job

i originally said,
if we didn't get pregnant.. than we obviously weren't meant to.

so the 5 day span before your missed period started coming up, anticipating it all even more.
i tested early on the last pregnancy that I ended up miscarrying,
so I thought for sure it would be able to detect early this round too

i got 2 not pregnant stick and my hopes were getting let down each time
even if I were testing way early, thats the anticipation getting the best of me.
on Day 26 of cycle i tried, and i got a pregnant.
it was seriously the best feeling in the world to see that pregnant pop up -without the not-
i ran and told lex, cried, and just hugged the crap out her waiting for ty to come home.
I have been on 28 day cycles for pretty much a year straight even through a miscarriage.

so Day 29
start my period.
i don't even know where to start on emotions,
but let's just leave it at, I have cried a lot today.
getting a false pregnancy test is a very rare thing - but yet i seemed to get one.
I didn't test twice on Day 26, because i didn't have another stick to test with

extremely annoyed, frustrated, and just sad

Talked to my nurse today, she told me to retest & i did.. this one said not pregnant - so we scheduled for an apt. tom just to go in and make sure things are looking normal on my insides.
they will do an ultrasound if my bleeding isn't too heavy. t.m.i -I have purple'ish blood- i had it last cycle as well.. hoping nothing is serious. i'm sure i will keep this link updated..

Our Miscarriage/Trying to get Pregnancy Journey // read about it here


  1. My heart hurts for you. I've never been through this and I don't know what to say to make you feel any better but just know that I'm going to pray for you. I'm going to pray for God to give you strength, guidance and understanding.

  2. Lindsey i am so sorry you are going through this, one of my best friends is going through thee exact same thing and at times i dont even know what to say, but i guess there isnt much you can say but sympathizes and pray. my heart goes out to you! praying for you and your family !

  3. I am so sorry! I am not at that stage in my life (single and 26) but I know how much I want to "plan" out my family in the future. I know this must be hard and I can't begin to say "I understand...". Good luck with moving forward and just give your husband and daughter big hugs and kisses! You are in my prayers!

  4. i know i cant say much, especially having never been in this situation, but I hope you know that even though we dont all personally relate on the exact same level, we still have you in our thoughts during this time. many hugs being sent your way
    the sweet life of a southern wife

  5. I understand your feelings. We went through a miscarriage with our first baby. It took us 7 months to get pregnant; I thought that felt like "forever". We were finally pregnant, only to miscarry 10 weeks into the pregnancy. Fortunately, we now have a baby. But, I still think about how old our first baby would have been (he/she would have been a year old this month). I also went through a huge time of grieving after having our miscarriage. My sister in law became pregnant a few weeks after we miscarried; I had a hard time being happy for her. It is really hard and no one knows until they have the same experience. I'm so sorry you are going through this.

  6. (hugs) i know how hard it can be :( hang in there. things will look up for you mama.

  7. I'm sorry. I wish there was more that I could say. I remember trying after losing Preslee, and though it only took a few months, it seemed like eternity. I know how it consumes your thoughts, and I'm just so sorry. And I'm sorry that I'm expecting when it's so tough for you right now. I remember people apologizing to me, and I was happy for them, but being on the other side is different now. I just wish there was more I could do.

    I hope your appointment goes well tomorrow, and I'm grateful that you and Kristen have each other. If you need anything let me know. Love ya.

  8. I'm sorry. I do know the feeling. I had an ectopic pregnancy in June. I almost died. I've struggled for many months. Many emotions have affected me the last several months. My due date would have been January 19th. I had horrific panic attacks. I could barely breathe. I've been trying for 7 months with no luck but I have faith that some day I'll have a child. Good luck to you xoxo

  9. this might sound weird but ever since we talked this morning on fb i thought back to your comment about the only thing that made your day and have been kicking myself for not asking to see if you were ok. i wish there was something i could do or say to make it better. i haven't been through this but i know how much i loved my little one the instant i found out i was pregnant and i couldn't imagine loosing her at any point after that. hang in there and keep us updated. xoxo

  10. So sorry you are going through this:( When I was trying to get pregnant with Jack I was almost positive I was pregnant a few times and had late periods both times too ...then I started rubbing progesterone cream on me and that was the month I got pregnant (month 10). I hadn't gotten tested to see if my levels were low but had researched a little on the internet and thought maybe that was why. Not saying that is what is wrong with you, but just a thought. I am sure they will test all of your levels at your dr. Hope you get that baby soon! I hate waiting, its sucks and I'm sure after a miscarriage its even harder:(

  11. my heart goes out to you <3

  12. I'm so sorry for your loss. I know the pain of miscarriage and it hurts. And you are so right when you say that unless you've been through it before, you just can't quite understand. This is my own post from a while ago about my miscarriages. It was therapeutic to write it down.

  13. Thank you for once again updating us in this topic. I have no words to really just tell you. But I know what your going through and I just want to say I'm sorry. It's not easy I've also thought I was pregnant and every-time it's a let down. I sometimes doubt I have a baby again, I'm blessed with my 17 month old. But then again, I hope soon I'll have a positive sign, I'd like to have another baby. So I wish you the best this appointment coming up, may God bless you and your family.

  14. I fell for you my love. I have been there, in your shoes. Cried the tears you have cried.

    I have had blessings out of my trials though and I pray that you have renewed strength.

    I know your beautiful words have helped someone. keep them coming beautiful mama.

  15. Hugs! I suffered a miscarriage before I got pregnant with Vinny and I know exactly how you feel. I've been there and had the worst of days dealing with the frustration and pain. I'm praying for you. xoxo

  16. I'm so sorry! I can agree with everything you said with how one feels! It took 7 months after my miscarriage to get pregnant And at the time I was in a ward with 24 or so youn student couples all having kids. At any given time about 8 were pregnant so lots of baby showers were thrown and I remember breaking down at one and decided I couldn't go to anymore till I was pregnant myself! It just plain sucks when you want something so bad and it doesn't come easy! Or at all for some! Hang in there

  17. Hey Lindsey,

    I'm glad I found your blog through Casey's site. I can't stop reading... You are so spot on about no one truly understanding miscarriage until they too have been through it. It's kindof like being an awesome parent- until you have kids! I've been there. We for sure lost one. And just recently before our second little one had a very faint positive. When I went into the dr though nothing. It hurts so much. No one can even tell you how much so. It's something you don't ever completely get over. And yet, what you begin to see through the pain... the ways you can reach out to others... that is a beautiful thing. Ahh So glad I found your blog :) Following ya :)

  18. Praying that everything goes well at the doctor!
