Well,This could be the beginning of goodbye.I started bleeding on Chrismas eve.It is getting a lot heavier and I was cramping enough yesterday to take an ibuprofin.I'm filling pads like a heavy period,with an occasional tiny clot.
I have spotted at this point my last two preganacies, and it was just the placenta kicking in.
This is a lot more.I don't think it can be good.
Everything has smelled like fish or dead fish for nearly two weeks.Now I smell like dead fish.
I'm just waiting for the labor to set in,I want to birth in the tub,like my last mc.
We've been calling her Elvie,dd2 kindof solidified it by only refering to our baby as Elvie.I think it is So appropriate and sweet!
So,I'm hangin out here in the doorway for the next few days...
I'm sad,but not torn up.I think Elvie's spirit is hanging out with me to give comfort and be sure we're all good.I'll really miss this little one.But She can hang out with Zion,(previous mc)and we'll get back together in our next life.
I'm missing both now,I cant see the keys!I'm gonna go bawl, then play with the kids and their Christmas stuff!
