Most importantly, my gut is telling me I'm no longer pregnant. I just "knew" when I was pregnant, before I even tested. And in the same way, I now "know" I'm not. I just feel kind of... empty. It's hard to explain. I'll know for sure after an ultrasound this upcoming week, but I'm not really hoping for good news any more.
I'll update this thread after I get the "official" news, but for now I'll be taking a break from the Aug 2008 DDC. I wish you mamas all the best, and I was glad I got to know you, however brief it may have been. Who knows, maybe I'll be back in another DDC soon...

Always missing my
Mountain Biking Mama of 3 little beans, . Epumped 22mths for dd1 (2006)
Nursed my babe, dd2 (2008) until self weaned at 3yrs. We survived a major nursing strike.
Awesome for Baby #3 who turned out to be a (Aug 2013)!
I'm still bleeding pretty heavily (heavier than a period, and it's been going on for 5 days), and over the weekend I passed huge clots of blood and had incredibly painful cramps, so I'm still nervous. We're definitely not out of the woods yet... but as of yesterday, at least, I was still pregnant.
I don't dare to get my hopes up too high yet since DH and I have been through a lot the past few days and I don't think I could bear to have my hopes dashed again. So I'm taking it easy with the DDC, have put away all my pregnancy books for now, have stopped scouring the web for diapering sites, and am just going to (try to) focus on other stuff for a while.
Anyway, just wanted to say a big thanks to all of you ladies for keeping us in your thoughts... it means a lot to me. I'll keep updating this thread when I know more about what's going on.
