Previous thoughts..4

Written 1/21/12

We've decided that we are definitely not shouting from the rooftops this time around, but having been through 2 miscarriages, we are well aware that we need support as we go thought this pregnancy. So, we've told those closest to us who have really stepped up and been there for us in the past. We also decided to keep it quiet because we don't want to get Carter's hopes up too high. He SOOOOOO wants "lotsa" brothers and sisters so we know he'll be through the roof when we tell him. We don't want to risk anyone else accidentally telling him either so, this is all pretty hush hush right now.

We decided to keep this blog to track our journey through this pregnancy just as we tracked our journey with our other 2 children. That said, I want it to be honest and reflective of what this has been like. When Peggy told me that my progesterone levels were low and had me immediately start taking supplements, we were relieved. We thought, "Finally, someone might have a reason WHY and a way to prevent further loss." We did not go home and research and question if I should take the supplement. To us, it was as if someone said that our child had a fatal illness and that by taking this pill, we MIGHT save his/her life. That was enough for us. So, it kind of killed us when I was criticized for taking the supplement.

There is a time and a place to have personal opinions. When a couple tells you that they are pregnant and are very hopeful that a supplement will prevent further pain caused by a miscarriage... well, as any mother would say "if you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all".
