I was so happy to receive such kind and wonderful advice after announcing my pregnancy. I waited a long time to tell my parents, family, friends, internet world, etc. but once I did the excitement poured over me like nothing I had ever experienced.
We went to find out the gender of the baby this week where we learned that our little baby's heart had stopped beating.
I tell you dear roommates, and internet world, this personal note as I try to relieve some of the sadness that has filled my body. I am fortunate to have a support network of people that have showed me such tender kindness and I feel forever grateful.
I will be taking a few weeks off the internet, and the duplex, to spend time trying to move forward and most likely doing many odd tasks, as I have found myself in complete task-mode trying to occupy my mind. I feel confident that sometime in the future I will return to feeling like myself, and that one day my home will be filled with baking bread and baby bums, but for now that will wait.
