Today I’m over at (in)courage. Here’s an excerpt from the post:

To be honest, I wasn’t totally surprised. This pregnancy was strange, not anything like my other two. I couldn’t put my finger on it, but I knew it wasn’t…. normal.

At five weeks, my doctor said that we’ll just wait to do any bloodwork, that there’s no hurry to do anything so early. I was guessing that meant something, that she wasn’t prescribing any of the usual routines — and in this culture, people opt for vagueness over sharing bad news.

So I waited it out a few weeks. The random spotting morphed into more of a blood flow, and everything from Google and from my heart said that wasn’t right. I went to see the doctor again.

Head to (in)courage to read the rest…
