I announced my third pregnancy somewhat earlyish, on this blog, a while ago. Several days ago, I lost the pregnancy. I would like to do a more in-depth post about the miscarriage because I had not realized the many factors and decisions involved in going through that process. Someone out there might benefit from reading that story if they are going through something similar.
But for now, I’m just doing what my energy level will permit: reflecting. I’m moving past the loss, and I feel a bit silly using the word ‘loss’ because this pregnancy seemed more like a series of events than a thing to have acquired and then lost. Life just moves on and everything is ok, really, at least for me. A few days afterward, my boss emailed me to let me know I use too many commas when I write. And I was annoyed, but only in the typical annoyance way that was over the next minute. And things are fine.
