or not? We got the chance to catch a Twins game with a couple of our friends. The game itself wasn’t the best, but their new outdoor stadium rocks! I LOVE LOVE LOVE it. What a GREAT time!!

Today I got the bad news I had suspected since Monday. I had indeed miscarried. I haven't been feeling very well for a couple weeks now, but I had just assumed the hot weather was making it worse on my stomach when I gave into my dairy temptations (which I do a lot). We had a great fourth of July weekend, but I remember Brad commenting that maybe I should go see my doctor. Well, I didn't get a chance to think twice about it when I was making an appointment with my OB due to three positive pregnancy tests.
Brad and I were trying to get pregnant, but it took us two years and a miscarry for Ellaina, and we went forward with a surgery that helped me with pain and conceive Braden. Needless to say, we didn't think we were because we had just started using the ovulation monitor a little over two months ago. You would think after three pregnancies I would know my body better, but obviously not. It didn't take me long to figure out what was going on when the pain and bleeding began. I went to the doctor twice for blood work, and today it was confirmed that my count is dropping and I did indeed miscarry. Thankfully I have a very observant little girl, who keeps randomly throwing her arms around me and showering me with hugs. She doesn't know/get what is going on with Mommy, but she knows Mommy could use extra hugs. It is just one of those things kids know, and thank God for it.
