Hi fellow ICLWers!
I’m hopping on to welcome you to my blog. I took this week off to unpack and organize our new apartment, so I don’t really have the time to write something super awesome. (Actually, I could, but Hubby wouldn’t be too pleased.) When I signed up to participate this month I didn’t know we’d be closing on our condo and moving into a new place so close to this week.
A quick run down:
We lost a little girl in an early missed miscarriage the beginning of 2011. I was about 8w4d pregnant when I lost her and didn’t find out until my 12 week appointment. I had a D&C that same night. We found out she had Monosomy X.
I got pregnant with our rainbow baby, Baby G, several months later and he will be 5 months old on Monday.
I was officially diagnosed with postpartum depression at my 6 week follow up appointment after Baby G’s birth; however, I believe it really started after my miscarriage. It was just harder to diagnose because of the loss of a much wanted and much loved baby. My midwife started me on some Happy Pills which I have started weening myself off of in the hopes my hormones and emotions are back to some kind of normalcy (they never really were to begin with). I still have days that I feel like the depression is getting the best of me, but I’m hoping that I don’t have to go back on the meds.
And that’s pretty much it! Since having Baby G I don’t get to blog as often as I’d like, but I hope to write a few posts this week so you all have something fairly new to read when you come visit.
Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by!
