With Some Difficulty

Heather’s written about her miscarriage here. I’d say “our” but I’m not the one going through the physical part and it seems a bit of a sham to call it like that. Still, I’m very upset and it’s been a difficult week for us. I’ve tried to be positive and logical.

As a nerd note, if the above link doesn’t work or dooce is down, we’re on it. If dooce is down, it’s very likely this site will be down also, so please bear with us. We’ll be upgrading the server tonight, so things should go a little better tomorrow and hopefully we can open up comments on dooce.

Heather really wanted to share this experience, as we’ve discovered that this happens far more than is made public. Family and friends have shared their experiences and in doing so helped us understand that miscarriage is far more common than either of us realized.

I’ll leave comments open here for as long as I can, but they may be turned off immediately if the server is still getting throttled.

Thank you all so much for your kindness. It means the world.
