Shattered Husband

This miscarriage seems to be hitting W hard. He had such real hope that this was it. Since we’d had the first confirmation and then the awesome second beta, he’d started planning and arranging and genuinely getting excited. Its probably the first time, aside from my first and second pregnancies when we were still naive enough to think that there weren’t any real issues. On Thursday morning, while I was nervously eating my breakfast before going in for the repeat beta, he told me I shouldn’t be nervous, that he really believed everything was going to be fine after the fabulous beta count on Tuesday. On Friday morning, while I was sitting with him, all puffy eyed and bloated from the crying, he looked at me and asked me if there was no way that the beta would go back up again and that everything would be ok? I cried so hard when I saw the hope in his eyes, the hope he is clinging to is completely crushing me. We are praying for completely different things him and I – he’s praying for a miracle, that somehow, someway my beta would have miraculously recovered when we retest on Saturday. I’m praying that the beta will continue to drop so I can get off this roller-coaster. At the end of the day, the ending is inevitable, my beta increasing will simply prolong the eventual outcome.

    When I wasn’t worrying about my own feelings with my losses, I was worrying about BikerMans because as a typical male, he rarely displayed them.

    Big hugs to both of you..

    This is the worst part of it, because, this is what happened to me too, and it makes it so much harder to deal with everything, I had to cope with my heart ache and at the same time, I was dying inside for G, just looking at him made it worse for me.

    Im thinking of you both, and feeling your pain, it brings back so many memories for me.

    Tons and tons and tons of love to you both.
