I had my follow-up appointment for my D&C yesterday. The midwife told us she talked to the doctor who did my D&C and they found that I did not have a molar pregnancy after all. She said it was just a normal first trimester miscarriage that they caught before I actually started to have the symptoms of a miscarriage. This is good news. Because it was not actually a molar pregnancy I do not have to worry about any of the health issues that go along with it. I will not have to get my blood taken every week! I will get it taken next week just to make sure my hormones are back to normal. The midwife said most likely by next week my hormones will be where they need to be. Also she said that because it was a normal miscarriage we can start trying again as soon as I have a normal cycle! Rue and I talked about it and we decided that even if I get all back to normal really soon we are going to wait until this summer to try again.
It is actually really comforting to know that I did actually get attached to a baby and not just a mass of tissue. The baby probably died VERY early on in the pregnancy. So now I know the baby went straight to heaven. This last summer we were learning about Heaven in Sunday School. We talked about whether or not a baby is actually still a baby in Heaven when it dies and then it grows up there or if when it dies it goes to Heaven and immediately is grown up and has its new body. We kind of thought that perhaps it is already grown up but of course we cannot be certain until we get there ourselves. Either way we know the baby is in Heaven. Thank you again to all of you who have been praying for us! God is good! :)
