My husband was sitting with me the other night as I checking my pregnancy loss board and he was asked me why I don't have a picture in my signature like most of the other people do. So yesterday morning I was messing around on the message board and decided to find a recent picture of the two of us to put on there. The most recent one of the two of us is from our trip to Mexico. These pictures brought up so many memories. First of all, a few days before we left for our trip we decided that we would "let nature take its course" and essentially try to get pregnant. We ended up conceiving on that trip. As I looked at the pictures I did not recognize the girl in them. I was so happy. I had no idea the rollercoaster ride that I was about to go through over the next few months. Everybody says a miscarriage changes you. I don't think I realized how true this was until I looked at the pictures. Here are a few that struck me as the "old me".

Those are great pictures!!!

You are absolutely right about the way m/c can change a person. I don't even remember who I used to be before that. Not only did it change my body (don't think I've Ovultaed since) but all my hope is gone if I even get pregnant again. Either way: try, try, try again right? GL to you =)

I am so sorry for your loss...I also lost my first baby at 8 weeks on July 11th of this year. Each day is a struggle but I am doing my best to get through each day and I pray that each day brings some comfort for you. Like you said, we are a part of this crappy "club" and things will never be the same. If you ever need to talk, feel free to email me at you just need someone to listen :) I also have a blog in case you want to check it out,
