April, that was the most perfect advice I've ever been given. I repeated that phrase to myself over and over again last night while I was in the hospital. The doctor I met with was very kind and suggested we try inducing the labor, so as not to be as invasive as a D&C. But this experience had it's own set of challenges. I was in a birthing suite, with everything prepped just like for a birth, except at the end of this there was not going to be a baby to take home. He inserted the pill, and within a few hours I had heavy cramping. A few hours after that I was in a great deal of pain and felt a lot of pressure. I went to the bathroom, and as I sat down my waters broke and the baby came out too, still connected. That part was pretty straight forward, but the placenta wouldn't come out as it had detached. So the doctor had to extract tissue. I am so grateful I was in a hospital for this, as I would have been very frightened to have encountered this at home alone. It was a very painful experience, but I did get to see my perfect tiny little baby boy. I have so much to be grateful for, and I've learned so many things through it. I know we don't always know the reasons for challenges and trials, but I know that the Lord loves us through them all, and if we let them, they can make us stronger, better people. Thank you for your concern. I found a lot of help and comfort here.
