October 15th

A year ago (give or take a few days) I was at the doctor's office hearing Kalena's heartbeat for the first time. I was anxious to hear it, because 3 and 1/2 months prior I had been in that same office under different circumstances. I had gone in to have blood drawn to confirm what I had suspected. I was having a miscarriage.

Today is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day.

Although it's not something that's talked about every day, I'm sure you all know someone who has lost a pregnancy either to miscarriage or stillbirth or who has lost an infant. Keep them in your thoughts today. For all my readers who have experienced a loss like this, I will be thinking about you.
