Ok, so many of you know I generally only lurk once in a while on the recurrent miscarriage support board on babycenter. Mostly because the vast majority of the women who were on the board when I first joined eons ago, in 2012(!), have gone on to have healthy babies. I pretty much lost many of my friends there. The women on there are today are supportive and great, but I. just. can't. I generally feel like I have nothing to offer them in the way of hopeful words.
Well, today I hopped on a thread, and someone posted this very short video. It's a doozy, click the link below. Seriously, WATCH IT.
Are your tears dried yet?
The backstory was given by someone on the board who actually knows her: Apparently she had just found out as well and was shocked. She went to her doctor to
find out why she was retaining fluid because she had swollen feet/ankles. After giving up on a baby for over 5 years, pregnancy was the farthest thing from her mind, and besides, she was now in her very early 40s. Oh, and the big softie in the video is a correctional officer, when he's opening the oven he is seeing her ultrasound pics.
