Since this is my first post I thought I would introduce myself. I am Raegan, wife to Steven, step-mother to Hunter (5 years old),
and owner to Splenda (pure white cat) and Sweet Pea (Russian Blue cat).
My husband and I currently live in Bountiful Utah and are planning to move to Ogden in October to be closer to his son. I work in South Jordan for a health insurance company. The commute is not going to be fun this October when I have a drive of over an hour. Taking public transit is going to make it even worse, it'll take closer to two hours.
Steve and I have no children of our own, and not for a lack of trying either. I used to hear people say they "suffered" a miscarriage, but I didn't know it was literal. Steve and I found out I was pregnant the Thursday that they had the viewing for President Hinckley (Prophet of the LDS church www.lds.org). Then when I was about 11 weeks pregnant I woke up bleeding really badly so I went to the ER.
At the ER I continued to bleed and then I found out what suffered a miscarriage really means. It was one of the hardest things I have ever gone through, and I would never wish it on anyone, even my worst enemy. I felt like I had done something wrong, or that there was some problem with my body that would make having a baby almost impossible. Those two fears were put to rest pretty quickly when my OB/GYN said there was nothing wrong with my body to cause the miscarriage and then when my father-in-law gave me a blessing he said that there was nothing that I had done wrong to cause the miscarriage.
So....Steve and I are continuing to try and hopefully have baby news soon.
