Today was my follow up appointment after my D&C on Friday. All went well. Everything looks great and all the bloodwork came back normal. I had a D&C because at 12 weeks they discovered our baby had no legs and had stopped growing at the bottom of the spine. A life threatening defect known as caudal regression. My doctor said this is SO rare and usually only happens in highly diabetic women, but according to all my tests, I am NOT diabetic, in fact my doctor said you are FAR from it. So he said this was a "fluke" and he says I am healthy and strong and after 2 cycles he encourages us to try again. He wants us to wait only to see how my cycles fall because I am so irregular, I am feeling better, optimistic even. I guess one day at a time. Yesterday was awful, today is a little brighter. I can't promise tomorrow will be good, but I am feeling some hope. Thanks for listening,
