We Decided not to

After some research and much consideration, we decided not to go ahead with inseminating this month. I have read on some web pages that if you get pregnant after a miscarriage, before you finish one full cycle, you have an increased risk of miscarrying again. Another reason was that we weren't all that organized for it and we had very limited time. As well, I am thinking of getting a tattoo to honor the baby that we lost, and although much of my research proved that you could in fact get a tattoo while pregnant, it may not be a great idea, due to the stress etc, on the body caused by the pain. (I have three tattoos already, and non of them were painful). I had better get to that tattoo though. Maybe I will go tomorrow on my day off to find out what my options are. Both Angela and I are off tomorrow. It may work out nicely..

On a sad note, My uncle John passed away last week. He was diagnosed with cancer in January and passed on June 3rd. He was such an amazing man, and I will really miss him. He definitely touched everyone he met in some way. Rest in Peace Uncle John.

My dad came from China to be with his sister during this time. I haven't yet had a chance to spend any time with him, but hoping I will soon. I am hoping that he brings my aunt with him any time we do end up getting together. I love my auntie and am sad that we don't get a chance to spend very much time with her. It is one of those things, you know? We could spend more time with family, but for some reason, we let our lives get in the way.

Should be another 4 weeks, until I can do the insemination. That is assuming that my cycles will remain the way they had been before the pregnancy. It's just so unknown at this point and that is frustrating.

Oh, so sorry to hear about your Uncle John.

Sorry about your uncle. Life is unfair sometimes.

Sorry about the wait--I know it can be so difficult when you have to wait to try again. The tattoo sounds like a great idea in the meantime.
