I wanted more than anything for this to be a happy post – unfortunately this is the hardest thing I’ve written in a long time – maybe ever. A couple of weeks ago I suffered a miscarriage and my first pregnancy ended in tears.
I’ve been sharing my journey of starting a family with PCOS on this blog and wanted to continue to do so in the hopes of making this topic less taboo and to let others know they are not alone. 10-25% of all clinically recognized pregnancies will end in miscarriage yet it is rarely talked about.
I am also hoping to find some personal healing by putting my thoughts into words in the form of a letter. I will likely elaborate more on this in future posts, but for now, here is a letter I wrote to our lost baby.
