Hey folks, a little news on the baby situation. Since my beloved wifey said it perfectly on her blog, I will just paste that:
"I'd like to retract my most recent post... as it turns out, my baby's sweet spirit was excited to come to earth but it's little body didn't get the memo. For some reason, unknown to me, the baby didn't develop which left me with all the pregnancy symptoms but no baby. Apparently this is very common, known as Anembryonic Gestation, and occurs in around 40% of pregnancies. It usually occurs when the chromosomes don't come together properly or there aren't enough to create a healthy developing fetus. We're sad but know that everything happens for a reason and have faith that this will not hinder our progress as we continue to try to expand our little family. I'm scheduled for a second appointment with my doctor next Tuesday to check one last time and if my belly is still empty, we'll be doing a D&C to get everything out of there (sorry, TMI!) and then Chris and I will decide whether to start trying again right away or to wait a bit before we do. We're both sad (I think I'm a bit more, as I already loved my little baby more than I can express...) but we know that our Heavenly Father will help us to deal with this and move on. Thank you all for your love and support and we appreciate everything you do for us."
It was a hard thing to hear, and I especially mostly felt bad for my Cass. Its so obvious that us guys don't fully comprehend the unique bond a mother has from the very start, and I know it was hard news for her. But, we'll move on and see where fate takes us next. Kind of a whirlwind of info about all this, sorry! We shall keep you informed.
Otherwise, tomorrow is Christmas Eve! Have youselves a Merry Little Christmas!
