It has been good to be back to work. I went back on Monday, and worked three days straight. On Monday I was still having lots of bleeding and lots of clots, then (thanks in part to Gavin still nursing and me drinking lots of toning herbal teas) Monday afternoon I had a bunch of cramping and passed the final piece of Tadpole's short-lived home...the bleeding almost stopped altogether after that. I felt much relieved, as I was starting to get concerned about potentially having to go back to the ER, this time for a D&C. I'm thankful that it didn't come to that. I've had to tell several people that I miscarried, and everyone has been really supportive. Almost every single woman that I've told has given me a hug and said "Oh, honey, I'm so sorry...I know how you feel! I had a miscarriage at about the same time..." It's so common. I don't think I understood exactly HOW common it was until I went through it myself. I have to say that it makes it a lot easier to have supportive women around me who have been through it themselves. It makes me feel better to hear their stories and know that I'm not alone.
Trav moved the first boxes over to the new house today! It will be a slow process of moving in, but I can't wait until we're officially IN! We have been going over there and cleaning and preparing for the move. We bring Ziggy and the boys over with us and let them run around in the yard and play in the sprinklers...all three of them LOVE it! They also love running around the house like a bunch of hooligans, bouncing on their bouncy balls and shrieking as they chase each other...and they don't have to worry about the noise disturbing the downstairs neighbor! Deklan asks every day if we are going to go to the new house. I found some free plans for a compost bin that Trav is going to build for me, so I don't have to buy more compost than the amount that I'll have to buy to start my garden. The soil we have is pretty crappy, so I know I'm going to have to buy some to prep the soil. We have a really good organic compost/seed place here in Fresno that I already have my eye on. I think it will be good for my soul to get my hands back into the earth...how I have missed gardening!
