About Me

I’m 30 years old, I recently finished a PhD, and I’m currently working in public health research. None of that matters here though, because this is a place where I will talk about the harder and more hidden part of my life, the part where I struggle through recurrent pregnancy loss. I can’t promise to be nice, rational or fair, but I will be honest, and hopefully I will find some sort of peace in the process. If you’re here because you’re also recurrently lost, welcome to the club. It’s a sucky one, but at least we’re not alone.

Read a little about me here, and find all the gory details of my story here and here.

Also, all the photos in my posts are my own (unless otherwise noted), so if you like them, let me know!

My story in numbers:

6: years married
2.5: years trying for a baby
7: positive pregnancy tests
4: times we heard a heart beat
4: times there was no longer a heartbeat
5: surgeries
2 (or more): chemical pregnancies
0: explanations

Through the fog

  1. Wow, our stories are so similar. I don’t think I posted on my blog (or did I?) – I’m in year 4 of my PhD. I am so, so sorry for what you’ve gone through. My heart was breaking as I read further along this page. Will be following you and pulling for you. Biggest of hugs. Miracles do happen.

    • Thanks, I really appreciate it. I know exactly what you mean about it being hard to continue with academic work throughout all this. I did somehow manage to finish my PhD despite everything, and I’m really glad I did, even though I sort of gave up on academia afterwards (at least the traditional version). Good luck with yours, and I’ve got all my fingers crossed for your pregnancy :).

  2. Your story sounds very similar to mine. 3 losses, two after seeing heartbeats, and no real known cause of any of them. It is just incredible to me that in this day and age they still can’t figure out why this happens to some people (over and over again). Wishing you the best of luck with everything. I’m definitely following you!
