Losing Nemo

On March 5, 2008, The King and I discovered that we were adding a new little prince or princess would be joining our family. We didn't want to tell everyone at first, and by the time April Fools Day rolled around - well, we just couldn't resist having a lot of fun. We left a lot of you completely in the dark, and completely confused, with the intention of revealing at the end of April, that yes, we were going to have a baby!

Everything in that post was true, except for the ultrasound picture. I got that one of the 'net, because at the time of the post, I wasn't in a location where I could scan in the ultrasound picture that was of our baby - "Nemo."

Well, little did we know that things would go terribly wrong.

Baby Nemo left our little family this morning at the early hour of 3 am. Our baby was exactly 10 weeks (gestational age) old. I actually thought that I had lost the baby on Friday, so I did most of my crying then. Emotionally, I'm doing OK. Physically, I've been better, but now that the bleeding seems to be more under control, I think I'll be OK sooner rather than later.

So, sorry for the joke. In the end, the joke was on us.

Love to you all...

I'm so sorry, Karen. I've been through that before and it is so hard. I do hope you're feeling better physically very soon.

And about your April Fools wonder I fell for it. I can usually spot a lie pretty easily, but since you weren't actually lying...

I'm so sorry, too. I came here to congratulate you on your fantastic score on the trivia quiz, and discovered the bad news. I hope you and the King are doing okay... trials sometimes work to our benefit over the long run, but knowing this doesn't make the pain go away any faster.
