I’m anxious and emotional tonight. Tomorrow my miscarriage will be over. Finally. But it’s still sad. I don’t know what’s happened to me emotionally throughout this process, but I can’t face my emotions anymore. I don’t talk about the D&C now, when I start getting sad I look for distractions and I didn’t even want to blog about it tonight. So this will be short for sure.
However, I feel like I need to mark the pregnancy/miscarriage somehow and earlier this week I asked my ink-free Hubster if he would mind if I got another tattoo. I don’t know exactly what I want yet or if a blighted ovum is even something big enough to tattoo? But I do want to capture this life event along with our IF journey. I like the Faces of Loss heart with feet and the idea of Infertility’s Common Thread. In fact, I think I want to make a friendship bracelet with this thread while I’m laying on the couch watching the Olympics while I recover tomorrow. So I’ll have a tattoo artist help me design it, but any ideas or input you have would be appreciated. 🙂
Here’s my tattoo I told you about:
Please excuse the odd shape…I tilted my head before taking the picture. It’s actually perfectly symmetrical IRL. 😉

Now it’s time for bed. I’ll check in tomorrow and let you know how it went.
