And the results are in folks........

Our findings represent a normal male karyotype. No numerical or structural chromosomal abnormality was found.
WTF? Why did my baby die then? When I got the call today, I immediately got nervous & thought, O.K., lay it on me. "Mrs. S. nothing was wrong with the baby, it was a perfectly normal male". Then what happened? The answer is they don't know. I know I should be glad that nothing was wrong for the sake of future pregnancies, but it would make it much easier to swallow. I got them to fax me a copy of the report to bring to the appointment with the RE on the 23rd. I am really looking forward to that meeting. I feel like then at least I will have something set for when we will begin the FET & I can have that to look forward to. It seems like such a joke right now to have to use condoms for a few months, in case we get pregnant you know...Because it is a possibility according to Dr. OB, OMG, it kills me.
Our two Best couple friends came over on Saturday night for a Birthday Party for one of the Husband's. We had an Italian theme, I made Spaghetti Bolognese, Prosciutto with melon, salad & bread. We had plenty of wine & champagne, it was really fun. Both of those couples now have kids & it's hard, because you can't be mad at them for talking about baby stuff all the time, but whenever they do, my Husband & I just sit there & look stupid. Then when they realize they are talking about baby stuff too much, it gets really awkward & everyone just stares at us. They asked to see Christian's footprints though & that was nice. It's good to know they acknowledge him & that they care.
Now for something positive, my trip to Atlanta was a total blast. We sat in the sun everyday, had cocktail hour around 3:00, went to the outlet malls, had dinner out, made tasty dinners, got foot massages, drank plenty of wine, it was so much fun! I love my Best Friend, she is the greatest, I miss her already! :(
Well, the big move is in 2 weeks, I can't believe it is coming up so fast! We are in the midst of packing & getting stuff ready, I forgot how much it sucks to move! Oh well, it will definitely be worth it in the end.

Hey - you're back! Glad to hear that you had a good time - you definitely deserved it.

I'm not sure what to say about your test results - is that good news or bad news? I guess it just leaves you with even more questions. But hopefully your RE will have some answers, and a good plan for your next cycle.

Glad you had much deserved fun!

Being around couple friends with children could be awkward. It's good that most of my friends aren't married or don't have children yet.

I think I ask myself that same thing every single day. Why did my baby die?

You don't know me but I just wanted to send my condolensces for your loss. I am so sorry this happened and I feel even worse that you have no explanation for it.

I'm glad you were able to have a good time with your friend in spite of what has been going on. I hope you continue to find peace and happiness in all you do.
