My greatest fear

I have wanted to be a mom for as long as I can remember. I knew I would be good at it. My husband, M, and I waited 5 years after being married to consider having children. Although the decision was good for our relationship in many ways, I was scared that I would have trouble getting pregnant or staying pregnant. My husband would often assure me all would be OK.

On February 25, my greatest fear came true. I had a miscarriage. It was a painful experience physically and is still painful emotionally.

I hope by sharing my experience, others will learn that what they also experienced was normal.
