    I’m so sorry that you have to go through. Sending prayers.

  2. Lisa says:

    Oh, I’m so sorry.

  3. I’ve had two pregnancies not work out, both early, both equally heartbreaking. Praying that you recover emotionally and that you are blessed with a sticky bean soon.

    • Courtney K. says:

      Thank you so much, Julie! Sending prayers to you as well! I don’t think a loss like this something you ever truly get over. Thank you for letting me know that I am not alone in this journey.

  4. Sarah says:

    Praying for you. You are right about God’s timing.

  5. Mandi says:

    I can’t imagine seeing a positive and then it not happening. That would CRUSH me because of the last year and a half. I’m so sorry Courtney… as hard as it is… the “good news” (because it all still bites) is that everything is likely working… it’s good to know that you CAN get pregnant. I am sure it will happen soon for you.

    • Courtney K. says:

      Thank you, Mandi! I couldn’t imagine trying for as long as you guys have only to have it not work out. It is gut-wrenching either way, but it’s a relief to know that we have just started trying again. Know that you guys are always in my prayers. 🙂

  6. So sorry to hear your sad news, Courtney. When the timing is right, it will be right. Trust in the truth and wisdom of that and take good care of yourself. ((hugs))

    • Courtney K. says:

      Thank you, Heidi. I appreciate that so much. Taking care of myself and just continuing to try is all that we can do, right?

  7. Trooppetrie says:

    Oh man, how can I relate. Praying for you. Praying for understanding. This is so hard and I wish I had better words to help you through it

  8. Nicolasa says:

    I’ve been there. It totally sucks, breaks your heart, and leaves you wondering about what could have been. On to the next month, though! I wish you two luck!

  9. Kathryn says:

    Oh girl, I’m so sorry I really am. I have been right there with you with that awesome hope only to have them dashed by miscarrying only hours later. I’m sorry you have been carrying this burden almost alone, and glad that you feel you can share it now. It really does help to be able to talk to others about it after time has passed. Will be praying for you, and let me know if you want to talk, I have been there.

    • Courtney K. says:

      Thank you, Kathryn! Like I mentioned in the post, it’s been a quiet burden…not something that has really eaten at me and until today I hadn’t given it much more thought. I think God has brought so much other into my life the last week or so to keep me occupied and allowed me to start healing. Sending prayers to you as well. This is not an easy road, no matter how long it has been.

  10. Jessica says:

    I know you weren’t posting this for sympathy or anything like that so I sort of feel funny offering it but I can’t imagine the heartache you felt and still feel, I’m sure. Take comfort in knowing that God is in control…that’s all that got me through TTC when with my son. I know how hard it is to see negatives month after month and then to finally see a positive, I’m sure you were over-the-moon just to be severely disappointed and heartbroken later. Feel free to let me know if you ever need to talk to anyone!!!!!!!!!!

    • Courtney K. says:

      Thank you, Jessica! TTC is definitely not for the faint hearted. I think this chemical pregnancy really opened my heart and my mind to the realities of miscarriages…both early and later on in life. I’m still coming to terms with it and part of me still doesn’t really even grasp the reality that there WAS a baby and now he/she is gone. It will take time, but I am just loving the one that I have as much as I can right now! Thank you for your friendship, girl. Means the WORLD to me!
