Amber's detour

Feb 17, 2011

Hello friends,

Well, I am sad to say that I miscarried last Friday. I just left the Dr's office and he told me that with my advanced age (40 next month) weight, and prediabetes that I am at a high risk for future pregnancies. I knew that but wasn't too thrilled to learn that waiting to get pregnant after surgery would require at least a 2 to 3 year wait. My increased rate of chromosome problems which would end up with miscarriage, or severely disabled child will be 1 in 20 and 1 in 50 at that time. That is pretty high so it doesn't look good. I discussed it with my husband and we have decided to pursue the weight loss surgery now while I have insurance and make my health a priority. I know this is best for me but I am sad about not being able to be pregnant again and feel the joys of morning sickness, stretch marks, birth and breastfeeding. I work with orphans in Mexico so I will always have my love to share and have three beautiful children. Maybe God will find a baby for us to adopt. An open adoption would be great. I will let you know when I have a date with the surgeon. I am expecting a call tomorrow from the scheduling department. I am not sure when I could have surgery and need to have a pre-op apt first. So depending on his schedule, maybe spring break would be great!
