Blood work revealed that it is either ectopic or a miscarriage. I have another appointment on Monday for more blood work to see if they can determine which one.
Emotionally, I am in survival mode trying to remain a little detached from the situation. My ectopic pregnancy 18 months ago was one of the most devastating, rollercoaster experiences of my life. We went from feeling ecstatic to distraught in a matter of weeks. Protecting us from these feelings is top priority now.
Since I have a fear of dying from a ruptured tube, I am following the doctor’s advice of no physical activity. OF COURSE, I had already registered for a 5K (Running the Hills) TODAY! Bummer!! (Really down about that) Part of my brain thinks, “Listen to the doctor. No running.” The other part thinks, “Could it get any worse?” “I was running last week before I found out and I’m still alive.” “It’s only a 5K.” The list could go on, but I’ll take it easy for now and get back to training soon. The Crescent City Classic 10K is on April 23 and I will probably run it for fun and not for time.
In an effort to keep my mind off of the race today, I will post pictures of Terri and I running in the Warrior Dash on March 5. These pictures always make me smile and lift my spirits!
