This is how I feel when I have to go to the doctor!

I saw my OB this morning to ask about the miscarriages. They are in fact called early miscarriages even though they happen so early. He said they can be common for breastfeeding mothers because the body knows where all of its energy should go. Instead of doing labwork (his only concern would be to make sure my thyroid is at a normal level) he sent me home with a prescription for vitamin D3, baby asprin (to increase blood flow to the uterus), and fish oil. I liked how he approached the issue because he said that as a woman I am meant to produce babies so he just wants me to get as healthy as possible to up the chances of my body functioning at a high, reproductive level. He also mentioned the importance of taking five minutes a day to meditate or relax. The realization that I don't get to plan everything in my life has been a tough lesson, but I finally get it. For the first time, I am at a place where I am excited to see what the future holds for me and I am willing to wait.

My parents are staying with us this week so I get to show my mom all the cool shopping in the area while my father golfs his heart out at Palo Alto courses.

Thanks to all of you who have been so supportive during all of my baby craziness. Sorry to those of you who would rather not hear about it!
