Today i have learned something new - Chemical Pregnancy
I have had 3 babies and 5 pregnancies - never have heard this term
I have mixed feelings about this --- this is a pregnancy that never implants --- so was it ever honestly a pregnancy?
Can we assume women have been experiencing these for many many years (since time began) but never had to grieve over the loss or disappointment because we had no clue it was even happening????
Did this term come about because the pregnancy tests became early detection and doctors had to call it something..... but has now resulted in so many now called miscarriages? before we knew this it was simply getting your period.... right?
Are you happier knowing each month that you lost a potential life.... or did it have the potential?? -- are the odds honestly like 1 in 5 fertilizations become viable? and again we just never knew.... seriously --- are we better off with this new stage of pregnancy???
i am sorry but i find this to be cruel and i don't like seeing my friends get false hope or suffer a feeling of loss because science is butting into mother natures court!!!!!
i honestly and truly ache deeply for all you women that are faced with this....
but on the up side early signs of issues can get you to a specialist to resolve what could be a honest infertility.... but again ..... what if we all typically have a few of these or more before we do get pregnant.... it WAS the norm and we had no clue..... but now... we know it as a loss and it puts into a state of depression that then does create an issue with conception....
torn --- good or bad --- Chemical Pregnancy --- would you rather just not know????
