I started to write a post yesterday, and didn't, and it turned out to be a good decision as these things go, because things have changed.
The thing about a diagnosis like LBWC is this. You know the outcome. You just don't know when the outcome will happen.
This week, two women in the group have birthed and lost their babies. One, on Wednesday, who was in the same week of pregnancy I am in. I read her announcement as I was feeling Psalm-Angel move around inside me. The other was just today; she was further along. But the outcome was still the same.
On a different note, I want to update my earlier research into how long these pregnancies last with info from the support group (I've done my best to ensure I didn't repeat anyone whose story I have from elsewhere, but it is a possibility).
Previous info looked like this:
- 28, 29, 30, 35, 36, & 38 weeks each had 1 birth.
- 31 weeks had two births
- 34 weeks had 3 births
- 32 weeks had 4 births.
- 27 weeks: 1 birth
- 28 & 29 weeks: 1 birth
- 30, 31, 35 & 38 weeks: 2 births
- 32 weeks: 5 births
- 33 weeks: 4 births
- 34 weeks: 6 births
- 36 weeks: 3 births
Not sure how much meaning any of it has, but somehow math is comforting
