Follow Up: Hope and Fear

Posted by Anonymous. Follow up to 'Hope and Fear' (originally posted Nov. 23, 2006).

Back in November, I contributed my story on having a miscarriage and subsequent surgery to remove an ovarian tumor. At the time, I wondered if that pregnancy was my only chance at having a family.

I just wanted to say... I'm pregnant! Almost three months now. The Basement's readers' comments helped me a lot - they were supportive and kind. Many people told me to have hope, that it would happen for me, and I fiercely held onto that.

As you can imagine, I'm very excited and wanted to again say thanks to you and your readers.

Ed. note: Thank YOU, Hopeful Anonymous, for sharing your wonderful news with us!!!

(And, to any other former posters out there, if you'd like to share updates to your stories, we'd LOVE to hear them.)

(Hint, hint.)

Congratulations! It is so wonderful! I have a little boy, but have also had three misscariages, two happened after I had my son. I want another child. Your good news gives me hope, maybe next time

I have been through a miscarriage too, and it is terrible. Having kids really makes it easier to deal with.
