Okay, so not many know or knew but I was pregnant, well I am supposed to be 11 weeks and 5 days along today. We starting on Friday night I started spotting, then gradually got worse. Went to the ER on Sunday night because I just HAD to know. Well the Dr couldn't find a heartbeat and she said the baby isn't the size it should be so then she scheduled me for Monday with my OB Dr.
Well he told me that the fetus had died in utero and pretty much hasn't been growing or active since most likely 8 weeks along.
He scheduled me today for surgery, just a D&C so I wouldn't get an infection. I have been heart broken all weekend knowing the outcome wouldn't be good and it has been very emotional for me because my husband and I have tried for 1 1/2 yrs to get pregnant with our 2nd child and then this happens. Well, you can bet once I am better we will be trying again for sure. WELL that was the bad news.
The good news is that well, when I got out of recovery, my husband surprised me with a new horse!! He knew I was looking at this filly for a while (before we knew all this going on), he never really paid much attention to her, but I guess when I was in surgery, he left the hospital, went to the woman's house and bought the filly for me and had her home in our front yard (to make sure I saw her, lol) so when he brought me home, you can be sure I was in tears!! My husband is the sweetest man EVER!!!
I mean, it won't undue what happened, but I know he was just trying to cheer me up a bit and give me hope. Okay so more about the filly.
Her registered name is Skootin Poka Dox and she is APHA (Perlino) All Breed Pedigree Query
I LOVE her, I never thought I would like Perlino's but she is GORGEOUS!!! Her mane goes past her neck and she reminds me of this mystical unicorn. They dind't have a barn name for her so I have to think of some names. She was 2 in May of this year. She is very very mellow and is NOT dominant around my gelding at all which is AWESOME because he loves other horses and I can't stand bossy horses, haha.
Okay so I will attach some photos of her from what they gave me, but I will try and take better pictures tomorrow of her and of course so you can see them bigger. The last picture I am attaching is of her sire. Apparently she is very nicely cow bred and her sire is a straight up cutting horse which is nice. I am just soo excited to start working with her on her ground work, which by the way she is great at lunging and the saddle. Once I am not cramping or bleeding anymore, I will get out there and start working with both my horses.
Sorry for the long story but it was just special to me how she came into our family and I just had to share.
