Some of the things that I struggled with as my husband and I navigated living as newlyweds as well as grieving the loss of our children.
I was very fortunate to become a mom at a young age. Not only was I blessed with this amazing guy to build a life with but I gained the most incredible child. She was the very best part of our family.
After a loss or failed attempt to conceive finding out a friend/family member/acquaintance/co-worker/literally ANYONE is having a baby it is like a knife to the heart, at least that’s how it was for me.
A huge THANK YOU to everyone who has reached out and shared your story with me, it truly means the world to me.
I wanted to share with you all the most common emotion I have seen when it comes to miscarriage. I hope you know, you are not alone.
Having a support system was absolutely vital during the peek of my grief. Here, I will go into a few things I had during my grief that made things just a little bit more manageable.
Here, I dive into my experiences with the “firsts” since losing our kids. The first big event, first birthday, first holiday.
The story of my pregnancy with our son, James.
It’s a long and emotional read but I lay it all out there. I am sharing my incredibly personal story with you all because I believe miscarriage and loss is something that needs to be discussed more openly. 1 in 4 pregnancies end in miscarriage and yet, when we found out about the loss of our son, aside from one person, I didn’t feel like I had anybody to talk to that would truly understand.
I don’t think anybody should feel that way when grieving the loss of their child.
Here is the “Reader’s Digest” version of my story. Follow along with my journey and we will talk about the things I wish someone had told me before our losses. I’ll share my experience with pregnancy, miscarriage, and being a step-mom.
Here we will talk about the things that people don’t like to talk about; greif, mental health, therapy, and how to navigate marriage while going through it all.
