Grief and Loss

Why my miscarriages were more painful than your labor.

Pain of loss

This year has been tough on my husband and I. We have lost two pregnancies. The first loss was at 5 weeks 6 days and the second loss was at 7 weeks 2 days.  We have been planning to have kids for quite a few years now. We both waited for the right time, the right jobs, medical, marriage, etc.  It was the perfect plan to build a family… or so we thought.
 

My First Pregnancy

Making time to grieve.

Pregnancy and infant loss is never easy. The passing often takes with it shattered hearts and dreams of a future far different than the reality. Having to go through this process while still being called on to serve others -- whether that role is bearing work responsibilities, as "mom" for other children, coping with deteriorating health of parents or in-laws, or simply juggling your relationship with your partner -- 'overwhelming' doesn't even come close.

My angel baby is going to be a big brother <3

August 17th, 2005 I gave birth to my angel, Landon. He was stillborn at 36 weeks. I miss him each and every single day. I've always said that I didn't want to have another baby. I couldn't handle another loss if something went wrong.

I am currently 14 weeks pregnant with my second baby. I am a high risk pregnancy because of Landon as well as blood clots in my first trimester.
