I had a draft of a blog that I had written for after I announced the pregnancy. It was just mushy mom stuff. Like how I can't wait to hold my new baby and watch him/her stretch it's tiny arms and legs out every time I pick them up. But instead of that post, this.
the little announcement that happened on this blog a mere few days ago was excruciatingly bad timing. If I would have waited four days more, I wouldn't be here UN-announcing my pregnancy.
I had a miscarriage. And it was traumatic and horrible.
So now if y'all are wondering why my tummy isn't getting bigger in the coming months, you now know why.
What a random time for me to announce I'm pregnant, 9 weeks?! Who does that. I've learned my lesson though and will be a little more hesitant to tell the world of what will hopefully one day be wonderful news again. Wonderful news that sticks and doesn't need to be taken back.
It tricky scary crazy business, the whole miscarriage thing. I would recommend it to nobody. But I'm so very grateful for the hope that so fervently remains in my heart, as well as my baby jane who can make me happy in the midst of great loss.
We will be ok.
