“Get out of bed. Brush your teeth. Shower. Wash your face. Brush your hair. Eat. Drink some water.”
Several days ago I found myself at this point with grief, yet again. Getting back to the basics, constantly reminding myself that at the very least, I need to take care of my body each day.
I had been doing well considering everything we had been through. But tragedy brought me there once again.
It is with a heavy heart that we share the news that we have miscarried our second baby.
We prayed so hard for this baby, and we fell madly in love during the short period of time that we had together. We let ourselves feel hope and joy we hadn’t felt in such a long time. Now we are feeling levels of grief we hadn’t felt in such a long time.
Yes, I will admit this loss is different than what we endured with Aria, but it is painful nonetheless.
I had written a few posts during our brief time with this little babe, and I’ll be sharing them in time. There aren’t as many of us who have felt the sting of loss twice, but I feel it’s important to be a voice in this community of those who have.
In the mean time, please pray for our hearts as we glue them back together for a second time.
