Positive News

First of all, I'm sorry I've been MIA for the past few weeks.  The reason is because I've been hesitant to actually write this down anywhere.  I've only said it out loud a couple times.  But they say a picture is worth a thousand words so here goes . . .

I'm pregnant!

I'm so very happy we have a second chance at a miracle, and I'm really trying to think positive thoughts.  But if I'm being honest, the truth is I'm also incredibly scared.  I'm definitely more nervous this time around than I was last time because I know how seemingly harmless statistics can turn against you in the blink of an eye.  But when it comes down to it, my desire to create a family with my loving husband exceeds the fear I feel of failing again.  So, like the adorable Natalie who was scared to start kindergarten but proclaimed nonetheless: "I'll be bwave."  I will be brave.  It's as simple as that.

To My Fellow Miscarriage/Loss Readers:  I know you have suffered and faced your own pregnancy losses, and I hope this news doesn't hurt you in any way.  Please know that I am so grateful for all your support thus far, and am hoping with all I have that each and every one of you gets your own happy news and healthy baby to take home very soon!


  1. CONGRATULATIONS!!!! I am so happy for you and your husband! I actually wondered if you might be pregnant since you hadn't posted anything for awesome! I will keep you in my prayers for a healthy pregnancy, and I hope you will continue to blog about your journey as your pregnancy progresses. I'm so glad that you have decided to be brave and positive, even though I'm sure it's a daily challenge. Your post is extremely encouraging because it gives me hope for my own future, so thanks so much! Again, CONGRATS!!

    P.S. - I love that John Wayne quote, so I may have to steal that from you, lol!

    1. Hi Allie, thank you so very much for the note! You figured me out... I was totally avoiding posting on the blog because I wasn't ready to share the news yet and didn't know what else to talk about, since my mind has been racing around this bit of news for the past several weeks. I've been a bit lazy on the blog lately -- haven't been feeling all that great -- but I do plan to keep posting. Thank you so much for the support and encouragement, it really means a lot to me! I am certainly sending POSITIVE (pun intended!) vibes your way for your future! Take care for now and please keep in touch!

    2. OMG! I have the biggest smile on my face right now!!! I am so excited for you. You so deserve the happiness that you feel. How in the world did I miss this post? Congratulations from the bottom of my heart. Great big hugs.


  2. OH YAY!!! I am crying right now I'm so excited for you. I don't even know you, but I feel so much joy in my heart that you are carrying your miracle baby. Enjoy every minute of it (even though it's hard to not be scared) and know that Rainbow babies are some of the strongest little ones out there. Congratulations, Momma :-)

  3. Thank you so much for all the internet hugs and positive wishes!! You all are seriously THE BEST!!! :)
