Overjoyed

Part of me does not want to share this whole truth, just the happy part, but the other side of me thinks it is important to share.  A little freeing too. The part that doesn’t want to share is completely fear driven.  fear of someone judging me, someone saying something hurtful or insensitive, but I try to not let fear have hold over me.  The other side hopes this story may help someone, offer someone somewhere hope.  Even if you haven’t been affected by this – when I was, it was incredibly painful to feel like I was mostly alone in this.  Like something was wrong with me, because it didn’t seem like it happened to anyone else… because rarely do you hear anyone talk about it. 
In March, I found out I was pregnant.  It was a total and complete shock.  Certainly not in my plan at that point.  But overnight that complete disbelief disappeared – I felt insanely blessed. happy.  at peace with this.  I was ecstatic.  so was my JB. ha. that’s putting it lightly. A little over a week later I found out I had miscarried.  My doctor called it a chemical pregnancy.  The hormones produced the positive, but nothing else stuck.  She said many people have them, not ever knowing they were pregnant.  That it wasn’t my fault.  Still, I can’t remember a time I cried so much. I couldn’t climb out of that for a while.  I felt pretty silly for feeling so sad – when people have them later, and when it is much more tragic of a loss.  Still, a loss is a loss.  And it has to be grieved.  I think this is when I felt curled up with God.  like he was really holding my hand.  hard times are good for drawing us closer to what matters, and pulling us away from what simply does not.  
due to current commitments to clients I either had to get pregnant like yesterday, or in a year.  That timeline was a frustrating one as I figured I’d have to wait a year.  But following my miscarriage,  I wasn’t thinking straight.  I remember realizing I needed to get an appointment for some form of birth control … and that’s when it dawned on me that I still hadn’t had my period since our loss.  I took a test.  and HO-LY smokes.  that line was dark as night.  pregnant. I ran upstairs and woke JB up to tell him!  JB and I were both pretty cautious about getting excited… I kept quiet and for a long while it was just us knowing.  I prayed and hoped.  I told that baby to stay put.  During my 8 week ultrasound, I heard a a healthy heartbeat, and saw a jumping baby.  I couldn’t speak, I was totally choked up, I just cried.  thankfulness flooded my heart.  how do i get to do this?  This past week we went to see our 12/13 week ultrasound… and there it was.  Another strong heartbeat -159!  i could count the babies 10 fingers.  Baby stretched out, put hand above the head.  Just relaxing, like on the beach in positano.  I think she/he already has JB’s laid back personality.  
I’m overjoyed. grateful beyond measure? yes, that too.  
All of the un-pleasantries of pregnancy don’t really matter like I thought they would.  I’d already do anything for this little human i’m cooking.  your dad would too – including late night runs for ice cream already.  
{I’ll have many more photo shoots to share my growing belly… and though this one is a bit of a silhouette-fail… you get to see a bump.  around 11 weeks in this picture}

    Oh congratulations! How very exciting!

    One of my friends recently suffered an early miscarriage as well and she is having a terrible time coming out of it. I think she is terrified of getting pregnant again just out of fear of loss. I definitely don't think you are alone in grieving this kind of loss. I'm so glad for you that it was so quickly followed by such good news.

    Congrats again!

    How wonderful!!! Congratulations sweet Sarah! it's been much too long since I've been to your blog…and boy did I pick the right day! πŸ™‚ I'm so sorry you had to go through that first loss…I have had family and friends who have had miscarriages and it is absolutely heart breaking. But what a miracle you got pregnant so soon after! Hope you're feeling okay, and I'm glad your sweetheart is so thrilled with you…and that he's making ice cream runs already πŸ™‚

    I am a firm believer that we have to go through loss to experiance the great success that come after. God will never put tragedy in your life if he didn't think you couldn't handle it, and it definitley wouldn't put it in your life if he didn't have something amazing coming your way.

    What a Blessing for you and JB. πŸ™‚

    Sarah,
    I'm just now reading this, and tears filled my eyes. We too went through an early miscarriage back in October after 10 months of trying and treatments. It was so devastating, and even more so from those who felt the need to tell me insensitive comments about it. It was one of the hardest things I've ever gone through, but God is faithful, is He not? b/c 3 months later I was preggo!! And this one is a healthy boy that kicks me all day;) Such a wonderful reminder of His provision, love and blessing. It takes our breath away to see the beauty that remains out of the ashes.
    I'm so happy for you and your new little family! Can't wait to see your new bump grow and find out if you're having a boy or girl;) Ours is coming in October, so you aren't too far behind!
    Best of luck, congratulations, and thank you for putting your feelings and heart out there, I know it has probably touched many people!

We just found out that we miscarried an ectopic pregnancy on last Tuesday. I am heartbroken but finding hope in God's perfect timing for everything. God is so good. I am beyond happy for you and can't wait to virtually take this journey with you.

    I have so many things to say to this, but the first and most important being: congratulations!

    There are a few things that stick out to me about this post (other than, you know, you being with child); the first being the slight invalidation of your feelings because other people have experienced a "worse" miscarriage. I hate to dwell on this, because really what I take away from this is overwhelming joy and God's eternal faithfulness, but I really wanted to tell you that you should never feel as though your pain is worth less than someone else's. You felt a loss and that is a completely valid feeling. It does not matter how far along you were compared to someone else.

    The second, and way more profoundly beautiful thing that I am taking away from this is how things happen "in His timing." I don't have much else to say on this point, because I'm pretty sure you GET all I could say about this already based on your recent experiences.

    Thank you for being brave enough to share your story.
