Miscarriage + Pregnancy Tests⁣

Updated: Nov 6, 2018

I remember looking at my first pregnancy test almost two years ago and looking at a faint pink line.⁣ ⁣ Oh my gosh.⁣

Is this real?⁣ ⁣ I don't even really think it sunk in, but we were excited. ⁣ ⁣ You don't expect a miscarriage to happen to you.⁣ You hear it's 1 in 4, but you don't think you'll be apart of that club.⁣ Well.⁣ ⁣ I am.⁣ I don't wish it upon anyone, but at the same time, I'm glad it happened to me. ⁣ ⁣ Why?⁣ It gave me empathy.⁣ It taught me so much.⁣ It allowed me to grow closer to Jesus.⁣ A miscarriage shattered my heart and allowed me to love harder. ⁣ I've been able to connect and chat with so many other ladies. ⁣ ⁣ So.⁣ Here we are on our TTC journey.⁣ Last night, we went to the store to buy new tests. ⁣ I feel so badass. ⁣ Sounds silly, right?⁣ I didn't know how I would feel.⁣ I didn't know if it would make me cry or excited or neutral. ⁣ ⁣ I walked in.⁣ Grabbed them.⁣ Didn't think twice. ⁣ Just did it. ⁣ ⁣ I'm not sure how I will feel once I use them, but for now, I feel pretty freaking brave. ⁣ ⁣ It sounds silly-- maybe-- but to me-- this is 100 addressing and mentally pushing through a trauma that completely knocked me off my feet almost 2 years ago. ⁣ ⁣ Dear friends who are struggling to get pregnant, my heart is with you.

I don't know your pain, but I just know how brave you are to keep moving forward in such hardship. ⁣ ⁣ Dear friends who have had a miscarriage.

There's no protocol for this.

There's no "right" time frame.

This is your journey. I'm here for you.⁣ ⁣ Dear friends who haven't experienced a miscarriage or trouble with getting pregnant-- thank you for your support and love. I know you don't know what to say or even if you should bring it up-- know this, your friend dealing with infertility or a miscarriage is in pain and you acknowledging their pain is a beautiful thing.

Anyone else sharing their journey publicly? I’d love to connect and support you.
