We decided in July to try adding to our family again and were successful (so far). I'm currently 16 weeks pregnant, due right after Keira's birthday at the end of March and anxiously awaiting the anatomy scan which is scheduled for 2 weeks from tomorrow. I'm so hoping this is the last pregnancy we have to go through to bring home our second take-home baby (and second rainbow baby!). Because we didn't do a fun announcement with Tyler or Keira, and never got to announce the last one except to family at Christmas, I decided that I wanted to make the last one count! If something happens at this point, I know it will be a much bigger deal to me than the miscarriage (at 9 weeks) was so I wanted some extra thoughts and prayers before the anatomy scan and decided to share on FB today. The pictures on the side are what I did to announce (I used the very top one). To be honest, it's given me butterflies to know that "everyone" knows now. It's like I have this pressure to keep the baby healthy now, which is so stupid. I've done and will continue to do everything I possibly can to keep the baby healthy (of course) but I know that that isn't always enough. It wasn't for Tyler and it wasn't for the baby I miscarried.
So thoughts and prayers are much appreciated.
I'm blogging in hopes of reaching out to other parents who have to face the most heartbreaking experience in life.
