Sometimes theres a rainbow after the storm…
This hasn’t been some big secret we’ve been trying to keep, but experiencing pregnancy after multiple losses can cause you to hold your breath a bit. Now that we have made it past week 16, we feel comfortable enough to spread our big news, although we do ask that you pray with us for continued health of this precious baby.
This song has been a long time coming. I actually wrote the first verse soon after our first loss as a way to change the words to the tune in my head. I thought about sharing it last October, but just couldn’t bring myself to post it. I even recorded a beautifully heartbreaking video of me singing it, but it just felt too sad to share. It all came together perfectly when we got the news that we were expecting again. Redoing the announcement without a tribute to the babies we lost just didn’t seem right, so of course we included that verse to honor those pregnancies.
What I’m doing differently…
I know you’re probably curious to know what we’re doing this time around. We do know that pieces of my MTHFR likely played a role in our miscarriages, so we are taking different measures as precautions and support. I am continuing my dōTERRA supplement routine and adding Thorne Methyl-Guard Plus for my methylated B vitamins & Folate. I am also on daily injections of Lovenox, which has definitely taken some getting used to… but totally worth it.
Although we’re still a combination of thrilled and terrified, we are trusting in God’s plan through it all and trying our best not to let the worry overwhelm. I am going to the doctor every two weeks and so far, everything looks perfect. I am excited to share more of this journey with you and appreciate your continued support and prayer.
And don’t worry… we’re not going to make you wait until April to get the answer you all want to know.
