Thank you for all of your responses to my previous “strong” post .... know that - there is strength in being vulnerable and it takes a braveness beyond any to be open to hurt (regardless of what society tries to teach us ) 🙌💫

Healing is not linear. You will have good days, inbetween days, and bad days. That's okay. Healing takes time.

It's a new day and a new outlook.
❤️
🌈
Part of the anxiety of #ivf is the unknown.  Yesterday, my anxiety was fueled by not knowing what path we were going to take.  Now that we have made a decision, I feel much more positive and at peace with proceeding.
❤️
🌈
Pete and I have decided that it makes the most sense to gamble $4,000.  That is how much testing the five frozen foxes for genetic abnormalities will cost.  If none of those work out, we will have to do another egg retrieval cycle and pay almost $6,000 for the medications and another $4,000 for testing that batch.  But to put my body through another retrieval if it's not necessary doesn't make sense.  Granted, we might be eating those words, but we think the conservative approach is to examine what we have first.
❤️
🌈
Do we wish we could just shell out another $10,000 and just do another round and test everything together?  Absolutely.  But fiscally, the path we have chosen makes more sense to us.
❤️
🌈
I've gotten feedback about down syndrome children and what a blessing they are and I couldn't agree more.  But here's the harsh reality- most pregnancies with a down syndrome baby result in miscarriage.  And selfishly, I don't want to go through that again.  So if we have an opportunity to minimize the risk of #miscarriage, then that's what we are going to do. ❤️
🌈
Thank you for all of your words of support and encouragement.  It means so much.  Sharing is one of the hardest things I have ever done- sharing the most personal aspect of my life is incredibly daunting.  But the messages I receive with "me too" from those battling this quietly makes it worth it.  #infertility #ivfwarrior #ivfcommunity #ivfsupport

“Grief is like the ocean; it comes on waves ebbing and flowing. Sometimes the water is calm, and sometimes it is overwhelming. All we can do is learn to swim.” - Vicki Harrison 
This week has been extremely tough on my family after learning that I had a miscarriage. For the past week I have tried to navigate through feelings of sadness, grief, love, anger, too many emotions to comprehend. Miscarriages are hard emotionally AND physically, but I have found some peace and hope in the many stories of heartache, loss and recovery I’ve heard in the past couple days from close friends and family. Although it can be hard in the moment, I am reminded every day by my family that there is a light at the end of this tunnel. I am forever grateful to be a mama to my sweet Eleanor and to the baby that I will carry with me forever.

Yesterday marked a month since we lost our baby to a miscarriage at 10 weeks. 
Up until now, I felt very realistic about the situation and like the worst had past. This week was definitely the hardest since we lost our butterfly. 
Sleep fails to replenish me, the grief captures me in waves and my body is giving me a number of signals that I need to stop pushing through (headaches, poor digestion, aching joints)

Like with any stress or loss, it is important to let the feelings wash over you rather than fall like water off a ducks back. 
I’d give the same advice to my clients that I am now giving to myself - be gentle, take time, be unapologetic about it and work to heal yourself.

For any of those who are working through the grief of a miscarriage, please don’t hesitate to reach out. Support works both ways x

As it’s only natural to the season to reflect upon the things you are thankful for, I find myself thankful for something so simple yet crucially vital for me this year. 🌿

As many of you know, this past year has been probably the hardest year of my life. 💔 
So much loss, pain and struggle; physically, mentally and emotionally in every kind of way. 
3 miscarriages in 6 months and the traumas that comes with them, a split in my relationship for a time as I struggled to come to terms in every possible way with said losses, a painful yet life altering surgery along with all of the stresses of other medical issues plus the sum of all parts life throws at you. 
Needless to say, these experiences have changed me. 
Some of the change was not for the better and took hold for awhile until they were ready to let go.
But, with a massive amount of prayer and much needed time, I am happy to say I am changed into a better person for all of it, seeing my old self again inside but also a new found strength. 
Things in my life have now fallen back into place through the power of The Almighty, hard work, communication and unconditional love. 🙏🏼💞
I have many wonderful things in store for me this holiday season 👰🏻 💍🤵🏻 but I am thankful most simply for this. 
LITERALLY just being able to stand here (mostly pain free) with a smile on my face AND one in my heart, recognizing me again, looking forward to what the future has in store for me. ♥️
What defines us is how well we rise after falling. 
I fell. I rested. I healed. I STOOD.
“The pain that you've been feeling, can't compare to the joy that's coming.”
-Romans 8:18

Sometimes life is hard. We all have hard things we deal with.
😔
Social media has a way of helping us forget this sometimes. We compare our messy, crazy lives to others highlight reel. But I have found a lot of people are so good about being real, honest & sharing their version of "hard stuff" but it’s usually after the fact. No matter who you are, we ALL go through hard things & I dare to say, often.
💛
When we decided to start our family I had a miscarriage. It was heartbreaking. I couldn’t wait to be a mom. I was so bummed that our families knew we were trying & the surprised was now ruined.
😔
I wondered what God’s plan for me would be. Would I get pregnant? Would I deal with infertility? Would we adopt?
💛
It's not what we're given but how we react that makes all the difference. Changing my perspective & what I thought about, changed everything.
💛
Sharing more about this on the blog — What To Do in The Midst of Trials jennagines.com — & sending all the love my friends!

Brilliance here from @_adrianabaggio
.
Assessment is key. It’s a major focus of what we do. We often let couples “satisfy” a number (number of months #ttc or number of #miscarriages) before we check what’s wrong.
.
Use your gut. Get assessed.
.
I’ve written a free downloadable list of lab work pulled right from the book to help you get started on your journey. Click the link in my bio to download your copy. We can predict who is at risk for miscarriage by assessing you properly. This list will get you started on your journey on the right foot.

Posted @withrepost • @_adrianabaggio FERTILITY ASSESSMENT
.
I’ve met one too many people in the past 7 months of my internship who should have been assessed earlier. When someone tells me that they have been trying to conceive unsuccessfully for over 2 years without a work-up my heart drops for them. I wish someone would have told them sooner.
.
Knowledge is power and I’d like to prevent others from waiting longer than necessary to get help. So here are the general guidelines provided by the Government of Canada for when you should be assessed:
.
1️⃣35 years of age or younger and have not become pregnant after one year of having regular unprotected sexual intercourse.
2️⃣Older than 35 years of age and have not become pregnant after 6 months of having regular unprotected sexual intercourse.
.
As with anything in medicine (and life), there are some exceptions as to when you should seek help sooner. Here are just a few of them:
~ Other diagnoses affecting your period (PCOS, endometriosis, irregular/no periods)
~ More than one miscarriage
~ Older than 40 years of age
~ History of cancer or sexually transmitted infections
~ Family history of early menopause (menopause before the age of 40)
.
When you are ready to start trying to conceive talk to your healthcare provider about your specific health concerns and how they will affect your chances of getting pregnant.

I am currently reading Life's Amazing Secrets by Gaur Gopaldas and these lines really stuck a chord. He says: "Behind the smiles everyone is going through personal struggles we know nothing about." How true is that! I seem to be smiling direct dil se in this picture but perhaps it was the most difficult phase I was going through. I was totally bloated because of stimulants and egg retrieval. This picture was taken on 7th July 2017 and I was due for embryo transfer exact 10 days later. There was tremendous pressure of IVF being successful (we all know that the success rate of IVF is very low), despair from pregnancy losses in the past, unexplainable craving and desire to be a mother someday.

All kind of emotions, mostly negative were daunting me really but I guess it was the best to just smile and stay calm. By God's grace, our first attempt at IVF was successful and now our rainbow baby Aarnav has filled our lives with joy.

All's well that ends well, isn't it? 😊

Can't wait to see the rest of our family pictures. We decided to recreate Lelands maternity pictures to celebrate 6 months of his life 🌈 we'll do it again at 1 year and I'll get to wear the dress again that I unfortunately couldn't wear cause it was 30 degrees 😅

Three years ago Brittany walked through one of the hardest things in her life, miscarriage. After a healthy first child Brittany miscarried her second baby. Needless to say she was heartbroken. As her sister I wanted to help her walk through this season but what is the “right” way to help someone go through this kind of loss? •

In this episode we hear Brittany’s story and talk about how I learned to love support her the way SHE needed it! •

Thanksgiving is the beginning of the holiday season. It is the beginning of a season that for a bereaved parent can bring added heartbreak, sadness, anger. Those three emotions plus a plethora of magnified emotions and stresses. It doesn't make a difference if the death of their baby was recent, a year ago, five years ago or twenty. The holidays have a painful way of amplifying what was lost.

We humbly ask you to hold all of our 840+ families who we have served over the past 14 years in your prayers. Prayers for comfort, peace, love, understanding, support, encouragement and whatever else you feel drawn to pray on their behalf.

Because I'm so thankful for our double rainbow baby and it's Thanksgiving week, which can be hard for anyone experiencing miscarriage or infertility... Evy was our third pregnancy.  The heartbreak, anguish and unknown that came with multiple miscarriages was paralyzing. I prayed and dreaded anytime we went to the doctor... with every pregnancy. The holidays were especially tough. To anyone experiencing infertility or pregnancy loss, you are not alone.  Your loss is real, the emotions are real, and the pain is real. I'm here if you need someone in your corner. You are strong enough for this. #miscarriage #pregnancyandinfantlossawareness

One whole week since the funeral of our perfect twins, Max Arthur and Nel Martha. My heart is still breaking 💔 How can you go from having everything you’ve ever dreamed of and feeling the happiest you’ve ever been in your entire life to such extreme sadness and pain? What I would give to spend those 22 hours with our beautiful boy and those seven days with our gorgeous girl all over again. 💙💖

Five years ago today at 12:26 am, after 18 hours of natural labor and 6 hours and 26 mins of help from an epidural, my miracle boy was born. ⠀
⠀
The struggle to get him to me was a long one. My heart endured more than I would ever want anyone to feel. It was ten long years of empty arms, disappointments, broken wishes, and unfulfilled dreams. It was ten long years of doctors, supplements, BFN tests, BFP tests that turned to BFN, flushing 9 babies down the toilet, blood draws, needles, bruises, hormones, and keeping myself together because it’s what I’m supposed to do. I am strong but in reality I am so very weak. ⠀
⠀
He was the one carrying me and pushing me on when I could no longer get up. He was the one when every time I felt defeat and wanted to give up; I couldn’t shake the feeling to not stop. I never felt peace in being done and he is the reason. ⠀
⠀
We did not find out the gender. We had waited 10 years for this experience and what was 9 more months. Honestly though;  I think the true reason we waited was because knowing the gender and giving the baby a name made it real. We were both so protective of our hearts. I did however feel very strongly he was a boy. ⠀
⠀
The words, “He is a boy!” from my husbands mouth the moment he was born will be forever imprinted in my mind. Happiest day of my life!
⠀
Today, five years ago, my sweet boy made me a Mom! ⠀
⠀
Oh how grateful I am for this sweet boy. He was worth everything I endured. ⠀
⠀
EVERYTHING!!!!!⠀
⠀
I know this picture and post is a sensitive one. I pray it brings hope. I pray it brings strength. ⠀
⠀
Never give up on your dream if you feel you are to keep chasing it. He is proof of that. 🌻🌻⠀

Sitting at my fertility clinic getting ready to find out if we can transfer before the end of the year.  Part of me is feeling like aughhh should we do another transfer at the end of the year again?. The past 2 Christmas’ have been clouded by miscarriage.  I’m also regretting my bad eating choices over the past 3 weeks. Work has been insane and I have not been keto or even low carb friendly.  Carb face comes back so quick.  So that needs to change quick fast.  But at the same time I’m excited. We’ve never done a FET and never transferred genetically tests embryos.  But mostly feeling grateful. Grateful we have these options and the support from so many people.  Thank you! .

This morning I woke up feeling more positive than I had for a while. 
I really wanted to message an old friend and explain that I was sorry for drifting apart but at the same time felt too much has happened, that I shouldn't feel sorry and accept all the blame.

I then saw some posts which for me summed things up perfectly. I am so lucky that my family aren't just family they are friends and my small group of girls always have my back.

Not one of them has made me feel bad for times I've cried or shut them out, they have all checked in on me when things have been crappy.

So to the friends that drifted, I wish you happiness in your future. I am thankful for our good times and memories.

I am done feeling guilty and sorry for things that weren't just down to me.

We've been asked a few times who the plush fellow is in the pictures I've been posting, so here's his own post explaining. 😁 That's Elliott. He is the stuffed elephant I sewed from the one thing we bought for Asher before we lost him. What was once a soft, minky blanket covered in woodland animals is now a stuffed animal that travels with us, watches TV with us, can often be found in somebody's bed on any given night, and can be seen in every organized family photo we take. He's a pretty special guy.

I HAVE a LOOONG WAY TO GO to hit my GOAL of 150lbs 
But guess what its not going to come over night I have had 7 pregnancy in 11 years miscarried twins (boy and girl) and a little boy. 
I have  five healthy little boys with that brought 
2 natural deliveries,1 csection, and 2 vbacs. 
My body has been the Hell and back bring my babies to this world and with depression and postpartum I kinda gave up on things for me and focused on ways to keep me busy with the kids after having the miscarriages and one little guy born at 30 weeks and almost losing him. I became one of the moms that was scared to let the kids go let them be kids let them out of my sighting because what if something happened and I wasnt there. Well guess what that plays hell on your body not sleeping worry and just lost and not sure why .. But something clicked not sure what but I figured why not give Thrive a try well 19 days later here I am working on me mental  and in all other ways that I can to better me for ME and for my family but truth bomb I am a good mom was a good mom but I will be a better mom once I am happy and feeling better about me .. For all of you moms dads (as there is males out there to that go through the worry and heart that we do they hide it) I am always here for a ear a message or hopefuly give you hope and inspiration that you can do it too.. happy hump day and hope the week is awesome.. .

Novembers are hard in our home. Four years (and one day) ago, we rushed to the hospital to find out that we had lost our twin pregnancy at 11 weeks.  We didn't celebrate Thanksgiving for the following two years. The sting of the loss is definitely still there but we have managed to learn how to let ourselves move on (though you never completely move on from loss). We chose to celebrate their life on their due date in June, rather than mourn in November. However, I still struggle to let this day pass without having them on my mind. It's a really complicated feeling. .

It still doesn’t register sometimes that I’ve been pregnant 3 times this year! That’s completely not natural! 3 babies, 3 separate due dates, with the first one being due in only two months time. The due dates haven’t stuck in my mind only the months, but I’m wondering how I will feel when each month comes along. I want next year to be a positive one, and I don’t want to get hung up on feeling sad for the whole year about what might have been and want to feel excited about what will be. I will be a mummy to two healthy living children! I will have a baby bump and I will be strong and brave and face whatever life is going to throw at me, which I really hope won’t be any more losses! Onwards and upwards!

Friends, I am excited to have Abbey, from @gentle_leading has a guest writer over on the blog this morning. This month is a tender month for her as it was her sweet baby's due date Nov. 21st of last year. In this post she shares her heart on how difficult the holiday season can be for the mama with empty arms and in doing so, points us to the richness and promises of Jesus Christ as the coming Messiah! She challenges us to look beyond our circumstances and look to the hope we have in Jesus! Here is an excerpt: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
"There’s no chance of a holiday due date or miscarriage marker sneaking by. The festivities and traditions create opportunity after opportunity to be reminded of who is missing, what plans have not come to pass, and the way that things might have looked different if your baby’s life had continued. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Those of us who have lost little ones in the womb face great temptation to focus on our lack as we are told to “give thanks” or to wallow in sadness as we are commanded to “rejoice.” Those bossy holiday phrases cause us to feel (and make the brief lives of our babies seem) unknown, overlooked, forgotten, and insignificant. It may feel as if the stinging imperatives to give thanks and rejoice are intended for everyone except for you, and that may be true of the way that store shelves market them, but it is not true of their presentation in the Word of God. This season as you grieve, rather than allowing them to exacerbate your pain, I encourage you to let the shouts of the season remind you of the more beautiful invitations extended to the grieving and heavy laden soul in the Bible. Gratitude and grief are not at odds with each other. Sorrow and rejoicing are not enemies."

H O L I D A Y S | they are challenging for those who have lost and I don’t mean only loss of  a loved one but loss of self, loss of relationships and loss of connection. 
Holidays can bring grief and the key is awareness. 
Awareness from ALL OF US and not just the ones grieving. Please be mindful. Please be aware and if you don’t know what to say - ask if you can help. Tell them you are thinking of them. Tell them that you wished that person was here too. Listen and DONOT fix or give suggestions. GRIEF never goes away !!! Don’t be stuck in the uncomfortableness of it and please push through. Hold each other. Hold space for each other and just know that holidays are hard and not everyone is grateful and that you can hold JOY and GRIEF at the table. 
Communication is important and ask for what you need ✨✨thank you j xo | another beautiful image from @tinamariaelena - please check her out ✨✨✨

“For the ministry of this service is not only supplying the needs of the saints but is also overflowing in many thanksgivings to God. By their approval of this service, they will glorify God because of your submission that comes from your confession of the gospel of Christ, and the generosity of your contribution for them and for all others, while they long for you and pray for you, because of the surpassing grace of God upon you. Thanks be to God for his inexpressible gift!”
‭‭2 Corinthians‬ ‭9:12-15‬ ‭ESV‬‬

It is a blessing and an honor to give women a place where they can share their story. We are grateful for the vulnerability of the women who share their deepest pain and glorify God in the same breath. We are grateful for the testimony of those who can speak life into those who may not know that grief and joy can go hand in hand. We are grateful for those who see what happens in this ministry and praise God for what he is doing in the lives of these women and their families. We are grateful for the women who show up, even when they’re afraid, overwhelmed, or unsure of what they’ll encounter at Gathering Hope. We are grateful for God allowing us to step into these lives, if only for an evening or for years to come. Our prayer is that we continue to glorify God above all we do and that He continues to guide and bless us in this sacred work. 💜

I just ordered the cutest onesie for a Christmas gift and while it makes my heart happy that I get to be an Aunt yet again it also makes it hurt just a little because I should be ordering another for our sweet babe who would have been making his or her appearance oh so soon! The closer we get to what should have been our due date the more my heart is aching for what should have been. Lately so many people have been commenting how I should be so relieved that I’m not pregnant right now because of all my back issues, and all I can think is that I would gladly suffer through all the pain if it meant getting to have our sweet babe here with us in this life! It hurts and people don’t think, they don’t know that we were trying before the doctor told us to stop till we figure out my back issues, they don’t know that because of theses issues we might not ever get to try again. That was the plan, our hopes and dreams are yet again being crushed because my body sucks! I know God’s plan for my family is far greater than mine and I’m excited for what we have come to see that plan is, but it doesn’t take away the hurt, the hurt of losing our baby this year, the hurt of losing our dream of having a baby in the future. I wish I could change those things, but it’s not in my power so I’m holding tight to the the quote “having faith in god includes having faith in his timing” someday it’s all going to be okay and I will look back at these trials with gratitude and see them as stepping stones that lead to a life far better than anything I could have dreamed! .

Hey there #LAMFAM if you watch my stories you know I’m only 2 Chapters away from finishing my “Life After Miscarriage” Ebook!
•
I don’t think I’ve ever been more open, more proud, or more scared of something. I’ve offered it to a couple of friends for honest feedback and opinions and some LOVE IT and some are like “whoa are you sure you wanna put that out there?”
•
It’s def made me second guess How open I actually am but after much thought and consideration I reminded myself that Truth & Vulnerability are my Super Power! Truth & Vulnerability are what is going to change lives. Truth & Vulnerability is going to open up the doors for judgement but more important than that it’s what’s going to change this World and the #LAMFAM lives I’m doing this all for in the first place.
•
So Get Ready ya’ll! It’s ALL going to be out there for whomevers eyes to read. 2 Chapters left 🙌🏼 •
If you haven’t DM’d me your email address yet and you want to be notified of Launch shoot it my way!!!!

LOVE YOU ALL! 😘

Aujourd'hui je suis triste 😭😭, je suis inconsolable. #miscarriage  Bye Bye Baby
Sterling at 11 months, the same age as the twins are now ✨
Over the weekend we were talking to a nice gentleman whom we know. His daughter got married at the same venue as Matt and I the day before us so we kind of shared that weekend via coordinating wedding events around each other. He was catching us up on the happenings of his grown children’s lives and mentioned his eldest daughter was expecting her 6th child in a few months. Without pause he added it would be her 4th living child and that 2 were previously miscarried. 
It made me think about what we consider “our children” and many miscarried children are only quietly remembered in private and never acknowledged openly when talking about the headcount of a family. 
It all depends on what you believe regarding the beginning of life but to me it’s simple. Life starts at conception and regardless of how or when their life ends, they are your children. I loved how he so calmly and causally said it. So many people tip toe around the subject and rightfully so; it’s a very emotional and fueled topic. Everyone’s fertility journey is different and it’s often not what it appears from the outside. Even to people who we know well.
Without specifying circumstances, how many children do you have? Comment below and take a moment to mentally hug and appreciate each one ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜🖤

Good Morning! I named this quilt #hopegatheredquilt for a few reasons - the most obvious is that the collection I’m using is Gathered by Bonnie Christine. The second is the word HOPE has been swarming around in my head the past few weeks. I really want to know what that word truly means. So, I’m starting a new quilt AND to look up different verses about Hope from the Bible. I literally stumbled on this one today, it’s a couple verses so bear with it because this ties it all together. 🌿🌼🍃 “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a HOPE. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will hear you. You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart. I will be found by you, declares the Lord, and I will restore your fortunes and GATHER you from all the nations and all the places where I have driven you, declares the Lord, and I will bring you back to the place from which I sent you into exile.”
‭‭Jeremiah‬ ‭29:11-14‬ ‭ESV‬‬ http://bible.com/59/jer.29.11-14.esv 🌿🌼🍃 He gives His people hope and He gathers His people. So beautiful. This was a set up from God. I don’t even know the full meaning behind all this BUT I am thankful. The Word of God is living and powerful. 🙏🌼🌿🍃 Have a great Thanksgiving and if you have a thought or verse on hope please share it. We all need hope. 🌿🌼🍃 #hopegatheredquilt #agfgathered #bonniechristinefabric #hope #belief #gathered #bible #truth #wearefabrics #beautifullymendedfabric #beautifullymended #miscarriage #infertility #hopeless #encouragement #thankful

The last time I shared a post on Instagram was the day before our miscarriage. At 10 weeks Ben and I had lost our little tiny bean of love and hope. It was (and still is) the most profound loss of my life. The grief consumed us and swallowed us whole, but our love never wavered, if anything I have fallen more deeply in love with this man. The loss of our almost baby has changed us greatly; our perception of life, how we fuel our body, how we speak to others and so much more. The silver lining is we definitely want to be parents and we know we’d be damn good at the job! On Monday, Ben got into a horrible car accident on Highway 2 outside of Airdrie on his way to Edmonton for work. I will never forget that phone call, the sense of terror that overwhelmed me, waiting at the hospital because I beat the ambulance there, and finally seeing him, strapped to a gurney with a neck brace on. I cried tears of joy and relief just knowing he was alive. We cried together. And the first thing this man says to me, “I’m still here, and I still need to make babies with you.” 💗 •

B is expected to make a full recovery after fracturing his C7. He has to wear a halo, which is kind of perfect because all I listened to on repeat when we first met was, “Halo” by Beyoncé.

I hate that it's come to this.. I hate that I have no options. Applied to so many houses not getting an approval. Nowhere to go with 3 kids & partner with disability and I myself with that horrible endometriosis and scoliosis flaring up. We've been good tenants and pay our rent but yet again our landlord wants her house back to live in herself. Just want a roof over their heads by Christmas. Well actually we need to be out days before on the 16th. This happened 3 years ago when my son was born prematurely and I fell pregnant right after I had him then our landlord said they would sell house so we must be our by 21 December. This added to my stress & I miscarried. We were blessed with a rainbow baby two years later who was born right here on the couch prematurely also. She is now 1. I just want my 11,3 & 1 year old to have a home. Once we have a rental and I'm  back on my feet I'm gonna work through the endometriosis pain ect to study my qualification which I now have to put off again due to this almost homeless situation and no money or time to do it- it will only take a year to qualify then I can work - once working and we are stable I'm going to help others like us & those unfortunate souls already on the street. Where I live currently (need to be out by 16 December ) there's just over 800 houses- half sit empty all year until now when summer rolls around and holiday makers can rent them for several hundred a day. This happens everywhere in Australia while so many are forced onto the streets. No one wants to be homeless.. so in my desperation I have made a gofundme about a week ago and I'm now putting aside my embarrassment for my children and putting this post out there. If anyone wants to read our story the link is below & if you choose to help us I promise that I will pay it forward as soon as I'm back on my feet . #gofundme #rentalcrisis  #help #sad #family #victorianrentalcrisis #australianhousing #affordablehousing #homeless #invisibleillness #endometriosis #miscarriage #scoliosis #rentaltrap #rainbowbaby #funding #poverty  www.gofundme.com/family-of-5-need-home-before-xmas

Are you FUCKING kidding me????
Are you FUCKING kidding me????
Just when the caterpillar thought the world was over.....it became a butterfly. 🦋
After a loss, many Moms find comfort in signs and symbols.  For this Mom, butterflies and the idea of transformation are an important part of her and her babys' story..... of course her portrait had to relay this message. 😇
Ask me how I can turn your story and the memory of you child into a meaningful, heirloom portrait.  #anythingispossible

Sun is shining into our bedroom this morning and Graham now places his little hand on my belly hoping to feel baby sister kick ✨ We’re both still sick, and if we miss my favorite holiday my heart will be sad, but I’m so thankful for moments like this. I hope these little reminders of what you have to be thankful for pop up through out your day today, too 💛

Dear baby,
Who were you?
Who would you have been?
Who would you have turned into
Had you been allowed to grow?

Boy or girl?
Thinker or artist?
Loud or quiet?
Brown eyes like me?
Hazel like your father?
Or blue eyes like your sister?

We had names picked out
My grandmother's 
If you were a girl
She was strong,
A survivor 
She lived until she was 102 years
You didn't make it to 11 weeks
It wasnt the right name for you

If you were a boy 
We would have named you
After my grandfather
A scholar
A caregiver
A family man
He lived to his mid 90s
You didn't make it to 11 weeks
It wasnt the right name for you

We thought about your nursery
Next door to big sis 
Right across from us
Currently an office
But only until we need a nursery
Less living space for us
But more space for the living
It wasn't the right room for you

Counting the weeks
Until you'd arrive
We counted the days
Until April
When we would get to meet you
A spring baby
The season of birth and renewal
Walks in the fresh air
It wasn't the right time for you

I imagined 
Buying cotton onesies
Little sunhats
A fluffy blanket
Thin muslin swaddles 
A new crib
Taking the stroller out of storage
Preparing for new life
It wasn't preparation for you

7 weeks ago 
We lost you
Today you would have been 18 weeks
You would have been showing
I would have been in maternity
People would have known you existed
But they don't
People weren't meant to know you

But we did
And we miss you

GRATITUDE 💚
We hear a lot about it at Thanksgiving. But being grateful EVERY DAY is how you will begin to see change in your life.
This morning, I’m waking up thankful for my health and the health of Savannah and Max. And I’m also thankful for Gabriel, the baby I lost but who I was so lucky to hold even if it was for a short time. I’m thankful for all of the losses in my life. Because they taught me to love harder and louder. They taught me empathy and also showed me a strength in myself I didn’t know I had.
I’m not perfect by any means. But I strive to show gratitude daily. And the more thankful I am, the more life seems to bless me. Keep showing your gratitude, friends, even after the holiday passes. You’ll improve your life and the lives of those around you 💚

GRATITUDE 💚 We hear a lot about it at Thanksgiving. But being grateful EVERY DAY is how you will begin to see change in your life. This morning, I’m waking up thankful for my health and the health of Savannah and Max. And I’m also thankful for Gabriel, the baby I lost but who I was so lucky to hold even if it was for a short time. I’m thankful for all of the losses in my life. Because they taught me to love harder and louder. They taught me empathy and also showed me a strength in myself I didn’t know I had. I’m not perfect by any means. But I strive to show gratitude daily. And the more thankful I am, the more life seems to bless me. Keep showing your gratitude, friends, even after the holiday passes. You’ll improve your life and the lives of those around you 💚 . . . . . . #grateful  #thanksgiving  #blessed  #quote  #fitfam  #fitspo  #motivation  #love  #happy  #rainbowbaby  #miscarriage  #miscarriageawareness

So I apologised to hubby for now 🙈 but I decided to have a look round our local Range and it’s put me in a better mood! also decided to change my colour scheme from purple to ice blue this year which I’ve been saying I’m going to do for years! roll on Christmas! And if I don’t get a BFP for Christmas this year, hopefully I’ll be holding my newborn next Christmas instead! 💗💗🤶🏼❄️

Paul writes in Philippians 4:6-7, "Do not be anxious about anything..." Anything meaning nothing. Do not be anxious about your current situation (easier said than done).
The source of the anxiety doesn't always go away, but Paul tells us we can have peace that surpasses all understanding. You are wrestling in our heart and mind, but there is a peace that is available to you that can guard your heart and mind. It's a supernatural calmness that you can have. So, how do we get there? The clue is in the passage. "With everything by PRAYER and THANKSGIVING." You are still asking God to do something, but when we are thanking God with our prayers, we become a more grateful person and in return our hearts and minds fill up with peace and the focus gets off ourselves. ❤

Spontaneous Loss of... I felt you in
the space of two
heartbeats
a rhythm unlike 
my own
a descant to
my paltry melody 
In the land between
dream and waking
your voice sang
the darkness'
hymn calling
forth the light

As I reach out a
shaking hand you
are ripped from
me, my womb
withering
as claws racked the
cradle meant to 
keep you safe

Burning inside
freezing outside
I shiver as
Euphrates and Tigris
overflow
while white shadows with
blinding halos leave
us broken

“When you become more Courageous it prevents you from having a “getting by” attitude. You replace the victim mindset and it is your choice to live life well. You are no longer too busy or just getting by! Stop using powerless words such as “I can’t” “I’m too busy!” And instead Define yourself with empowering words! 
I CAN’T. 
Those were the words I cried to a few close friends and my husband when I learned my baby’s heart stopped. I could not wrap my head around fighting so hard after the first miscarriage and becoming this strong fearless woman only to be knocked down by the same exact thing that knocked me down before. I slipped into a victim mindset and powerless words crawled all over me (naturally) but I knew better. I knew I couldn’t keep myself there. 
We are not the victim of the circumstances, we are a result of what we choose to do with our circumstances. I know I can’t go back to the person I was before my heart was broken for the 2nd time, So I choose to fight to find a newer version of me, someone who is stronger than before !

We pray it encourages weary hearts as we get ready to celebrate Thanksgiving tomorrow. 🦃🍽🍁 “My husband and I had a miscarriage this year. It was, by far, one of the most trying and painful experiences of my life and of our marriage. So many emotions rattled around inside of me: sadness, guilt, worry, anger,…
Where does thankfulness come in during a season such as this? How do you reconcile what you’re feeling with what God’s word tells you?” 👉🏼Hop over to the Blog to read more, link in profile 💫
