I cannot believe it has been one full year since I heard the words, “You’re in the early stages of miscarriage, I’m sorry.” Disbelief, confusion, and fear are some of the emotions that consumed me on that day.

Jessica’s Story of Pregnancy after Loss

A Guest Post by Jessica Burke I'm finding it difficult to breath this month. At 24 weeks pregnant it seems too early to feel so out of breath. Maybe this shortness of breath has more to do with the month of October than with the month of pregnancy I'm in. In less than one week [...]

The Language of Pregnancy after Loss

A Guest Post by Heather Johnston Welliver I’m pregnant.  But I wouldn’t say I’m pregnant again, the way so many people do these days.  I say I’m pregnant with my third child. I’ve always been a grammar nerd, a stickler for syntax and semantics.  Ask my husband, who does not enjoy being corrected by me. I [...]
