About Mikey Fuller

Mikey Fuller is a military spouse who currently lives in Fort Drum, NY with her husband, Shawn. After a year of trying and going through the heartbreak of miscarriage, Mikey and her husband were finally pregnant with their daughter, Amelia. Despite having extra ultrasound scans due to developing pre-eclampsia, a rare pregnancy complication called Vasa Previa went undetected. When Mikey was 37-weeks, she was induced due to her blood pressure becoming too dangerous. However, her delivery quickly became an emergency when her water broke and the exposed blood vessel ruptured. Their daughter passed away eight short days after birth on January 6, 2016. Since their loss, Mikey and Shawn have been blessed with the opportunity to be foster parents and are currently working towards adopting their sunshine baby. Now, one year after their loss, Mikey found out that she is expecting again and decided to share her journey early on in hopes to provide courage to other/future PAL moms. In honor of their daughter, Amelia, Mikey and Shawn started Miles for Amelia to help raise awareness of Vasa Previa in hopes that no other family has to endure the preventable heartbreak they went through.

Mikey’s Bump Day Blog, Week 30: The Final Two Months

Nine weeks, just nine weeks or less to go until we meet our little rainbow. The days feel like minutes and then here we are, another week closer to the big day.

Mikey’s Bump Day Blog, Week 28 – Seven Months Down

Where did the past seven months go? I know I spent majority of this pregnancy full of anxiety, panicking over the worst-case scenario, and worried about my due date, but how did the third trimester just sneak up on me? This week I need to take my glucose test and pray that I pass it, [...]

Mikey’s Bump Day Blog, Week 27 – The Final Stretch

Well, hello third trimester. I don’t think I was ready to say goodbye to the second trimester yet, but time seems to be flying now. There are just 83 days to go, and I’m not ready. While I do feel a lot more confident about going through birth again this time, it still hasn’t fully [...]

Mikey’s Bump Day Blog, Week 26 – I’m Not Sorry

Everyone grieves differently and everyone’s loss is different. No two people can fully understand what the other’s exact feelings are, but for those that experienced that dark, and lonely road of pregnancy/child loss, they can relate to the horrible emotions.

Mikey’s Bump Day Blog, Week 21: Thank You My Little Angel, Sunshine, and Rainbow

This past week, I was full of mixed emotions. Mother’s Day is one day out of the year that will never be the same for me.
