About Sarah Cox

Sarah Pruitt Cox lives in the Dallas, Texas area. She works full time as an accountant and tax preparer. She is the mother of a 4 year old son and three babies in Heaven. Sarah had trouble getting pregnant, but gave birth to a healthy baby boy named Nolan in 2014. Afterwards, getting pregnant was still a struggle. She had a chemical pregnancy in 2016, followed by a miscarriage in early 2017. Sarah became pregnant with her daughter, Jasmine Grace, in August of 2017. This was a rough pregnancy, and at the 13 week ultrasound they discovered that Jasmine had CDH (congenital diaphragmatic hernia). After an amnio was done a few months later, they discovered she also had mosaic trisomy 15.  Sarah and her husband had made plans to see a specialist in Florida, but the issues were too much for Jasmine and her heart stopped beating around 32 weeks. Sarah then had to deliver her, where she was born stillborn. She now wants to help other women who have experienced a life-changing loss like this and ensure that no one ever feels alone when going through this. Sarah has been writing about her loss through her blog Life is Stupidly Unfair: A Mom's Journey of Survival.

Sarah’s Bump Day Blog, Week 22: No Such Thing As A Coincidence

We had another MFM appointment today at 22 weeks. My husband was not able to go with me today, so my mom and brother came. My mom was at a lot of the appointments with our angel daughter when my husband was not able to go, but my brother had never been to one before. [...]

Sarah’s Bump Day Blog, Week 21: Dealing with the Anxiety

A pregnancy after a loss often feels frustrating. There are times that you will get good news. An ultrasound will go well, the genetic testing will come back normal, you will feel the baby move, or hear the heartbeat. For a few seconds, hours, or sometimes even weeks, you feel happy and you feel like [...]

Sarah’s Bump Day Blog, Week 20: Are You Going to Have More Kids?

I often get asked that seemingly innocent question, “Are you having more kids or are you stopping with two?”  There are so many things that I want to say in response to this question, but also never want to go into all those details with people. So, I usually just say that yes, we will [...]

Sarah’s Bump Day Blog, Week 19: Measuring Pregnancy in Milestones

It seems like every pregnant woman measures their pregnancy in milestones, whether it is conscious or not. For a typical pregnancy, most women celebrate the first ultrasound and hearing the heartbeat, finding out the sex of the baby, the anatomy scan, sometimes reaching 24 weeks, or the mark of viability, and finally, the birth of [...]

Sarah’s Bump Day Blog, Week 18: Anatomy Scan

My anatomy scan was on the 14th and was something I had been dreading. Even though I regularly see the MFM, who checks all the organs and parts every time I go, I was still scared that something would pop up now that the baby was big enough to see more. The morning of, I [...]

Sarah’s Bump Day Blog, Week 17: The Upcoming Anatomy Scan

My anatomy scan is coming up quickly and is only about a week away. It is something I have been both dreading and looking forward to. I’m scared to go because even though we have had normal ultrasounds up until this point, I am still afraid they will find something wrong. On the other hand, [...]

Sarah’s Bump Day Blog, Week 16: Shopping for the New Baby

We went into a baby store over the weekend to look for some furniture for the new baby. I always love the smell of the baby stores because it’s a familiar smell. As we went in though, I realized the last time we set foot in one was for our son. With all the stress [...]

Sarah’s Bump Day Blog, Week 15: An Emotional Holiday Season

I now have hit 15 weeks, which is only 5 weeks away from half-way. Sometimes this pregnancy seems to be going by super fast and I can’t believe I am almost half-way done.  Other times, it seems to drag and I look at the 25 weeks ahead I still have and wonder how I will [...]

Sarah’s Bump Day Blog, Week 14: Meeting with the MFM

We had another appointment with the maternal fetal medicine specialist (MFM) on Monday. I was actually fine leading up to the appointment all last week and even yesterday. But, of course the anxiety came back this morning and I was freaking out right before. I tried to do my calming breathing technique, but just couldn't [...]

Sarah’s Bump Day Blog, Week 13: Planning for the Baby

As of last Sunday, I am officially 13 weeks and almost out of the first trimester. Most people breathe a sense of relief after leaving the first trimester because that is supposedly when the miscarriage rates drop and also when some of the annoying first trimester symptoms start to go away. Even though I had [...]
