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 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 [...]

A Loss Mama’s Experience with Genetic Testing

Photo by Kyle Broad on Unsplash When I was pregnant with my son, I was lucky that it was a fairly easy pregnancy.  When we were offered the typical genetic testing at the time, it was the NT (nuchal translucency) scan, the basic test that everyone can do that has the ultrasound along with a blood [...]

When To Announce A Rainbow Pregnancy

One of the things I have been thinking about lately is when to announce when we do get pregnant again. There is a part of you that wants to wait even longer because you feel like your pregnancy isn’t safe, even after the first trimester. My loss was at 32 weeks. So if I waited [...]
