Pregnancy after loss is . . .
A prayer with every breath.
Fear of getting too attached.
Guilt for moving forward.
Holding your breath for 9 months. (God, please don’t let it be less.)
Learning to exhale.
Going to your OB appointments, and being flooded with memories.
Reminding yourself over and over this is a new baby, a new pregnancy, and new memories.
Feeling overwhelmed that history will repeat anyway.
A walk of faith.
The deepest gratitude you could ever feel.
Counting each day, each week.
Fleeting peace when you pass the date of your previous loss.
A nagging feeling that you and your baby still won’t be safe.
Relief at every heartbeat.
Terror that something that might go wrong.
6 lbs 7 oz on your chest.
Pregnancy after loss is different for every woman for every pregnancy.
But one thing it is . . .
