So after our heartbreaking holiday season of having a miscarriage we really were ready for a life cleanse! Which is exactly what we did! We took that time to remove any negativity out of our lives, spend more meaningful bonding time as a family, and overall just feel happy!!
Well one night (4 weeks after my miscarriage) we were ready to go out on a sushi date with my brother, my husbands brother, and his friend and I just had this feeling I was pregnant. I had been nauseous, my breasts were LARGE and sore, and I just felt it! So I had my husband pick up a test on the way home and I took it! Negative! We were a little let down but to be honest it was only 4 weeks since the miscarriage so I wasn’t that shocked. We went out, had an amazing dinner and I enjoyed a nice glass of merlot 😊.
The next week came and it was Sunday, which meant mimosas in our house! I knew my first menstrual cycle would be coming, but I still just felt so pregnant so before I had a mimosa I had to find out. I had an extra test left over from the week before so I figured, what the hell.. let me take it. Low and behold POSITIVE! I was shocked!! I ran out of the bathroom and screamed “WE’RE PREGNANT!!!!” My husbands sweet sweet face dropped and he was so excited (not sure if it was the “we’re pregnant, or the fact he now gets to drink the whole bottle of champagne)
I called the doctor the next morning and due to my circumstances they saw me that day for blood work! The blood work came back great and the next week we went in for an ultrasound to see how far along I was! We were both so nervous as to what we may see! But there it was a beautiful little bean with a strong heartbeat! We cried we were so happy! We were 5 weeks 5 days pregnant, which means we conceived December 5th! ( my brothers bday lol) A week after we miscarried and recharged our life! We have prayed for this and to have it come so quickly was the greatest blessing!
We are now three months along and are expecting our rainbow baby in early September!! 💝💙
