Just a pregnant woman, trying to embrace Autumn while keeping her blood pressure down.
Also…didn’t know this is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Day.
This kid is a rainbow baby and I’ve spent most of the past 6 months in disbelief, getting sick, then believing but also not being so sure how things will go on the other side.
This time of year also marks the miscarriage I had and the past two Autumns we’ve received invitations to the local cemetery from the hospital’s spiritual care service, in 2020 the ceremony couldn’t happen due to the pandemic.
It’s a weird feeling, holding hope, excitement and possibility alongside grief, wondering what could have been and trying to practice acceptance of what is.
I don’t have any answers but I no longer feel as untrusting of my body and if anything, my intuition and willingness to listen to my body, despite what others are telling me, even in medical environments, has saved my health a few times now.
Hope you’re doing okay wherever you are reading this from. 💚
