Pregnant after a Loss

AW: We're Somewhat Out!

Yesterday we went and told dh's grandparents. One grandma was so excited for us, it was unreal! She even talked about her loss (which is huge since she's 76)!

The other grandma didn't really have a strong reaction, but she's happy. I think the loss stuff makes her uncomfortable since she's 86.

Then we tracked down one of dh's uncles & told him in person, he was excited in his own way, it was cute! Next I called one of my aunts & a cousin. The rest of our family will find out from our mom's or when they see us.

Eeeeeek!! Facebook will be in another 2weeks & I'm trying to figure out how to word it because my story is going on there too. O.M.G.

  • Congratulations! Going public is scary but so exciting! My FB announcement also acknowledged our losses. I used a picture that said we were expecting a rainbow this year and used a quote explaining what a rainbow baby is. It's such a personal decision, I think the most important thing is that it feels right for you and DH.

    Congrats on announcing! I'm glad you got some fun responses. 

    I think it is a really amazing idea to include your story along with your news. I hadn't thought of that with announcing, but now I'm curious. It feels better to me to acknowledge everything, but not sure how you pull that off. I'll have to think it over, I guess.

  • So exciting and scary!!! Eek!! We won't be doing a fb announcement (if we make it that far) until MAYBE after the birth. When (if) the time comes we decided we were just going to acknowledge the fact we had a long heart breaking road and mention this baby is our rainbow. Those who pick up on it do, and those who don't, don't. We aren't open with our loss so we aren't fully comfortable giving details.

    @Qfrump‌ I just spit my coffee out when I saw Kermie!
