Pregnant after a Loss

Success Story

I feel like these pieces of hope always helped me...

I had two early miscarriages over the course of the last two years so discovering this pregnancy was both thrilling and horrifying.

To our surprise (although, not really since she clearly has her mind made up about what she wants!), my water broke on Sunday morning at 35 weeks, 4 days. I labored for almost 18 hours and at 11:32pm, Avery Rose entered the world at 5lbs, 11oz, 18in.

She has been in the NICU but for nothing serious - normal preemie monitoring (heart rate, temps, jaundice, blood sugar) but we are hopeful that we can bring her home today.

It's just amazing because I literally never thought we would bring a healthy life into this world but here we are. Keep hope. Keep sharing. The more voices there are the more we can help each other get to this place.

Good luck on your journeys!
