My husband and I found out a week ago that we were expecting……. and with that came a HUGE bag of emotions, the biggest one being excitement.
Over the last year my husband and I have lost two pregnancies, one at 22 weeks and one at 7 weeks. With both we waited until it was socially safe to talk about it. Both ended in the same way…….. without a baby. With both the only thing that got me through was with the support of our loved ones keeping our pieces together.
It’s an insanely crazy situation that pregnant women and couples get put into. Be super excited your expecting…..but be afraid somethings going to go wrong….. keep it secret so others don’t have to feel your pain or loss.
The craziest part…… 1 in 5 pregnancies ends in a miscarriage for a wide variety of reasons. Can you imagine how many women that leaves carrying this burden of disappointment alone or with a small few? All because society said ‘wait until its safe to talk’
I say FUCK THAT! I want to talk openly about pregnancy and with that all the risks, excitements, joys, fears and anxieties that come with it. And you know what could happen…… we could lose this pregnancy….. and I’ll talk about that too!
