Warning, pregnancy mentioned


I am not sure why I have been so afraid to post this but I am expecting again. I am terrified but so excited at the same time. A pregnancy after loss is so darn different. As many others on this journey have said they feel "robbed" well I agree. I want to be jumping up for joy like before without having to be worried so much. October is such a hard month for me as it is and now adding those lovely pregnancy hormones to it just makes it a little more overwhelming. I have given it so much thought whether or not to do another blog for this new journey but I can't even keep up with this one sometimes so I am going to just keep this one. I know for some of you hearing about rainbow's isn't easy and I feel bad but everything I do in my life will always include Sami. I feel like this little one to be is a true gift from above. Let's see if the dream I had with Marie (telling me that my son Joseph will come home to me soon) is true.
I will have a lovely gift for my May birthday in 2011. Wish me luck and please pray that I will be able to come home with a live baby this time.

CONGRATULATIONS!!! I was so hoping when I opened this post I would read the words above. I am so happy for you. I know this month will be hard emotionally and with pregnancy hormones...I can't even imagine. You will be in my thoughts and prayers constantly.

Michelle said...

Oh, yeeaaay! I will keep you in my prayers that you get to bring home a live baby. It is a hard journey (pregnancy after loss) but well worth it. Glad to hear you'll be keeping it all on this blog, I kind of wish I would have done that-it is hard to keep up with two.

I am on the road with you (and keeping my one blog) I have been nothing short of terrifed and honestly have not told anyone outside my tight circle ... except my blog... I'm 13 weeks on Thursday and still am not ready to make the announcement. Guess I need to wait for Josephs 1 year in heaven to come before I figure this all out. So if you need to talk.. I'm here to listen.. most of all CONGRATULATIONS

Stephanie said...

WHOA! That is terrific! I am sure that everyone in this community is going to be supportive ~ I know I will be!

Take it easy, this is a strange and different journey we are all on with our rainbows. Hope your pregnancy is smooth and perfect!

Oh I am so happy for you that you have taken this step! No, PAL isn't easy... But like everything else, just take it one day at a time and before you know it, Sami's little brother or sister will be in your arms. I agree with the blog thing... I attempted to do a 'pregnancy after loss' blog but struggled to write about my pregnancy. We didn't even tell our family until I was 25 wks along (and I'm small, so it wasn't easy to hide.) Keeping you in my thoughts. I also wanted to mention that I had a dream a while ago and you and Sami were in it. In my dream, we were in the hospital and our babies were in rooms next to each other. The only really clear part that I remember was although our girls were given a poor prognosis, we both discovered that they were going to live. That was a hard dream to wake up from. ((hugs))

Holy awesomeness. May. Joseph. I am loving it!!!! Can you tell I'm hoping you get a boy? lol ;) no, I'll be over the moon for you either way! Lisette, I am so happy for you and so honored to be your friend.

Pregnancy is not the same, and for that I am so sorry. I hope and pray you find peace, true peace to help carry your though this time and help you enjoy this beautiful gift more than you ever thought possible.

Love to you,

XOXO

I'm so happy for you! A new baby - maybe a "Joseph." I'm praying for a take-home baby for your birthday!
Sadly, you are no longer innocent about pregnancy. I wish you were still innocent. I wish you still had Sami. She was and is a blessing in her own way.
Here's to positive thoughts and (I hope) a smooth pregnancy. I am truly thrilled for you!

AnnaMarie said...

i feel such joy in my heart for you and that beautiful little bean!

Michelle said...

Congrats!!! I know how hard this road is. I waited until after 12 weeks to announce on my blog and still have not announced IRL. My own children still do not know. Your choice to keep everything on this blog is the right one for you and I support you 100% I know that this is going to be a rough road, but try to enjoy it as much as you can too. Again I an so happy that we get to do this together. (((HUGS)))

Congratulations! It is a real roller coaster of emotions but feeling that baby inside kicking away is such amazing solace. I wish you a healthy and rleaxing pregnancy.

Christy said...

I am so happy to hear this amazing news!!! It's terrifying--but beautiful. I'll be keeping you, Sami, and new little one close in my thoughts.

April said...

Congrats, Lisette! I hope you have a smooth pregnancy and will be bringing home a healthy baby before you know it!

Congratulations Lisette! So happy for you. I hope to have a rainbow of my own one of these days. I pray for a healthy baby coming in May!!

Lori said...

Trying to catch up on things, so I am behind, but SO, SO, SO thrilled for you and absolutely know about the conflicting feelings...praying for a perfect and uneventful pregnancy and that sweet little Joseph (or Josephine, just in case? :) is on his way in May!!!!!!!!!!!!

Mary said...

This is such good news! Congratulations! I am so very happy for you.

It is very hard to have a pregnancy after a loss. If you were worrisome in your first pregnancy, it is multiplied. If you weren't, your world is now a big ball of fears. But we are here for you.

Laura said...

I haven't peeked at your blog in a while....I have been thinking of you! I am so happy for you and know the next pregnancy is full of so many different emotions. Keep staying present....you are a precious mama.

Praying for you and your sweet baby.

Sending love,
Laura
