Our rainbow baby has a name || Happy National Rainbow Baby Day || Jacksonville, Florida
Rainbows come after a storm as passed. It's to signify that there are better days ahead A rainbow baby is a baby conceived after a miscarriage. Today we celebrate rainbow babies and this amazing joy after a very dark moment.
More specifically I want to share with you some news about my own rainbow baby. As some of you know I'm currently expecting!! This was of course after we experienced our first miscarriage. At 6 weeks along, our baby no longer could grow. While a very easy miscarriage in terms of pain and quickness it definitely caught us off guard. You don't really expect it can happen to you.
Until it does of course.
We are very lucky in the way that we are very fertile people and immediately was pregnant again. But this time was different. Instead of feeling immense joy and happiness we were scared. Instead of looking at baby products, we counted days, making sure each day we were still pregnant. Even now at 14 weeks along, I find myself holding my breath every time I feel a twinge or a cramp. Hoping that it's just normal and not something more serious.
But this is no way to live. We have learned one thing, that we truly need to embrace every little moment, celebrate every little victory.
So let's celebrate.
Yesterday we had our gender reveal scan!! We know the gender of our baby.
