As most of you know, I had a miscarriage in August.
I know…I’m weird…I talk about it.
Although I don’t buy the whole “everything happens for a reason” bologna, I do believe that good can come out of even the worst of situations. Although good may not be great, it’s better than bad. You get me? I knew that you would!
What’s the good, you ask? Well, I consider helping others as good….I hope to do just that.
Since having a miscarriage is a seriously taboo topic (who knew? trust me – I’ve found out that it is), I’ve had a hard time finding anyone with whom to relate. I’m a big blog follower and I found that there’s not much out there about women’s personal miscarriage experiences. Seeing as miscarriages are incredibly common…this made me incredibly annoyed. As we all know, not talking about particular taboo issues breeds shame. like a weed. and I am not having it.
[Here comes the good.]
My first blog just went live as a guest blogger on Babycenter.com [enter goosebumps – this is kind of a big deal for me!]. There will be 6 posts altogether over the next few weeks where I talk candidly about the devastating ins and outs of enduring a miscarriage…from finding out, to what it’s been like to go through, and finally to where we hope to go from here.
Please check out the first post and follow our journey. Maybe this opportunity will turn into something non-guestlike. A girl can dream!!!
Thank you for all of your positivity and support. I love my blog family!
p.s. The brother in-law comes in 3 days; the brother in 5! Check out our forecast =)
