Milestones

Yesterday marked two things: 24 weeks in this pregnancy, and the day that we would have celebrated Grey's first birthday. It seems amazing to think that I would have a one year old today if I hadn't had my first miscarriage. In all honesty, I wasn't as sad as I expected to be. I still wish that he/she had made it, but it's amazing what a year and a half of healing can do for you.

Instead of lamenting what could have been, I'm choosing to celebrate the amazing life that is growing inside of me today, and hoping for the best.

Such a lovely positive post to read.

Whilst we never forget those we've lost, you're right in that time does begine to heal and it's wonderful that you, me and so many other have 'another chance'.

I can't believe you are 24 weeks! Time is moving on so quick.

My thoughts are with you!

I'm inspired by your outlook and hope to adopt the same as my baby S's would-be first birthday is approaching in a couple of weeks.

"Instead of lamenting what could have been, I'm choosing to celebrate the amazing life that is growing inside of me today, and hoping for the best." You should be proud of yourself for arriving at this place. It isn't an easy road getting there.

I am 30 weeks with baby #2 and both pregnancies I kept counting down the milestones... 12 wks, 24 wks, 28 wks, etc.

I'm so glad that healing is finally happening for you. I remember how hard a time I had when I miscarried and how hard it was during my next pregnancy because I was still grieving the loss. You want to celebrate the new life growing in you, but it's not as easy as it sounds. But time has a way of dulling the edges of the pain and letting you feel other things again. (((hugs)))

You are so positive. We felt the same way when we hit the "due date" this past December and the what would have been 1st Birthday of our baby. It was hard, but we had to go on.
