From the Couple:
Pregnancy comes with many expectations and surprises. We are so grateful to be meeting our son in less than a month! The road here, however, certainly has been rocky. Last year we found out we were expecting. However, tragedy struck and we had miscarried our first child. After our initial excitement and tears of joy earlier, this tragedy sent me into a spiral. I had never felt such deep sorrow. It was isolating. I felt so guilty. I felt like a part of me was broken. The loss and trauma was almost too much for me to handle. I am so grateful to have had the support of my husband and friends. Without it, I could not have had the courage to try again.
We fortunately were able to get pregnant weeks later. But with it came an incessant anxiety due to what transpired. Slowly after seeing my belly grow week by week, we were able to accept that this pregnancy was “for real”. I slowly let go of my anxieties and eased into the complete happiness of expecting this very, very, wanted child. Everything that came my way, I took in stride, especially any of the more uncomfortable symptoms. I am just so thankful to be pregnant! Despite the daunting uncertainty of this life changing event that is to come, we know we are ready to be parents.
Through our journey, we were tested. We have realized, albeit in an unfortunate way, that this little one is really what we want. No matter the road to getting here, we are beyond excited to meet our little man.
Thank you Sun & Sparrow for being there since our engagement to capture all our beautiful moments. See you at the newborn shoot!
