Life with Coco and Gigi... and Jack-Jack too!

Life as a Mom, A Homesteader, A Blogger and A Wife.

Enough to go around

One of the hardest parts about this experience has been the impact on our families. It was devastating for both of us, but to see the pain in the eyes of our parents was excrutiating. There have been so many people pulling for us and praying for us for two and a half years. Because all of those people have been walking this path with us, they too have had to feel this blow along with us. Immediately after getting the bad news from the doctor I kept having visions of having to tell our parents and worst of all Genna and the boys. How the hell do you explain this all to children. They were so excited and now it is all over. They have been great about it, but I know they are disappointed.

I was so happy that this experience was something we were all going to share. We were all going to enjoy the pregnancy, we were all going to share the joy of meeting this little person and we were all going to raise this baby as a family and now it is all gone. I wish I could take all of our pain away, but I can't. I guess we will all have to let time do its' thing.

We have learned one hard lesson. Next time, God willing there is one, we will tell only immediate family members during the first trimester. It is just to hard to explain.

It's a hard line to walk. On one hand you want to shout it from the rooftops b/c you're so excited, but on the other hand heaven forbid if something was to go wrong again it's so hard to have to deal w/ "untelling".

We followed the rule that we'd only tell people that we would want for support during another miscarriage. After seeing the hb at an u/s or making it out of the 1st tri, we'd let the news be spread.

About this blog

Over 8 years we have struggled through 3 IUI's, 6 rounds of IVF, several RE's, hundreds of appointments and the loss of three little angels. Now we find ourselves the proud parents of two perfect little girls and a wonderful little boy!!

Both of our girls struggle with some disabilities but that won't keep us down. Each day has it's own brand of insanity but we love it. Most days I am more monkey wrangler than mother but I do the best I can. Todays goal - getting to tomorrow.
