Some people say “Wait until you are 12 weeks” before announcing a pregnancy. What if you miscarry? The statistics are real the odds of miscarriage are about 10 to 15 out of 100 pregnancies.
I can’t speak for everyone but, here’s my why.
My odds of miscarriage are a lot higher than most. I’ve struggled with infertility for the past 7 years, and it has taken so much happiness from me. From IVF to IVF, only having a 1% chance of natural conception. Being so stressed out about just getting pregnant to miscarrying my daughter at 3 months. Then to being pregnant with my son and worrying about every little cramp, unable to fully accept my pregnancy until viability. Not really feeling at ease until I could feel him kick daily.
Whether I’m pregnant for 9 months or a few weeks, whether people know or not it doesn’t change that I grew a baby. A baby who’s a part of me. A baby that I’ve prayed and hope for and a baby I have fell in love with since getting that first positive test.
So I chose to wake up each day happy saying “I’m pregnant” and living in the moment. I don’t know what tomorrow holds but my body did and amazing thing, so I’m going to enjoy it.
I’m a mom to a angel baby, a rainbow baby and currently carrying a miracle baby.
