Due Date: Monday 17 July 2017
It has been marked in our minds since I saw two blue lines appear on multiple pregnancy tests way back in October. We found out at week 1 of my pregnancy so today has been a long time coming. Today is my due date.
Due date but still no sign of baby. We are happy with that. Bump will arrive when he or she wants to and it won’t be long until we get to meet him or her.
Our Rainbow Baby
All babies are special but this one will be extra special for us. Bump is our rainbow baby. We weren’t expecting to be pregnant so quickly after I miscarried. But we were and touch wood so far all is dandy.
I am summing up the courage to write about my miscarriage experience. It wasn’t the nicest of experiences but miscarriages aren’t meant to be nice. I am still mourning the loss of that baby, no doubt about it. However, I am very much of the view that us ladies (and the partners) need to talk more about miscarriage. It is so common (apparently 1 in 4 pregnancies in the UK) but yet there are millions of us suffering in silence. As I say, more on that when I build up the courage to finally publish my miscarriage story.
When Bump arrives we will be so excited (and exhausted!). We will spare a moment to think of the baby who wasn’t meant to be and be extra grateful for Bump.
Due date and beyond
I am still planning to have Week 40 of My Pregnancy Journal up on Thursday and we have a couple of other posts ready to go. Clearly if there is little action on the blog, you will know that Bump has arrived.
We look forward to introducing you all to Bump in the coming days.
See you on the other side.
