Can finally share the best news I’ve had in 5 months! Confirmed today we are 13 weeks along with a little rainbow baby. Thank you to those who offered support, kind words, or even just respected our need for space after losing twins last spring - and apologies for ignoring anyone who had tried to reach out/ask how he pregnancy was going. Your messages didn’t go unnoticed or unappreciated, I was just exhausted and drained from dealing with it and having to talk about it. Needless to say, we are in a MUCH happier/better place now. Got to see our small bean, little legs and feet, tiny cutie arms, and a beating heart, etc. Today was extremely emotional, nerve-wracking, and ultimately very special for us. I did this little doodle last week to combat anxiety of the unknown before this initial ultrasound/scan to confirm everything was going well this time around. (I found a drawing online of jack and Sally styled as the Addams, got inspired to add a pregnant belly and make my own, shittier, version of it☺️). The force is definitely strong with this one, my dad was getting after me recently for wearing too much black and not having enough colour in my life, so a rainbow baby seems like a perfect addition 🌈🖤
(Please refrain from sharing this with people who have expressed their dislike for me or their happiness over my previous loss - had enough of them lurking on my social media when I announced the previous pregnancy lmao.. what a sad bunch they are, but someone must’ve informed them regardless).
