These gloomy days are hard. It’s been raining & dark all day and that just makes me want to curl up in bed! But not quite an option with two kids 😉 When in doubt, bathtime! 💦

After the loss of a baby, a momma’s heart can be so broken & so full at the same time. And that’s ok. 💕

I am so honored that so many people have reached out to me... commented, sent messages, texted me... with THEIR stories. YOUR STORY matters, too. Don’t ever forget that your grief, whether 25 years ago or 5 days ago, is important. No matter how “far along” you were or how “old” your baby was... that baby deserves to be remembered. Thank you for sharing your stories with me. Only you know how you felt when you saw that first pregnancy test and only you know how you felt when you realized your heart was being broken. I truly believe that hearing each other’s stories helps heal. I am humbled that so many of you have shown your support and love. Thank you, from my heart.

When my brother died in infancy, my father penned a piece entitled, “When the Heavens Aren’t Open”. The title always stuck with me. But I don’t think the heavens are closed. The heavens are open, but I have no idea why. More on this on the blog. Link in profile.

I love hanging out in Baby Finny’s room ✨
Today I baked muffins instead of going to the gym, I laid on the couch way to long and ate way tooooo much dinner.. but life is all about balance right?!!! I can’t believe we’re almost halfway there to meeting our little bundle of joy that has already brought us hope and happiness. 💗 .

One of the nurses on the bereavement team for our hospital told me that she can never remember my name. Instead, she knows me as Scotty’s mommy.
Best. Compliment. Ever.💙

I just feel kind of lost... I dont know what's next.

When I was pregnant I knew I was counting down the weeks to have my baby.

I knew I was watching milestones, watching my belly grow and buying baby clothes.

I knew I was reading reviews on car seats and baby carriers because those were next on my purchase list.

I knew I was peeing every five minutes and waking through the night craving taco bell.
I knew that I was making plans for our future with our baby.

And now it's all gone.

So today I just feel kind of lost.

For me…. There is no reason NOT to do this. For me it’s a no brainier….
1. This solution helped me get in pre pregnancy clothes in 30 days, with both my first and second baby.
2. After my second post partumn transformation, I decided I wanted to see what happens if I don’t quit, and kept doing it. How…..I dug into this COMMUNITY and kept digging into it……
3. EVEN through Seasonal Blues,,,
4. Even through a Miscarriage……
5. Even through a new business start up with my husband
6. AND through my first FIT Pregnancy with my newest baby Lily.
7. 6 months post baby I’m now feeling those muscles pop and loving it,,,,,,,,but what really gets me excited are all the INTERNAL CHANGES………
8. After struggling with depression since age 15, and 10 years of being on meds. I have now been depression MED free for 3 months. This is so huge!!!!!!! I didn’t know this would be possible for me, but healthy living, mind, body and soul does have a positive effect on ones life!

I’m filling up spots for my MARCH group… Excited to see the positive changes that are going to begin in my new challengers this coming month!!!! Drop an I’m IN below if you want in or DEETS PLEASE if you need more info. If this busy mom, can do this through all the ups and downs of life, I believe in you GIRL! ❤️ Coach Ash

It’s been 5 days since we lost our second child. But we thank God for our first child, who gives us comfort and smile through the whole process. Appreciate what we have and treasure all the memories we once had. 💕

THIS. This has been my life for the past week. Obsessing and worrying and wondering if something is wrong with me. I did not want to share that we had another miscarriage ... the second in the last 3 months......
BUT.. it’s been in reading and hearing other people’s stories that has gotten me through this dark, lonely and confusing time, so I feel it is my duty to share. *******
1 in 4 pregnancies unfortunately ends in loss. And I am now in the 2% that experiences two in a row. This is not a club anyone wants to be in but here I am....It’s a hard pill to swallow and not knowing why is even harder. ******
I am with you sisters and I feel your pain. We will get through this.
******
I hope one day soon I can share the good news of our double 🌈 🌈 baby... #multiplemiscarriages #pregnancyloss #miscarriage #anxiety #miscarriageawareness #yourstorymatters

Transformation Tuesday! .
Picture on the left I was pregnant with our sweet T. I was 35 weeks but measuring roughly 900 weeks. It was a hard pregnancy for me emotionally, and my calorie count was proof 😳 Even after having Tilly, I felt trapped in a body that was weighted down by pounds of emotions. I didn’t physically recognize who I was.
...
Picture on the right is current day. I have learned balance, I have educated myself and I have found a passion to live a healthy lifestyle for not just myself but also my family. Never once have I been starving or felt restricted. Do I want to workout at 3:30 every morning? Hell no, but do I ever regret it? Hell no! I can still go out to eat with friends, bake cookies with the girls and do all the things I want. The only difference, I’ve learned portion control, I’ve learned balance and most important I’ve retrained my brain to be proud of all of my hard work. ...
At home workouts are a joke they said....I should have never believed them! 🤦🏼‍♀️ I wish I would have started sooner. This life I’m living, this healthier/stronger/more confident version of myself...this is the woman I want my girls to look up to. This is the version of me I would be proud for them to take after. ...
I know it’s scary to think about getting started but put it this way ”I can’t” is code for: “I don’t want to” or “I don’t want to put forth the effort” 😳 You can! I promise! If you’re ready just drop an emoji or whatever, and I’ll be in touch! I’m ready to help you get started.💛

P R A Y E R the strongest weapon we could use! As a woman struggling with getting her prayer answered it seems like prayer doesn’t always work but then I find myself trying to find answers to my problem on google or treating google as if it were a Magic 8️⃣ Ball but it doesn’t work that and neither does prayer but at least I can find comfort in P R A Y E R!

We both made the lifestyle change. Having a partner who decides to get healthy with you is a blessing. The risk of divorce after WLS is very high. Our biggest fight to date was a screaming match about me having weightloss surgery. But now he will say "your surgery was one of the best things that happened for us" for a variety of reasons. He is my number one fan. His support during our miscarriage and taking care of me when I have felt so low make me know I am home.

So often we are told...
* move on
* everything happens for a reason
* they’re in a better place
* don’t be sad

Stinging words that know nothing of the immensity of grief that exists after losing a child. Your grief is not something that needs to be forgotten or hidden away. Your child deserves to be honoured and so does your grief. And so we must find our own path through loss and claim our own healing.

This is the work of grief.

*Note- Not a birth announcement * Thank you so much to @brendanrmarks of the @charlotteobserver for sharing our story and writing it in such a beautiful and powerful way. I never knew our journey to parenthood would have so many obstacles filled with the highest of the highs and the lowest of the lows. I do know God always has a plan and I believe with all my heart it’s to help other couples facing similar situations. From bringing awareness to infertility and IVF, helping couples financially thru our @bojfund and trying hard to work with insurance companies to get coverage I won’t stop until everyone has the chance to try to become parents. I can’t thank you all enough for your love and support thru our journey. Your kind messages, tips and openness have helped me tremendously throughout it! Baby Doinkey your Mommy, Daddy and big brother Brexton will always love you will all our hearts.

The many faces of grief 💙 Great job @snapshotsoflifeafterloss 💙Reposted from @snapshotsoflifeafterloss - Grievers, you are not alone. This is the trailer for Snapshots of Life After Loss which compiles stories of grief across time. Welcome to our @lunapeakcompany community. The years after loss range from 1 to 66 years to break down stereotypes about grief and “moving on.” These stories will show you that healing is not linear. This trailer shows just half of the participants who have joined our project - stay tuned for more videos, photos and stories of how others continue to overcome adversity in their day to day lives 🌿 - .

•A Target for the Enemy• When you make waves in the spiritual realm, the devil is going to come at you any way he can to get you to stop trusting God. Our waiting periods are the perfect time for that to happen because we feel so confused, isolated, frustrated and disappointed. ⁣
•⁣
The enemy wants you to believe the lies that you aren’t qualified to receive that job, you aren’t worthy of finding a spouse or aren’t good enough to be a parent. You fill in the blank. Believing those lies can take us away from the very purpose God has in store for us.⁣
•⁣
The song “Right Where You Want Me” by @sarahreeves reminds us that those moments of doubt just might be because you’re right where you’re supposed be. I recently found this to be true after recording an episode for the Living in the Wait podcast. Click the link in my bio to read all about it.

“I won’t say I’m feeling fine.
After what I’ve been through-I can’t lie.” 🖤

I’ve always had a tall wall around myself. I’d suffer in silence and put on that fake smile. I’ve let issues upon issues compound over time. I never gave myself the time and focus that is needed in order to tackle my mental health issues.
This past year has been great in so many ways. I married my best friend and have begun to build our new life together. But it’s also been one of the hardest for us.

I was okay dealing with all I had going on previously. I was used to it. But this year tragedy has trickled into the happiest part of my life which is my life with my husband and our little family. I am skeptical in even sharing it but I don’t want others to feel alone and helpless like I did. I had a miscarriage this fall. We were over the moon. I was thrilled to start our life and family together- my chance for a new start. So for that to have been taken away from me was earth shattering. It was so hard for me to see life beyond that. Depression took over. My anxiety went through the roof. I would sleep for hours. I lost all motivation. The combination of previous mental health struggles with this had me questioning “what was the point?” Then I loss my sweet fur baby Leo. I’ve been working hard to live with this new normal, however, it doesn’t have to be.
I don’t have to live with this pain or this sadness. I don’t have to be fearful of the future. I don’t have to hang on to those negative parts of my life. I refuse to let anxiety and depression be my new normal. I refuse to let anxiety and depression run my life. I am taking the needed time. I admitted I needed help. You can too. #endthestigma #yourenotalone #mentalhealthawareness #miscarriageawareness #miscarriage #anxiety #depression #selflove

This morning my body began to let go, so we treated ourselves to donuts and a little shopping. So grateful I was able to chat with DJ last night. So glad I’m not in the mess we left our home in. Just grateful my body is doing what it needs, thus hopefully avoiding surgery. The most bittersweet thing I’ve ever endured. #miscarriage feel free to comment tips for healing and care while going through this. I’m positive others will benefit as well 💔. Mabel’s morning nap didn’t happen and they both woke up way early, so we left @flora_henri with Nora sideways under my arm, um, very loud and unhappy 😅🙈 it’s okay though, we all had a good morning/afternoon anyways. ✨

Thankful for my fitness passion. It has been a huge stress relief and therapy of mine for a long time and it has been especially been helpful during this time of my life. Some days I feel great others I am filled with anger. Grief is a nasty game of feeling the weakest you’ve ever felt and morphing it into the strongest person you will have to become. \\ Windgate Lane //
