Hey guys, hope you had an 'uneventful' week.
Today's Two Cent Topic is one that has been running through a lot of the BLM's minds. The very first questions I got here was all based on TTC (Trying to conceive) and Rainbow Babies (babies born after a loss).
So I am asking for YOUR Two Cents today. After losing your child how quickly did you decide you were ready to TTC/Adopt? What has been the reaction of your Husband/boyfriend? Has your family embraced this as well? How quickly did you act on them? What would your advice be to those that are now getting onto this path? What should or shouldn't they expect from a Rainbow?
I remember when hearing the awful words "there is no heart beat" I said I would NEVER do this again. For weeks the thought of going through this just made me sick to my stomach. The fear, the anxiety ALL of it just made me want to NEVER even touch my husband. BUT, that all changed a few months ago. I started to realize how much my arms felt empty, how badly I wanted to be a mother to Alyssa and a mother to a living child. I know how badly my husband wants to TTC again and for that we have started to speak more openly about the future. The fear for me is still there. The worries I believe are STILL there even while you are pregnant, and still after you take home the rainbow (God willing). What can we do? In order to get the prize we have to risk our hearts right?
Lots of BLMs believe that getting that rainbow can ease the pain, and shortly after realize that it does not ease the pain, but instead teach you to love a different child.
SO here we go, I can't wait to hear all the responses....Gimme YOUR Two Cents today!!!
