Encouragement to a Viewer About My Miscarriage – From Almost a Year Ago

Hey Jewels and Gems!

I received an email this morning that really touched my heart. I decided to share my response to a viewer who shared her miscarriage story with me. She basically thanked me for sharing mines, and expressed her pain of going through this situation.

Feel free to share this with someone who needs it or will be encouraged by it. I am sharing this because I believe  it may help someone else:

Hello Lisa,

I am so glad that you sent your email over. I wish it were under different circumstances, but nonetheless it is nice to meet you!
I am so sorry for your loss. It is very difficult to deal with something like this. I don’t think people really understand the pain associated with a miscarriage until they have actually experienced it.
However, I will say that there are a few people in my life that totally got it, even though it hadn’t happened to them directly. I totally understand what you are going through, and although we may not understand the reason, God knows best.
I am so glad that you have a supportive husband beside you. That makes a world of a difference. Stay encouraged. Don’t jump too early into getting pregnant again. You want your body to heal first. The emotional part will take time, and you will come to peace with it. However, one baby does not replace the last, trust me.
When you are both ready, then try again, and whatever you do, do not blame yourself.
I lost my baby at week 6, and we had shared that I was pregnant with many people. I had even made numerous YouTube videos about it. We had share it with our families, our friends, and church members.
If you choose to hold off sharing this time, as you said you were considering, I understand. However, don’t feel like you have to do that.
Although, people may not understand the depth of your despair, and some individuals will have a way of making you feel like less than a woman, I personally think it is good to share. The reason is for times like these when you end up needing the people around you to give you support. How will they know what you are feeling unless they knew what you were going through?
This is a very personal decision, and one that through prayer I know you will make the best decision for you and your family. I will be praying for you.
I believe the second time around, this time, I still shared my pregnancy with my family at 4 weeks, but we didn’t start sharing it with anyone else until we had an ultrasound with a heartbeat at 7 weeks. We couldn’t be more happy. We were afraid of course. That fear is inevitable, but we also were so excited and we wanted to believe that God was able to pull this one through. Thus far, he has done just that, and we cannot wait to see our little baby. So many people go through this, and some unfortunately go through it numerous times.
The truth is, no matter how far along you are anything can happen. So, I put it in God’s hands. Women at my church prayed over me and my second pregnancy(this one), and that really put my mind at ease. However, there were times that I found myself checking and rechecking that everything was okay when I visited the ladies room. Then, there was a point where I decided, I was going to drive myself crazy unless I put my trust in God. It is a constant struggle. however,  I know he knows best, and then I tell myself why stress about something that you cannot control. Plus, it isn’t helping me or the baby.
I wish you and your family well. I know that God is going to bless you with everything that you need! Stay encouraged.
Lots of Love,
Chauntel

11 Week Pregnancy Bump Update

Video Still from 10 Week Youtube Video Update
Video Still from 10 Week Youtube Video Update

Here is my 11 week pregnancy update! I wanted to go ahead and get these going! I will update you weekly! Enjoy!

Size of baby: Lime, 1.6 inches long, with a 1:1 Body to Head Ratio, weighing about .25 ounces
How far along?  11 weeks!
Total weight gain/measurements: about 5 pounds
Maternity clothes: Not in this video, but I did make a purchase of my first maternity outfit last week.
Nursery: We are moving this week, no nursery yet.
Stretch marks: No, but I did notice the dark line this week going down the center of my tummy, starting at my navel. It is called the Linea Nigra.
Sleep: It has been a struggle to get comfortable, but I found that using a pillow beneath my tummy helps a lot. Also, running to the bathroom in the middle of the night has become a regular occurrence.
Best moment this week: Finally posting that I was pregnant on my YouTube channel. I have been wanting to share it for a while, but I haven’t felt well enough to film until now. Which, begs for another great moment starting to feel a little less nauseous all the time.
Miss anything? Not feeling guilty to drink a Coke or cup of Coffee. I know I can have it in moderation, but it still makes me feel bad every time.
Movement: Nope, not yet. I cannot feel the baby move. However, I can feel that its there. Especially when I try to twist my body. It always feels weird and uncomfortable.
Food cravings: Not this week. I have mostly had food aversions. Food scares me these days.
Anything making you queasy or sick? Just about everything that has a strong scent. The only thing that doesn’t bother me is sweets! Hahaha.
Gender: Too soon to know, but I’m leaning towards girl.
Labour signs: Nope, not yet.
Symptoms:  I am nauseous all day, although it is getting better. I have food aversions to most strong smelling foods. Any and every strong smell makes me sick. I am very tired all the time, and sore most of the time as well. My back aches a lot, all the way down to my tailbone ): I am also extremely emotional, and occasionally moody. However, I am doing my best to keep my emotions in check. The normal running to the restroom often. I get hungry very quickly, and try to eat small frequent meals throughout the day. My bump is also getting bigger making it harder for me fit into most of my clothes.
Belly button in or out? In, but it looks like it might be reverting slowly, haha.
Wedding rings on or off? On, but I did gain a little wait in my fingers, because one of my rings that couldn’t fit my ring finger on my right hand now fits!
Happy or moody most of the time: Mostly happy, but occasionally moody. We are moving so this causes a little added stress which leads to moody.
Looking forward to: Not feeling sick and all and having more energy.
