A loss

Sorry I have been away for such a time...things were insane here...and hard. Just to give a brief update so none of you are in the dark I will tell you of the past week's events

I found out I was pregnant and due (with my second baby) on March 25th. I was thrilled, so excited!! We went to stay with family in Ohio and while I was there I caught some infection from my nephew. I was sick the whole week following...real high fever, horrible throat issues, ect. I did not want to go to the doctor because I figured what could they really prescribe with me one breastfeeding and two being pregnant. At the end of that week I had a miscarriage, I was a day short of being 7 weeks along. It was heartbreaking. I read later that infections can cause miscarriages....which made it even harder. I am doing much better-because the Lord is always good and faithful. When I want to wallow in sadness the Lord always brings my beautiful little Isabelle into sight and reminds me of just how blessed we are by her. He has given me the most wonderful daughter-and who could be sad with her around. The only times I get really sad are when I am alone. (she and Nate are asleep at night or during a nap) Nate is such a great husband-he knows all I need and just what to say and when to let me cry. I love him. Soooooo...that is why I have not been posting for awhile. But I am back now:) Thanks loves for being faithful readers-it makes posting so much more fun!!
High Point: Isabelle...her joy, her smiles, her needing me!
Low Point: The baby that is no longer.

Oh Abs! My heart just hurts for you. Wish I was there to cry with you over the loss. But you are correct, God is faithful and will bless you with another little one, I am sure. I love you so much.

Abby, I am so sorry. I honestly have little tears streaming down my face for you. My heart hurts for you. You will certainly be in my prayers and very close to my heart. I'm so glad you married such a wonderful man who is taking good care of you and that you have little Isabelle to bring you comfort.
