Miscarriage affects 10-25% of all known pregnancies, and unfortunately I am now a part of that percentage. I wrote a letter to my lost baby as a start to dealing with the process post lost.

I wanted more than anything for this to be a happy post – unfortunately this is the hardest thing I’ve written in a long time – maybe ever. A couple of weeks ago I suffered a miscarriage and my first pregnancy ended in tears.

The Five Stages of Infertility and PCOS Grief

Ok, so there may not be exactly five stages of infertility and PCOS grief for everyone – and I’m still in the middle of processing my latest news – but I thought it was time for an update. And if I’m being honest, I know I’m beyond when I should have updated. But since my last post things have kind of taken a nosedive. Here are my stages so far and where I hope to head. I believe I’m in stage 4…

Friday Favorites Week 36

Happy Friday! This is my first official Friday Favorites post while living 100% in the city of Chicago. We closed on our house this past week and although we had a few tiny bumps in the road near the end, everything went fairly smoothly!
