Baby Blog Unveiled

My "Secret Blog" is no longer a secret. I have opened it up so that anyone who wants to read about this pregnancy may do so. It's called, Are You Serious Lord?! I hope any questions you may have are answered, but if they aren't... feel free to ask.

This is the true reason I haven't been around lately. I've felt like such a fraud for not sharing this part of my life with you. It is a huge relief to get the weight of this secret off my shoulders. Not to mention the fact that I know this baby's health will be continually prayed for. I'm still iffy on whether or not I will post my updates of this pregnancy on Letting Go an Letting God or not. My hesitation either way is two fold.

First, I worry about my angel mom friends who are sensitive to the news of a new pregnancy. I know it always stung a little for me when a new pregnancy was announced... and I wasn't even trying to have another baby! It was just a reminder for me that I was too scared to try for something I so desperately wanted. I'm not here to hurt anyone, even if it is unintentional... This makes me want to separate everything so you can choose to read about this baby or not.

On the other, Letting Go and Letting God was created to document our family's journey as we learned to trust him when all hope seemed to be lost. It is about giving God our hopes, dreams, fears, and worries, while knowing he is fully capable of sustaining our family. This baby is already a part of our family. He will be Wyatt's baby sibling... I don't think it's right to separate one of my children from a blog that documents my entire family.

So, I'm leaning toward the latter... but I haven't completely made up my mind yet. I'd love to get your points of view. I'd like complete honesty. I want to know if reading about my pregnancy makes you upset or uncomfortable. Even if you need to post anonymously I'd appreciate the honesty. I feel as though I'm stuck in between a rock and a hard place.

If there is anything I have learned in my lifetime, it is that our plans are not always what God has in mind. Congratulations on the new baby! Wyatt will be a sweet big brother. I am praying for you and I also hope that Wyatt gets his birth certificate before his birthday. What a gift that would be!
Blessings, Sarita

I am beyond Happy for you!!!! Every child needs to be celebrated and prayed for. True it can be difficult to read about other mothers getting pregnant when you are still longing for another. I personally hance spent many years with this issue, and I have learned that my sadness for our situation shouldnt overshadow the joy and happiness God has blessed another family with.

I think that you should share all of your life in one place and not divide yourself. But you do what you are comfortable with.

I am SOOO happy that God have blessed you with another pregnancy and will begin praying for this child tonight. What a blessing to know that Wyatt has already met his little brother/sister in heaven glory!

I feel you should include your new baby in this blog. He is a part of our journey through loss and healing and letting God lead the way now. Its very important to be open and honest about how you fell about this new precious being. I got pregnant with Nikola right after Connor passed and though it wasn't planned and some people had negative things to say about it,, he is a part of my journey through loss, love and life in general. I could never exclude him.

I am happy for you! I understand your hesitation. But my daughter (who lived 3 days) taught me to live authentically. It is the best way to show the work of God and minister to others. Your honesty will be healing to others, even if it means a little sting. Haven't all of us who have lost our children learned that sometimes there is just pain in life, but we can all still rejoice and cry with each other?

Congratulations.

Congratulations! I am thrilled for you :)

Danielle, it is wonderful news but like you said it does sting to hear about pregnancy (period) when you've lost a baby. From my experience especially right after my loss it just plain hurt to hear about someone else's good news. But I have seen several women post about their rainbows on their original blog and they do with such grace and it gave me something to look forward to. Please know that I support whatever you decide to do! I love you and reading your blog and look forward to reading all about your rainbow!!!

Karen said...

Congratulations on your pregnancy, Danielle! I'm glad you're sharing your journey - all of it - and I think you've been very sensitive to mothers who are TTC and still reeling from babyloss. Praying for a healthy and happy delivery of this new babe for you. (((Hugs)))

hmmmm- I first thought a separate blog would be better- but then I agree with your comments about it all being part of the one journey of your family- the good and the bad bits as you trust God with this new baby/pregnancy.

So- in short- I say- stay where you are.
Yes- I think it would sting for some upon hearing the news, but I really don't think any of us who have been there could actually begrudge you ANY happiness at all after Wyatt's passing.

I have wondered and thought on the same thing- what I will do-if/when I fall pregnant again...I'm hoping it's soon!!!- and I have come to the conclusion I would keep the same blog- but maybe just change the name so it reflects the broader journey as a family.

Helpful???! :-)

I am going to read about it either way because I want to be there as you journey through this next season. Wishing peace about this decision xx

I know I'm perfectly fine with you staying right here!!

I'm so happy for you. I read through your new blog and my heart skipped a beat when I saw your due date...July 7th. That is the day our angel, Noah was born. This will help me (even more) to remember you and this precious little one growing inside you. I am praying!!!
