Last week, I hinted at me trying to experience all the emotions of motherhood and trying not to become numb to some. All of the feelings of Hazel’s pregnancy were coming back at me full force since it was her birth week. And one of the first feelings I had when I found out I was pregnant with her was guilt. I had JUST had a miscarriage. I got pregnant two weeks after I had a DNC. Of course I wanted to be pregnant again. I wanted a baby. But…I wanted the baby I had lost. I wanted…

Just writing the title of this post, tears stream down my cheeks. I remember the gut wrenching feeling of knowing that one of my children’s hearts had stopped beating who was supposed to be growing inside of me. It was Mother’s Day weekend 2016, and the ER doctor had just delivered us the news that even he didn’t want to say aloud. We lost our baby. He tried to give us hope by telling us maybe I was earlier along than I thought, but I knew there was no chance of that. We had just moved to…
