33 Weeks Pregnant with Our Rainbow Baby and Remembering Our Angel
Enjoyed a spot of mirror shopping earlier so thought I’d take some bump pics (as you do) to mark turning 33 weeks pregnant today as every week feels like a milestone worth celebrating in my books.
The baby is now the size of a butternut squash and whilst I was tempted to brandish one in these shots (Waitrose is just next door) I thought I might just get thrown out of department store Daniel of Windsor.
I’m feeling so grateful to be firmly in the final sprint of pregnancy now as my Consultant would like my baby here in my 38th week and in all honesty, I’ll only fully relax once she’s here, after suffering a missed miscarriage (where you only know you’ve lost your baby during a scan) late last year. It’s #babylossawarenessweek and tonight at 7pm we lit a candle joining in with the wave of light happening across the country, to honour our own angel baby, and all the other babies who couldn’t stay but will live forever in their families’ hearts.
My missed miscarriage was utterly devastating, I was alone when I found out as it was during one of the lockdown periods, and the pain emotionally and physically (I required surgery) was indescribably heartbreaking.
I feel so grateful for this rainbow baby girl (they think the baby we lost was a girl too) and I’m thinking of, and holding those with empty arms and fertility struggles in my heart today and all days.
