The best part for me with being pregnant after loss is having a new understanding of aches and pains. It is easier to endure them when there is hope of becoming the mother of a baby I have dreamed of for years. Also, watching Marsi move around like crazy this morning (as she does every morning) is the highlight of my day.

For me, the best part of being pregnant after a loss is just knowing how lucky I am to experience the tiniest parts of being pregnant- it's awesome that my belly button popping or a tiny kick from my baby girl or a pregnancy waddle can make me feel like the luckiest person on the planet

I would say the best thing about pregnancy AND motherhood are the same for me. I'm just so aware of how much of a miracle every moment is, so it's easier to deal with the not-so pleasant stuff, but it's so amazing that everyone is safe and healthy.

I think the best part for me is I have enjoyed each moment and milestone more. I haven't taken my pregnancy for granted. I hope that it continues as a mom to an infant again. I am enjoying my older children more as well.

I think like Brittanie said, just feeling the miraculousness of the small moments, which makes the not-fun moments easier. I love waking up in the morning and seeing her angelic little face next to me, I just feel so lucky.

The best part part of having your rainbow after a loss is just that feeling you have when they are in your arms and finally home. The first few weeks I swear was just a dream.


I am still trying to find the best part of pregnancy.... I get to freaked out and nervous. But I did love feeling DD move and hicup and can not wait to feel that again.

The best part for me about being pregnant after my loss has been my positive outlook on life. My Facebook statuses were negative and whiney, complain, complain, complain. Losing our baby was one of the worst experiences we have ever been through and no matter how bad or frustrating a situation is, nothing seems so bad anymore and we manage to face nearly everything with positivity and good spirit.

For those who have delivered your rainbow babies what is the best part of being a mom after loss? DS #1 is a rainbow baby after loss and I love watching everything about him. Every day when he learns something new. Every new word he tries to say.

For those pregnant what is the best part of being pregnant after a loss? (everyone can answer this one ) With this baby, I have not felt connected until today actually. It's been almost 8 weeks since my last miscarry date and I am just now starting to connect. DS is starting to connect. I have a baby bump. I can feel the baby move and roll. And I am finally accepting it. It's a great feeling.

I don't know what the best part is. I know I won't take as many things for granted, but I think I also have a shield up right now, so until my mind drops that shield, it's impossible to be 100% engaged.

Similar to Brittanie's...it's the smallest moments that are the most amazing, and sometimes you just feel so awed that this is your child. The loss definitely helped refocus me on what my priorities are...there's no chore or work email more important than reading Savannah a book (for the 100x time that night ) or tickling her...the list goes on and on...you cherish every second more I think.

For those who have delivered your rainbow babies what is the best part of being a mom after loss? I would have to say having him here safe and sound after so much heartache... The miracle of life is such a God given blessing...

For those pregnant what is the best part of being pregnant after a loss? (everyone can answer this one ) It was the same I treasured every moment even all the uncomfortable stuff..

I'm still in the scared out of my mind part right now...I'm trying really hard not to be attached at all, but it is impossible, cause I love this baby so much already...

once I get past the NT Scan, then I might start breathing again...

This is so so true. I love simply holding her and I feel infinitely blessed to have her in my life. Although... let me tell you, sleep deprivation sucks.

I have to agree, reaching each milestone brings a totally new meaning. Feeling this little one wiggle and squirm is the most reassuring feeling I have ever felt. In my past pregnancies I got annoyed with the movement, I just didn't like it. I suppose it sort of creeped me out. This time? No WAY. This baby is so much more active and since Colm was small for his gestational age he was also weak. The strength of this baby is just 'right'.
