I just realised that its been 6 months yesterday since we lost our Joshua at 34 weeks (2 weeks away from my scheduled c section). It feels like a lifetime ago! It's so hard to believe that I should be the mother of a 6 month old, it all feels so surreal.

We're doing ok about it all. I feel like we've moved on. 5 months ago, I thought this grief would never pass. I felt so empty inside, like my happiness had been ripped out of me. It was hard to imagine life ever going back to normal, but it's finally getting there. It probably helps that I had open heart surgery 2 months ago - going through something like that helps put everything into perspective, and I know that with my heart fixed I will be around a long time for my children.

We'll start trying again in 6 months or so probably, and it will be a hard, emotionally draining pregnancy, but I feel like I'm ready for it.

Yesterday was 7 months for us. It's always a hard day on the 4th. I hate that day. But I also remember wondering if I'd ever breathe without hurting again and I do now. I hurt... but not with every breath.

Thank you to AlexAiden Mommy for my beautiful siggie!
