That Time I Disappeared for a Very Good Reason

Oh hey there, not-forgotten blog!

The truth is, I haven’t known what to write or how to write other things, because of a huge secret I can’t contain any longer.

Just watch this semi-short, 2 minute, extremely worthwhile video please, before I explode with excitement.

On Top Of the World from Vicki S on Vimeo.

We finally got it all right! Or at least it seems like this is “it”!

We are over the moon, elated, on top of the world even – and also still very much scared.  Pregnancy after loss has a very real and very dark side to it.  But I am trying my best to embrace the good tests, scans, and outlook and say “we did it!” instead of  ”what if…”  Obviously one is more exciting than the other.

Now that the school year is on its way out (can I get a “hey summertime!”???) and I’m also out of the pregnancy closet, you can bet that regular blogging will be back underway…mostly because I have a ton of drafted posts to share, and exciting stuff to talk about!

(I just remembered all my Pinterest baby boards can go from “private” to shared now! Woohoo!)

I’ll be back to update you on how I’ve been feeling, but in the meantime – watch the video again and smile because, we’ve been holding this in for awhile!

  • Alicia Celeste

    Oh my favorites, I am SO happy for you. This morning I watched your video, twice, and cried my eyes out. My heart and soul was just so overwhelmingly happy for you, I couldn’t keep it in.

    I know our two journeys through loss have been very different but I know and understand how dark and bleak a truly devastating loss can be. To know that you are walking in the light now, that you are OUT of darkness, is an incredible feeling. Your continued love and outreach in my darkest time has kept me going in ways I can never describe. I’m still on a dark-ish road, but this announcement was a ray of light for me too.

    I know you’re going to have moments of fear but I love you both SO much! I KNOW this will be okay.

    And when is the shower because I will go ahead and book my flight. No seriously. Like, can I start shopping now? I can, right? I mean, why wouldn’t I be able to start shopping for adorable baby clothing? And baby’s first designer handbag? Like anyone but me could pick that out? (okay I won’t if it’s a boy but I should be prepared….)

    I LOVE YOU!!!! :)
