  • My first mother's day as a mama of 2 ❀

Not the way I would have ever dreamed, to be a mother of one on earth and one in heaven. But no matter where my babies are I will always be their mama. To birth 2 babies and only be able to take one home has shown me the hardest part of being a mother. It has also shown me a love so deep I never knew existed. Being a mama is the one thing I've always known I wanted to be when I grew up. The journey of mother hood is definitely a lot harder then I imagined. I hold my daughter in my arms, and my son in my heart. But I am still the person I've always wanted to be. I'm a mama to 2 beautiful babies and I am so proud they are mine ❀

Wishing all the mama's a sweet mother's day 🌷

  • My husband and I spent the entire day at the hospital. Waiting to be seen. Getting one last ultrasound done to make sure he was really dead. Hearing those words one more time "This pregnancy isnt viable, there is no heartbeat." I was told I had to be induced to deliver him. So not only was he dead and so was everything I dreamed of, but now I have to go through what I already imagine is going to be a traumatic birth. I was sent home that night and to come back the next morning when they aren't as full.

Our house felt colder. It felt like death had been sleeping over and we just noticed. We took a shower and got into our bed. Bawling my eyes out till they felt raw. Still carrying my baby who has no heartbeat. I still held him all night. My husband did too. Waking up felt like I was shot in the chest. It all came rushing back, everything that just happened came and I experienced it all over again. "There is no heartbeat, you will have to be induced, can you come back tomorrow? I'm so sorry for your loss." The next day came and we left for the hospital at 1pm. It was a bit rainy, little chilly and definitely was going to be one of the worst days of my life.

  • It's hard to capture the feelings I had in that moment over words. I was 17 weeks pregnant with my son. I had no signs of worry. No bleeding, no cramping, my morning sickness started to fade but at 17 weeks that's normal. There was no warning to be told he was dead. That means the night I tried to search for him on my home doppler he was gone. I hate myself thinking how did I not know? How did my body not tell me? I'm his mother and I carried him around for a full day with him dead and just didn't know. I feel guilty. I feel ashamed.

I held him every night. I hugged my belly. I talked to him. I talked to my husband about him EVERY night. For the first time I was pregnant I wasn't scared. I had 2 miscarriages before my daughter. And I carried her for 41 weeks with no issues. So I felt confident that I could carry another baby that long. I felt strong and able to. I was so happy. It was the first time I was "exited" about a pregnancy. It was the first time I was not nervous or worried. We even told family at 4 weeks!! That's how confident I felt. All my scans came back perfect. No signs of anything. It was like I was hit by a bus. A bus that took my son and left me standing.

  • On this day, I had my regular prenatal appointment. Then I was going to my sisters house to pick up bags of baby boy clothes she was getting rid of. And then I was going to the store to pick up cake mix for the next day.

I arrived at the office with my daughter. (I was supposed to drop her off at my sisters but I was almost an hour behind getting ready. I thought my app was at 11 but it turned out to be at 10 so I had no time to drop her off.) And we walked in the room, waiting for my dr. I should mention the night before this appointment I could not find his heartbeat on the home doppler I have. But seeing as I am the type of person to loose my mind over that, I tried to relax and take it easy. Baby's can hide all the time right? Anyways. I told my dr that and she told me not to worry, baby's hide all the time. Literally what I've been telling myself. So she goes ahead with the doppler and searches. 10 min goes by and no heartbeat. At this point I've gone to the bad place in my mind. I've assumed the worst. I am on the verge of tears. She still tells me he could be hiding, but to ease my mind she's sending me for an ultrasound across the room.

  • I then went for a non clinical ultrasound. They offer to find the sex of the baby, take pictures and videos, let you listen to the heart beat, take home stuffed bears with your baby's heartbeat in it. I was super exited the day of. We got ready and all went down. When the technician placed the probe on me, we all instantly saw it was a little boy!! Right away there was no doubt. We all saw him kicking, sucking his thumb, wiggling around, we heard his strong heartbeat and it filled my heart with an incredible amount of joy. Hard to put into words. We were going to have our little boy. πŸ’™

We had already picked his name out. Benjamin James Griffin. We have always loved that name, and we just felt like he has always been apart of our family. πŸ’™ We all couldn't wait to meet him.

  • My husband and I decided to try again for another baby, after our daughter was 15 months. Like I said we have always wanted children and we also hoped they would be close in age. On a friday in September (maybe the 20th?) I had done groceries all day. It was long and tiring, I had brought our daughter with me and I remember being so worn out. I was so tired and I I specifically said on my way home in my head..that nothing is going to make this day better. I'm so tired, I feel weak, my daughter has been crying all day, I forgot half the things I need from the store..hubby wont be home till 10pm from work, I'll have to bring the grocerys in and put them away myself, make dinner, clean up, still do laundry..I was just over that day... I knew we were trying, but it didn't occur to me I could be tired because I was pregnant! I had stopped putting groceries away when I saw the test I bought and decided to test then. 2 in the afternoon, not FMU just whatver right? I couldn't believe there were 2 lines. I was pregnant for the 3rd time. I instantly turned my day around. I didn't care if my daughter was crying. I didn't care about the grocerys. I was pregnant with my next baby. Once again I was so happy. ❀

This was the first test I took. The line was so light but it still meant HCG was being detected. It was a moment I'll never forget. ❀

  • TTC again after 2 months of loosing pregnancy is harder then you think. But this time I didn't let it consume me. I tried to not think about it the whole time or obsess over it. But it can be hard when you see a pregnancy announcement, hear about family being pregnant and wishing you were apart of that group. Wishing you could be pregnant and carrying a healthy child.  But instead your grieving over a pregnancy that never made it far.

We went on our honey moon and that's when I got pregnant for the 3rd time. I waited a little longer to test. I was anxious but decided to test the night before I should have. September 17th 8pm I took a test and it was DARK. Both lines were almost the same strength. I was shaking I was scared. But deep down I did feel some sort of comfort.

  • I spent the day trying to not worry. To try and believe it's all in my head. How common are miscarriages? Why at 23 did I have my first one and possibly second one? I went to take a shower after dinner, used the washroom first and that's when I saw blood. Blood in the tissue. I froze and started to cry. I could not believe what I'm seeing. I am miscarrying again. The second pregnancy in my life I'm loosing. I went to my husband and cried again. Cried for everything. I felt like a failure. Why can't I grow a baby? Is there something wrong with me? I just couldn't believe it was happening again... The following day I bled. It started off light then got very heavy and had cramps all in my back again. It just takes a piece of soul out of you when you get pregnant and that pregnancy ends up dying. πŸ’”

  • TTC again with the loss of a pregnancy from the previous month is hard. We did managed to try again my next cycle in August of 2017. Scared, the day I was able to test I took 2. We were blessed again with another 2 lines. Instantly I felt sick. I felt sick in my stomach thinking what if this happens again. What if I am pregnant and I loose another one. I did some googling and started tracking the darkness of the pregnancy line on my test. Crazy maybe but I was scared. Aug 11, the line was faint but there. Aug 12 definitely more darker. So that means my HCG is increasing right? The more darker the line the more HCG is present. This pregnancy was not as "joyful" as my first. I was filled with anxiety and stress. I was scared of me loosing another pregnancy again. It was more of me being worried then being exited as I should be. Not only did we loose our first pregnancy, but we lost the joy that came with the following ones. Yes this was SO exiting thinking I'm pregnant again! But then fear was lingering and whispering to not get too exited. πŸ’”

  • At around 6 weeks pregnant I started getting cramps. I just finished work and came home, must have been around 11pm. My husband and I were watching a movie in our basement when I started to get really uncomfortable. It was mostly in my lower back. But we continued to watch our movie and eventually fell asleep. At around 8 in the morning I woke up with cramps, still from last night. I went to the washroom and there was blood. There was a lot of it. My heart breaking I started to cry. What's going on? Why am I bleeding? This isn't normal. I called for my husband and we went to the ER. I was so afraid of what was going on & I was in a lot of pain at this point. We went, they took my blood, they did an ultrasound and an internal ultrasound. After waiting for what felt like days, the Dr. came in and told us there is no viable pregnancy. What happened was an early miscarriage or a chemical pregnancy. He explained I was so early that I was able to pass everything naturally and to take it easy the next few days. Heartbroken. Devastated. We left the hospital. As soon as I left the doors, tears just continued to fall from my eyes. It felt like it was hard to breathe. I felt like my heart was torn out of me. This life we created already didn't make it. We had just told family, everyone was so excited for us. But most of all we were so excited & in an instant it was all over. πŸ’”

  • My first pregnancy tests. July 2017. My husband and I just got married. We have always known from the start we wanted to have children right away.

It was finally the day I was able to test. I bought 1 pack of First Response tests. 1 line test and 1 digital. I remember it so clearly. I was in my basement bathroom, I peed in a cup in the afternoon and stuck the end in. I remember shaking and being so nervous. After about 3 min of staring at it, I notices 2 lines. No way! The 2nd line was faint tho. What does that mean? I googled for about 10 min. A light line just means there are low levels of HCG but there is STILL HCG being detected! HCG is the pregnancy hormone. I ran out and showed my husband who was on his computer. Both of us thinking we are going to be parents!! ❀ thinking this is it! How will we tell family? What do I need to avoid? What is safe during pregnancy? It was a rollercoaster of emotions. I remember going to bed that night with such an intense feeling of love. A feeling almost hard to describe. A life we created was growing inside of me. It was one of the happiest times of my life. ❀

  • Hi. I am 1 in 4 and 1 in 8.

I have experienced infertility and know the frustration, pain and emptiness of wanting a baby in your arms.

I have experienced pregnancy loss and know the anger, confusion, and resentment of feeling like your body failed.

I understand the seering, full body pain, that comes from every pregnancy announcement. I know what it's like to feel happy for someone you know or love but absolutely gutted for yourself. I know the anger when you find out something so big in your life may be a laughing matter to another.

If you are waiting for your baby, recovering from a loss, or anywhere in between, I'm holding space for you today.πŸ’› If you are considering joking or faking a pregnancy announcement today, I encourage you to think hard about those in your life who might be hurt by that. Maybe you don't have a face to associate with that, but now you know my story. There are many other things you can joke and laugh about, if you want to play an April Fools prank, some frozen cereal or saran wrap on a toilet instead. πŸ“Έ: @brandiamabisca

  • She has helped me more then she will ever know. Its been 2 months since we said goodbye to our son. I'm still learning how to live with the grief. Some days I feel okay, I try to take comfort in believing I will see him again. Some days not so much. I should be 26 weeks pregnant. Still taking one day at a time. Mama loves you Ben ❀

  • Thank you to everyone who has reached out to us during this incredibly difficult time in our lives, we appreciate it greatly.

Pregnancy loss can make you feel very lonely. The world keeps moving on, but yours just stopped. No one knows how to talk to you or what to say. Everyday I've watched everyone around me, family, friends, and even strangers carry on with their lives, while I cry and struggle everyday. Benjamin was our third baby we have lost in pregnancy. It's absolutely the most heart crushing thing to go through. It's taken me a few weeks to even comprehend he's gone. After our first 2 babies we lost before Grace, I never thought it would happen again. My instincts as a mother are to protect, heal, nourish, love, and give everything for my children. To not be able to act on any of those feelings feels unnatural. Nothing can prepare you for the loss of your baby. The days don't get easier, you just get used to living with your broken heart. It becomes who you are, and you become someone different.

  • Benjamin James Griffin | December 15th 7:10am

I carried you for every second of your life, and I will love you for every second of mine. I'm so proud to be your mommy and to call you my son. The day I met you was the hardest, I also had to say goodbye. I wish I could hold you again, kiss all your toes and tell you how perfect you are. I love you with all my heart baby boy, and I will miss you every single day of my life. May you rest in peace my sweet Benjamin.

  • The words from any mothers nightmare became my reality on Friday December 13th. "There is no heartbeat, I'm sorry." Nothing can describe the pain and emotions I felt in that moment. The next few days I was sent to the hospital to deliver him. Given medication to start labour, waited 9 hours for contractions to begin, then 9 more hours till it was time to push. My bump had disappeared the moment he left. Not only was my heart empty, but now my belly was. The nurse handed him to me and it didn't feel real. I held his hands, kissed him over and over. I told him a hundred times how much I love him, how perfect he was, how I wish I could have kept him safe. He was so precious to hold. When we said goodbye, I took his hands and crossed them over each other on his chest and kissed him for the last time. Saying goodbye to my son is a pain I will never heal from and that I'll carry for the rest of my life. We went home hours later, and just like that we had to figure out how to live without him. The onesies I bought for him will never be worn. The dreams, the future of seeing him with Grace will never happen. When you're pregnant with your baby you think everything about them. I always thought he would have darker hair like his daddy. But that's something we will never find out. I always imagined him and Grace playing together in their room, taking a bath together, running around the house chasing each other. But that's something I will never actually see. My heart will forever have a hole that will never be filled. Another baby will not fix my broken heart over my sons passing. Everyday of my life is hard and I'm not sure when I will be just ok again. Maybe one day far away from today, I'll wake up and not cry, maybe one day I'll look at his photos and smile. My heart is broken and I'm trying to learn how to live with the pieces.

  • I've become obsessed with trying to figure out who I am against situations that make me uncomfortable and not settled...ensuring that the pull of stagnation doesn't allow me to flip into that bubble of comfortable conditioning !
::
My eyes hurt, But I can see the bigger picture.
I have dark circles, but my vision is brighter.
My ears are deaf, but I have leaned to hear silence. 
My nose is stuffy, but I can't smell fear. 
My tongue talks less, because I have tasted life. 
My lips don't part, because I have learnt to love myself.
My teeth are lost, but I have the most beautiful smile. 
My lungs have collapsed, but I had breathtaking moments. 
My stomach is upset, but I can digest life. 
My knees crackle, but I have learned to kneel. 
My feet are sore, but I know how to step into others shoes. 
My muscles are stiff, But I have gained more strength,
My bones are brittle, but I feel much lighter. 
My senses are lost, but I have felt all emotions. 
My skin is cracked, but I have healed the broken.
My failures left a void, but I'm filled with humility.
My heart beats delicately, but I have learned to loved harder. 
My spine is hunched, but I'm closer to mother earth. 
My hair are grey, but my experiences are psychedelic. 
My brain is withering, but I remember more. 
More of who I am, More of what I am. 
More of where I come from, More of where I must go. 
There is so much pain here, the body screamed. 
There is so much to gain here, the soul whispered. πŸ’­πŸ’›

  • β„±π“π’Άπ“ˆπ’½ 𝒷𝒢𝒸𝓀 to all the times we had the pleasure to announce that we were welcoming a new precious baby to this world.

Did you do something special to announce your pregnancies? Share it in the comments! I want to see!

Isn’t it fun seeing the progression of how we announced each pregnancy? You know what’s sad though, as I’m looking through these photos, I’m reminded how I 𝓃𝑒𝓋𝑒𝓇 announced our pregnancies until 12 weeks and we π“€π“ƒπ‘’π“Œ that everything was going to be OK. 
Is that just me? 
A lot of you probably don’t know, but before Jaxson, Jeremy & I we’re doing a long distance relationship. He was in Orlando working as a firefighter and I was in Davie working on my nursing degree. And, we actually got pregnant in nursing school, and y’all, 11 years ago it wasn’t so much OK to get pregnant while in school, not married ext ext. I was devastated that I was pregnant and that I would have to go through nursing school pregnant, long distance and all that. It was π“ƒπ‘œπ“‰ how I imagined things to be. So- I didn’t tell anyone that I was pregnant until around 14 weeks. I let 𝒻𝑒𝒢𝓇 hold me back from the joy and excitement pregnancy should bring! And then, guess what? The π“Šπ“ƒπ“‰π’½π’Ύπ“ƒπ“€π’Άπ’·π“π‘’ happened and I found out there was no longer a heartbeat and I wouldn’t be welcoming a precious baby into this world. Guys- this was literally days after I just accepted this pregnancy, told the world, and I was π“ˆπ‘œ excited! Talk about devastating. I had so many regrets of what I did and didn’t do. But through it all- I see Gods goodness. I always said that precious baby was the baby girl I never had.

𝒰𝓃𝓉𝒾𝓁 we said we were done having kids because we had just gotten our 𝓂𝒾𝓇𝒢𝒸𝓁𝑒 of Jaxson being healed and seizure free and we were counting our blessings of 3 healthy kids.... so we took off and traveled the world, and sold everything, literally our house, our car, all of our stuff! 
And fast forward, a month into traveling, we found out we were pregnant, whattttttt! This was π“ƒπ‘œπ“‰ part of the plan! I remember crying again. Thinking we’re suppose to be traveling the world, drinking all the wine, eating all the raw food. (See comments for more!)

  • Hi. I am 1 in 4 and 1 in 8.

I have experienced infertility and know the frustration, pain and emptiness of wanting a baby in your arms.

I have experienced pregnancy loss and know the anger, confusion, and resentment of feeling like your body failed.

I understand the seering, full body pain, that comes from every pregnancy announcement. I know what it's like to feel happy for someone you know or love but absolutely gutted for yourself. I know the anger when you find out something so big in your life may be a laughing matter to another.

If you are waiting for your baby, recovering from a loss, or anywhere in between, I'm holding space for you today.πŸ’› If you are considering joking or faking a pregnancy announcement today, I encourage you to think hard about those in your life who might be hurt by that. Maybe you don't have a face to associate with that, but now you know my story. There are many other things you can joke and laugh about, if you want to play an April Fools prank, some frozen cereal or saran wrap on a toilet instead. πŸ“Έ: @brandiamabisca

  • This week I am highlighting @ericammcafee check out why she started her movement .
.
.
I started Sisters in Loss @SistersinLoss to help black women heal from birth trauma, loss, and infertility and thrive in their new normal.  I had a very long commute to work over 2 hours both ways, and I listened to podcasts to pass the time. I began listening to many fertility and loss podcasts, but they were not telling my story.  After experiencing the loss of my son Brandon Jr. at 39 weeks, daughter Brielle at 18 weeks, and having a traumatic near death birth experience with my son Maxwell.  I saw there wasn't a podcast dedicated to black women sharing our stories of infant loss and infertility, and I knew I could fill that void.  At that time the CDC reported that black women were experiencing pregnancy related deaths and infant deaths at a rate of 3-4 times than our white counterparts.  Now that rate has increased with new reports to 4-5 times more likely to die. .
.

I knew the Sisters in Loss podcast could help share anecdotal evidence supporting those numbers and also provide healing to those sharing their stories, and healing for the listener.  I started the Sisters in Loss podcast with a hope and a prayer that people would listen. We have amassed over 100,000 listeners since the podcast began in August 2017.  I then created the Sisters in Loss online community to discuss podcast episodes and for us to chat online.  It has turned into more than just a community it is truly a sisterhood.  A sisterhood we did not want to be apart of, but one that we can not live without.  Our babies in heaven connected us, and it feels like we have known each other forever.
.
Many of the ladies in the Sisters in Loss Community have formed a tight bond and friendship.  We even have collaborated to form an Angel Sister Alliance and host a Pregnancy and Infant Loss & Infertility Conference @pailconference on April 4, 2020 at Goucher College in Baltimore, Maryland. Loss and Infertility is apart of the Birthing Justice, Reproductive Justice, and Social Justice agenda.  We have to continue to share our stories and not remain in silence, live in shame, or stay secretive about our experiences

A sisterhood we did not want to be apart of, but one that we can not live without. Our babies in heaven connected us, and it feels like we have known each other forever.
    .
    Many of the ladies in the Sisters in Loss Community have formed a tight bond and friendship. We even have collaborated to form an Angel Sister Alliance and host a Pregnancy and Infant Loss & Infertility Conference @pailconference on April 4, 2020 at Goucher College in Baltimore, Maryland. Loss and Infertility is apart of the Birthing Justice, Reproductive Justice, and Social Justice agenda. We have to continue to share our stories and not remain in silence, live in shame, or stay secretive about our experiences

When I have said my evening prayers,
And all my clothes are on my chair,
And mommy switch’s off the light 
I’ll still be 1 years old tonight!

But from the very break of day,
Before the children rise and play,
Before the darkness turns to gold 
Tomorrow, I’ll be 2 YEARS OLD! .
