Sorry I have been bad at posting over the holidays! This time always gets away from me, even more now with having a toddler. This time of year also gets away from me because it is as emotionally fulfilling as it is emotionally draining. Holidays always seem to drag out emotions you thought were maybe finally tucked away safely. For me, it is a time that I think about how happy I am to have my little rainbow baby, and at the same time, sad that I do not have the first baby I was pregnant with. It feels like by being sad about the lost pregnancy, I am not happy with the baby I have now. And, at the same time, feeling happy about my rainbow baby means no longer feeling sad about the loss of my first pregnancy. Grief is a weird thing. It comes up and can make you feel crazy. How can you feel happy about one thing, but also know that your happiness about that thing means you are no longer sad about the other, and vise versa? I think the happiness about your rainbow baby and the sadness about a miscarriage do not need to cancel each other out. By loving and celebrating your rainbow baby, you are not ignoring the baby that was lost to a miscarriage. You are allowed to feel excitement and happiness for your baby while also feeling sad about the miscarried baby. And, the opposite too. Wishing you could have met or have the first baby grow up does not mean you do not love and want to watch your rainbow baby grow and thrive. These feelings are not one or the other; either, or. They are valid each in themselves and you can have them all at the same time and not be ungrateful or ashamed for having any of them. Anyway, long post short, your feelings are your feelings. You can have one or many, and they all have a place.
One week is gone so quickly. It’s a beautiful place and the cold weather didn’t stop us to visit. I am sorry just for one thing, it’s maybe the capital of Thermal baths but it is not recommended during pregnancy , but next for sure.
