a new life.


I don’t know if I have the guts to publish this. I had no intention of talking about this until 12 or 13 weeks…but I am so overcome with emotion right now. 

Scared to say anything and have to deliver bad news again. 

Maybe if I get the courage I will. It’s been a bit of a whirlwind and I process best when I write.

I took a positive pregnancy test and instantly felt a rush of panic. (of course after the tears of gratitude and celebration of this new life). Now a mother of four, forever. 

One in heaven, two on earth…and one new one….. It has been days of tears and pleading God to protect my heart if something goes wrong again. It’s so early on, it seems like an eternity before I will just let myself breathe.

Just 4 months after the loss of Addison, still all of that so fresh in my mind.

Two days ago I went in for bloodwork and a sono and my sono was empty. Nothing at all. I came home sick to my stomach. I have absolutely the most precious, beautiful and loving doctor and nurses…. they assured me it might just be too early and not to get down.

I sat up late on the computer searching for answers. The entire time I clearly felt God speaking to me…

Casey, the answers aren’t there, they are with me.
Casey look to me.
And me alone.

Casey I can do miracles. 

Then this morning my bloodwork came back and they told me I needed to immediately come in for a sono. “We should see a baby by your numbers.”

I drove there alone. Turned off the music and just drove in silence. “I am going to be okay. no matter what happens, I can get through this.” Over and over again. Clenching my jaw, fighting back tears.

I sat in the waiting room. My legs were shaking. I text Chris, ” be prepared. It may not be good.”

She called my name. I walked down the long hall. Fighting back tears the whole way down. Before we started I looked at her and said “I am going to be okay….whatever happens I can handle this.” I had my hands covering my eyes…..I couldn’t look.

Casey, Casey open your eyes.



Literally I have never cried out with such thanks and gratitude. An answered prayer. Hope. A baby.

I am still early on. 
And obviously we have a long road to go. I will get bloodwork every 2 days and have a few more sonos. 

But for today, I am praising the One who blessed us with this life. 

And celebrating a new journey. Because no matter how small or young, little baby you are mine. And regardless of what happens, one day I will hold you. 

Heaven or earth, I will hold you.

    January 20th, 2012 at 2:06 am

    praying for you and your little one…I know exactly how you feel! I lost a little one and then a year later I got pregnant with another. At my first ultrasound, there was nothing to be seen (just like you) I started to panic, but the doctor said it could be early. I had to bloodwork, every 2 days for a week. Then I went back and saw my dear little one. There she was! I continued to do bloodwork every 2 days for another week and then once a week for the next month. Everything continued to be fine. And then exactly nine months later I gave birth to my little girl.

    I had a few minor complications during my pregnancy like, gestational diabetes and then I went into early labor at 7 months and I was on bed rest–but it was nothing knowning that my dear little was inside of me safe and sound and just growing away.

    My little girl is now 7 months and everyday I look at her and see God's beauty and promises. It may be scary at times, believe me, but when you first hear that cry, all the worry just melts away.

    sorry for the long novel. just wanted you to know that you are not alone. I've been there. I know exactly how you feel.

Having said that, I have tears of happiness for you. I pray that this wonderful news continues with a wonderful birth. You will be in my prayers every day. Your writing helped me when I was lowest, you have showed that even through the toughest times relying on God to do his work is all you have to do.

    First time commenter here, but just wanted to say CONGRATS! I lost my first baby (early… at 5 weeks…) and had so many of these same emotions the second time. It's a scary joy, don't you think? But joy all the same. Thank you, Jesus. My baby girl is 6 months now, and I am still missing my first child, but so grateful for both of them. And like you said, some day I will embrace that precious first in heaven.

    the way you talk about your babies warms my heart. I had a miscarriage (my only pregnancy) in October 2010 and it was hard for me to process that I lost my child. I don't think I had let myself connect fully with our baby because they had told me I lost it in the beginning when I hadn't. Two days after I found out I was really pregnant, I actually did lose it. Anyways, it took me a while to feel excited that I have a baby. In heaven. Waiting on me. Wow.

    I had this feeling you were going to announce something like this soon. I went through this fear too sweet one, it is so hard, waiting for the "all clear"… hang tight, pray… have you thought of taking baby aspirin just in case? I took baby aspirin and used a natural progesterone cream daily until 13 weeks (Restored Balance is the only one I would recommend)… baby aspirin and progesterone usually together address most issues that lead to miscarriage. Just something practical that might help. And pray! God is faithful.

    OH CASEY!!! this is such exciting news!! Sometimes I have a really hard time staying positive at other people's pregnancies because I myself have had a terrible time getting pregnant. We are almost 2 1/2 years of being open to it, and nothing. I'm not going to lie when I say I have an immediate gut reaction of jealousy. But I am truly so happy for you. I will pray for a wonderful pregnancy and healthy babe for you and chris <3

    Casey I am so happy for you! I am expecting our 2nd baby in July…and I have had more fear and worry over this one than I thought possible. I've never miscarried, but my heart has been aching with the "what if" ever since I found out…because I've seen the heart ache first hand, even through your beautiful blog.

    I'm thankful though for the fear because it leaves me feeling so raw at times that I can do nothing but show my fragile hopes to Jesus and trust that He knows my heart. That gives me such joy and peace…and the ability to just be thankful for whatever He gives. Be it a healthy beautiful baby in 6 months, or a heart breaking trial that will leave me longing more for heaven!

    Anyway…I'm so thankful for the openness with which you share your life, and I will be praying for those numbers to multiply each day!! Grow baby grow <3

    I couldn't be happier for you and your little family. I had the same scare early on in my pregnancy. Even though they said it was probably just too early, I too scoured the net for answers. And even though I am almost at the end, I feel like I am still holding my breath, feeling like I can't believe it completely until I hold him in my arms.
    I love your quote about holding this baby, either on earth or in heaven. I wish I had your faith.

    Casey I discovered your beautiful blog just a few days ago and have been re-reading it from the start.
    Your words and pictures are wonderful and your honesty is refreshing.

    I understand your fear well, I had a miscarridge a few years ago and truely understood what it felt to have your heart broken. Then about 17 months ago I woke up one day and knew I was pregnant again, I was terrified, I put it to the back of my mind pretended it was only my imagination and kept it from my family. I didn't have any of the early issues of tiredness or morning sickness, which mean't keeping it from my husband was easy but the lack of issues just convinced me something was destined to go wrong. At about 9 weeks my husbands figured it out but I felt so sad I couldn't give the the excitment of showing him a postive test and being happy about it.It was another 2 weeks before I had the courage to take a test,until I saw it written down I could fool myself it wasn't real. He was happy I was fearful. In the uk the maternity care is different its only at the end of the first trim you have a sono, I went to that appointment prepared for the worst, what I saw on the screen took my breath away and filled my heart with more hope and joy than I ever thought possible, and my little boy continues to do so everyday since.

    Be brave be strong be trusting and hopeful,everything comes good in the end.
    Congratulations to you and your beautifal family, my thoughts and prayers as well as all the other people whose hearts have been touched by you are with you.

    You are SO brave for posting about this. I know how hard it can be. But I am so glad that you did and that you are celebrating. After my first miscarriage, I too got pregnant again about 4 months later. But that time I didnt tell anyone (except the hubs of course)! But I was too afraid.
    It was too hard for me the first time to have to tell people about losing the baby every time someone who didnt know would ask how I was or how far along I was.

    It was so hard for me to the first time. I got scared. I didnt want anyone to know. I wanted to keep it a secret until I know we were "in the clear". I'm not sure why I thought that would be best. But looking back, I dont think it was. I did end up losing that baby too. And I just felt miserable. I hated the fact that I didnt celebrate his life! I hated that I didnt tell anyone about being pregnant so that I could share the joy I felt for my baby. And for a long time I felt like it was MY FAULT. Like I didnt appreciate the life growing inside me, so he was taken from me.

    I know now thats not true. But it was a struggle. SO I am HAPPY for you! I am glad to read about your excitement for this new life, even if you are scared. You are so brave. Congratulations.

I am an L&D nurse and although I have not experienced the deep pain you have, I have seen it firsthand and can understand you wanting to wait until after your first trimester….from reading your blog, it seems as if you couldnt be yourself unless you shared with your readers.

Now i'm 14 weeks and feeling better. However I have a long road as well. My uterus is completely upside down and severely tilted to the right side. I wish you the best of luck as I know we will both be mothers again in a few months! I'll be praying for you!

    I have tears in my eyes Casey. What wonderful news!!! What a blessing and answer to prayer. I have been there- waiting for a sonogram with a sick stomach and terrified of bad news. Praise our God who is faithful in the midst of our fears, and is always better than anything we imagine for ourselves.

    My husband always says to me- even if the worst were to happen, Jesus is the most important thing in our lives and He is better than anything else. We hold fast to His word and His truth and know that he holds our hearts and loves us with our fears more than we can imagine. He always has our good in mind & he has chosen to give this blessing *now* So we will enjoy it, and be thankful and praise him for his goodness that we don't deserve.

    prayers for a healthy pregnancy and little one. How wonderful!

I can say that i can to relate with the feelings of panic, fear, excitement, joy all meshed into one tidal wave of emotion! When we got the positive for our baby girl Eden, i was terrified that i would too lose this baby. We lost our son, Noah before we even knew i was pregnant. God worked so many miracles through Eden already, and she is only 12 weeks old! Praying for you, chris, and your littles!!

    Hi Casey,
    I am new to your blog. I actually found it at a time in my life when I really needed it. At the beginning of November I had a miscarriage at 9 weeks after trying for 1 1/2 years to get pregnant. I always thought it would be so easy to get pregnant and never thought I would have to deal with this heartache. We got pregnant before without even trying and had a very healthy pregancy and now have a very healthy 4 year old, miscarriage and infertility couldn't effect me. I was so wrong. I was very depressed and I found your blog through another blog I read and saw your stories. It inspired me to write about our story in our private blog as well as do something to honor the baby we lost, Alexander. I did a photoshoot with the blanket we bought for him and a teddy bear I had bought to tell my husband when I found out about him. I didn't want to do anything at first, than I read your story about honoring your baby by naming him and it felt so right. I wanted to thank you for posting it and being brave enough to post this as well. It truly gives me the hope I desperately need! My doctor keeps saying it will happen, it will happen and it is hard not to give up but this makes me so happy and renews my faith! Prayers for your rainbow baby!!
    – Jen

    You are so loved- there are so many comments here- it is amazing. I love when people share pregnancy early because a life is always worth celebrating.
    I know you are getting blood work done a lot, but I still wanted to suggest something to you. Ask your doctor about progesterone if it is not something they test. I had a miscarriage with my first but later had two happy healthy girls with progesterone supplementation. I am not saying you need this- of course not everyone does… it is just so easy to supplement that I try to tell everyone I know who has had a miscarriage. Not enough doctors know much about it so it isn't always looked into.

    Congratulations on this life! I know you are so excited and that is beautiful.

    Hi. I just recently found your blog and am in love with it!! I also wanted to say congratulations on the pregnancy… I have read through some older posts about your previous pregnancy and wanted to remind you (although I think you already know ) that God doesn't give anyone and I mean anyone more than they can handle…he knew you'd be strong enough to make it through last time and this time you will be stronger and hopefully God will bless you with a joyous and happy pregnancy and loving and healthy baby to be loved by all. May God give you all the strength to make it through this journey no matter the outcome and may he heal your hearts with a new love. πŸ™‚ Your family sounds so lovely and I know the new baby will be adored! Congrats again!!

    All praise and honor to Him who holds our lives in His hands.
    I am truly touched by this. I myself have a child in heaven but it was because of my sin-my decision not to own up to my actions at the age of 19. And it took years before I could really give it to God and ask for forgiveness. But on the day I did, I felt such an incredible weight lifted off me and can't begin to explain the newness of life that has completely come over me since then.
    Our God is good.
