After struggling with irregular cycles for 6 months, we were shocked when we saw our first positive pregnancy test. It felt like a miracle, until we went into the doctor's office for our ultrasound.
"I'm so sorry...I'm not seeing a heartbeat."
Five months later, we had another positive pregnancy test. "THIS is the one!" we thought. A few weeks later, our second angel was, again, taken from us too soon.
When we started our pregnancy journey in February 2019, I never imagined this would be our story.
For over a year, I've allowed myself to feel restricted by my business. Any time I even dreamed about branching out and talking more about motherhood, I couldn't help but think, "This is an EDITING business, not a motherhood blog...stay in your own lane, Emily..." But as this journey of ours continues, I cannot ignore my desire to discuss more than just editing on this platform.
My business was founded on the idea of helping photographers take back their lives by providing them with fast, reliable editing services. It was never meant to become a lifestyle blog in any way, but as the years have passed, I've evolved as a person. My interests and passions have changed, which is why I've decided it's finally time that my business is going to evolve with me.
This branch of my website is just getting started, but I hope you'll check back regularly to check out all of the content I'll be releasing regarding motherhood, miscarriage, and infertility. I'll also be updating you on our journey as we continue to build our family.
This is why I want to break the silence about miscarriage and infertility.
The truth is that 1 in 4 pregnancies end in miscarriage, and 1 out of 8 couples struggle with infertility. Despite the millions of people who are impacted by pregnancy loss and infertility, you still feel incredibly alone.
Our pregnancy journey has been one of the greatest challenges of my life, which is why it's been laid on my heart to share it with you.
I'll never forget the day she was born. Labor was hard, recovery was harder, but bringing her home was such a blessing. Being her mom is one of the greatest gifts of my life, but everyday brings new challenges I never realized I'd face.
There are so many days you feel like you're absolutely failing. It's a LOT of noisy kid songs and shows on repeat. It's giving up a lot of yourself for your children. It's hard...really hard.
I wouldn't change it for the world. I know that one day, my daughter is going to change the world. She is kind, caring, sweet, smart, and I couldn't ask for more.
