Confident Motherhood: Rainbows after the Storms

Author: Emma Schwnadt for Confident Motherhood

I was 18 years old when I had my first miscarriage and shortly after my loss, I was told that I most likely wouldn’t be able to have children.

It crushed me hard to hear those words especially at only 18 years old. I had my whole life head of me. Thinking I might have to go through life without something that I had always wanted my whole life was a hard pill to swallow.

Three years later I got pregnant with my first (full term pregnancy) baby, my son, and I was so excited but so scared that something was going to go wrong. Thankfully, he was healthy and perfect in every way.

Two years later I found out I was pregnant again.  My family was going through some horrible times and unfortunately, I had another miscarriage.  I had not told anyone because in my mind, I didn’t want to add my "problems" to them with all they had going on. I am not going to lie, it was very hard.

Storms don't last forever.  I am the mom of two beautiful rainbow babes. My son and my daughter who is 1.5 years old. I feel like God put me on this earth to be a mom.  Especially to be THEIR mama.  There is literally nothing else that I would rather be doing than watching my babes grow and learn. I feel like I thrive when I am with me kids.

If you are struggling to get pregnant, don't loose hope.  If you are battling anything alone, speak up to a friend.  That is the best advice I can give you based on my experience in motherhood.  Your village will be there for you in the good and the bad and it will make you a better mama when that time comes.  Don't give up.
