There's been a lot of talk about rainbow babies in social media recently. I saw it coming, but I wasn't able to fully protect my heart. And it hurts today. I didn't get through the day very well. Praying for strength for tomorrow.

This is all I have left to remember the twins.. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You may all look at this as an announcement. In a way, it is. It’s announcing the loss of these two babies. If the crazy food cravings didn’t tip you off, well now you all know. I was 7 weeks pregnant and found out today that we lost one twin and the other will not continue to survive many days, if not hours longer.. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I am absolutely broken and sad beyond words can describe but I wanted to share this in hopes that it can bring miscarriage to light and to remind everyone how common it is. I am also sharing this in hope to get the love and support I feel I deserve through this difficult time.. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
For now, good bye my angels. God had better plans for you both. Umma loves you so much 👼🏻👼🏻 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If you had a tough day, then let these cute baby smiles brighten you up.✨💕
I thought 2 years was enough. Enough to get over the grief. I purposely didn't share my "memories" thinking it was easier and really, who cared?
Then tonight I was scrambling, looking for that almost 9 week ultrasound I had shared with the world. I couldn't find it and started crying.
But I realized I had this. ❤

❓WHY I KEEP TREATS IN MY DIET.👇🏻
Because by NOT doing that when I first started in Fitness I created an #eatingdisorder
Let me tell you something you already know YET might try to hide like I did.🤭
I wanted my journey to be hard.
Not because I wanted to “suffer” but because I wanted to OVERCOME!
What I didn’t realize was that I didn’t have to “overcome” giving up foods that I loved to prove my dedication to my goals!
What I DID have to overcome was the idea of PERFECTION and how it made me chase something (unrealistic expectations), resulting in unhappiness. I became the following: -Unhappy
-A binge eater
In Short.....I gave myself unnecessary suffering for NO freakin reason.
•I do NOT cut out sugar. I monitor it.
•I find healthier options like Power Crunch Bars, Protein Rice Krispy Treats, Protein Popcorn,🍿Etc!
•I KNOW my calorie range and when I feel an “emotional day” coming on I swap out my Quinoa for my Protein 🍿and get the same amount of #carbs
, some protein but most important....SOME SELF CARE!🙌🏻
My Advice?? Think 💭 again about saying NO to the foods you love. Should you eat an entire tub of Ice Cream?? No! I did though after my #miscarriage
and I still love myself.❤️❤️
Now I try to eat Halo Top Ice Cream (a better version) and it fits my goals.
Don’t make the mistakes I have made. Ask yourself, “What do I want my nutrition to look like?”
Me? I wanted fruit,🍒meat,🥩healthy foods🥦AND some freakin treats to;) Which is why I am not a #Keto
girl. I am not a #vegetarian
AND I am not sugar free;)
ALL OF WHICH I HAVE TRIED TO BE!
Feels good to feel balanced.

There are a few more out there but these are the bulk of them.
Abortifacients are plants that cause miscarriages and must be avoided in pregnant women or women attempting to become pregnant.
There are many herbs that pregnant or looking to become pregnant women should be careful with. Also ask your HCP, (midwife doctor) about an herb during you pregnancy. Also avoid Pennyroyal, and be cautious with Cloves. They can also kill parasite eggs. Clove oil should not be used. Keep in mind that most of these need to be mixed in order to contribute to a miscarriage.
As you guys may know, papaya seeds can kill the eggs of parasites which is why it's usually added to a lot of parasite cleansing formulations. In most countries they ADVISE women not to eat papaya at ALL to claim the safety of the mother and baby. Avoid all if can especially the unripe ones
Same with🍍 pineapples(pineapples can soften the cervix and lead to early labor and complications) pineapples should be eaten in moderation not day after day.
Also with Hibiscus, it's nice smelling and good but YOU SHOULD NOT use Hibiscus regularly, it lowers your blood pressure. It's great for people with high blood pressure issues. Hibiscus will send you into Hypotension as it is not fatal, problems can occur when the blood pressure is low for extended periods of time. Hibiscus should not be given to kids.
Always remember. "Herbs are Medicine"

This is the moment so always dread, the long wait. It's almost cruel how after you try everything within the small window you have. You hope that it finally worked but you're never sure. You can only hope.
Time to truly surrender. #faith
How do I cure my blues? I kick my own ass.
After a month of praying hoping and loosing I have been given the go ahead for exercise again. So where am I? Back to my soulmate work outs. #80dayobsession

7 years ago, I lost my first child. My son, Max. No words can describe how it feels to lose a child, be it in utero or thereafter. There’s is nothing that compares to the pain and emptiness you feel. The feeling of failure I get because I couldn’t keep my son earthside. Why?! That’s a question that will never truly have an answer, it was just ‘one of those unfortunate events’ the nurses said.
I continued to carry my son, after his passing, for 5 days, until I went into labour and birthed him in my bathroom. I held my son for what felt like an eternity. I didn’t want to let him go. How could I? He was a part of me.
Max, you know you have2 little brothers now, who I know will be forever guarded by you. I feel you, I just wish I could hold you. I want you to know not a day goes by where I don’t think of you. I just wish I could kiss you and tell you that Mum loves you more than you could ever know.
Fly high my perfect little Angel, free of the troubles in this world. Keep visiting me in my dreams, it keeps me going.
Forever in my heart ❤️❤️ #infantloss #childloss #miscarriage #angel #forevermine #foreveryoung #guardianangel #restinpeace #godgivemestrength #godneededanangel
When you’re actually still...quiet, what do you hear? What does your heart say? I’ve had a lot of time to think the past week. 😔 My husband and I lost our baby at just 8 weeks gestation.💔 Going in for that first ultrasound to find out that baby had no heartbeat was like being hit by a ton of bricks: the weight of the room was on me. In that moment, I just knew it was over. I failed. My body failed. I failed the baby. I will never meet the baby I knew existed with every fabric of my being.
It’s cruel how the onset of pregnancy is so fast and noticeable for a mother. The symptoms, so real, were such sources of joy for me. Then one day, they slowly left and I didn’t even realize it. Life had me so busy and distracted that I didn’t even realize my baby was saying such a slow goodbye.
It’s been very quiet for me the last few days. Very still. People ask me how I’m doing. I converse. I’m present. Yet I’m not. I’m so sad and feeling surprised by these feelings of grief I have. In the stillness, I cry. It’s so easy to cry when it’s quiet, still, and no distractions are keeping me together.
I hope everyone experiencing this stillness right now, just like I am, knows you are not alone. Take time to be still and grieve. I am. ✝️💛 #grieve #RainbowBaby #TTC #MyMiscarriageJourney #Sadness

Warner has revealed she suffered a miscarriage one week after her husband the former Cricket vice-captain @davidwarner31
made a tearful apology for the ball-tampering scandal. the couple had been elated when they discovered she was pregnant while in Cape Town. But then came the scandal and the mother-of-two says the 23 hour flight home from South Africa and the media scrum added to her stress. #Miscarriage #7News
And we have another great review! So happy to hear this! Woohoo!! Who's next?
My author event calendar for the next month. If you’re around Seattle come join the fun!
I'm sorry for your loss🙏🏽 💕The priority here is your health and I think that you need to know where things stand with your health instead before you try to figure out where things stand between you and your bf, if he wanted to know what was going on with you he would reach out to you or unblock you as a way for you to initiate contact and to be honest, with him not wanting the baby in the first place, then finding out that there are two babies, then blocking you-shows that he will not be there for you in any other way at the moment. Besides if you did manage to make contact with him, what would you say? It isn't his right to know anything and he is showing that he isn't interested so you need to leave things as they are with him and look after yourself. If he comes back around at some point asking about the situation then you can tell him about it, but don't go out of your way when you've been blocked on everything to try speaking to someone who has already proved how unsupportive they are! This is not your fault at all, he obviously does not respond or communicate like a mature adult to situations he finds stressful but I am very much feeling that you are desperate to make contact with this guy and you need to think about why you'd want support from someone who has left you at a time when you need him most and has also stopped you from having contact with him! Why would you feel horrible if he didn't know what was going on when he has done it to himself and has made it clear to you that he doesn't want to know... That's why he has blocked you! Please, please focus on your health and on yourself, find out what is going on with your pregnancy first, stop worrying about him! I know it sounds horrible but he isn't worrying about you! So save your peace of mind! I pray you will find the strength you need to get through whatever happens, I wish you all the best! Thank you for reaching out.💕 #abandonedpregnant #abandonment #agonyaunt #dilemma #life #problems #preggoproblems #preggoproblems #pregnancyblog #havingababy #miscarriage #cancer
One of my absolutely favorite meals is true Tex-Mex fajitas with extra carmelized onions and bell peppers! 😍 Plus the guacamole today was particularly tasty.
For gluten free nothing beats a fresh made hot corn tortilla, for keto just hold the tortillas and eat straight up!
Frozen Embryo Transfer Preparation.
Increase odds of IVF pregnancies, and decrease complications/miscarriages with acupuncture. .
Often 3 rounds of ovarian stimulation is required to achieve a pregnancy with IVF, that’s about $80K. Acupuncture is well worth your investment. Consult with 2 or 3 acupuncturist before you decide on one.
Any pregnancy, following a period of sub-fertility will have increased chances of complication. Even those with acupuncture or on your own. Clinical results show acupuncture reduces pregnancy complications, there are many researched results as well.

Prayer. Reading the Bible. Simply spending time with the Lord. These can all be a challenge when you are walking through a season of grief. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Early pregnancy loss can be a really lonely thing to walk through and it can feel even more so if you are not spending time in the presence of the Lord. Crying out to Him and allowing Him to take your fears, anxieties, hopes, and lost desires. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Head over to the blog to read Brittany's 6 ways you can abide in Christ as you walk through sorrow and heart ache. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Praying her words are both an encouragement and a challenge to pursue Christ and abide in Him even when it feels impossible and you struggle to know what to say. It doesn't matter. Because He knows, He hears, and He is near!
Don’t tell her it wasn’t yet a baby, don’t tell her she’ll get over it, don’t tell her she’s not the only one.. none of it makes her feel any better, not one bit. It’s not about what was, it’s about what could of been. The potential. That ‘clump of cells’ as you call it WAS going to be her child. It IS her baby. And it’s a heartbreak that she has to live with for the rest of her days, and hearing ‘you’ll get over it’ or how she’s not the only one doesn’t help. It can be hard to know what to say, but sometimes sitting in silence, offering an ear to talk to, a hand to hold, a shoulder to cry on is all that we need. Have patience with us, because we do learn to cope, to deal with our grief. It doesn’t go away, but it gets easier to manage. Let us talk about it in our own time, and don’t be afraid to talk about it, it’s not taboo, it’s 100% real. #1in4
live this pain, sometimes suffering in silence. Just be there for us, and be patient.
1 year later and it still hurts as much as it did then. No matter what the situation was, how badly things turned out, you my angel would of always been loved & wanted ❤️ .

30days missed cycle, 2mins take a test it's a YES!, instantly attached.
30 seconds Doctor says "it's just gone, you lost the baby.
There are 3 angels roaming heaven playing casually without any idea how crazy it would’ve been being on this Earth with “Mommy” ~ I don’t blame them. .
I made peace with the idea I might never be a mother a long time ago. At 29 I knew two things:
I am unlucky in love &
I might never be someone’s, Mom you’re so weird🤨🙄 .
When I turned 32 something happened to my body. Baby fever and I’m not talking about seeing a cute baby and thinking OMG how cute. .
It’s this big hole where your body yearns to give birth where your mind tells you your clock is ticking and it’s fighting with you to do something about it.
Of course my doctor tells me that’s “normal” but thank God the feeling has died down. I mean babies are cool and all but have you ever sat next to a defensive spoiled teenager. No thank you. .
Repeat after me:
God makes no mistakes.
God makes no mistakes.
God makes no mistakes .
There’s always a way to feel motherly, There’s always a chance to feel whole,
There’s always someone who needs to be mentored or needs your guidance. .
Use pain as a muse & find someone who can use a little of your light.
