#misCOURAGE story, 02/03/2017, by anonymous

I found out I was pregnant early at around 3.5 weeks gestation.

I saw my lines come from barely visible to visible lines, no tweaks no nothing. When I took a picture although it was very faint I didn't need to adjust lighting to actually get it on my camera.

I got positives hpt there on out, I was elated! I couldn't believe it!

Something was odd as my lines weren't getting any darker and turned lighter as days went by, then when I finally decided to test again, negative!

From there on out depending on the time of the day it was either barely there or completely negative. The nausea went down and was so crampy.

My miscarriage actually happened 10 days late from when my period was due at 5 weeks and 2 days late.

Then the unexpected happened, I actually passed my baby! I thought I was early that I wasn't going to see anything but there it was. I guess it was in the sac either way, I passed it! I was in utter shock! I had no idea. It hit me then more then before.

I wrapped him in a blanket, he looks swaddled and we gave him a name: Adriel Juniper as he was conceived around Christmas by a Christmas egg.

I never thought the gap would be so big. Don't let anyone downplay your baby by fetal age, or any age for that matter. They were your baby, your flesh and blood.

I'm doing this post in honor and remembrance of Adriel Juniper and all angel babies out there. Love you and miss you. We will see each other someday.
