When you’re cleaning out your nightstand and you find the list of baby names you made the night before you lost the baby.


It was just over a year ago and we decided to tell our son that I was pregnant. We were so overwhelmed that it was finally happening — we couldn’t contain our excitement. The three of us sat down and had such a fun time exploring our favorite names. Some were jokes and some were serious. I remember putting the list on my nightstand and feeling weird about things. I started bleeding the next day.


Painfully and slowly, it lasted days. I must of tucked this list away in my nightstand in hopes of maybe using it later.


I didn’t know how to feel when I found it today. So I tucked it back in its place. Maybe I’ll find it again at another time when things are different. #ihadamiscarriage
