When I got pregnant with our first child, my husband and I couldn’t have been happier! We would stand in front of the bathroom mirror marveling at all the changes taking place in my reflection. We bought little onesies and dreamed about how we’d decorate the nursery. We envisioned ourselves holding a beautiful little baby in just 8 more months
And then the bleeding started. I was in pain and absolutely sure I was having a miscarriage. We went to the hospital right away.
Ever had a time in your marriage where the ground felt pretty shaky under your feet? Like it would give way at any moment, no matter what you did?
I had an experience like this in the early months of my marriage.
When I first married my military hubby, I gave up my career and home to move with him across the country. It was an exhilarating experience! To be newlyweds, away from the familiar, experiencing new things together, creating beautiful memories every step of the way.
Then things got a little uncertain.
