She's Pregnant!

No, not ME! But someone equally important.

I talk about the Bump a lot and the ladies that I have met along the way. While I am very lucky to have great family and friends in my every day life, I have met some equally amazing ladies through this site. We have celebrated the first "February" baby, Walker, being born but has also mourned the losses of babies that didn't make it that far. We are a family of our own. We have inside jokes, we share secrets, we're friends.

Along the way came a girl named Kimberly. She was a young, spiritual, funny, quirky, LOVING girl that all of us felt connected to. She was expecting twin boys, Isaac and Porter. She would learn in her pregnancy that they had developed TRAP sequence. A mere 1% have the condition. She would go into preterm labor a couple weeks after I had Walker and she sadly lost both sweet boys.

It was a moving experience for all of us. As much as we are human and share our feelings with our family and friends, sometimes it's easier for us to write it out and share it that way. As a group, we circled around one of our own and wanted Kimberly and her husband to feel our love. There were tears, anger and lastly happiness.

I am very excited to share with all of my readers that Kimberly is expecting. My heart is full with excitement and joy and nervousness as if I was pregnant. To read Kimberly's blog, you can click here. She shares her story of Isaac and Porter and also talks about TRAP sequence. She is so strong and so brave and she very much deserves this piece of happiness.
