When We’re Weary

In Infertility and Miscarriage, Uncategorized by Madison Mayberry10 Comments

First, thank you all so much for your prayers and support. Although things don’t look good, knowing we are being lifted up in prayer by so many people, including friends we’ve never met in person, absolutely humbles me. Sometimes thinking about it brings me to tears and I feel so undeserving of those prayers. Would I respond in kind if I were on the other side? I hope that I do when given the opportunity. My tendency is to tie things … Read More

Let’s Talk About Miscarriage (Round 3)

In Infertility and Miscarriage, Pregnancy, Uncategorized by Madison Mayberry57 Comments

I’m posting a picture of me with my cute puppy because, hey, It’s more uplifting than a picture of my hospital bracelet. 🙂 Those of you who follow me on Instagram have probably already seen my update that it appears I am miscarrying yet another baby. This time, I was tempted to keep our sad news close and quiet, but I’ve been so blessed to share this journey with you all, and it seems wrong to stop sharing now. If … Read More

Spiritual Encouragement After Miscarriage

In Infertility and Miscarriage, Uncategorized by Madison Mayberry25 Comments

Image Source I wish there was a manual on moving forward after a miscarriage. Sure, there’s a lot of information out there on what to do and what not to do, and the pamphlet they send you home with at the hospital talks about doing lots of nice things for yourself, like buying yourself small things and getting regular massages. (Really? I mean, it would be nice, but it seems like you’re milking it, rather than processing through your feelings.) … Read More

Physical Recovery After Miscarriage

In Infertility and Miscarriage, Uncategorized by Madison Mayberry17 Comments

After today, I plan to write one more post about miscarriage before I resume to a more normal posting schedule. I realize that not all of you are interested in reading about this topic, but I hope that someday you might be able to send links to these posts along to someone who is recovering from a miscarriage. Or perhaps you may, down the road, come back and re-read them yourself. I wish there wasn’t a need for such posts, … Read More

Supporting a Friend Through Miscarraige

In Infertility and Miscarriage, Uncategorized by Madison Mayberry26 Comments

I’ve mentioned this before, but the way our community has loved and supported us this last week has blown me away. It’s been so healing to be able to walk through this with support and to talk about our experience instead of keeping it silent. Since miscarriage is such a personal thing and not everyone has experienced it, I’ve found that a lot of people are at a loss as to how to respond in the wake of such an event. … Read More

The Sting of Multiple Miscarriages

In Infertility and Miscarriage, Uncategorized by Madison Mayberry78 Comments

Although I may not be one for planning ahead, I’ve had this day marked on my calendar for the last 10 weeks. Ever since we found out just a few days before Valentine’s Day that we were expecting a baby due in October, I’ve had this day circled on my planner as the day I would publish a blog post announcing our good news. But as you may have already guessed, I won’t be sharing that happy news today. Instead, … Read More

It is Well

In Infertility and Miscarriage, Uncategorized by Madison Mayberry88 Comments

{Completely unrelated but beautiful photo of summertime.} Lately I’ve been feeling that my posts have lacked a little bit of depth, that they’ve been surface-y and lackluster. Have you been picking up on that, too? Having a blog is a strange thing. There are boundaries to what I will and will not share on this site; I don’t post personal details about my marriage, family dynamics, disagreements, and things that are not mine to share. As a rule of thumb, … Read More
