After our 12 week ultrasound which was our NT scan, we decided we would finally tell our son the big news. We had decided to wait awhile before sharing this with him. Although I have never experienced a miscarriage we wanted to veer on the cautious side in case we could spare him the hurt if that was to happen. We do know that just because we passed the 12 week mark we are not in the full clear for miscarriage…in fact no one ever is. We are not in the clear for anything. But we decided to wait until the high risk time for a miscarriage passed before we included him in the excitement.
After the appointment we picked him up from my mother’s and when we got home we told him the news. He was sitting on the couch with my husband & I was standing in the kitchen behind our “island” that looks into our living room. We said “You know how you are always asking when we are going to have another baby?”…He yelled “Were gonna have another one!?” We told him “Yes we went to the doctors and they told us that we were.” He replied as he squirmed into the couch a little, “I hope this baby gets to take a breath of our air…cuz Janessa‘s heart stopped working and she couldn‘t breathe.”…silence…"Yes Jayden so do we….the doctors are going to watch the baby very closely so we can hopefully bring this baby home. There is always a chance something could happen but we are going to do everything we can to make sure the baby is healthy"….He said "I knew it…I saw your belly getting bigger & I knew you were pregnant." We laugh. “Why didn’t you ask Jayden?” he answered “I didn’t feel the pressure to ask.”
Not much gets by Jayden.
