Day 2 of the Capture Your Grief 2012 project is Self Portrait Before Loss.
This was an easy one for me. I was 15.5 weeks pregnant with Wren and I had just gotten comfortable with my pregnancy and wanted to document it. We lost Finley at 11 weeks - so I was very very nervous the next pregnancy until I had a good ultrasound at 12 weeks. When this picture was taken I was starting to feel flutters and was counting down the days until we found out if we were adding a boy or a girl to our family. I really thought we were "in the clear" at this point in my pregnancy and I was starting to feel better from the morning sickness. Only a few days after this picture was taken I went to a routine appointment and found that our little baby had passed away.
