The Secret Garden Meeting-August


If you created a bedroom for your baby tell us what it was like. Did you have it ready for them before they were born? If so how did you cope coming home to it without your baby? Did you pack it all away? What is your baby's room now? If you lost your baby after they had come home what is it like going into there room now? If you are trying to conceive again, or are pregnant again how do you feel about setting up another room before your baby is born?


Before Carleigh's diagnosis I had no plans on creating a bedroom for her. I had planned on keeping her in our room for the first 6 months just like I did for Kyndra. By the time she would need her own room we planned on living in a new house. She would be in the crib that Kyndra used with the same nursery theme, which was Sea Life. Well, once we got her diagnosis all that went down the drain. We made no plans to move and Kyndra still sleeps in her crib.

My plans are still the same for our next baby. They'll stay in our room for 6 months and then move to the crib with the Sea Life theme. I intentionally bought a neutral theme when I was pregnant with Kyndra so that I could use it for all of our future children, whether they be boys or girls. We'd also like to move to a different house by the time they would move to their crib.

On another note, I got a lovely surprise from Freja's mommy. She wrote Carleigh's name in the sand. Thank you so much Holly!
