Project Life Week 7

I have been hesitating to post my Project Life pages for the past few weeks.

I was inspired by this post to just be honest about life and talk about the good and the bad.

Week 7 of this year I got a positive pregnancy test (yay!) after two or three negative ones. Unfortunately this last week I had a miscarriage. I know this may sound way too public and exposing, but I am not upset that I documented and will remember this little short term pregnancy. Matty and I were pretty attached to the little poppy seed growing inside me.

I don't think there is anything wrong about talking about it. I am glad I told people that I was pregnant because I had so many people to lean on when I found out it wasn't going well! I am so, so grateful for my awesome girls (You know who you are.) :)

On a positive least this week 7 was full of fun and exiting things! Valentine's day! Froyo! A valentine made just for me by my awesome husband! Mom came to town.

On the title card I used one of the foldable journal cards to write down some more personal thoughts and then I secured it with a cute paper clip. One of the journal cards I made by myself...its the aqua one...and I love that I placed the lines vertically. I think it adds some fun to the album. I used a lot of Martha's labels this week!
In the second part of my week, the highlights were my new instax camera (LOVE THAT!) and the arrival of Elle's new baby Pippa. We were so excited to be at the hospital when she arrived and meet her in the first few minutes of life. Also, as you can see, I ate a wonderful Pink Cookie! I also did some organizing with my mom and including the business card from Storables. And yes, there is that lovely pregnancy test for all to see.

To end this post on happy note, the gal who wrote the blog post that I linked is now pregnant again! She is 11 weeks pregnant now, even though she lost her first in December! This is very encouraging news. :)

Soon I will post weeks 8 and 9, as soon as I get them photographed.


  1. I am so glad you feel comfortable talking about it. I did a scrapbook page of my positive pregnancy test my first pregnancy too. It is sweet to look back on and know how much you can love that tiny little "poppy seed". A mother's and father's love is so amazing. Love you Jenn!! Thanks for sharing with us!

  2. I am so sorry for you guys. I think it's great to be open about miscarriage, especially knowing how scarily common it is. Women need to know that they are not alone!

    I hope you get your permanent poppy seed soon. :)

  3. I am so glad you were able to share this. Your project life is also a great way to document life. Life in all it's events. Lubm.

  4. Love to see your PL pages and I'm glad you have so many awesome people to lean on!
