Our Miscarriage Story

Happy Friday!

So as many of you many know we had our doctors appointment yesterday. And things didn’t go the way we would have hoped. I am going to have to miscarry this pregnancy. (If this is your first time reading this you can see my first bump update).

I first want to thank everyone for checking in on us yesterday. I appreciate it more than you know! I know I’ve gotten a few remarks as to why we shared this pregnancy so early…. Well here is my thing, If we had waited to share, then we would be going through this alone. God created each of us for community, to have so many people pray for us, and believe with us has been overwhelming. So… thank you, thank you, and THANK YOU! We are overwhelmed with the love we have received.

Wednesday night Jordan and I worshiped and prayed together. I wanna say that I truly felt the peace of God come over me like a blanket. I sometimes think how crazy it is, and how is it that I am handling this so well (or as best as I can)? But I know, that I know, that God is with us.

It’s easy to ask God why me, or why did you let this happen to us. It’s easy even to think maybe I didn’t pray hard enough, or maybe we didn’t have enough faith. But I was quickly reminded by my sister (love you sis!) that those are all lies! We are every day walking out in faith; God doesn’t send us trials to test our faith. He also hears our cry no matter how big or small.

We live in a sinful world, and I don’t know why God allows certain things to happen. And honestly, even though it would be nice to know all the answers, I’m not sure I would want to know. Because if I knew everything, then I wouldn’t need God… and I desperately need him.

All in all, are we okay? Yes! Does it hurt? Yes. But is God good? Heck yes, he is. We are confident that this will be used for his glory, and that he is not done with us or our testimony.

Lastly, I share our story, not get page views, or to get any personal gain. I share our story to say hey, we have our struggles, we also go through things and life is not perfect.

But that we serve an amazing God.

In the midst of pain, we will continue to praise him. Just like the Hillsong goes… “Even when the fight seems lost, I’ll praise You. Even when it hurts like hell, I’ll praise You. Even when it makes no sense to sing, louder then I’ll sing Your praise.”

I want to encourage you during your trials to continue to seek his face, his peace, and HIM.

It’s gonna hurt, but you’ll come out stronger.

    It’s gonna hurt, but you’ll come through stronger.

    I LOVE that. I’m not dealing with this particular issue, but we are dealing with a lot of hurts right now. It’s a good reminder that it won’t be forever.

    So sorry that you’re going through this, but I’m glad you’re able to stay positive.

    • Elly says: http://www.uptownwithellybrown.com

      Jaelan, I am so sorry you are in the midst of hurts right now too. Praying that whatever it is you are going through that God will give you strength, and peace. And that now more then ever you will feel his love and his presence in your life! If you need anyone to talk to or to pray with I am here!

    Oh my goodness, your faith is that of refined gold. Thank you for sharing so openly and candidly about this hurting place that you and your family are in. Praying for you, that Jesus would continue to shield you in His peace and that you’ll experience the love of God in new and refreshing ways.

    • Elly says: http://www.uptownwithellybrown.com

      Amen! Thank you Nina, I receive that!! I hope you are having a good weekend!

  • Caroline says: http://www.in-due-time.com

    I am so so sorry. I am so glad you are sharing because you are exactly right, we weren’t meant to walk through the trials alone. I hate that you are going through this but praying you feel the Lord’s presence and he reveals more of himself to you and your hubs. And your sis is right – those are so many lies. You are doing the best thing you can… worshipping him through the storm! Praying for your heart xoxo

    • Elly says: http://www.uptownwithellybrown.com

      Thank you Caroline! Thank you for being here and praying for us! We are praying for you and you hubby too! <3

  • Jaclyn says: http://www.beautyandthebinky.com

    I love you so so much, sweet babe, and you have been so absolutely admirable through all of this. I’m still beyond excited to journey with you to Brown babe #3!

      Thank you Alex! Hope you are having a good weekend!

    I admire your strength, The Lord makes no mistake about what he does, all in his timing…. Be blessed and have a Great Memorial Day weekend……

    • Elly says: http://www.uptownwithellybrown.com

      Hey Retha! You are so right, he makes no mistakes. He is good and faithful! I hope you are having a good weekend too!

  • Jessica says:

    It’s terrible that anyone would judge your decision to share your pregnancy, and by doing so insinuate that you’d want to hide what you’re going through. I think it’s amazing and brave of you to share what you’re dealing with. People don’t talk enough about miscarriage and infertility issues. God will use this pain to help you and your family grow closer to him and each other. You will have so much empathy and compassion to share with other women who have been through something similar.

    • Elly says: http://www.uptownwithellybrown.com

      You are so right Jessica! You just can’t win with some people though. Doesn’t matter what you do! I hope you are having a good weekend!

  • Natasha says: http://www.burdlife.com

    Sending positive thoughts your way. Will also say a prayer for you and your family today.
    Take care xx

  • Kait says: http://www.communikait.com

    My heart just breaks reading this. Sending love and good vibes to you and your family!

  • Dani says:

    Beautifully written! Praying for you guys.
    Be blessed, xoxo.

    I had a missed miscarriage recently myself (stopped growing at 8 weeks) but didn’t find out until 9 weeks. Because I hadn’t told people we were expecting, it was much harder to go through alone. I don’t judge you for sharing your news, positive or negative it’s your life and if people are following you on social media it’s by choice. I’m very sorry this is happening to you, I hope you’re ok. I will be sending positive thoughts your way

    • Elly says: http://www.uptownwithellybrown.com

      Thank you MJ. I am so sorry you had to go through that. I know the pain and how you are feeling. I will be praying for you, It’s unfortunate that some people just like to drag you down. But that’s okay you just can’t win with some!

  • Katie says: http://www.katiespinks.com

    love you girl!! keep on singing those lyrics even when it truly does hurt like hell!! sending all the love and prayers your way knowing that He knows what you need before you even ask it! When we were going through all our infertility I use to just cry out “why” but I have learnt that maybe on this side I will never know the answers and that is ok too … just walk by faith!

    • Elly says: http://www.uptownwithellybrown.com

      Thank you Katie! I keep thinking if I knew all the answers, then I wouldn’t need God. And, life with out God isn’t any fun!

  • Leesha Leuthold says: http://www.captivatingfemininity.com

    I’m so sorry to hear this. That makes me so sad. Tanner and I have had 2 miscarriages and it’s the hardest thing we’ve ever gone through, but your right God is good and it can bring Him glory! I hope you guys can get pregnant soon again!

    • Elly says: http://www.uptownwithellybrown.com

      Leesha, I am so sorry to hear you had to go through that as well! I will be praying for y’all!

  • Trista says: http://www.shopaholicandababy.com

    God bless you and your family, as I’m keeping you in my thoughts and in my prayers. You are an amazing, strong woman and have inspiring faith. xo

  • Kristina says: http://novemberpining.blogspot.com

    I’m so sorry for your loss. I actually went through a miscarriage in May as well, and my arms couldn’t have felt emptier. “Thy Will” has been a great song for me too. I’ll be praying for a healthy pregnancy and for your story to reach others and make His name greater.

    • Elly says: http://www.uptownwithellybrown.com

      Kristina, I am so sorry you had to go through that. It’s been a bit weird life after miscarriage. There’s a void, I guess a piece of me that was taken.. if that makes any sense. I will be praying for you too, for God to bless you with a beautiful, healthy, and strong baby! Thank you for taking the time to read and stopping by! Hope you had a good weekend! 🙂
