Thanks for visiting Project Sweet Pea. This project has come about as a personal method to cope with the struggles with recurrent pregnancy loss. Having decided to leave the baby-making until after we established our careers and settled ourselves into life in another country, my husband and I were shocked to discover that it wouldn’t be as easy as we had thought or as it is for seemingly everyone else. Having lost now six babies in 18 months, with none of them exceeding the stage of what is referred to as the size of a sweetpea, we have become different people to when we started this process. Everyday is a constant struggle to manage the grief, regret, sadness, confusion and frustration. By creating this blog, I’m able to let it all out. To treat this as a project that I have yet to complete, something I need to work on to help me achieve my goal. A way to manage the resources I have found useful and alleviating in this horrible and unfair process.
