A baby after miscarriage? And the point is...

To pass the point in pregnancy, where you last lost a pregnancy, your heart skips a beat. 

To pass the point in pregnancy, where you've had both your scans and find out everything is alright, your heart skips another beat. 

To pass the point in pregnancy, when that pregnancy becomes viable, you breathe a massive sigh of relief. And your heart skips a few more beats.

To pass the point in pregnancy of your due date, again you breathe a massive sigh of relief. And your heart skips a few more beats.

When you pass the point of giving birth to your baby, you cry tears of joy. 

And then you smile. Properly. Completely. And possibly for the first time that entire pregnancy. 

And when you pass that very point, and you finally hold your baby, your heart simply skips.
