4 babies in the last week and one due any day now. Add 2 pregnancy announcements and well, I feel like a bag of sh*t. Not only do we not get to participate in pregnancy announcements and birth announcements, every time it happens the voice my head goes “what if it is never you…”.
On bad days, days like today, I give in to that voice. It’s right. What if it isn’t me? What if we never get to have and hold a baby of our own? What if we are left in the cold and on the sidelines forever? Our friends move on with their lives and their babies and we are stuck forever in limbo, the couple that doesn’t belong.
This post sums up the feelings well: Babies Everywhere by Maybe Baby. She gets it.
