Discovering Me

Me on having babies, losing babies, trying to have babies and hoping to bring this one home.

Mixed (up)

My brother and his wife are going to have a baby. Due May 15. I'm excited for them. I am.

But. Why does it make my heart hurt so much?

    I completely understand. My brother and his fiancee are expecting...she's 12 weeks or so along...and I just have this wild mix of emotions about it.

    Because you're human, and because you went through so much. Too many memories, too much heartache. Too much of everything pregnancy/child related. Be kind to yourself.I believe what you're feeling is normal.

    I think it's a woman thing. I have 3 gorgeous boys...longing for a daughter, and my sister in law is about to deliver her daughter. I'm happy for her....but my heart aches too. There's this void...and like you, nothing but "it" could fill it. I want "it". Just "it".

    I know. I know. I know.

    I know too. :) Hearing about pregnancies is hard for my heart. I hope it won't always be this way, but it is. I have mean thoughts about shiny happy pregnant people in my life and I am trying to let them go.

    If someone is pregnant with twins it is even worse.

    Yes, yes, I know - you are not alone.
