I (almost) have a new nephew

As I sit here writing this my sister is about 200 miles away, in a hospital, and in labor.  In all likelihood I will have a nephew by morning, or maybe even tonight before I go to bed.  Three sisters.  Three babies.  Three hundred sixty four days.  Twenty two consecutive months of at least one sister being pregnant.

I am so incredibly happy for my sister and brother-in-law.  This is a much wanted and much longed for baby.  Finally, at the end of a long struggle they will get their baby.  I really am happy for them.

But I am so sad for us.  Sad because a baby will never be our happy ending.  I know it will get better but right now it hurts and right now I want this to not be our life.

Tomorrow will be a new day.

  4. Happy Valentine's Day! (said with sarcasm). I'm thinking of you and just want to say that you're not alone. I hope you enjoyed some chocolate and lots of wine. xoxo

    1. That's exactly what I said (with the F word in there, of course). Skipped right over the wine and had scotch on the rocks. :)

    1. Thanks, Mali. Sending love and support right back to you, because I think you need it more than I do right now.

  6. Oh, I know the "not wanting this to be my life" feeling. It's rough and undeniable. Though it does pass, it's an ache like no other.

    Glad you went for the scotch.

  7. I was diagnosed with poor ovarian reserve and very bad prognosis of having a baby with my own eggs. I was even given the option to consider donor eggs. That was around july 2014. I was absolutely devastated with the news and I arranged an IVF for November 2014 and it failed also, given that I had nothing to lose, I contacted Dr.Agbazara i meet online and he send me his herbal product,. Believe it or not... I am already pregnant within few after his help. contact him today with any kind of problem and be happy like me on ( agbazara@gmail.com )
