Small things


There are some days where I still can not believe that I am so lucky that our third time was a charm (along with some kicking Fairyeggs of course). This blog has helped me in so many ways in simply getting through the days that led up to this. I have really appreciated everyone known and unknown who comments and supports me. Without this, I really don't know if I would have every made the choices that led me up to where we are now. 

That being said, I get that it is incredibly painful for some of my fellow infertiles to continue to read about my happiness. If you must go, I understand. I hope that the future brings you peace and success in building your families. But, I really hope that you'll stay.

My hubby and I were able to escape to a city about an hour south of us and hit up a few stores. We are trying to put together a survival pack in case anything happens on our big adventure north. Those purchases didn't go so well, but I was able to hit up the shops for some maternity jeans, soft shorts, and a very cute dress. The dress was great because it actually covered up the girls completely which can be hard sometimes for me! I also scored a pair of Merrell winter boots for 1/2 price which will be helpful when we move to the land of snow! Finally, we hit up Old Navy for my hubby's favorite flag shirt which he buys every year. We also bought our first baby item in the picture at the bottom. :)

Seeing how incredibly tiny the little onesie is brought it home for me that this is happening. That this really could happen. In mere months there could be a little squirmy baby inside. I think my heart melted.

  2. love the pic Jen. Thanks for being so sensitive for those of us still on the dark side but I personally think you are an inspiration. I know your journey was not easy so you deserve that lemon inside you. But I do appreciate your thoughtfulness. xxxx

  3. I belonged to a community where there were intended parents via surrogacy and surrogates as well. Never once did I do less than rejoice, as my empty arms remained empty.

    Please don't feel guilty in your joy. Everyone has their time. Your true friends won't even feel a dart of envy. They will rejoice, as I do, in your joy!

  4. I guess technically I'm one of those you talk about, but I am so- so- so incredibly happy... I might just be living vicariously through you for now! :) I'm sad I missed you yesterday, it would have been fun to see you... now, my cousin who is 20 and has been to rehab three times... ya his girlfriend just had a baby (a little boy)- no so fond of that whole idea!!

  5. I wrote a post about this too early on. I was so excited about our blessing, but felt guilty because of my IF bloggie friends! They were very understanding and happy for us, but you still don't want to step on anyone's toes. Remember this is your place to write what YOU want!!

  8. Hi honey... I wont lie... I am one of the less emotionally developed ones who sometimes struggles to check in.. but I just have to because your blog and you mean a lot to me and my sadness at my situation doesnt temper my joy at your happiness. Thank you for your sensitivity. For remembering us on the other side (hugs) and I for one "will be around".
    Someone signed off my blog yesterday so I know what it feels like that people are not interested in reading anymore or want to share.. but we each have our own journeys. Mine is just taking longer than expected.

  11. It was nice of you to post about being sensitive to those of us who have not achieved success. Your journey has been long and difficult and I want to follow you until that precious baby gets here. I admit it isn't always easy but you deserve this happiness.

  12. I don't know what happened to my first comment, so if you get a comment twice from me saying the same thing, delete one, lol!
