Have you ever had a time in your life you wanted something so bad that would have terrified you before?
That is where I am at exactly. Ever since my miscarriage in July this last year I have- prayed, hoped, every single month for a pregnancy test to show positive.
So days ago I took a pregnancy test because my period was late- I was so excited- I imagined in my head what it was going to feel like when I peed on that little stick and it was going to tell me I was pregnant- FINALLY.
Except- it wasn’t. I am not pregnant.
This is where I mention- life is funny- it changes so drastically sometimes.
There was a time in my life where my monthly visitor was a thing I jumped up and down about. A negative pregnancy meant amazing news- that’s where my life has changed.
I know so many women in the same situation. Every single month comes with a disappointment when your period comes.
So the point of this blog post is for those women I know what it’s like- the depression, the disappointment, the envy of others getting pregnant. However, remember it will happen when it is meant to happen.
In addition, it’s for those people as a reminder that many people are facing struggles you have no idea about- so posting a fake pregnancy announcement to get laughs is no difference to me than joking about you having cancer- it’s not funny and actually hurts.
