….and I ain’t even mad. 

One of my coworkers gets it. It being the whole I can have a romantic night and make a baby for free and yours will cost you a small fortune and that’s if your lucky. She gets it. I know she gets it because she didn’t talk about her pregnancy. She really didn’t bring it up ever. She prefaced the initial conversation with kind words even though she didn’t need to. She’s a really nice person and when you’re a teacher you’re surrounded by women bound to get pregnant so I had prepped myself to just except it all. She finally caved and started venting at 40+1d and I don’t blame her one bit. Why? because I’ve been lucky enough to have been there and I get it. Your feet are swollen, you feel like a beached whale, and just walking to the restroom feels like a chore. She hung in there and texted me a picture today (40+6 days). He’s stinking adorable. And I’m happy for her. Her family is complete. 

Am I sitting here sniffling? Why yes, yes I am. I can only keep hoping that in a month I can get the phone call with a strong beta and a few weeks later see another blob on the screen with a little flicker of a heartbeat. 
I blame the meds. Which weren’t as bad as I remembered….but then again hubby’s had some practice before 😉
