Is it my turn yet?

It's been one of those months where I found out that 95% of the female population is pregnant. And once again, I didn't make the list.

I'm grateful that I went into this blindly optimistic. I'm glad that I had no idea how much time it would take and how much disappointment it would bring. Maybe I should be glad that I don't know what the future will hold, so that I can't dread it and so that I may keep that little glimmer of hope.

We possibly had a faintly positive pregnancy test last weekend. Neither of us said much about it. I never even felt excited. It never crossed my mind that it could be truly positive. And my period the next day proved it. I realized that even a positive test would just be one of many hurdles. Pregnancy isn't even a sure path to a baby. I have several friends who have suffered devastating miscarriages who prove that.

It's been a long, winding road with plenty of road blocks and detours along the way. We're hanging in there just fine, but I sure do wish I was one of those blissfully unaware girls who just got pregnant. There's such a sweet innocence to it all. No worries. Just pure excitement for the baby on its way.


  1. Amber I truly believe you guys will have your turn. I think you will have the gift to be more excited than any of the woman who just get pregnant without effort. You two are in my prayers every night!

  2. I'm so sorry sweetie! Nothing is worse than knowing your pregnant and then having your period follow the next day or a few days later. Biggest hugs are being sent your way! :(

  3. Blissfully unaware is such a good term for such ladies. It's funny how my fertile friends didn't think twice about posting u/s pics on FB at 8 weeks with no worries of losing the pregnancy or anything. For them, nothing goes wrong...including conception!
