Who would have thought that trying to fall pregnant would be this hard? After the miscarriage in January, my body is literally aching to be pregnant again, to know that after 40 weeks of nuturing and looking after myself and the little one inside me, I would give birth to a gentle beautiful soul whom I will spend the rest of my days staring at in amazement knowing full well they were created from a love and partnership my DH and I have for one another.
I just dont get why its becoming so hard, with our other two it just happened, and I didnt have to think about ovulation and when is a good time and all the other crap that goes along with it, we knew we wanted a baby and bang we were pregnant. I get that I am very lucky to have two beautiful kids, whom in all honesty are gorgeous!!! ;) But what I dont get is everyone saying to me that the baby I lost obviously wasnt meant to be and we will have another one.... yep uh hum but we wanted that baby, we would have loved that baby just as much as we love our other 2. No less no more...the same.
I just cant deal with the heartbreak every month anymore, I need to take a break from it all, and I know I should just suck it in and deal with it, especially since I feel so sad for all the women who cannot concieve or have been trying for the longest time. But I am angry and I'm pissed off and heartbroken that we are not pregnant yet. This last month when we thought there may have been a possiblity that I was, to have that test come back negative was heartbreaking, but I think the hardest thing was having to tell my DH and to see the sadness on his face.
See most men that I know are happy to go with the flow and are a little excited about trying for a third when they make that decision but I see how DH is and he is beside himself with excitement that we are going to be adding to our family, so to tell him that it was negative broke my heart and his. Then we just got to a point where we said " you know what we cant change the fate of our life, what will be will be and if we are meant to have another one then it will happen." We need to focus on the 2 that we already have and be thankful that we were blessed with them. So I'm going to shift all my energy in to being thankful for what I have. I recieved an email today which kinds summed it all up for us.
I AM THANKFUL FOR......
