Meh.

That's how I'm feeling right now.
Meh.
I know I'm not the only woman in the world wishing she was pregnant,
but I hate that it feels that way.
I know there are people out there with worse problems than me,
but it doesn't ease the ache I feel right now.
I know this has helped me grow spiritually and emotionally,
but I wish it didn't have to come this way.
I know it's wrong to be jealous,
but that's my first instinct when I glance at others' swelling bellies.
I know this is just one bad day among many good ones,
but I still need to talk it out.
I know that I probably shouldn't post this because it's depressing,
but you are my girlfriends and I need your love.
And I know that this too shall pass.

  3. Mari,
    You are right. You are not the only one feeling this way. Whether it is a yearning for motherhood or something else that is causing the heartache. Thank you for letting me know that I am not alone.

  4. I'm really sorry you are having a hard time right now. Hang in there, you are right, this too shall pass even if it doesn't feel like it right now. I don't know that I can even say anything to offer much comfort but do hang in there and I'm thinking of you!

  8. Oh friend, I wish I was there to help you get through such a hard time in your life. Just think how much sweeter that day will be when you finally get to hold that baby in your arms. Like they say, you wouldn't know happiness without experiencing sadness. I just can't even fathom how they day will be for you two. It sure will be absolutely amazing to say the least, and you two deserve every minute of that and more. :)

  9. Your honesty to your friends is great. You need to have support and know people care. And if you don't let us know, we don't know you need extra love.

  10. BAH I'm glad I'm not the only one who has felt this way! Just give it time - it's true what they say about time healing everything. And also (to change the subject), loved your Halloween costume!

  14. You don't know me. I'm Becky's friend from college. I've met Tyson a time or two. I appreciated your words on this post. I'm in your same boat. For different reasons, I'm sure, but the feelings are the same nonetheless. Hang in there.
