I’m so sorry for your losses, and waiting for things to start naturally is a horrible place to be. I’ll be sending positive thoughts your way tomorrow. I’ve also had back-to-back pregnancy losses (more like back-to-back-to-back-to-back), with my most recent a month ago. This is the hardest thing I’ve been through, but it is what it is, I guess. I had a D&C a few years ago for a non-pregnancy-related issue and, though I obviously didn’t have the emotional strain of the procedure, it went smoothly. I did have heavy cramping afterward, but nothing a little pain medication couldn’t help.
I went to a “young” adults (we’re all in our 30’s) meeting at my church last week. One couple had a baby in a carrier, one guy brought his 18 m.o., one woman was talking about her pregnancy and they were ALL saying how they needed to put the pressure on another couple that wasn’t there to start having kids. Knife in the heart. I held it together, but between that, last week I woul dhave been 6 months pregnant with my November pregnancy and my Mother-In-Law had major surgery yesterday so DH is Out of Town all week, I’m kind of a mess. I tend to be melodramitic in general, so I don’t know which is “real” grief and which is me creating drama in my head.
Does anyone know any good jokes? This one reminds me of my DH:
An engineer crosses a road when a frog calls out to him, “If you kiss me, I’ll turn into a beautiful princess.” He bends over, picks up the frog and puts it in his pocket.
The frog speaks up again and says, “If you kiss me and turn me back into a beautiful princess, I will stay with you for one week.” The engineer takes the frog out of his pocket, smiles at it and returns it to the pocket.
The frog then cries out, “If you kiss me and turn me back, I’ll do whatever you say!” Again the engineer takes the frog out, smiles at it and puts it back into his pocket.
Finally, the frog asks, “What is the matter? I’ve told you I’m a beautiful princess, I’ll stay with you for a month and do whatever you say. What more do you want?”
The engineer says, “Look, I’m an engineer. I don’t have time for a girlfriend, but a talking frog, now that’s cool!”
