Keepin' On

This is a hard time to be a part of this demographic. (Because usually it's a pretty easy road, right? Note sarcasm.) We are far enough out now that many of the people we're on this journey with are moving on, getting pregnant again. Don't get me wrong, I'm so happy for them and wish them nothing but the best. But of course there's that twinge of jealousy wishing that it was me. And hopefully it will be very soon!

Isn't it funny how I can be happy for the friends welcoming their rainbow babies and yet still so bitter toward others who are so blissfully ignorant? There is a commercial on now, I think it's for a phone, and the woman is telling her husband that she's pregnant. The last line is, "You're gonna be a daddy!" and every time I just want to scream, "DON'T COUNT ON THAT!"


  1. I always immediately think that too when I see someone pregnant on t.v. or in a movie. I just instinctively say "hope the baby doesn't die." I can't stand that I do it but it will pass (hopefully)

  2. I used to think that about other pregnant moms all the time too...occasionally I still find myself thinking it when I see someone ignorantly talking the "happy expectant talk" and want to say something but how could I? It's better, but I'm not sure it will ever go away.
