I ate a turkey sandwich from my favorite kosher deli. I nuked it in the micro first, but I am still nervous because that’s me. I am the kind of person who is irrationally scared of food poisoning when I am not pregnant, and I just ate deli meat. This is called desperation.
So, pregnancy gods, I implore you! I have been scared to eat for weeks and I needed something with nutritional value. Please forgive me just this once.
No, I couldn’t really enjoy it, but yeah, it was good…
Today is the day… we are going Facebook official with the pregnancy. It is an absolutely – flawlessly – beautiful day here in NJ, and in spite of the bleeding yesterday we got a good report from doc… so today just feels like the day.
There is one thing tugging at my heartstrings. The people who will see my announcement and feel despair, emptiness, or frustration. Yes, I have waited for this moment, but I so feel for everyone in the infertility community, no matter what stage of the journey they are on. Along with the picture below, I plan to add the caption: “Brought to you by patience, love, and science. Never give up hope.”
