12 months? 14 Months? 24 Months? How about my whole frickin’ life!!!
Tomorrow, we have our first appointment with the fertility specialist. It’s been 4.5 months of waiting to get in.
Patience is a virtue. I feel as if I’ve perfected it, but really the waiting game isn’t about perfecting anything except the ability to let go.
Let go of the:
- Stupid people asking stupid questions
- Symptom checking
- Why me?
- Disappointment and tears every time your period arrives
And instead, look forward to the:
- Positive test
- Baby room decorating
- Birth planning
- First look
- First touch
- First cry
Look forward to spending the rest of your life loving your child, this individual soul who chose you and whose tiny body was conceived from love.
Look forward to the future. It will happen. And I am looking forward to when it does. *sigh*
