Well, I think considering what happened right before Christmas I did pretty well with it all. We spent Christmas at my parents house and my brother, sister-in-law and their 2 kids were there as well. The girls are 9 and 6 so thankfully no babies to deal with. Friday and Saturday were ok, until Saturday night. We went to Mass at 5pm (the children’s Mass) and I think just being in that setting, church decorated, all the kids, singing Christmas music, praying…I had a few moments throughout the service, where I teared up. Thankfully my husband was there to hold my hand and I to hold his. Then of course the Priest said to pray for all the expectant mothers and that about did me in….that was supposed to be me!!
A couple of other relatives dropped by. It was nice to see them, but the first thing my cousin did was ask me how the 2nd IVF went? Well, she said “so how are you?” I said ok….then she said “did it work?” First off, I was not aware that she knew! My mom had told my Aunt and she apparently told her daughter! Anyway, I told her that I miscarried and then of course I started to cry….then before she left she gave me a pep talk about it. I know she meant well and I really appreciate it, but more tears. But once we got through that, the rest of the trip was good. Hubby and I got to have lunch with a friend from highschool and her family. We had a great time with them.
So now we count down to the end of the year. Can’t believe it is almost here….will post some reflections in my next blog, probably tomorrow….stay tuned!
