17dpo – little glimpses of the possibility of joy

November 25, 2006 at 1:42 pm 3 comments

Dh and I spent the day together – we went out to see a movie, did some minor shopping, played a computer game and had an otherwise relaxing day.
I have still been numb more or less to the big news in our life, but today I did have flutters of tiny feelings as random thoughts would hit me – like a thought that I will actually be able to pick up a pregnancy book again. Or that passing through the baby section of a store may not hurt anymore. Or the exciting thought that I might be finally able to delight in starting a keepsake pregnancy journal.

Most of these thoughts, I still push away. I still want to believe and to see more progress and more good news before I fully accept it into my heart. I can’t even open my mouth and say things like “when we have the baby” – if I even want to express myself that way, I ALWAYS feel compelled to add “if all goes well”, or “if things go as hoped”. IF IF IF.

I recall reading several journals of women who never had to experience IF or m/c. They would start planning the nursery and choosing names the day the pregnancy test came back positive. What ignorant bliss. As one book said so well, couples who go through m/c learn that a BFP is still a LONG ways from having that baby.

I feel safe being cautious, and yet I do not want to rob myself of the joy. I will just have to find a happy medium, and a point where I would allow myself to feel it. The last thing I would want after all, is to go through that very first pregnancy and never allow myself the precious feelings and moments that need to come with it. Especially after having waited SO long and gone through SO much to be here.

I will breathe a sigh of relief if things go well on Monday, and even more so, once we have a sonogram. Till then… I’ll just allow myself those glimpses of hopefully… things to come.

    Me too. My DH is already deciding who will be in the delivery room and I still can’t get the hang of the phrase “I’m PG”. I keep saying, “if everything goes well” too…
