The other day I sat in a room full of pregnant women. We were making small talk about our pregnancies, asking about due dates, hospitals and whatnot. We had a camaraderie because we were all first time mothers. You could see the excitement in all of our faces.
As I was recounting this story to Tim, he reminded me of the first time I was in a room with a bunch of pregnant women. I was just six weeks pregnant and we were getting our first ultrasound. It was the ultrasound that would confirm we had a viable pregnancy. I felt as if a dark cloud were hanging over me.
I sat in a stupor as the women chatted about their upcoming due dates. When they turned their excited eyes on me and inquired about my due date, all I could say was, “I’m still waiting for my period.”
It’s amazing how my attitude has changed and my excitement has progressed over the last few months.
