All About Timing

12 Jun

My friend had a baby last week, and I am so jealous of her. Besides for the obvious, that she’s over with it – the heartburn, insomnia, waddles and hormones (well, maybe not hormones), she was pregnant for a shorter time than me – me – who’s still pregnant.

No, she wasn’t early. In fact she was about 5 days overdue. What happened is that she didn’t find out she was pregnant until her first trimester was over. Do you get that – first trimester: nausea and exhaustion, flew right over her head. When I knew I was pregnant and anxious for about 2 months already, she was just visiting her doctor saying,’

“I dunno, I’m just not feeling all there…”

Do you get the envy now?

And I’m just sitting here waiting.

    Of course, so many would give anything to be pregnant, nauseau/fatigue/waiting and all.

      You’re right. And I feel for those people, and in some way do appreciate my “suffering” because I know the result is worth it. However, that does not completely negate the misery pregnancy can feel like at times.

    Because I am a prompt person, I spend a lot of my time waiting for others. And many don’t realize the stress of waiting. Sitting in anticipation gnaws away at your strength and stamina. I truly sympathize.

    My sister-in-law still has a few months to go and she is in agony. I truly feel for you.
