is it the thought that counts?

My friends are all having babies. It seriously feels like ALL. Being the emotional wreck I am I have refrained from too many phone calls or e-mails because I don't want to rain on their parade. I found my balance point. I have started sending small gifts to friends having babies. I hope this let's them know that I love them, I am happy for them, but I need a little time before I can call them and gush with them over their happy news. I do love them, and I will get to that point. I just need a little time to close any open wounds on my heart.


  1. In my personal opinion, those tiny reminders that you're thinking of them go a long way. Hang in there.

  2. It certainly is the thought that counts. And new mums won't want to spend hours on the phone anyway. I always resort to emails when responding to pregnancy announcements - much easier to hide the tears.

  3. I've caught up on your journey and I feel for you so much. I am waiting on my ovarian reserve tests to come back right now and it's hard. I have already been diagnosed with PCOS, but was also worried that there could be something else since in 21 months I have never been pregnant.

    I am glad that I found your blog and that you have found an online support system. It's so important to know you have a community to turn to. Especially when all your closest friends are busy having their children.
