The impending Hurricane Sandy has brought with her a rash of pregnancy announcements that are hard to handle.
While I am always happy for people announcing pregnancies, the announcements always cause me a twang of pain. A facebook friend, a friend from High School is pregnant with baby #3. I also suspect that my cousin is pregnant. Yes - I define this as a 'rash' of pregnancy announcements. I guess adding all of the celebrity baby announcements doesn't help either.
I suspect that I am a little bit more vulnerable about these announcements lately because my husband and I are getting ready to start to try to conceive again very soon. I am getting anxious about it, I think.
I am anxious it may take another 6 cycles to get pregnant.
I am anxious about having side effects from the Prometrium prescription.
I am anxious that if I do get pregnant I will have another miscarriage.
I am anxious my new reproductive endocrinologist will not be helpful.
I am anxious my thyroid levels will not be lower than before.
I am all around anxious. Add a hurricane to the mix and it is a little overwhelming.
Rainshower: I am anxious
Rainbow: The hurricane isn't heading straight to us. We will be impacted but are on the outskirts of the path. Fingers crossed that I don't have to work tomorrow. I could use another day to myself right now.
