What I Didn't Know

I am humbled and wowed by your response to my Wanna-Be-Mommy post about infertility. We've been trying to conceive for four years and I was feeling hormonal and tired and cranky and quite frankly nearly giving up hope when I wrote that piece. Your response lifted my spirits.

It is amazing to me that I can post a message to the internet and receive such an outpouring of support and comfort and hope. So many of you I could not pick out of a police lineup, yet given a paragraph of your writing I'd know exactly who you are. Thank you, all of you.

This week has been busy for me. My world has been turned upside down and sent spinning. I've fallen behind on my blog reading and commenting, in fact at the moment I've got well over a thousand posts in my reader. I've been extended another award, to which I have yet to respond. Thank you, My2Boyz! And I'm trying not to let myself get too far behind on my homework from school.

You see, the dizziness, and the hormones, and the fatigue were not just in my head. What I didn't know when I wrote that post last week, was that I was already
[happy dance]

Thank you, all of you, for your support. You have no idea how much it means to me. I imagine I'll need your support and advice even more over the coming months and years.

Oh my goodness! I've got chills and tears in my eyes at the same time, and we've only just met! I'm so excited for you! I'll be praying for a smooth 9 months. And if you need any pep talks/moral support, I'll get you my email. I'm not your typical "pregnancy was a breeze, labor/delivery was a breeze, motherhood is a breeze" kind of mom. I have a compeletely different take on it. I love being a mom, don't get me wrong! Sometimes you need to just tell it like it is!

Seriously, congratulations! You're going to love it!

Excuse me but I needed to fix something that I wrote wrong so I deleted the previous comment. Here it is with the correction. Oh my goodness! Praise God! I am so happy for you and your news and am crying tears of joy. What I would have done to read the word you did on that little test. I can't imagine the thoughts that went through and are going through your head. I love happy endings and can't wait to follow you through your pregnancy. CONGRATULATIONS JUDY AND HUBBY!
