Just venting a little..
There was a long period in our marriage where we thought we weren't able to have kids, at least without the help of a lot of fertility medicine and patience.
Now, we have been blessed with a baby boy, and even though my husband is missing most of the pregnancy being over seas, we are so grateful for this and cherishing every moment.
What is is upsetting though, is when I post my firsts (kicking, hiccups, etc..) there's always a few friends who will comment saying, "It's an annoying feeling, you'll out grow it!" "Just wait, you'll hate that feeling soon enough!" *sigh* No, I don't think I will. This is all we've ever wanted, and I'm completely thankful every moment. Whether it be round ligament pain, nausea, food aversions, or his cute little kicks.
I feel as if those comments are insensitive. There are people who don't get to go through this at all, and would kill for this. We thought that was us.
The best way I knew how to deal with it was to be thankful that I was at a place in my life where those things that may have just been awful for others were wonderful for me. I learned to pray for those people that they found some good in such a miracle.
Keep your head up, mama. It IS amazing!
