As our 5th "TTC-a-versary" draws near (next month), today marks my 4th Mothers' Day as a mother-in-waiting. Today, I will not leave the house lest someone accidentally wish me a Happy Mothers' Day which I may or may not be able to handle in a graceful manner. Would I smile awkwardly & just keep walking while trying not to cry, or throat punch such a person? Yup; definitely safer to stay home.
While it's cool to see everyone's pics with their moms, both living & deceased, on Facebook, it's equally painful to see the posts of my friends & family with their little ones. So, I decided to make my profile pic the photo I took with Nemo on his/her moving day:
This may be the only photo I ever take with my child. Yes, Nemo is only a day 5 blast, but you cannot imagine the love I have for that little clump of cells. If things actually go according to plan next month's FET, next year Nemo will be a 2 month old for Mothers' Day 2014. If things go badly, there is a great likelihood that I will be in the same exact position next year as I am now: a childless mother.
