First Come, First Served

Congratulating a fellow infertile on their pregnancy is always an interesting dynamic.

On one hand, I am truly excited for them, and grateful they have moved on to the next adventure.

On the other hand, a small part of me can't help but feel a little deflated. Why not me? I've been waiting longer.

It's then I have to remind myself that parenthood is not a first-come, first-served blessing.

And so I wait...

Michelle, you are a blessing in my life! To know I'm not alone. I just now finished emailing one of those infertility friends who is enjoying being pregnant. I didn't even mention one word about her pregnancy. Just couldn't. But she has been trying longer than me, so I guess I can't complain too much, out of me and her, it was her turn. But I still want mine!

Indeed. But at the same time it gives me hope that people are getting out of the IF black hole. Hugs.

FAITH IN GOD MEANS HAVING FAITH IN HIS TIMING.
