Baby Taco: 5 Months
The one thing I love about my friends is that they are all completely different. Some are single, some are dating, some are married, have kids, having their second kid and so on. Some of them still go out every weekend to drink and some are like me, sitting and laughing with their baby. Having Taco has been a life changing experience that I talk about constantly. And when I was pregnant was never shy about all the weird, gross and beautiful things my body was doing. It has not been easy in the least but I realize how absolutly lucky I am to have him.
Since I do have such a wide range of friends and acquaintances I often get asked a lot of the same questions. One is particular was how long we were trying for. I almost feel guilty in answering. I went off the pill, told my husband it will take at least 6 months for it to get out of my system and 2 months later, I was pregnant. No ovulation tests, no seeing doctors it just happened.
I have so many friends struggling. Some are now adopting and others are still waiting for those elusive pink lines. It’s hard seeing them struggle and I never know what to say. I tell them that it’s hard, and being pregnant sucks but they know I’m lying. I have never been happier.
What do I say to make them feel better? What do they need to hear to make them stop being sad? It breaks my heart that they are trying so hard and I didn’t even have to put my legs up. I want to be able to communicate with those friends. To do something to make things not so discouraging. I feel though that because I have not had these issues I can’t relate. I can’t help and it is such a shitty feeling.
