Just a little sad...

Back in October, my sister told me that baby #2 was on the way. We've been sad, hurt, upset and the whole gamut of other emotions that some of you have experienced too. We've been TTC since they began dating four and a half years ago - and now they are expecting #2. Somehow, we've been better with it than what I expected we'd be... I'm not sure how or why. We're close and she's been very supportive of us but it still strains our relationship.

This morning, I text her about some concert tickets for next summer to see if they wanted to go. Two of my favorite artists, Kenny Chesney and Tim McGraw, are in concert together and some of us are going! :-) Now, I figured that her due date was close to my birthday, June 17 but I had never asked. Is that terrible?? She said they would pass on the July 1st concert since it was only about 2 weeks after her due date... so I asked. She's due on the 18th. One day after my birthday.

I know it's silly but it bothered me. With her first pregnancy she found out the sex of the baby ON my birthday! Now baby #2 is due practically ON my birthday! Is this really happening? I feel like this can't all be coincidental even though it probably is. But seriously, what are the chances?

I'm just hoping that this new year brings good things for DH and I and the events in other peoples lives won't bother us so much because we'll be so distracted by the wonderful things happening in ours... it's just so hard to stay positive for ourselves with everything happening around us.

Just a little sad this morning... but we'll make it. We always do.


  1. A friend of mine gave birth to her son on my birthday. Now, for the past 2 years, she writes me to wish me a happy birthday and remind me how special that day is to her. It's bad enough that I'm not a fan of my birthday, but now I have a reminder of what I'm struggling for.

    I wish there was something I could suggest to make this better. Instead, I'm sending you a big hug and keeping you in my thoughts.

    BTW: I gave you an award. If you feel up for a distraction, this one will do the trick

  2. Sending you ((hugs)). I will hope with you that on your birthday this upcoming year that you will distracted with your own good news. C'mon 2012!!!

  3. I'm sorry it turned out that way. Hoping and praying you will be distracted soon!

  4. Thank you for linking to my blog. :) Yours is listed on mine too.

  5. My thoughts are with you.. I hope that this sadness will pass to be replaced with a sense of peace and hope. Hang in there.

  6. I hope that 2012 brings us both good things! Here's to joy and blessings to replace our sadness and longing! ♥

  7. I noticed that you posted on my personal blog "a long time coming" and wanted to let you know that my IF blog has much more invested in it when it comes to TTC. Not sure if you are a follower of MissConception, but it's there if you want to link up.


    I am sorry about what you are going through. I know how it goes. We're thinking of you. BTW, my younger sister is now on her second too.
