#Microblog Mondays: Tears Pt. II


Not sure what #MicroblogMondays is? Read the inaugural post which explains the idea and how you can participate too.


There is a brown bib hanging in our spare room closet, it has green lettering and says “Daddy’s Little Monster”. My husband calls our dogs little monsters (affectionately), so when I was shopping for my best friend’s first baby, back in May 2012, it seemed like an appropriate purchase for myself and J since we were about to start trying for a baby of our own. It is the only baby related item I own (besides a pregnancy book). Two and a half years down the road, I began to wonder if that bib was cursing our efforts (I know that’s not reasonable, but it started to feel like a bad omen).

On Dec. 20 when I got my first ever positive pregnancy test I took the bib out of the closet, put it on one of my dogs and sent him to my husband. He looked at the dog, looked at me and I held out the positive test to him. “Really?” he asked, incredulously. I nodded, and he pulled me close and tight. At that moment I began to cry, uncontrollable, gaspy sobs. All of the emotional weight I had been carrying poured out of my eyes and onto his chest. It felt so cathartic, and I didn’t realise the force that was behind them until they sprang forward. Here’s hoping for happy tears only, for the remainder of this pregnancy.

    • Not really, I had a crap ton of bloodwork this morning, including my second beta to ensure levels are over 1000, and then I made an appt to see my new OB on Feb. 11 and an ultrasound on Jan. 16 but for now I am on my own. I don’t even know if I will get any of the results from my bloodwork. Sigh, I hate being in limbo.

Pssst, I'd love to hear from you, leave a comment!
