Testing

I received a call from a good friend today... You're right, she is pregnant. Her second. They started trying before us, had a miscarriage, then got pregnant & have a 1yr old. Now another coming. Hm.

Make this my 3rd pregnancy announcement in a week. My 4th friend to enter that realm.

Am I being sorely tested???? You bet.

Hi there. I found you through Samantha's blog. Just wanted to say that you are definitely being tested. I had seven pregnancies in my office of 27 people last year. (!!!) I'm really hoping they're done with their families. I can't take much more...especially since the office was supposed to be my sanctuary! Hang in there.

Oh dear; that's so hard! In those situations, I just have to keep telling myself that God promises not to give me more than I can handle.

I'm so sorry, That hurts so much. :(

Bless your heart! Nothing to say but I'm so sorry. Sucks to be standing with all your friends on the train platform, and they all get on the trains one by one, and suddenly you realize you're the only one still standing there, watching as the train pulls away again and again. Sucks, sucks, sucks. But God has a plan. I know He does, but it's SO hard for me to understand it sometimes....

I'm sorry too. It is difficult to be, in effect, standing still when everyone else moves on seemingly easily.
Hope you're doing ok. Pregnancy announcements are truly the salt in our wounds.

I hate weeks like that. I have had many. My work has 9 pregnant women. NOT FUN! There has been a lull in announcements over here for me. I am sure that must mean I am about to be hit.

IT SO SUCKS! I am so sorry.

I have also had quite a few of those weeks. I know how hard it is and how much it breaks your heart - and on top of having your period! It's just NOT fair! I am thinking of you and sending prayers your way!

Ugh - when it rains it pours. 3 in one week is really rough. Hang in there.

I found your blog through some others that I visit regularly. Wishing you lots of luck.

I'm sorry you're being tested right now. If you'd like company, I'd love to join you. I've heard several announcements lately, too, some of whom for people who have no business having children. Sigh. I wish you strength and patience during this time.

It must be the season! I had 3 or 4 announcements last week alone. Pregnancy, births or finding out a gender emails!! Why do we constantly need to be tested like this! Like we haven't proven our strength yet this far? Right there with you! IT SUCKS!!!

CAM said...

Yes, we are tested it seems daily. I feel like I walk around with this defensive wall up around me b/c I am afraid of what news people have to share. I have five people pg at work and it is almost too much to take everyday. We just have to know in the back of our minds that our time will come too...somehow...someway. We have to be positive or we'll be lost.
Try to keep smiling - :)

Awe...I'm sorry. It just sucks! Sucks! Sucks! Stupid AF.

Ann said...

Ugh. I hate pregnancy announcements. I have two people in my life who may be announcing in the next couple of months, and I'm absolutely dreading it.

Loren said...

Can't they just keep those announcements to themselves?! We'll find out soon enough!!
:( I'm sorry.
Also sorry for the no-commenting-on-my-part lately..hubby's laptop was refusing to unsign him from blogger and I couldn't comment! Errgh.
