Back to work 


I’m not ready…but putting it off won’t make me any more ready. It is kind of the last ‘thing’ that I have to do for everything to be back to ‘normal’. 

I’ve been doing a lot of house chores the last few days preparing for life back on our regular schedule. And it has sucked. I’m so tired of going through the motions to ‘return back to normal’ after losing my baby. Don’t need the belly support band; it can go in the drawer. My What to Expect guidebook; in the drawer too. The calendar with appointment dates that has this Friday circled for my anatomy sonogram; ripped up. My Google  calendar entitled “Baby Nugget”; hidden on my phone.  I’m so tired of starting over and rebuilding….but I’m not getting rid of these things. This drawer represents my blind unyielding grasping faith that one day I will bring home a baby. I started the baby blanket and  I’m going to finish it. Many tears will be shed over it but I know that one day I will wrap it around my little one and be able to tell them what they represent to me: the end of starting over and my new beginning.

  1. Thinking of you on your first day back and praying for peace as you work through so many reminders of the life you’d envisioned. Your boys are surrounding you with love today.

  2. *hugs* My first day back was awful. Just to prepare you, take some time and cry it out, even at work. Go to a private office, bathroom, or even outside. I must’ve cried no less than 5 times when I returned. After the first day, it does get easier but I just remember the first day being the hardest.

    I still have faith you’ll have your take home baby. I don’t know why that is or even how. I just do. You have so much love for life and I have no doubt you’ll be an excellent mother to a little one.
