These days I'm feeling very much like an elephant. Not just because I'm as big as one and feel as though I'm carrying a baby elephant in my tummy. But because an elephant's gestational period is 22 months. I have been pregnant for 19 of the past 21 months so far. Yup.
To be more accurate if I peed on a stick it would be positive but some of that time was actually the process of miscarrying or having surgery to remove retained dead pregnancy tissue from the uterus - if you want the TMI details. So the hormones were still there.
So I feel like I have been pregnant FOREVER waiting for this Little Man.
This has been a looooong process - how many days I've spent throwing up, recovering from surgery, getting poked with needles for IVs and meds and blood draws. But I knew in my heart God had this child meant for us and we had to endure and have faith. There has been a lot of criticism & hurt, and he's not here yet, but I'm so close I can see the other side now. It's worth it.
