April 1. This year, no jokes were going to be played. But exciting news to share with all! It was 12 weeks and we were going to be able to share baby L with the world! It just happened to fall so perfectly. But now I see “IM PREGNANT!! (Jk!! April fools!!)” (I’ve seen three like this just this am) and it hurts. Because it is not a joke. It’s not funny. There are women out there who are struggling to get pregnant. There are women out there suffering from the loss after actually being pregnant. There are men and women out there that are absolutely heartbroken today as they long for a baby, their baby. Please, it is not a joke. My heart is heavy today yet so full as I celebrate my beautiful friend and her baby at her baby shower!!!
Please know that pregnancy is not a joke. It’s a life changing event and there are many many emotions that go along with it- happiness, fear, sadness to name a few. Please be sensitive to those around you who may be struggling silently. ?
