No tears fall.
But they need to.
For my heart aches. And aches some more.
Another cycle, another negative pregnancy test.
How can this be?
Another season soon to pass, and we are still not able to tell our family and close friends that we are pregnant.
I am numb at this point of my journey. In my heart deep down, I just know I will have a child one day, for I feel as if my child is already here with me, I see their eyes, feel the softness of their eyelashes, hear their laughter in my empty house. But yet, another cycle goes by and nothing. What am I being tested for? What is God’s plan for us? I have always been told I have a great amount of patience… but this…. so much time has passed since our miscarriage. So much time. My patience is surely being tested. It’s been 20 cycles…oh my goodness.
Days like this I need to dig deep.
Deeper than yesterday, the day before that, and even the day before that.
Days like this I want to go into hiding. Hide from people with their growing families, hide from Facebook with the melodrama posts and endless flow of baby pictures and baby bumps, from busy parks full of meandering children about to play their first soccer game of the season. I just want to close my blinds, shut my door and hide from the world today.
For I feel like everyone who sees me- will be able to see right through me, right through to my soul. Will they know I failed again? Will they see the pain and heartache? Will they feel the bitterness forming on my heart?
And the worst part about all of this, at least at the moment, is that I still need to tell my DH that it’s a “no go” once again..Probably one of the worst parts of a failed cycle.
For me anyway.
He is always such a love about the bad news, but I know his heart hurts as well. And I fear that the question will arise, not now, but soon… “when will enough –be enough?” And how will I respond? Don’t want to think about that now, but it’s there on my heavy aching heart as well.
Now the tears fall. Large big rolly polly tears streaming down my hot cheeks.
I’ll be better tomorrow.
Back on my knees today.
But tomorrow I’ll be better.
I always am.
