Today was hard. I smiled and tried to be happy, but everyone could see how hard it was on DH and I both. His brother and his wife had their first today. As hard as it is, it reminds me of why I've been willing to endure all the pain. For one of these:

Gage Alexander 8 pounds 10 ounces 21 inches long ~ Born this morning via scheduled c-section

Of course it also reminded me that I should be holding my Norma right now. Some days I wonder if I should just give up on ever holding my own baby again. Other times, I know I will NEVER give up until I have my baby in my arms. And sometimes, like today.......I feel both at once.

My DH's brother and his wife also just had their first so I can understand your feelings. It was a VERY tough day. Pretty much put me back into the emotional turmoil I had right after the most recent miscarriage. Not because I wasn't happy for them but because I so badly wishied it was us. It's been a week since their birth so I'm starting to feel better and getting back to focusing on us and TTC soon. Hope you start feeling better too.

I think part of the reason it was so hard was because it was less than a week after the EDD for Norma. All I could think about the whole time we were at the hospital was, "this should be me. I should be here having a baby." Today is better, but Mommy and baby are still in the hospital. We'll see how it goes when they get home and I am seeing them daily.
