Small Victories

Filed under: Infertility — by lhoham @ 2:39 pm

I went to the farmer’s market yesterday. That’s right. And I liked it. You all must be so proud. You see, last year, after my first m/c, I stopped going. It was just too painful. There are kids EVERYWHERE. And babies – you can’t spit without hitting a stroller. It was sad for me because I love the farmer’s market. I live in a beautiful small town where everyone knows eachother and you can catch up with neigbors and friends while enjoying homemade treats and stocking up on veggies, flowers, home goods, and jewlery. But, after losing the baby, I couldn’t face it. Until yesterday. I made my maiden voyage down the hill to our little village in the valley and I enjoyed every second of it. Well, okay, there were still a number of strollers and, gasp, pregnant women (the nerve), but, I delt with it. I figure one day, when I’m pregnant with a baby that wants to stick around, I will want to parade my fat self with glowing skin and a smile the size of Texas all around the Village Green takimg in the beauty and comraderie of the farmer’s market. So I get it – this is their time. I’ll let them be fat and happy now and when it’s my turn, others will let me. But for now I’m going to enjoy the small victories.

  1. Congratulations . . . that IS a big victory! You just have to remember that you can do it, and try not to let the reminders sully your joy. It sounds like the trip to the market was beautiful – makes me wish I went, too!

  2. I didn’t know…I am however very proud of you. You made it in the park for a long time, not saying a thing. To me you seemed to enjoy the day. I hope we can share more Saturday mornings in the park watching life as we know it.
