Six Weeks

Today was a long day. Between work and a board meeting for a professional group I belong to, the day just dragged and I am physically and mentally exhausted.

It is also six weeks ago today that I had the procedure to end my pregnancy. I should be 25 weeks pregnant this week. Instead I am six weeks post procedure. 

I wonder if I will ever stop counting the time. I work in finance, and we are always looking forward to monthly goals/tasks (month end, quarter end, year end) and always looking at the calendar. So it’s natural for me to look at the calendar. That’s what I do. But I wonder when I am going to stop counting the time since this happened.

I saw a quote recently, most likely while I was browsing Pinterest – “Nature doesn’t hurry, yet everything is accomplished.” I am trying to be patient. Trying not to rush my healing or decisions, or make snap judgments. Healing takes time. I am trying to give the time, some time. Easier said than done. I guess that can be said for most things in life.

    Not sure if it's helpful or hurtful but I still count the time since each of my losses. In fact a year ago now I just found out that I was pregnant for the 3rd time. He or she was due December 22nd. I should have a 4 month old. Instead I'd later learn that I'd have my 3rd and sadly, not my last miscarriage.

    It's not hurtful, I'm glad that I am not the only one! Sometimes It hunk I am going crazy. I guess it's natural, how else would we mark the passage of time with no physical changes or no live baby to watch grow? It's only in our minds now.
