My mom just gasped at me using that word, but there's no other word for it.
It took us a year and a half and some fertility drugs to get pregnant with Mara Lin, and the same fertility drugs to get pregnant with Emily. Becca was a total God thing and the best surprise I've ever gotten.
Now, about five years after our first fertility struggle, I find myself in the exactly same place. And the surprising part is that it doesn't hurt any less this time.
In fact it might hurt more just because it hurts now, and 'now' hurts hurt more than 'then' hurts.
