If one more person says:
"Oh just you wait"
"This is only the beginning"
"You have no idea what you are in for"
"Say good-bye to your old life"
or any other negatively toned comment towards being pregnant/having a baby, I will seriously punch you in the throat. It gets effing old.
We had to years to "just wait". By the time Abbey gets here, it will be 4 months short of THREE years.
This is our new "beginning" and we are very much looking forward to it.
Of course we have no idea what we are in for. We know it will be hard and trying at times, but it will also be much wanted and prayed for.
And as for our "old life"- it was amazing, we had amazing times. But our "new life" is going to be so much more amazing than anything we experienced with just the two of us.
So keep all the negative comments to yourself. If you don't have anything nice to say about being pregnant/having children, save them for the next unhappy person who is willing to share in your misery. Because this optimistic, naive infertile and her husband are much looking forward to everything having a child entails.
