“So is this y’all’s first?” My eyes would shift to my husband, Colton. I’d hesitate, force a smile, and respond, “Yeah.”
It felt insincere and forced. It felt awkward and dishonest. When people ask that question, they likely aren’t anticipating a complicated question. Just a simple yes or no should do the trick. But our story is far from simple and our hearts are still healing from the loss of our previous miscarriage, even in the rejoicing of this new pregnancy.
If you aren’t familiar with the term “two-week-wait”, it is the time between ovulation and your expected period or otherwise potentially confirming pregnancy. Many women endure this wait with hope and expectancy, and at times feel loads of anxiety as they wait.
If you are all too familiar with this two-week-wait, my heart aches with you in your wait. I pray that the Lord gives you the desires of your heart and that you lean on Him solely in the midst of your waiting season. I pray that He fills you with a peace that blows your mind, regardless of what the result is after the weeks of holding your breath.
