Hoppy Easter!

I hope everyone has a very Happy Easter!

I am having a weird Easter this year.  No Little Guy (he's with his Dad 200 kms away) and no Mama (she's with her Mum and the rest of her family 2000kms away). So it's the Big Guy, his two kids and all the rest of TBG's family for Easter for me.  And that feels wrong and weird and completely un-Easter-ish. We're going for a picnic in the park - all the family TBG's Mum could muster including one of the SILs and her new baby. I love the SIL and I love the new boy and I will endeavour to steal as much baby love as I can.

But oh!

They started TTCing just after us, had a miscarriage and finally got pregnant. So I don't feel anything but love towards this new boy and his parents.  But for myself, there's jealousy and sadness and wistful longings.

Dr's appointment for us on Tuesday the 6th. I wonder what his recommendations will be...

Thanks to Coco's boss's daily inspirational and to Coco for passing this along ... I really like it.


  1. Happy Easter, Pundelina!

    I hope that you will have a wonderful time with your family and that you would have awesome amount of babylove.

    I hope your doc does have a ray of hope for you. All the best!

  2. That's a great quotation. Very fitting for what we're all going through. I hope tomorrow is a good day and that the baby time is more good then sad (though those seem to arrive in equal measures when other people's babies are in question). Happy Easter, P!

  3. That quote made me smile. It's so true, I may just steal it for my blog! ;)

    Yeah, Easter is kind of weird for us too. We normally go back to R's mom's place but since our beta was yesterday, we kind of decided in the beginning of the cycle, we'd just stay home. I didn't want to be busting at the seams to tell someone or be angry that this cycle didn't work...yet again. I'm happy we made the decision early on. Thanks for all your support during this cycle! It means a bunch to me. Thank you! ;)

    Have a Happy Easter! Oh, and congrats on turning in that thesis! Way to go! Do you feel smarter? ;)

  4. I LOVE the quote, and the cartoon made me laugh!!

    Thanks so much for the link to that sperm article. EXACTLY what I was looking for. Now I know where to direct my positive thoughts!

    Hope your Easter is wonderful, even without the full family, and I'll send you the pasta recipe if it turns out to be any good...

  5. Happy Easter to you!

    Congratulations on handing in your thesis, too!

    Love the cartoon and the quote.

  6. Happy Easter to you, and congrats on handing in your thesis! I hope all goes well on Tuesday with the doctor - as you say, now you are unfettered and free of your academic responsibilities, so let's hope the Universe is listening!

  7. I hope you had a lovely Easter. I love that cartoon! Good luck tomorrow at your appointment. Thanks also for posting the encouraging quote. Easter is fun, but complete madness with the Mr.'s family. A picnic sounds like a wonderful option.
