I'm glad my parents are coming tomorrow. I'm ready to have more laughter in this house.

Sometimes this journey feels very lonely. Moment by moment you pray you're making the right decision, but you never really get an answer.

As soon as you get past one blood check, there's another right around the corner and you have to think ahead to that one. Meal after meal, day after day.

One big blessing has been meeting other moms in the D community. It helps to know there are others in the same situation, always willing to offer encouragement.

But it still feels lonely sometimes.

I am so glad your parents are coming too! Lonely is so draining! You never have to feel alone though...we will always be here to lend an ear. :)

I know that lonely feeling...I have felt it many times...the beauty of it is this, we are not alone.

Especially with this amazing D.O.C.

I am so thankful that you joined us d-mommas because the support and understanding is so uplifting! I hope that your parents bring you that extra laughter and joy, it helps to have that "real-life" support there in your presence!

Enjoy the family and (((hugs))) to you...you will never be alone in this :)

You're right, it can be lonely. Especially when it's 2 am and it seems like the whole world is asleep but you. But I take solace knowing that somewhere, another D-Mom or Dad is doing the exact same thing as I am.

Hope you have a great visit with your parents!
