Murphy’s Law no. 1386

Rule no. 1386 – When you want something very badly that you can’t have yet, everyone around you will have it.

There are very few people who know about my baby plans.

One of these is my best friend since we were 8, Elia.

Elia and I went shopping on Monday, down to the outlet malls,  where we saw, not one, not two, not five, but twenty-six different pregnant women walking around shopping.


Thanks for the reminder universe.

But, wait… That’s not people I know.  Can’t just leave it at that.

Two more pregnancy annoucements.

One from my aunt whose doctor told her she couldn’t have kids, and she’s been married a whole two minutes and is now pregnant.

My turn to start trying is only 70 days away (YAY!), but I would kind of appreciate it if the universe stopped throwing pregnant people in my path in the meantime.  It’s hard enough being ‘patient’ without baby bumps mocking me at every turn.

p.s. I’m thrilled for my aunt, and all my friends.  And, I’m enjoying my pregnancy-free, baby-free time… But, just thought I’d make a comment on how annoying Murphy can be, haha.

  1. Totally agree! I’ve been to two baby showers in the past month and have two more coming up. Congrats to your aunt, that’s awesome. We’ll be trying again this month.

    • Haha.. You should see my cong… We’ve got 35 kids under the age of 5.. I’m surrounded by babies all the time. It’s actually the first time in 7 years that we’ve had a 2 or 3 month stretch without someone being pregnant. At one point there were seven pregnant at the same time..
      Hopefully this month is your month. :) I’m really really hoping September is mine, but if it’s not, hopefully before the end of the year.
