Went to dinner with a girlfriend this evening-
...and this is how it played out:
Waiter- Would you ladies like wine or cocktails?
Me- Hmmmmmmmmmmmmm let me check the drink menu
GF- ummm no thanks just water with lemon
Me- I'll have a glass of Riesling please
(waiter walks away)
GF- I wanted to tell you in person....I'm pregnant!
Me- (Gasp)...(mind swirling)...(heart fluttering)
Me- Oh my God, congratulations! (after I regained the power to speak)
I felt like I was going to cry but I didn't...
I truly had to talk myself down from shedding tears in a public place...
I felt my mood changing but I kept my composure...
Turns out she had an IUI last month (her first) and it worked!! It really was great news! She deserves it. She has been wanting to be a mother for a long time and I know she will be a great one! I was excited for her and even though I'm sad/anxious for myself, I was able to separate the two emotions. I guess that's a start right?
