Confession Time

on November 9, 2012

Sorry I haven’t been very present here lately. I’m freaking out a little trying to study for GRE and complete my grad school application. Plus, my dad and his wife are coming to stay with us next weekend so I’m trying to do a bunch of stuff around the house. I haven’t seen them since my wedding two and a half years ago because they live out in Austen and it is hard for us to make it out there when hubby doesn’t get any sort of paid time off.

I do have a confession to make. I spent hours last night looking at the maternity pictures of all of my friends with babies. Apparently, I’m an emotionally unstable person who likes to torture myself. I just sat there and looked through all of them and felt worse and worse about myself. Why the hell do we do things like that? I would say it’s like pouring salt on the wound, but at least salt cleans the wound. I feel like this isn’t remotely healthy, and I know I’m not the only one who does stuff like this. Who else out there looks at maternity pictures when it does nothing but upset you? Who checks their pregnancy milestones months after they’ve already lost their baby? What about reading baby blogs and birth stories? Now that there are secret boards on Pinterest, who has a baby board? Seriously, ladies, why? Why do we do these things? And please, please tell me that I’m not the only one who goes there…

On a lighter note, I’ve been nominated for the Liebster blog, and I’m working on my post for that. It’s taking me some time to answer all of the questions and think of some of  my own, but I promise to post it soon.
