A note for next time

Just a quick reminder to myself...

Self, do NOT, under any circumstances, sign up for any free baby newsletters or products if/when you get pregnant again. It might seem like a good idea at the time - it might even help you think positively about your pregnancy - but just remember how horrible it was getting diaper coupons and formula samples in the mail four months after Thomas died.

I know it's going to suck, self, but pregnancy will never, ever be what it once was for you and what it is for most women. You've lost faith in your body and you don't trust your prayers anymore, so believing is going to be hard. In fact, believing is going to take all your energy so don't waste any of it signing up for baby freebies until that baby is home safely in your arms.

Trust me, self.
