When I first found out I was pregnant for the second time I scoured the internet for great deals on maternity clothes.
I wanted to be ready for my expanding belly and shrinking clothing. I wanted to have things to wear and feel good about my growing bump.
The bag of unused, never worn, neatly folded clothing now sits in a bag in my spare room closet.
This week I’m putting it up for sale.
My husband and I have gone over the pros and cons of having another baby. We’ve weighed the odds and discussed the time lines coming to the conclusion that we’re happy with one.
So with a heavy, but satisfied heart we are canceling fertility appointments, putting away ovulation charts, packing up wishes and silencing a dream.
It’s not happening for us and that’s ok.
We have a beautiful daughter who fills our hearts daily with her laughter, empathy, compassion, and brilliance.
Our little family is the centre of my universe and I’m happy to call it complete.
We got on this ride not knowing where it would take us but we found that it brought us full circle back to our one and only. We are one and done. Fulfilled and secure with who we have.
No more heartache, no more crying, no more counting months, no more sadness.
Just embracing who we are now and being satisfied with what we were given.
