Not this time

After a week of speculation, a test confirmed it on a Friday morning.

Immediately, we implemented the low-sodium diet. We bought a book for fun. I began contemplating the playlists. We began the early planning and talked about how our lives would change. We began fantasizing about the creative ways we should share the news. And we found it funny that, just like the last time, all at once several of our most admired celebrities, closest friends and acquaintances were making their own announcements.

But on Wednesday afternoon a doctor told us it wasn’t meant to be.

We walked the rest of that day in a daze. Barely speaking. Questioning what we did wrong. And where we go from here.

This afternoon, we knew it was over.

It’s a terrible, indescribable feeling.
