I Wonder

Source

I wonder what you would look like


Would you have my hair and smile


Or would you favor your daddy instead


Would you grow up to be an athlete


Or would dirt make you cringe


Would you read books all day


Or would you rather run instead



Source



Would your favorite color be blue


Or would it be pink, maybe both


Would you be a boy


Or would you be a girl


I guess I will just keep wondering


Year four and you're still not here


I am wondering about a lot right now


As much as I smile on the outside


I feel like dying every time I see that minus sign


Which means not pregnant, yet again


I just wish God would see fit to let my wondering stop


I really wish you were a reality that was attainable for me

Very nice poem about infertility! It's sad when things are not working properly; I know, I 've been there.

I especially love your first picture....very sweet!

I can't see the video in Canada :-(

Thank you for commenting kidscrafts, it really does get frustrating when the one thing you want more than anything is the one thing you really can't make happen no matter what you do.

Very moving poem, prettynutjob. I know how difficult it must be. My brother and I were adopted after my parents more or less gave up ... my sister was born less than two years later. Keeping you in my thoughts.

I just got off the phone with my 30 year old sister-in-law, who has great news...she is finally pregnant after 10 years, and then I read this.

Maybe a good omen? I hope so!

This is also a very good work. I am impressed with your talent.

An emotional poem. There is always hope and a rainbow in the darkest of skies. Great poem.

Speaking as a man, this great thought is not limited to fertility.

I like this. Thank you for sharing your personal innermost thoughts about the child you are striving for. A side note - as a woman who has recently miscarried her first pregnancy - these are the same thoughts I have been having about what could have been, I loved the way you lay them out in your poem - very moving.

I send you positive thoughts, and hope that you will soon have success. Also...'sticky baby thoughts/vibes" also.

I feel your pain. I know so many people who were about to stop trying who became pregnant. My thoughts are with you so keep the hope alive.

Did you ever try homeopathy or accupuncture? Sometimes it can really help. But the first step is always to know if you and your husband are both able to conceive. I remember that's what my doctor said at the time... finally the doctor gave us 5% chance to have a baby.... and we finally had 2 :-)

Thank you for commenting breakfastpop and for your kind words. Kidscrafts I am the one who can't have children my hubby can, he has some from a previous relationship, I have PCOS and I have tried just about everything but the acupuncture but I am willing to try it if there is a chance it might work.

Are you using milk product in your diet?

May be you should read this : http://bit.ly/14XFF3d

Try to find other sources as well about the dairy products and your condition.

Good luck!

Hi JustPretty:

The heart makes me wonder and the soul take its toll, but boy (or girl) you made me sad……you so deserve a baby moment with your wondering…..am hoping there are a few plus sighs in the future. Mind you a baby is not all its cracked up to be, sleepless nights, poo and goo goo goo whaaaa. So my empathy is with you experiencing those brutal moments because it makes you a better person. My hope is on your side and may the sperm be with you…….loved your lament and creative resolve.

Just beautiful and I can understand these feelings. Our daughter was born after 3 1/2 years.

Voted up and shared.

Awesome poem.

I suffered from infertility for 10 years. So I understand the heartache, the roller coaster, and the tears that accompany EVERY negative test.

In 2007 I was blessed with the opportunity to adopt my beautiful baby girl Bianca (5) and shortly thereafter I became pregnant with Megan (now 4.5) .

It WILL HAPPEN.

Best wishes,

~Becky
