Welp. Not pregnant. Boy do my shoulders feel lighter!
I just want to take a moment to thank all of you who replied to my post for your thoughts, perspectives, and stories that you shared with me. They meant so much, and were comforting and reassuring, which is what I needed.
In a really weird way, I think this was good for us. At least, we're turning this into a positive and growing from this experience. I'm the first one to admit that I am not the best communicator sometimes, especially when I'm really upset. The past two weeks, however, Mr Writer and I have been the king and queen of communication. These were some of the most rational and thought out "grown up" conversations we've had in a long time. All of this makes me realize that when the time is right and when it happens, we will be ready, and we will be okay.
