For when Mother’s Day becomes too much of a trigger

My heart is a bit heavy today. But I think I will be fine. I am especially laden with self-doubt, guilt, and a reminder of things I lost. Exactly six years ago, we lost our babies, and despite not wanting to recall this date consciously, the devil did its thing. Plus, it probably didn’t help that it’s coinciding with Mother’s Day.

ca 2018: In the surgery room, waiting for my embryo implantation. Got pregnant this time again but will later lose the pregnancy entering into my second trimester. Was admiring the embryos.
