[Enter Title Here]

I struggled to find a title for this post and could only come up with these intelligent tidbits:

Blah/Ugh/Spare Me/Gag Me/Whatever/Boo!/Piss on It/ Fuck 'Em/Suck It/Give Me A Break/Selfish Bastards/Enough Is Enough/Get Over Yourself/I Just Want One!/Can You Spare One or Two or Three?/Showing Me Up/Rubbing It In My Face/Go Home!/ Show Offs/Do You Believe This?/Keeping Up With The Jones'/Soccer Mom on Crack/Polygamists Practice Big Love/:-P/I Might Be Sick/


Which one do you like? I'm kind of partial to "Suck It!" It's simple and to the point.

I'd go with:'I just want one', but 'suck it' is a close second. did you hear about the Duggers? they are this Christian family that have been followed on tv. anyway, the mom just announced that she is preggo with her 18th.
give me a f**cking break! I JUST WANT ONE!
lol.

I too just want one. And I'll make a deal never to put one of these stickers on my car if I am granted my wish....

Let me just start by saying that I know where you are coming from. I too experienced infertility, heartache and loss before being blessed with a successful pregnancy and healthy baby girl.

I was just thinking how sad I would feel if someone that didn't know me looked at my precious daughter or family with feelings of bitterness or anger (without knowing that becoming pregnant with her was one of the most trying times of my life). Now granted, I don't have any family decals on my car or anything, but I have to admit that I am the most proud mommy in the world (just like you are) and I certainly wouldn't want anyone saying "spare me", "gag" or "show off" when I talk about my miracle.

I pray that you may find peace everyday and trust that you too will be blessed with a third child (whom you will have a healthy pregnancy with and carry to term).

Anon- I'm just jealous because I don't have my own living children to dote on and decorate my car with.

And I certainly would be sad to know that someone felt bitterness towards me because of my family without knowing my background. But everyone has a story and everyone is entitled to their own opinion. This is currently mine.

Thank you for your prayers and for trusting that we "will be blessed with a third child". I sure hope you're right because I trusted and prayed and believed with my whole heart that the 1st and 2nd babies would make it and they didn't. But I am glad that you finally got your daughter. Perhaps when I do have a living child to care for and love I will feel differently.

Until then, thanks for stopping by and offering your opinion.

I do understand your feelings. I learned SOOOO much during my pregnancy about God's faithfulness and perfect plan/timing for my life. Pregnancy is one of the few things in life that you actually have no control over at all. I had to completely surrender my body, my unborn child, my fears, worries, thoughts of miscarriage, etc. over to God every single day. Man, do I only pray to have that kind of faith and trust on a daily basis with EVERY aspect of my life (even things that I could very easily control myself).

Thanks for welcoming me! I wish I could take your heartache away.

Keep trusting...

Love,
S

Aaahhhhhhh!!! Part of me wants to say "Oh, how sweet that they are so blessed." The other part...let's just say "It's not fair!"

I like "suck it". Chel.sea Hand.ler says that all the time :)
It is too the point.

Wow, I come from a large family, I'm the oldest of 6. I honestly in this day and age don't get why people still do that (sorry if I offend)
