You take your joy when you can get it in times like these, and today my joy was, of all things turnips.
I got the app notification which now tells me how many weeks along I would have been, rather than tracking a pregnancy.
I originally deleted it to save myself heartache, yet I found more comfort in knowing than not knowing. It gives me, for this short time anyway, the knowledge of what they would have looked like, what they would have been, how big. What they would have been doing. I dont know what I’ll do after the app is no longer useful, I expect delete it again.
Anyway, today my baby would have been the weight of a turnip, I had the story of ‘The Enormous Turnip’ read to me as a child, and have always found turnips funny, and the analogy on the app made me smile.
