Today the maintainence man came to my office to ask a question (our building is being worked on right now), and he saw a picture I have of myself and all of my nieces (and nephew) on my desk and asked if they were all mine. I laughed and told him no, I was expecting my first. Then he asked me a question I never figured a man would ask..."So, did you try long?". I was upfront and told him it took over 2.5 years and some medical intervention. He then proceeds to tell me that he and his wife tried for 18 years with nothing and opted against ANY treatment....they are now living childless.
So, in the middle of this conversation I realize that my TTC anniversary passed last month and I didn't even remember it. July 28th would have marked Thomas and I's 3 year anniversary of trying. Now, instead of that we are counting down the days until Cullen arrives and I couldn't feel more blessed; but I do think it is a day that needs to be observed because it was such a huge part of my life for so long.
So, I lift my glass to thing that has given me the saddest and happiest moments of my life.
