Happy Birthday to me

Today is my birthday. I'm 34. Next year I get tagged with "Advanced Maternal Age", if I ever manage to get pregnant again. I am determined that the news on Friday will not spoil my birthday. Determined I tell you. Tonight, I get to go out to dinner to the resaurant of my choice. I'll have cake. I'll smile. I'll enjoy today. Tomorrow is soon enough to dwell again.

Here from Mel's site -- I just wanted to let you know that in May of 2007 I was home after a Memorial Day weekend and my husband got off a call with X (as I call her) with that look on his face -- and at that moment when he told me I lost my mind a little -- we'd be trying for years (and would try for a few more before succeeding with IVF) -- and I screamed as I never had, keened, crawled in a ball in our bed and cried over and over.

I am so so sorry. I know that particular place of the stepmother trying to conceive. My new blog deals mostly with motherhood now -- but if you'd like to see the archives of my other blog feel free to contact me and I'll put your email on the list (because I wrote for years without X's knowledge I finally got paranoid after a friend's blog was outed and made mine invitation only.)

I hope you have a wonderful birthday.

Best to you,

I hope you had a great birthday party despite the news you received. I understand, a little. Dh's cousin was pregnant while I was going through fertility treatments -- I got this small square envelope in the mail one day & I didn't even have to look at it. I knew it was an invitation to her baby shower, & I KNEW it would be the weekend of my 40th birthday. And of course it was. I cried for two hours straight.

Would you believe I went to the shower? And came down with shingles (which can be stress induced) right afterward??

Be kind to yourself. (((hugs)))

Happy belated Birthday!!!

I was considered to be of Advanced Maternal Age with my son, for the most part things were not that different, I decided to do the 2 part IPS screening, once I passed that there was no other differences.
