A New Day

The sun is out and shining on the gorgeous autumn leaves.

Are you bored of reading about this yet? Yes? Close your browser now ladies πŸ˜‰

I feel like I’m on the home straight now. Just a few more days, and with my nice predictable cycle, spotting could start atΒ any minute.

Yes, at any minute I could find out which way my future is going. I’ll be so glad to have confirmation, to finally see the finish line.

A few months ago, my brother said to me I should just never use birth control and maybe one day I’d get a nice surprise. Now, this might be the right choice for some, but I am really far too much of a control freak to do that. Can you imagine, waking up at age 43, and finding out that you’re pregnant? It’s not so much the age, it’s the fact that my boys would be 9 and 8 and there is no way I’d want to go back to the beginning again. I always wanted my children close together in age, so it’s always been now or never.

But it’s OK. Never isn’t always such a terrible thing.

Besides, what would I do with all the baby stuff in the loft? I could open my own branch of Babies R Us at present and I really don’t want all that sitting over my head (physically and metaphorically) until I hit menopause.

So, onwards, onwards, onwards.

Besides, you all really want to read about something other than TTC by now, surely πŸ˜‰

You know I’m a huge over-sharer so as soon as anything happens I will let you know.

  1. I’m hoping the transition is gentle on you. πŸ™‚
    BUT, I have to say, it was awesome to get to start over when my kids were 11 and 7! Even though I always wanted mine close together in age too, it obviously didn’t happen. It has been a HUGE blessing to have their help and love with a new little one. πŸ˜‰
    That said, I would like to get the show on the road if we are to have another! Been ttc for 13 months now! Blah

  2. i could list you a whole heap of friends who thoght they were unlucky as they didn’t get to have theirs close in age and now think they are soooo lucky. Andrea, one of them has a 17 year old and then had to wait 15 years!!! for Pearl and now she is 8 months pregnant (so a 4ish year difference between the last two)
    But she wouldn’t have it any other way.
    I think this is it – when it happens it happens and you roll with it and well, they are made with your ingredients, you and the kids love them whatever the age differences πŸ™‚
