This is 40: A trip down Memory Street to the corner of Infertility Avenue
Over 2.5 years ago, I kept this super secret diary of my fertility treatments:
It's short, but so funny to go back to where my head was back then before we knew Mamie was coming. I daydreamed about what it would be like to take her to the beach! Guess what? I had NO FREAKING IDEA how wonderful and nerve-wracking absolutely everything would be.
And I can read those medical updates now knowing that they worked, but back then? It was a monster few months of fear and uncertainty. In fact, Nick might reread all this and point out that I was the monster.
Can you believe we're going to try this again? Remember how old I'm going to be this month? I would love to hear about all the women you know who had babies after 40! But only the ones who felt great afterward and didn't fall over dead from exhaustion.
