s to SarahJen. I'm so sorry, mama.
s to mommy_in_chaos too.
To add to the 'why is this stuff everywhere?' conversation - last night I was at rehearsal and we were planning the schedule for the next few weeks. One of our dancers mentioned that her birthday was Nov. 25 and that she was turning 26. I mentioned that I was turning 27 tomorrow (now today). She comes back with, did you know that 26 is the average age for American women to have their first child? I was dumbstruck... she had no idea that we've been trying, but what does one say to that? I made up some lame comment about doing my best to push it back, but really! One of my friends was there when this happened and said something later, like, wow, you can't catch a break, can you? Of all the random facts for her to pull out...
But it was better than having lunch with my mom and grandma yesterday. My mom was watching my cousin's 10mo baby, and loves to say something like, four generations all at one table. But just for birthday fun she added, Never thought that would happen, did we? What does that mean? Is she blaming me for waiting too long? Just bringing to light my potential infertility? She's mentally ill so I can't read too much into it, but come on.
While this is certainly not the worst day ever, and I'm feeling pretty good about this not being our month (I'm really just waiting for AF and trying to be calm) I did really think that I would at least be pregnant by the time I turned 27. I feel old. But that might have something to do with being at the studio for 7 hours yesterday.
