After almost three years of trying to get pregnant, two years of medical intervention, one surgery, lots of shots, two pregnancies, two miscarriages, and two D&Cs, I've been presented with the 'challenge' to take an entire year off from everything involved with infertility and trying to get pregnant and just be.
Whether I actually succeed is a totally different story. This is my chronicle of trying to let it go, if only temporarily. I've started by making a list of the things that I want accomplish on this sabbatical from infertility.
I am 33-year-old dame of many talents and interests. I am married to Mr. X, and despite my mysterious allure, live a fairly uninteresting life in the suburbs. I'm a professional working from home (and no, I do not work in my jammies). We have two kitties (aka Fluffy and the Bad One) of whom we take too many pictures. We are in the process of adopting a Golden Retriever. I'm an only child and I share abominally. I'm an Atheist and have been since I was very young. I do crossword puzzles in pen. I love color and my entire closet is organized like the rainbow. I love words, including knickers, zaftig, snorgle, peevish, and eccumenical. I love to read in the bath. I want to take up piano again. As for kids, well, I've been trying to get pregnant since May 2005 with medical intervention since August 2006. We've had two pregnancies and two miscarriages. As of now, I'm enjoying boozing, exercising, general loose living and all other previously verboten habits.
