Hello fall

I'm beginning another cycle in the TTC race. Who am I racing? No one, I suppose, so bad metaphor. But in a sense, I am in a race for time. I'll be turning 35 this January (yikes!) and although I am happy to be older and seasoned, I freak out a bit about the age of my reproductive self.

Nevertheless, I am excited about the new season. I love fall, especially here in the deep south, where fall means less humidity, 75-80 degree days, 65 degree nights, music festivals, Halloween, and just more energy. I do miss the Midwest fall, though, with the changing of colors, apple cider, crispy winds, and pumpkin patches.

I expect to be at the OB this cycle for the annual and the next steps in my ttc. I was hoping for a free baby (hahaha, you know what I mean), but I think that may not be the case for us. As the season changes, so must our plans.

Your journey thus far sounds like mine did.

Hopefully this season will come with many new changes for you.

I never thought of keeping a running tally of expenses. I do keep all my receipts for tax reasons, but I just might steal your blog list idea. (Hope you don't mind!) Good Luck on this cycle.

Steal away! I'm a frugal person, so counting my pennies comes naturally.

Thanks for the well wishes, Dot!

I love your running total. I doubt that I will steal it as it would just depress me!!! LOL

I would love a free baby too! I have that insurance covers nothing. Why don't they want us to be happy and have kids? Best of luck to you!

I like the temperatures of fall as well. I wish you luck in your journey.

We seem to have a good amount of similarities in the reproductive department. Good blood work, good ultrasounds, good sperm...but no pregnancy! Not cool.

Good luck to you though! ;)

Hi there, nice to meet you. The change of seasons is sort of exciting - although we only had about 10 days of real summer this year!
35 is a GREAT age :)

I hope the fall season brings you a positive cycle! My birthday is in January too! And I love this time of year.

Good luck and happy ICLW.

I love the fall, too. I think it's my favorite season ... the colors and the weather are so perfect. Your baby may not be free, but he/she will be beautiful!! Rooting for you ...

Autumn is my favorite time of year, too! The colors and the weather are so perfect. Your baby may not be free, but he/she will be beautiful and well worth it all when you at last hold them. I hope your BFP is just around the corner.

More of a marathon than I race, I would say. And I had to stop keeping the tally bacause I didn't want to know, lol. Good luck!!

Kristin said...

Fall is also my favorite time of year. I hope the change in seasons also brings about a (happy) change in your TTC experiences.

Hi, CJ...just stopping by for ICLW. :)

It does feel a bit like a race, doesn't it?? Likely, I'm racing that biological clock that I keep hearing in my head. Very best of luck to you...hope that you have good news to report soon!

Happy ICLW Week!
