One mark of an infertile is how we count the passage of time. Days in your cycle, two week wait, days for the transfer, etc. once we moved over to adoption world, our time markers changed. Rather than counting in days or weeks, we moved into months. We got our match eight months into our wait.
But now that we are so close to passing the great divide into the life of parents, something reminded me that even when we finally reach our dream of having a baby, we will always be part of the IF community. You see, I am back to counting my time in weeks. One week until birth. 2 or so days until termination of parental rights. One week revocation period. This is, then, one of the biggest two week waits we have ever endured. One week from today, my life gets crazy and exciting. And I'll be on pins and needles for a week after that.
