Counting in weeks

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.


  1. I don't think IF will ever completely disappear from our lives. It just fades into the background a bit. It continues to colour our lives in unexpected ways.

    Hoping and praying that the next couple of weeks or so keep you so busy that you don't notice the time flying by.

  2. I hope time flies by! I am SO excited for you:)

  3. This is such an exciting time for you. YOUR LIFE IS CHANGING!! AAHHHH!

    From your previous post, you vented about the hotel advice is that over the next few weeks, there might be things like this to upset....and that is okay- let it bother you for 10 minutes...and then release it. This is such a wonderful time that you should not let anything (especially small things) upset you and ruin this time. I can't wait to hear more of this story.

  4. Hope the time flies by, Missy. We are all waiting on pins and needles with you!
