Today is my 36th birthday. Yep, 36 years old. I’m okay with the round number. It feels…good. I’ve learned a lot in 36 years and one thing that remains is that I can never stop learning. I have to keep going, keep growing, keep learning. So, I’m excited about being 36 years old and still trying to conceive.
A recent conversation with my gynocologist has me declared as advanced maternal age. Really? I didn’t think that was the case at all. But apparently, once I got off that 35 year old mark, I became the Old Maid of conception. Lol. Good to know as I walk through this season.
Today, I have taken two pregnancy tests as I am now 4 days late. I made the mistake of grabbing a blue dye test (accidentally) and saw a faint line, but I cannot tell if it is an evap. So, remembering the fiasco of last month where we (now with confirmation) had a chemical pregnancy, I ran back out and got pink dye…but I haven’t taken it. My nipples are still sore. I’m still cramping. I still have a bit of nausea. These are still symptoms of PMS. So, we’ll see.
In the meantime, I’m having fun enjoying my birthday in peace and quiet. I pray your day has been perfect and blessed as well.
I’ll keep you updated on the tests!
