This was the response I had been waiting for. I had just *gently* woven into conversation that if we happen to get pregnant this month, I would be able to teach until the holiday break and have enough days to stay on maternity for the rest of the school year. And DH – let’s refer to him as R – responded with a smirk and “Well, then, I guess March is going to be a fun month.”
This has, of course, led to non stop thinking, on my part, about making a baby. Instead of finishing lesson plans, or choreographing dances for this week’s rehearsals, I have visited endless pregnancy and try to conceive websites. I have mentioned the possibility of starting to try to way too many people, and I have already peed on a plethora of ovulation test strips.
So, rather than change R’s mind about starting this month, with too much obsessing, I decided to channel my excited, nervous energy into a blog. Here it is. And tomorrow is the first day of “March Madness…” let the fun begin.
