Come, Sisters, Come
Edge of the night, a campfire's light/ Come, sisters, come/ Magic of song, a place to belong/ Come, sisters, come/ Warmth of a fire, warmth of a friend/ Come, sisters, come/
Last night, LB and I had dinner with some "couple friends" of ours (as in, friends who are a couple and, in the words of one of the women last night, "somewhat normal" :-P). They are currently expecting their first child, and were thrilled to hear that we have finally started trying, too!
It's nice to have other people to talk with, who have done the same thing. In fact, through the evening we discovered we're doing exactly the same thing, down to the method of insemination - good to know it's worked for some people! All in all, they were full of supportive words and encouragement, which was nice to hear, and possibly even more excited than we are that we're in the 2WW.
It's also CD 39, making this one of my longest cycles ever (topped only by my student teaching quarter), so every time I go to the restroom, I'm steeling myself for my period to arrive. It's kinda crazy-making, and this is just our first try! I'm enjoying reading the blogs of other women TTC or expecting, and that is providing a welcome distraction from analyzing my chart or predicting what my temperature might be in the morning.
