Maybe Baby II

Alert readers may have noticed the reference below to an increased possibility of trying for a second baby.

Every since I made the appointment to see our specialist, I have felt my attitude slowly changing. As the days pass, my feelings about trying again seem to be becoming more positive. I think about having two little kids playing together, squabbling, and doing those sibling things - somehow, two kids seems more like a real family.

I passed our fertility clinic on the bus yesterday. I never liked that place. I always associated it with not wanting to be there, with anxiety, with the occasional stuff-up, and generally with bad news. During my treatment cycles, I increasingly got my Big Dude to make the calls. Somehow, I just didn't like dealing with them. When I brought my Little Dude in to say hello a few weeks after he was born, it felt like some kind of wiping out of bad memories. But still, when I've passed that office, I've kind of flinched a bit.

Yesterday, when I saw that familiar frontage, I felt different. I may even have smiled. Suddenly, they seemed less like somewhere I had to be when I didn't want to than like an ally - someone who might help me to get to where I want to go.

I think the odds of a Little Dude II (or Dudette I) are improving!

Good for you Emily- they are your allies, if that's what you want to do.

Glad to hear it Emily, good luck to you both. I'll be thinking about you this next week when I'm in your town for a few days.
