Me and My Eggs Just Turned Another Year Older

February 18, 2008 at 7:35 pm 3 comments

I celebrated 36 years of living on this earth 2 days ago. I’ve never been phased by the passing years, until now. I know that going from 35 to 36 decreases the odds of conceiving. Weird that it’s just one day and yet I move into a different age bracket on all those charts that show the probability of having a baby in each age group.

I can accept the growing wrinkles around my eyes. Well almost, I did splurge on a lovely night cream for myself this week. I figure I’ve spent thousands on my ovaries over the past year. What’s $23 to help smooth away the effect of spending all those thousands from around my eyes!

And so begins a new year for me…

    Yes I did the same thing last month and I AM 11 years your senior. ;< Something about my “47 thing” gets to me because my oldest sister also with all her parts and several children ) told me this was the year she had to claim menopause. She IS ALL I have to go by because my mom had hysterectomy after my birth.

    The last time I saw her last June. She was STILL fanning herself. She was almost 53 at that time.

    Happy Birthday.
    Ignore the biological clock if you can. You are being proactive and in the world of ART you are still a spring chicken. But I get it.
    I am approaching the big 4.0. I feel so young inside, and healthy and happy and loved, which I didn’t always when I was younger.
