Is it that time again? Really? Time flies when you don't have a little one to watch grow up and to mark the time. I remember when I was a little girl my grandma said, "When you get older time accelerates until it seems you're having breakfast every 15 minutes." I'm not quite there, but I understand what she said.
I've been at this TTC thing since 2006, but only got doctors involved a couple of years ago. For my full, detailed timeline, check out the tab above titled "The Journey so far" - sorry to be lazy, but to retype the whole thing would take pages!
Tomorrow I have my next ultrasound (at 8 weeks, 4 days). I'm super nervous, as we've never been this far in the process. Plus things are very busy at work. I'm trying so hard (hate that word "try") to keep my stress level down.
Oh, and an update on Mr. Jem's job interview from yesterday. They offered him the position. Now to decide if it's the best thing for our family. The pluses: it's in an industry that Mr. Jem is very passionate about (sports), it's a sales job, which means he can make money. The minuses: it's a start-up, 100% commission and initially no benefits. Does this make sense for him to take? Could he work there for three months and still apply for bigger places with health insurance and other benefits, but from the better position of actually having a job?
I'm really proud of him for getting this offer and I know he feels really good. But is this job the best thing for our (growing) family?
Is a bird in the hand really worth two in the bush?
