Today I went to my doctor to follow up on some enquiries we’ve been doing this year. She told me that, despite having endometriosis (a painful condition often compromising fertility) all the signs are very positive that my fertility is good and if I want to try for a baby I have a comfortable 5 year window in which to do so. There are few words for this feeling. I had previously been given a ‘start trying by 30 or forget it’ window. (I turned 30 recently)
On the way home, to celebrate I stopped by Bunnings and bought flowers for my garden. Purple pansies, stock, foxgloves, poppies, all my favourites. They are useless, they offer no shade, you can’t eat them (mostly), but they make me smile. I’m so happy.
