It’s my birthday!!! As cheerful as that would be; this year it’s a little bittersweet. I’m 35. To me it seems as if it’s the cut off age for fertility. It’s written everywhere… when you are above 35 your fertility level drops. 35…the age… this age makes it feels like its final somehow.

I have so much to be thankful for… I have a wonderful husband, the most supportive and loving family, there is just so much love around me that it is an injustice to feel sad. This morning my dad called to sing me happy birthday… my mom telling me how much she loves me, a shower of kisses and hugs from my little nieces and nephews… My life may not be perfect; but it sure is close.
