30 and not pregnant, as far as I know!

Tomorrow I turn 30 years old. For many years I had this goal, that I would have my first child before I was 30. My mom had me when she was 27. I think more and more women are trying to have kids in their 30's. This is probably why infertility appears to becoming more common. We are living longer as a society, so I think it makes sense for women to wait to become mothers. I don't resent not trying to get pregnant in my early 20's. I would not have been ready to be a parent. In my 20's, I have gotten to go to Asia 2 times, and Europe 3 times. I have enjoyed seeing the world, and I wouldn't have been able to do that, with a kid most likely. Now, that I have seen the world, or a chunk of it, I want to experience parenthood.

I am actually coming to terms with the fact that I will be thirty tomorrow, and I am not pregnant to the best of my knowledge. It is tricky to know for sure when you don't have regular cycles! For this purpose alone, I think I am going to take progesterone to induce cycles, so that I am not constantly wondering.

I am in general just feeling better about things. I dyed my hair today. I am now a red head!
I had a mojito before class, and everything was just better after that!

I guess I am feeling more hopeful today.
