Today is my last day of summer. As I write this, I'm waiting for our very last group of Freshmen to come in for the very last Orientation of the summer. Goodbye Summer, Hello School.
When I first found out that I was pregnant the most recent time, I had been so excited to think that I would probably be showing at this point, and all of my students would come back from Summer and be so excited for me in that condition. It didn't quite work out that way...though I do hope that they are still excited to see me. Oh well. Perhaps we'll get lucky next month, and they'll be able to notice the growth throughout the academic year.
So last month, we were still in the "trying but not trying" sort of mode as we were in that time between "two months" and "two cycles". Now that it's been officially two cycles, I guess you could say that we're officially "trying" again. I'm leaving it all in God's hands, but my husband's birthday is mid-September, and I would love nothing more than to give him a BFP for his birthday. But again, it's in God's hands, not mine. I can think of all these cute plans in my head, but ultimately, I recognize I have no control in the matter.
For blessings, I recognize that this summer has been nice. I sure wish that I had been pregnant all summer long, but in the absence of a pregnancy, I was able to travel and visit friends and family more than I would had I been preparing for a baby. The slow time of the year has really been a blessing, as I've been able to relax and work-out and unwind each evening. I just hope that I find just as many blessed moments as we head into the school year.
