QOTD 10/2

When in your life have you had a "now or never" moment?

The most recent "now or never" moment was when DH and I climbed up to Devil's Bridge in Sedona. He walked out on it and I took his pic. I was too scared to walk over it. DH kept asking if I was sure I didn't want to go out on it and I kept saying no. As we started walking back down I thought to myself "if I don't do it I'll regret it." So we turned around and I walked out on it with DH and had someone take our pic. I clung to him for dear life though.

Good for you Meg. I couldn't do that. I hate heights. I went up in the CN tower and they have a glass floor, it is 3' thick and I had a panic attack just watching other people on it! I did go on it once with an ex-boyfriend, I held on and closed my eyes and was shaking so bad.

My now or never moment is right now with trying to get pregnant again. With my age it is definitely now or it is not happening. I always said that I would give up when I was 40. I hated that my step-mom was so old, I had 2 generation gaps with her. When I saw the GYN who diagnosed my endo and he said there was nothing stopping me from getting pregnant I though that ok, I would try once more but if anything happens that is it.... easier said then done. The most we are doing is 3 IUI cycles and then that is it.

I always thought I was more afraid of heights than I really was or I've gotten over it some. The hiking wasn't nearly as scary as I thought and I was in some pretty scary places for being my first time hiking. I also did the hot air balloon ride. Maybe my Sedona trip made me relax enough to get rid of some of my fears.

Sometimes you need to try something with TTC to know that you are done. It took my 3 IUI's and 3 IVF's to realize it wasn't going to happen. Some ppl it takes nothing. With what you are doing you know you've done your best and you will never look back and think "what if?"

My "now or never" moment came just this past year. We had always talked about moving out west (I've lived most of my life in the midwest) but could never get the details to work out. Well, my husband just sort of made it work. So we ended up moving to Colorado. It was a huge adjustment as we have no family or friends here. I'm a SAHM so I don't get the people connections through work like some. I'm still adjusting. But I love my new house and I love my family, so I'm adjusting. Still, the holidays are going to be hard this year...

Deciding to go to medical school one year into our marriage before I could chicken out. And a million times since then.
