family planning

the beginning of the journey

This is the very beginning. I am 36. I have been married for 2 years... our annivarsary is in 9 days. Hard to believe. We have been discussing having children for almost a year, timidly and abstractly at first, and then talking dates and plans. My husband is in graduate school and I am a teacher. I never thought, in a million years, that I would be this old! I will be at least 37, if we are lucky and able to concieve easily. So, I have some fears that I don't think I would have had 5 or 10 years ago.
