So the other day it hit me that I'm getting very close to a big birthday....two weeks from today I'm turning 30. Two years ago when I turned 28, it hit me really hard. I don't know if that year seemed big because that's how old my mom was when I was born, or what. But for some reason that year I really felt like I needed some purpose in life. I read a few 20-something books which helped to put things into perspective for me. The next year when I turned 29 I really prepared myself to feel even worse, but miraculously I didn't. At that point we were in our 11th month of TTC, so I'm actually surprised it didn't hit me a little harder. At the beginning of this year I was in a bad place, we knew we were dealing with IF and I was starting to get worried that I would never get pregnant. I was sure it would be really hard for me to turn 30 and still not be pregnant, so we decided to book at trip to Vegas for the weekend of my birthday. In April when I found out I was pregnant I was so unbelievably thrilled. I decided that I probably wouldn't have a great time in Vegas because I would be almost 30 weeks pregnant, so we canceled our trip and just decided to go somewhere closer to home. Somehow I got so swept up into this amazing pregnancy that I completely forgot that my 30th birthday was coming. Now it's just two weeks away and we're still finalizing where to go for the weekend. I've also started wondering if there are things I "must do" before turning 30. After some internet research, all the things to do before turning 30 checklists seem kind of pointless. Maybe there aren't things I "need" to do. Honestly, I feel like the past 2 years were spent so focusing on wanting to have a family and feeling that time was slipping away from me which was why I didn't like getting older. Now I'm starting to realize that as I turn 30, I'll be that much closer to finally meeting my baby boy!
So, is there anything you'd recommend I try to do before turning 30? I still have 2 weeks to fit it in :)
