Bittersweet Day

So, today is our 2 year anniversary (together 5 1/2 years). I love my DH, but it really makes me sad that we still haven't had a baby. We started trying about 6 months before getting married and never in all my visions of the future did I expect what has happened in the past 2 years. The best laid plans...

I am so sorry that this day that should be happy holds a bitter sweet moment. Hopefully by this time next year it will be all joy.

Jamie, I understand the bittersweet feelings when those important dates come along and serve as reminders of the journey we never expected to be on, certainly not for as long as we have.

It stinks when we're not where we want to be. I'm really trying to let go and go the whole "it'll be my time soon" route, but it sucks waiting. :)

Lots of luck and babydust to you... Happy Anniversary!

I know I'm super late on this but wanted to send hugs and hopes that your anniversary was still okay despite the bitter part of the sweetness. The milestones like that are always hard to cope with.

The anniversary was good. We went to dinner and had fun, but still IF just looms. Right?
