I began my TTC journey in January 2005. It finally worked with the 5th IUI and along came Eliana! I started trying for a second (T42) a little over a year later, and was thrilled to get pregnant on the second try this time. Jacob soon joined our family! Not sure if I am done at two, but come along for my journey in motherhood. If you stop by, please leave me a short note! I like to know when I have visitors. :)

I miss her

I thought that it would be a good idea to start day care a week early for us both to adjust. We are starting slowly..only three hours today. I got there at 10:00, left at 10:30, and already miss her. Please tell me it gets easier...

All I can say is that it does get easier but never plain easy. You have to just hold on to the big smiles at pick up time.

Do you want the truth...or do you just want to feel better? I will say it seems like it gets easier, but then you have a day where you just can't believe you have to leave her...and you don't want to...but then it gets better again.

I know you'll get through it. I just wanted to let you know that I spent most of last night reading your whole entire blog...yes, the whole thing from start to finish! I just happened on it yesterday, while I was working! I did see the baby's picture on the current page, so I knew going into it that you did get a baby, though I had no idea if she was your biological child or if she was adopted. I finally got to her birth at 3:15 am and I have to say it was better than the last 3 books I read!

I am so happy for you. Congratulations on your beautiful baby girl. I really enjoyed all your journey, though I would have cried more I am sure if I hadn't already seen the picture at the beginning. Even so, I was so worried for you.

You have inspired me to start my blog and keep up with it. Good luck with the new school year. And don't worry about the baby, she will be just fine, she has an awesome Mom!

Hope it has gotten a bit easier over the week. I cried and cried and cried AND I work from home full time. I was so not expecting how hard going back to work was. In some ways it has gotten easier as Max has grown, but as others posted not as easy as you might think. Take care.

Yes, it gets easier, but there are still days where it rips your heart out. J is four now, and in preschool, and it hasn't been that long (like, less than a month) since he had a horrible drop-off day and I sobbed in the car halfway to work. But you do what you gotta, and you get big smiles and hugs and (eventually) "mama, mama, mama!" at the end of the day that almost makes up for having to leave.
