Do You Have Any News?
I got asked that today by my great-aunt, the first time I've ever been asked that blatantly. I don't see or talk to that side of the family that often, since they live out in Ohio...the last time I saw my great-aunt was the month before DH and I started TTC. Apparently right about that same time, two of my cousins conceived with their new wives. The one that is just a couple of months younger than me is expecting his second baby in a few months, too, so that's someone else who has lapped me. I did everything sooner than Jared. I was born 3 months sooner. I graduated high school and college a year earlier, since his birthday was enough later to put him in a different school year. I got married sooner. But not only did he have a kid before me, he had kidS before me. Before I could even get within sniffing distance of having one kid, he has two. And I get asked if I have any news in the same breath that I get told about how wonderfully fertile the rest of my family is.
