Happy heart

I cannot tell you guys how much this means to me. For those of us struggling with fertility, hearing something like this is some sort of relief. Marcus came home today from work, and sat next to me on the couch like normal. We began to discuss how taking vitamins would be a good idea so we could both become healthier. For those of you who don’t know, Marcus and I have this thing we have aptly named “the baby scale”. It’s pretty much a 1-10 on how he’s feeling about us having kids. I ask every now and again, and today I decided to ask. This is the very first time he has looked at me and said “An 8.” Apparently while scrolling through Facebook this morning while going pee, he had run across someone who was awaiting the arrival of her midwife. It clicked with him. This was his push into wanting to start becoming healthier and making a better go at this fertility journey. My heart just exploded with joy! Finally I don’t feel like I am the only one trying to make myself better in order to have a baby. Finally I don’t feel like I am alone. He made me so excited and so happy that I started to tear up. He realized in his words “You shouldn’t be the only one trying. I need to start too.” I just want to jump for joy and scream at the top of my lungs at the world because I am so excited. So we are going to start, and I am extremely excited about it. Thank you guys so much for all the love and support as always. Much love.
