A blog about babies: the babies I lost, the babies I never had, the baby who made me a Mama.

Non-Babymoon in Vegas; or, The Art of Self-Distraction

I had a brilliant idea last night for something that makes me feel excited and optimistic even when work and school overwhelm me and the wait to be pregnant feels so long.

I've never been to Vegas and have wanted to go for a while. My husband hasn't been since his bachelor party over two years ago.

So...we're going for New Year's! My old roommate who now lives in San Fransisco is going to come with her boyfriend!

I can't wait to start researching hotel deals. It will be the perfect little getaway, something to look forward to and plan when all I want to do is obsess over fertility monitors. If I'm not pregnant by January, we'll have this fun trip and then come home and start the testing with my doctor. And if I am pregnant...that will be the perfect way to celebrate!

I'm so proud of my genius right now.

  1. What a fabulous idea-- this trip will be a treat, no matter what!

    As you mentioned, having something to plan and look forward to will work wonders for your outlook.

    And with the holidays coming up, life will help you focus on the family you have, while looking forward to the family that you will create.

    Hang in there, friend. :)
