Studying the reproductive system like crazy for the last few days has made me glad that I learned as much as I did about it back when Mr. Polly and I were trying to have a baby. Most of the general hormonal phase info is familiar to me, so that makes studying more of a review and less of a giant hunk of brand-new information.
But it also makes me a little sad that it didn't work. And that we don't have any plans for parenthood now. We do want children, but don't have any real plans on when or how to make that happen.
I still want to adopt, I think. Especially since I'm not getting younger and still have several years of schooling ahead of me.
But remembering how excited we were back then makes me a little sad.
