I am 27. Today it hit me, we have been ttc since I was 25 I remember at the time thinking 'I am going to be a mummy at 26!', and saying to my husband 'how cool would it be to announce our pregnancy at Christmas!'.... I even worked out how I wanted to do it. Needless to say it didn't happen. Another year later, and another Christmas without an announcement. So I am definitely not going to be a mum at 26, and I now only have 3 months to be one at 27. When growing up I have always set myself targets of things I wanted to achieve by what ages. A mum was by the time I was 27. I don't think it's going to happen. I know some people will say 'i still have time on my side' and I guess I do, but it doesn't make it any easier, or hurt any less. Today is not a good day.
