Today we went to my doctor’s office to have a routine ultrasound. We were eight weeks six days pregnant, but now we are not. But here is the thing, it wasn’t just a routine ultrasound because our progress towards creating a family has been fraught with pain and strife, and today, unexpectedly, we find ourselves Returning To Go. I do not get a Get Out of Jail card, nor am I allowed to collect anything on my way there. Just Return To Go.
So, four hundred twenty-four days after officially beginning our ttc journey, we are Returning To Go. The fun thing about games is that you get to opt out when things are no longer fun, but that isn’t an option today. Or any other day, for that matter. Today marks another day in our journey of love, longing, and infertility. We are starting at Go.
