So, on Friday I got my first period since Bear and I started TTC. At the time, I blocked it out except for the practicalities of having to deal with it while I was out of town, since I was anxious about several other things.
Tonight, I did get to react, though. I didn't realize at the time what the impetus was for this, but at one point during a commercial break, Bear put aside his plate and pulled me in to hold me and say that he was sorry too. It turns out that he noticed a commercial about people looking at paint colors and he was imagining us choosing paint colors for a nursery. When he said it, I couldn't say the word, nursery, but Bear said that at some point we really will be doing that. I hope he's right.
He also said he didn't bring it up earlier because he knew how stressed I had been and wanted to let me push it aside until I was a little less stressed. How did I end up with such a wonderful man?
