Questions of Science and Progress

I loved this song when Coldplay released it as a single, however many years ago. Then I recently encountered this Aimee Mann cover and listened to it again more closely. Post-IVF, pregnant, and single-digit weeks away from finally meeting my baby, it has a completely different meaning to me now.

Thanks for sharing. I love that song and I love Aimee Mann. I'm so glad you're so close to meeting your little one. It's an amazing feeling... I'm sure you'll think it was worth the wait (not that you should have had to wait, but still).

Love it, Jen. (I started tearing up around the part of the heart-shaped snowball....sheesh.)

Happy weekend! :)

Thanks for sharing that version. This song got me through a lot last year. Infertility isn't the only awful thing that starts with "inf" that a couple can go through. If you look at my blog, there is a reason IVF #1 was postponed. I've never talked about it because I don't want to take my blog there, but it's still painful, and a nasty side effect of infertility.

On a lighter note, here's to hoping for just 6 more weeks and a day, cause that's full-term, and I know you want this over with!

63 freaking days Jen!!! Amazing!! And no, nobody ever did say it would be easy but they sure as hell implied it in my yr 10 sex ed classes.

I'm so glad you're almost there.
