I’ve received so many phone calls and emails expressing concern about my comments in previous posts, particularly the last one, about all my blood draws and daily injections that I thought I’d better put any fears out there to rest.
I’m not sick. I’m just trying to grow the family.
And for me, that involves some serious medical assistance as well as time. So, I’m going to need time–months, maybe–to try this and I’ve gone through it all before as my youngest son (now 9) was a doctors & shots baby. But let’s face it: I’m ten years older this time around and for women it does make a difference. Our eggs have shelf-lives and there are more complications as we hit our 40’s but I’m being hopeful, no, make that confident. If I can sell a book after 15 years of trying, I can make a baby. It just might need some time and attempts.
I won’t be giving any play by play updates until I have a big update because I hate being disappointed, and I don’t want to disappoint any of you who have guessed what I was trying to do and have sent me encouraging emails about staying relaxed and taking it easy and thinking positive.
But I will say this: I’ll take all the positive thoughts I can right now, and have no problem if any of you wish to picture me with a big fat belly and then a happy, healthy baby.
It’s funny how writing Flirting with Forty rewrote my own life.
Oh! And keep your eyes open for more Flirting with Forty movie news as Flirting with Forty is casting right now and the part of Jackie has been locked in. I’ll share the news of who they’ve casted, and when the filming begins, as soon as I’m able. I don’t want to step on anyone’s toes at Lifetime or Sony but this is exciting.
Heck, everything is exciting. Even my bruised belly and butt.
