Today I'm sharing something super-personal...(hopefully you won't mind)...today I need to talk about menopause...(awkward). First let me set the scene...I am 44 years old....with two sons (ages 18 and 21)and a husband that I've been married to for 25 years. Tomorrow our youngest moves out to go to university...and this week, I bought a pregnancy test....(I know..right). Anyway I will save the drama and tell you it was negative, which was quite a relief, I kind of knew it would be because Scott had a vasectomy 10 years ago but there is always that 1%...I did not want to be that 1%.
So considering my body decided not to have a period in August...and is not pregnant...the only other possibility I can consider is menopause. I'm trying to wrap my head around this new development. I have read every online forum on menopause.....yikes, that did not make me feel better at all. So I'm appealing to all you wise ladies out there....when I was pregnant I read "What to Expect When You're Expecting" from cover to cover....now what to I read?
Not really wanting any more children...but not really wanting menopause either...
