I debated on whether or not Tom Brady would be leaving Giselle anytime soon and bearing children with me. When I realized that probably wasn't going to happen, I bit the bullet and took a big breath. I called my doctor.
Let me preface this by saying that that prior to turning 40, I was never the type to experience any angst about my age. My 20's were great. Turning 30 was no big deal, because I was so busy- married for 5 years and pregnant with my third child.
Because of my 40th birthday, I've been thinking a lot about this milestone and also reflecting on age in general. 40 seems like a pretty big and important number, although it doesn't feel how I thought it would feel.
