The night before, I spoke with the producer and she told me they wanted to bring up some fertility “myths” or topics that are not discussed enough – and they wanted the doctor and I to give commentary. The topics were related to age, food, supplements, etc. I was a little bummed, because I was hoping I could talk a bit about the emotional/spiritual aspect of infertility.
Wellllll…..something cool happened. During my conversation with the producer, she wanted to hear more about what my journey has been like. I filled her in. 🙂 I told her that I actually feel grateful for the experience because I have learned so much. She couldn’t believe it.
The next morning I got an email. She said they decided to change the show!! They wanted to have me share a bit of my story – and share about how I’ve been able to be at peace. Bam. I was relieved. To me, that part is what matters most. I couldn’t believe they decided to change things around.
And then…what to wear?!? Is it just me or is it always such a task to figure out what wear? It’s actually not my favorite thing to do. I was so happy to have my new scarf handy. But I wasn’t sure if the studio would want me to wear a scarf on camera…
So I threw my old standby flower in a bag as a back-up accessory, just in case.
I was so lucky to have Danny snuggle me tight that morning before he went to work. He gave me the sweetest “I believe in you” pep talk. That man has a gift of saying things that you can feel in your core.
It turns out the doctor and I were patched into the show from separate locations. And I sat in a dark recording studio staring at this…
Then I heard Kyra’s voice through my ear piece. She was super kind and asked us each a few questions. The whole thing was over in like 3 minutes – so really not much time at all. Though I hope I said something good. At least I know the doctor liked it 🙂 At the end, I think he actually said to me: “You are my hero!” Is that not so sweet? I can’t wait to hear how it all turned out. I’m told it will air on Friday.
P.S. Afterwards I went downstairs to Whole Foods, a store I could spend hours in. For the first time today, I realized I probably wouldn’t be able to peruse every aisle like I do if I had kids in tow. haha. I guess going to the News interview would have been an ordeal in itself, too. I seriously have so much freedom right now. How different life will be with kids. How do you moms make everything happen? Do you get baby-sitters? Have regular nannies or have family nearby? Or do you have baby-sitting swaps? Or maybe you manage it on your own? I’m so curious about what works for you all.
