30 Day Infertility Blog Challenge- Day 7

7. If you had gotten pregnant that first month you started trying, how would you have been a different parent? What changes have you made to your parenting style (either current or future) in the time you spent trying to conceive?
I definitely would not have appreciated my child like I would now.  I would have loved him or her to the moon and back, but would not have felt that appreciation that has been there now for the last three and a half years.  
My parenting style will be different now.  I know that having a newborn will be tough.  I will be sleep-deprived and my house will be a mess.  But when I wake in the middle of the night to feed my baby, I will remember all I have gone through.  When I am changing countless diapers and washing just as many bibs and onesies, I will be smiling.  To many, a baby comes as a surprise.  To me, a baby is the ultimate gift that I have been waiting, paying, and popping pills for.
