My coworker friend L and his wife C have been trying on their own to get pregnant for over a year. L said if they don't get pregnant by June, they will go to a fertility clinic to try to speed things along (I think they could do a few things on their own more than just have sex and hope for the best, but whatever). My other coworker friend I is a single man who is planning to use a surrogate to have a baby. The process will take about 1.5 years. So it's possible that two friends of our will have babies around the time that we do, which is kind of cool. Also, our nonwork friends A & C are giving birth in April to their first, so their baby will be over a year old by the time ours is born, which is still cool. We're learning a lot from them. So we're basically going from not having any friends who are parents to having a handful who are expecting/trying at the same time we are. It's nice to have people to talk to.
