DH and I have only been TTC for a couple months now. Well, technically, this is the second month we've been trying. The first month (last month), I went ridiculous when it came to testing. This month, I'm just so emotional and crabby about it. Probably a little discouraged also. It was so easy for me to become pregnant when I wasn't trying and then now, it's a whole new world.
I'm sure other mamas have been through this, I'm just needed to let it out. (And DH just isn't getting it.)
DH finally stopped freaking out after we both agreed to start trying and really got excited about it. Both of our previous children were unplanned so it wasn't exactly "working towards something".
Before I found out I was pregnant with DS, I was scheduled to go to my OB to see if I even could get pregnant because BD and I weren't careful whatsoever and it really took a year and a half when I was on BC for eight months, four months was prior to when he and I started dating.
I just got off of Paragard in November. Non-hormonal. My OB said that I should have become fertile immediately.
I understand, although I know it's easier said than done you eventually just have to go with the flow. The more you focus on it the more stressful it becomes. It tooks us 3 years to get pregnant with this one. It's frustrating, discouraging, depressing. But honestly I kind of gave up and it just so happened that we timed it right last month without really trying to. I've just came to realize focusing on it so much wasn't changing the outcome and wasn't going to make it happen faster it was just making it stressful and unpleasant. But don't get me wrong, there were A LOT of ups and downs and times where I couldn't take my own advice. But it will happen. Sending baby dust your way!
Thank you, I appreciate the advice (and baby dust).
Nobody really knows we're actually trying and truth be told, I know for a fact that my mom wouldn't be one for advice because I was her only and her "shot in the dark". As far as anyone is concerned really is that we both want more children. Guess it really is just a waiting game.
