DTTC

This might sound like a strange thing for someone who is 17 and a half weeks pregnant to say but recently something that has been on my mind a lot is TTC (trying to conceive). We have had our children fairly lose together and we started TTC more or less as soon as my fertility…

The lowdown on babymaking…

No, I’m not pregnant.  Yes, we’re still trying.  I decided I was getting a little crazy about planning everything and not just enjoying it.  So, now we’re sort of NTNP (not trying not preventing), although I am paying attention to when I’m expecting to ovulate.  The last couple of months, I got really bummed seeing…

Visiting the "Vodoo" Doctor for Infertility.

Okay he’s not a voodoo doctor- he’s a homeopathic doctor that my mom goes to. I’m in the land of “looking for options to get better, not just take Clomid and get pregnant” in terms of my PCOS. So I made an appointment and went to see him. The first thing he did was something…

How Far Would You Go?

I’m emerging from the emotional hole I got myself into earlier this week. I expected it to a great degree, despite always having at least a tiny bit of hope. I didn’t want to spend the last few days driving myself crazy with wondering, so I took a pregnancy text last Sunday. Negative, of course….

Deserving A Baby

I know this girl. Actually I know two girls who, everytime I pray to get pregnant again, I can’t help but stop and ask that, if at all possible, they should get pregnant first because they deserve it so much more. I have a lot of experience praying for the chance to get pregnant. Back…

Strange Days and HPTs

The last few days have felt incredibly surreal. I am still waiting to wake up from this extraordinary dream. On Wednesday, I had what I could only describe as a really rubbish, rotten day. One thing after another went wrong, not least of which being the arrival of AF in the afternoon. I cursed under…

One of Those Days

You know how sometimes you just have a really rubbish day? One of those days where nothing particularly awful happens, but so many little bad things happen that by the end of the day you just feel totally devoid of joy? Well, I had one of those days today. It started at 3 this morning….

This will hopefully be my last post on this

I don’t like to be a moper.  I like to deal with things and move forward.  When I had my ectopic loss back in 2007 I grieved for a while but then I moved forward.  I don’t know if my way of dealing with things is healthier or less healthy than someone else’s but it’s…

Thank you to all my friends at JustMommies

For helping me get through a very difficult day.  I didn’t blog about our FET (frozen embryo transfer) cycle.  We had our IVF cycle in December and then in March we did an FET cycle.  I didn’t want to blog about this because I knew this would be a stressful month and I just wanted…

To Be or Not to Be Done

I sit back and watch all of these BFP’s (big fat positives) pop up around me and I can’t help but feel that motherly urge to have another!! I’m in such a hard place right now because 3 is plenty, but I don’t feel done yet. I’ve always heard if you’re unsure, don’t do it…
