... I'm off the pill which means I'm in TTC mode. Yikes!
If I follow the normal schedule (which I've always been a by the book period person) conception should happen around May 2. I'll be out of town the nights of Apr 30 and May 1 and will just be back home that night after a VERY long day of out of town work, flying back, then dance rehearsal. Soooo... don't know how much luck we'll have this month!
BUT... the gauntlet has been thrown. I'm nervous and excited about succeeding! I'm still in denial about having to give birth again and pay for twice as much daycare and deal with twice the amount of things to do at home in order to get my 2 kids/ complete family! But the idea of James as a big brother, and another little baby and little baby in utero kicks, and having another Team Green baby (another boy for a house of blue or a chance to do the pink thing?!) are really heart warming.
(This should be obvious, but no talking about me trying to get knocked up outside of our private group on FB please!)
Yay!!!! I am so thrilled for you guys!! I really hope it doesn't happen in May and waits for June...that way you are likely to have a March baby which is my birthday month. Good luck...you have had such patience waiting for your time!
I was looking at fertility calendars and realized I could be in as early as this weekend- yikes! Amy- it would be so fun to be knocked up with you again! (That somehow didn't come out quite right, hm. )
LOL, um, not so much... AF came in raging yesterday after 3-4 days of weird spotting. She's days early, so who knows what to make of it. Just early? Chemical? BC hormones still sorting out?
I'm not too stressed about it. First month I was traveling when I was most fertile, though there was a slim chance it might have worked. This month I never had any EWCM, though I was horny as all get out when I thought I'd be ovulating, but clearly nothing happened from that.
On to Cycle #3! I'm totally not stressed yet. I'll start getting concerned if we creep into Aug-Sept. I'm really hoping to avoid "birthday season" which in our family means EVERYBODY, with the exception of my FIL, has their birthday between the end of June and end of October. It's killer- so many presents and cards to get in that short few months. A March - May baby would really help with breaking up all the celebrations, but I can't plan around what Mother Nature has in store.
I think we'd just keep trying through summer/fall, even if it meant a b-day close to James and everyone else, because really, waiting until Feb next year would suck in terms of the gap between kids. If that's how it happens, so be it, but I don't want to purposefully stop trying to conceive because of 'birthday season.' Plus, you know, I'm getting old- 34 this August!
