So. here I am about to O any day. I need to be much more relaxed about things than I was last time. I think stress is the best form of birth control! LOL
JC and I have been married for three weeks now, and it has been a week since we came home from the honeymoon in Barcelona and Ireland. I fell in love with Ireland so much that we are going to pretend we conceived there and use an Irish name for the baby to honor what a wonderful time we had.
Well, I have been posting on the board for a while, but I don't think everyone knows my back story.
I have a DS from a previous marriage that went wrong. We never fought or yelled, but we fell out of love and it got ugly when we tried to keep it together. We gave it a good, long try, but in the end decided that it would be better for DS if we divorced. DS was about a year old at the time and we decided that instead of him growing up in a house without love between the parents, that we should both move on. It is unfortunate that it had to come after he was born, but I wouldn't give him back to correct all the regrets in the world.
He sees his dad every two weeks, so they can maintain their relationship.
After a while I met JC and cautiously began dating him. We grew closer and closer and I finally let him meet DS. From there our relationship just grew stronger. JC fell in love with DS, and that was extremely important to me. We bought a condo together, and after a year we planned to marry. We started TTC a month before the wedding, but AF showed up on the honeymoon. GRR.
And that, in a nutshell, brings us to today, where I am waiting to O on a rainy Saturday in June.
This morning we had a chance to BD! Wohoo! Come on eggie, drop.
We are in the critical time before O happens. I am trying to take a more relaxed approach this time, but I am starting to get a little anxious. This month, since I don't have a wedding to plan, I will have a lot of time on my hands. I guess my house will get really clean, my Thank you cards will get done, and maybe i can find a freelance job on the side to get that part of my career going. I am hoping that my newspaper will give me some freelance work so that I can stay home with the baby when it is time. At the very least, I hope I can change my schedule to the night shift. It would be hard, but since I will be up most of the night with a baby anyway, I might as well bring in a pay check! I will have to talk to DH about the fact that he would be in charge of all the night feedings!
I think the hardest part is not the 2WW, or the 3 weeks I wait to O. It is the three day temp confirmation wait! My temp goes up and we shag like rabbits, thinking this is it! Then I have to wait THREE WHOLE DAYS before I know for sure if I Oed. In those three days, we make shre to BD each day just in cas I haven't Oed. It is utterly exhausting! Heres to the end of the 3dwtc (3 day wait to confirm!)
