After 5 months of TTC (which I shouldn't complain about, as I realize others have tried so much longer), I can sometimes tend to get frustrated with the whole TTC process and "needing to do this".
I thought it would be nice to remember or think about the positives
Is there anything about the whole TTC process that you enjoy/like? (besides the obvious? haha)
As for me, I guess I'll say I've enjoyed learning more about my body. I'm a learning junkie, and I've appreciated knowing how my body works and runs, and what it's doing. I started temping and charting this cycle, and it's been neat to see what's going on in a different way!
I, too, love learning about my body and how it works better.
I also love how close it's brought me and my husband
Especially after a year of trying, and with a loss and heart ache in between... we've always been very close, but I feel the whole process has managed to bring us even closer.
well it's been over a year for us (15 months now...) but we are just now learning it's male fertility...and while this may be funny - as much as i HATE the fact (of course) that we do have fertility issues - what I LIKE is that it's forcing my husband to go to the doc!!! haha.
he's your stereotypical guy who won't go to the doc if he sawed off an arm...but he wants a baby just as much as me.
also - it's nice to know EXACTLY when I'm due for AF every month (i'm exactly 28 days)...and my android app is awesome cuz the widget tells me exactly what day i'm on all day! (menstrual calendar premium is what i use)
