I look around me and everywhere I turn there is a baby taunting me. My best friend just found out a few weeks ago that she is expecting baby number one, after over a year of trying to conceive. I couldn't be happier for her, and I'm praying for a happy and healthy baby for her. But at the same time I wish I were in the same boat with her. My husband and I have only been trying for a month now, a little less actually, but I feel like I have been waiting forever for my husband to just get on board with another baby.
So really? You here the word period and secretly cringe, or maybe not secretly! But for me it has a whole different meaning!! It means, I have one down, one more to go! Before I can start trying that is! I was never so disappointed when my Dr told me I had to wait 2 whole periods! I thought oh man 2 whole months? Then I most likely wouldn't get pregnant for another 6 or so, needless to say I was upset, but would rather have a healthy baby, than a fast one. So I agreed, and went on. Well you can imagine my surprise when I woke up Friday morning to the awful gift!!
Well today I did it! I went up to my drs office and had the mirena birth control removed, I was so scared that it was going to hurt or that I would have some symptoms I read about, but all it was a bunch of cramping, and very light bleeding!! Now I am on my way to making babies!! It all seems so real now! My dr told me to wait at least 2 periods before trying to conceive, so I guess we are going to go with that, even though my excitement is almost to much to bare!!We picked out a girl name for sure last night, it will be Piper Jane, Jane for my grandma who passed away in 2008 of cancer.
My husband and I have been together for almost five years now, and married for almost 4. We found out we were pregnant with our first child Hanna five months after we had been together, needless to say we moved way to fast for a couple who were barely in our twenties. Back then we were just stupid kids thinking the world was at our fingertips and that nothing could slow us down, we learned otherwise the day the pregnancy test said pregnant. Now my daughter is three and the light of our lives, she makes everyday worth all the struggle we went through and all the worries and fears we had.
