Not Pregnant...again

I just got my third period after going off birth control and I'm getting pretty antsy. I really want to have a baby and start a family.

Too Tired

So I wanted this to be the month that I conceived. I wanted it so bad! I ovulated around my birthday (last weekend) and it would have been the perfect birthday present!

Names

I've been obsessed with names basically my whole life. I remember reading my mom's baby name book before I went to sleep when I was in elementary school.

Starting a New Job

I've taken the leap and started my full time job. It's making everything more real. I'll be pregnant soon and dealing with a whole new set of challenges on top of learning a new job.

Pause

My boyfriend and I have decided that we're going to use condoms this month because I start my new job next week and I want to make sure my insurance kicks in before I get pregnant.

New Job

I finally got a call that I've been waiting for! I received and offer for a full time position! This is one of the most exciting things to happen to me in a long time. I'll have a regular schedule, and a regular pay check to count on. No more depending on other people's generosity to pay my bills!! The best thing by far in the benefits package that seems to be a very good one. I will be insured through Blue Cross Blue Shield of Alabama.

Not this Month

I got a full fledged period yesterday. No baby this month. That's ok though since I should be starting a full time job next week and I should make sure my benefits kick in before I'm pregnant. I know a lot of insurance companies consider pregnancy a "pre-existing condition" so I need to make sure I'm covered before I'm actually pregnant.

Anticipation

So, I'm sitting here on what should be the second day of my period with nothing so far. I'm not sure what to think since this is the first month in nearly 7 years that I've been off the pill. I could just be adjusting to having my hormonal freedom back, or I could be pregnant already. I'm not going to get my hopes up one way or another, but I think I'm going to go buy a pregnancy test.

Maybe this is the beginning of the rest of my life at a mother.

On the Road to a Family

So today is day 1 of my quest to become pregnant. I stopped taking my birth control pills after my last period which started exactly 21 days ago. Technically, I could already be pregnant, but I just don't think that it's going to happen so fast. I'll know in a week I suppose, but I'm confident that it's going to take until August or September for it to happen. We'll see, everything will come together when it's supposed to.
