Trying to Conceive

Relieved at this point

Right away while trying to conceive we picked up one of those fertility monitors. It's the Clearblue Easy one where it tells me which days to pee on the stick and then it'll tell me either that I have low fertility, high fertility or peak fertility on any specific day. After this last period, which dear God I wanted to die from, I was getting anxious. Days 6-12 went by without even a high fertility day... I started getting worried. I've been so stuck on the idea of pregnancy that I think I've been tricking my body into believing that I am.

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. It's going to be weird because we've never used condoms before. He understands where I'm coming from though, and I think it makes sense. I'm not going to go back on the pill for a month just so I can go back off and have my hormones all out of wack all over again. I hope this works. With my luck I'll get pregnant anyway even if we use a condom just to mess with my time line.

Negative Again

Well, I took another HPT this morning and it was negative. Although I'm 4 days late on my period. I guess since it's still negative, my period must just be late. I mean, my last period was 7 days late. So, since I don't want to waste anymore money on HPT, I guess I'll just wait 3 more days for AF.

:( oh well, better luck next time.

Negative

Well, I took the HPT this morning, the day after my period is supposed to start and it was a big fat negative. Not pregnant :( Oh well, I guess I can't get too discouraged since I've only been off my birth control for 2 months and the first month I wasn't trying, but this past month me and my hubby have been quite diligent in our love making....lol

So, I guess I'll just wait for my period....if I don't start by Friday, maybe I'll take another test since I have one left, just in case this one was wrong.

Trying for #2

Okay, so my hubby and I are trying for baby #2. We already have a healthy little girl that turns 2 next month, but it's time for her to have a sibling :) We were married 1 1/2 years before I got pregnant the first time and we weren't even trying. I just happened to forget my birth control (nuvaring) and OOPS, hehe, but I'm glad it happened. SO, this is the first time that I'm actually trying to get pregnant. It's so exciting, but nerve racking...I hate the waiting!

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.
