I am used to the whole “trying to conceive” journey. If I could have life the way that I wanted, I would be one of those people who just accidentally or easily became pregnant when open to the idea of it — not having to do much planning or worrying and not stressing about the specifics of trying to conceive.
That’s not the case for me; with our history, if we want to have a healthy pregnancy we have to be very careful and very diligent in our planning. Accidental or surprise pregnancies will nearly always end in miscarriage for us. This means full on trying to conceive plans — the basal body temping, doing the deed around ovulation, and watching for all early signs of pregnancy. I have to be on medication right after possible implantation, so it’s tricky for us.
I don’t want to sound like I am complaining too much because yes, I am very thankful that we’ve been able to get pregnant, stay pregnant and have our beautiful children — but it’s not all fun. Click through to read the 10 things I hate about trying to make a baby:
