8 Reasons I Should Probably Be Afraid of Getting Pregnant Again

By Devan McGuinness |

I am still in a 2 week wait to see if the 13th cycle of trying to get pregnant has worked. If you’ve ever been in the process of trying to conceive, you will understand when I say that time seems to be at a stand-still. You’re just waiting to see if you’re finally pregnant. My wait could be more accurately described as nearly-three-weeks since my luteal phase, the time between ovulation and expected period, is 18 days long.

To tell the truth, there are some days, those crazy days, where I wonder why we’re trying to add another child to the mix. I know, with all my heart, that it’s the best decision for us, but I would be lying if I said there were never any moments where I reconsidered those reasons.

When I think about it, pregnancy and I don’t really get along. I love being pregnant and want more than anything to have another child in our family, but there are many reasons why I maybe should be more worried about it than I am.

There are 8 reasons why I should probably be afraid of pregnancy again, even though I am not in the least.
