My TTC journey started in summer of 2012 when baby fever hit me full force and I was convinced that we really needed to start trying to have a baby or it would never happen. My DH was less than convinced and needed some time to get ready. In Dec of 2012 I had my Mirena removed and we officially started trying in Jan 2013.
I wasn't taking any chances with letting things happen in their own time and I started charting right away. But then I realized it's a lot more complicated and difficult to get pregnant than I thought. We were doing it all wrong! Which is hilarious considering that people get pregnant on accident all the time. So I learned about fertility and what to expect and started ovulation tests in March. Then we started doing everything just right and not having success. It was really frustrating and upsetting and feeling like it wasn't going to happen naturally for us.
Surprise! October comes and I start setting us up for tests with doctors and on the 17th I got my BFP! And boy was it no squinter, such as beautiful sight to see.
I'm halfway trough 10 weeks now and it has been a rollercoster so far. Lots of symptoms, morning sickness, actual sickness, worry and fears. Not to mention excitement and joy and feelings of peace and contentment.
My next appt is this Thursday (Nov 12) and I'm very excited to see the progress of my baby.
