I do enough research to know that it takes the average couple about 6 months to conceive. And I know that doing the Shettles method for a girl makes it take a little longer than that. So, I shouldn’t have been surprised when we didn’t get pregnant last month.And, I wasn’t surprised.
But, I was disappointed. Obviously. And a little sad.
And, it didn’t help that without exaggeration between Friday (the day I got my period) and Sunday, I saw 18 pregnant women. And I didn’t even leave the house on Friday.
That was only month 1.
This is now month 2. And we try again.
But, I’m torn. Because if I don’t get pregnant this month, I think I’m going to take a break and wait till September to try again, on the off chance we get pregnant in the inbetween months… Because we have a trip out East planned for September, and I don’t want to be in my first trimester for it.
Which means another 4 months of ‘not’ trying. And let me tell you, I miss my birth control pills – between my skin going psycho for two weeks out of the month and the horrendous cramps and longer periods, I’m just about done with this no pills thing. I didn’t realize how well they were working till I stopped.
Here’s hoping this month is our month! :)
