My husband is fond of saying that it's one of the grand jokes of the universe that we spend our teens and twenties being told not to even breathe on a member of the opposite sex lest we find ourselves with child, only to find out how hard it actually is to get there when you reach an age where you finally want to be pregnant.
I suppose I really can't complain yet. I mean, we do already have one child. Also, we've only been trying for three months, which is NOTHING compared to what a lot of people go through. Still, every month when that visitor comes a-calling you can't help but feel like there's a giant, blinking neon light over your head flashing FAIL over and over again. It's frustrating!
This month though, we're trying something new:
I also received testing sticks for the monitor from two different friends, as well as a pregnancy test. As you may know, none of those are cheap either. I'm so blessed to not only have friends who are generous, but to know they're not thinking I'm a bad parent to the kid I have by wanting to help me out on this journey. I mean, if we totally and completely sucked at this parenting business, I doubt anyone would be helping us to have another kid to ruin, am I right?
We hung out with some of our old friends this weekend. One couple just had a baby a few months ago, and the other is just finishing out her first trimester with her second. Her first is just five months younger than Bubba, so I'm kind of hoping that we'll get to be pregnant together again like last time.
Almost everyone I know who has used this monitor has had success with it in the second or third month. That's pretty impressive, so I'm hoping it will help us out too! Cross your fingers!
