Sometimes it’s refreshing to simply answer questions. Especially when it’s a question you get asked at least a dozen times a week, and you run out of vague ways to not actually answer, which usually answers the question in and of itself.
So….yes, we’re trying to get pregnant.
Or rather, we’re not not trying.
And we’ve been not not trying for about a year.
(Yes, we started not not trying ironically just a couple of months after I wrote this post – proving that Blogging is therapy – once I got my feelings out, I was good to go.)
However, it took two years to create Ali (we are both, after all, perfectionists), so don’t go out and buy us any baby presents today or anything.
(Unless it’s chocolate – I’m sure that’s always helpful.)
Neither one of us are stressed or sensitive about our infertility, nor are we desperate to get pregnant this time around – we’re really both at peace with God’s timing and plan for our family, and if He wants us to have a second child, then He’ll make sure that happens.
And if He doesn’t, we are both pretty content with that. We don’t plan on exploring any fertility treatments.
The only hard part is the in-between part – the constant wondering of when our life will completely change. Oh – and the 5,672 pregnancy tests I’ve already bulldozed through. But other than that, we’re good with whatever the plan is for our family.
(Ali, however, has been making a lot of mentions lately about the fact that it’s high time I got a baby in my tummy and made her a sibling like all of her friends already have.)
(Which makes me wonder if she’s being fed those suggestions by eager Grandparents and friends…hmm…)
We did some preliminary testing in our pre-Ali days, and I seem to be the problem, but the exact problem has not been diagnosed. But I’m totally cool with the fact that I’m simply not too efficient at making babies.
(It’s a lot easier than the uber-painful diagnostics that they do to discover such problems.)
At any rate, here’s my insider trading tip of the day: buy stock in Early-Pregnancy-Tests.com. I have been and will continue to be keeping them in business.
And I totally realize that I just raised my level of “bump watch” by 5000%, but regardless, staring at my belly is completely and absolutely prohibited.
