On Our Pregnant Week

I am so sorry for your loss, and thank you for writing such an honest, beautiful piece.

At 33 weeks tomorrow I feel very grateful to have passed the point where my fetus is officially viable outside my womb. My husband and I each told only one close friend before the 12-week mark, because at that point while I was definitely physically pregnant and feeling all sorts of nauseous and tired and crazy, the miscarriage possibilities were looming.

Anyway, I also wanted to confirm what your OB said. That even when a pregnancy is wanted and planned, it's never EXACTLY the right time, there are always fears and nagging worries and concerns and running thoughts like "maybe we were too hasty! This is happening too fast!" Even a slight hope that it wouldn't work out...that we could go back to the wanting stage which was a lot less frightening a place to be.

Also, keep taking those prenatal vitamins...it's good to have a buildup of folic acid in your system for whenever the chance comes again.

On If at First You Don’t Conceive, Try, Try Again (and Don’t BD Until Your CM Is EW)

I entered this strange world of acronyms about a year ago. Luckily we conceived before I got too into it. CM, BFP, TTC and TWW (two week wait) are the only acronyms that have stuck. I would post my own conception story but it sounds like there are enough of those around. In short, I like your technique. Chill out, do some sexin', take your folic acid & what will be will be. Best of luck.
