When in doubt, third pregnancy test’s a charm.

The next week I find myself in my doctor’s office taking another urine pregnancy test. Even though the at home pregnancy test indicated I was pregnant, I’m still finding it hard to believe and want to be sure.

Stick pregnancy test with question mark in indicator window

After many long months suffering from The Negative Pregnancy Test Blues. Will this test be any different?

Here we are, an anxious 2 days later. Now they do say the best results from an at home pregnancy test are given when you take one at the time of your missed period. But that could be almost a week away and there is no way I can wait that long! Even though taking pregnancy tests have become somewhat of a sport that has each time left me defeated these last 9 months. And with the possibility of yet another crushing disappointment, curiosity and hope have got the better of me.

Sky high baby hopes; did our plan work?

Sadly the “conceptionmoon” is over and we’ve just returned to reality. Our holiday was pure bliss, Hubby and I really feel we milked the holiday for all it was worth and left feeling more than satisfied that we stuck to “the plan”. As sad as it was to leave, I couldn’t wait to wrap my arms around my Little Guy again.

Except at breakfast I started to think about how my boobs had been really sore for the last few days. However, I quickly decided that I probably shouldn’t think too much of it. Yet.

My new baby making plan: must have lots of sex!

Following the good news I decided to really get “on top” 😉  of the baby making situation. After telling Hubby about the ultrasound and the impending ovulation, we decided that we needed to have LOTS of sex, like, everyday. Besides, as this would be the first time we knew for sure an egg was on its way, it was time for a change of tactic.  Read More

The egg before the baby

Reproductive science has come a long way and it’s giving woman like me (with not only a rapidly ticking biological clock, but other fertility issues) a better chance at conceiving. Whether it’s going through IVF, taking fertility drugs or doing something as simple as having a transvaginal – meaning through the vagina (I had to look it up) – ultrasound. I recently underwent one of these ultrasounds and it revealed a lot about my current reproductive abilities. Read More
