It’s not a secret that, for the last couple of months, my husband and I have been trying to conceive. After my miscarriage last year (which my new Atlanta doctor is telling me was really more of a chemical pregnancy than a miscarriage since I was only 4 weeks along. No matter what you call it, it was heartbreaking and it discouraged us from trying for about a year. Now that we’re back to trying (with a little help from my doctor and Astroglide TTC) I feel like every month I’m running off to Google to look up every single silly little thing just to search for a glimmer of hope that this month might be the month we finally see a BFP on a home test. (And yes, I know that stress isn’t good for me and I need to just relax but that’s easier said than done.)
In the 5 years that we’ve been together we’ve made a lot of great memories. We’ve lived in 3 different states, added 2 sweet dogs, visited multiple states (including my family farm in West Virginia) and shared a lot of new experiences. I spent a lot of my childhood visiting family in West Virginia and I want to build those same memories with our children. Our last trip there this past July I took my husband to the covered bridge that is basically a landmark in our family. I want to recreate this picture one day with our baby, God willing.
Unfortunately, this month I don’t have any exciting baby news to share with you all. We’re still trying, hoping, and praying that God’s timing eventually coincides with ours but that hasn’t happened yet. We know that eventually it will because we know that God is with us. We’re praying over it. We know God has a great purpose for everything He does.
When I spoke to my doctor this month I mentioned that we’ve been using Astroglide TTC Trying to Conceive lately. It’s specially formulated for couples who are trying to conceive because Astroglide TTC supports fertility with adjusted pH levels. He was completely in favor of us continuing to use it so two big thumbs up for that! It’s just…omg that baby face! I want one.

Do pregnant women really glow?
I mean, I know it isn’t like a glow-in-the-dark glow but seriously…what kind of glow?
Does pregnancy cause sinus congestion?
Because I had a stuffy nose and was hoping maybe it meant I was pregnant…
Can my dog sense an early pregnancy?
My chiweenie was being extra snuggly and I was hoping maybe it was a sign that he knew something I didn’t.
What does implantation bleeding look like?
What?!? TMI? Whatever. I mean, if it comes I’d like to have some idea what I’m seeing instead of wondering.
Will my breasts leak in early pregnancy? How much?
I heard that some women have this happen. I didn’t want another surprise!
Constipation or diarrhea in early pregnancy?
Let’s be honest…gross stuff happens when your body starts changing.
Chinese gender prediction
I saw a woman in a forum mention something about a Chinese gender prediction calendar that would supposedly be able to predict the gender of the child based upon your age and the month of conception. I thought it would be fun (but I know that only God will determine the gender of my future child).
And so we wait (and I Google) and we pray that soon God answers our prayers and blesses us with a sweet little one we can call our baby.
