Welcome

There are a few mom-type and girl-power type people who are new-ish to my Friends list, so I’ve popped them into my Baby Making filter. Welcome Samae, Raving Liberal and Lysozy. This is the story of our so-far unsuccessful attempts to become parents.

If you’d prefer not to be in on these goings-on, just comment and I’ll take you off with nary a hard feeling.

  1. No, I’m good being on it, but I feel a bit behind since I’m reading your posts in the opposite direction from how they were written. If I ask stupid questions, forgive me.

    • As I told my blogging class on Friday, I love stupid questions because they’re so easy to answer and they make me look smart.

      • Have you been trying a long time?

      • Just shy of a year. That’s not too terrible, especially considering some months were better tries than others. But I’m 35 and my doctor doesn’t want me to wait around too long. And I don’t either, since this would be a first baby. 35 isn’t ancient, but I think it’s a bit more likely to happen and to go smoothly if you’ve already done it before.

      • It’s my understanding that a year feels a hell of a lot longer if you’re the one trying. We’ve been fortunate with two fast conceptions, but I have several friends in the same boat as you and they’ve told me they kind of impose deadlines on themselves without meaning to.
        Were you charting, or using some other method? With charting I mean temperature charting (FAM).
        See, now that you let me in the filter, I’m all full of questions.

      • All questions welcome.
        We didn’t start out charting, but did for the last six months. We read “Taking Charge of Your Fertility” and used the methods we learned there. It hasn’t gotten us pregnant yet, but it has been a fascinating learning curve.
        And you’re right, it does feel like a long time.
