Five Reasons I Will...

There are five reasons that I will get pregnant this cycle, and they are as follows:

5. I have done nothing in the way of predicting ovulation this cycle. No charting temperatures, checking cervical mucus, OPKs, CBEFM, green tea, mucinex, counting my cycle days, timed sex...nothing. Nada. Zip. Zero. I needed a break, we both did, from all the timing and scrutinizing We needed time just to be the people we were before infertility... and hey, we still got busy. It would just figure, wouldn't it? I'm going to be that person, "We stopped trying and POOF we got pregnant!" I promise you, I will never, EVER say that.

4. I have recently been put in charge of the brand spanking new Lactation Rooms for my company's two locations. Yes, I said Lactation Rooms. I, the infertile, must order baby magazines, cute out informative articles on breastfeeding and parenting for their reader board, ask employees for pictures of their little ones for the picture board, pick out decorations and cosy chairs so they can comfortably pump their milk and schedule the room for the incoming new mothers. This has GOT to be a sign. I'm practically making this room for myself in 9 months, right?

3. Every time I turn on the TV I see that stupid Clear Blue Easy commercial for the "most advanced piece of technology you'll ever pee on." Really. It is getting ridiculous.

2. I have been working out religiously all month long and I'm starting to notice a little bit of leeway in my previously tight pants. It would totally figure that the moment I start to actually try and lose the weight that the past two years has saddled me with I would get pregnant. Which, I might add, would be totally fine with me! Bring on the food cravings! Bacon anyone?

1. On our 2 year TTC anniversary, April 2nd, I have an appointment with a specialist.

There is one reason I may not be:

1. 2 years, 730 days, 17, 532 hours, 1 05,1 898 minutes, 63,113,852 seconds of NOT being pregnant.

5-1 odds. Anyone want to start betting on the outcome?

I just keep telling myself, there is always a chance. It is practically my motto.

"I must learn to love the fool in me the one who feels too much, talks too much, takes too many chances, wins sometimes and loses often, lacks self-control, loves and hates, hurts and gets hurt, promises and breaks promises, laughs and cries"

This will be your month because I want next month to be mine. Plus you have 5 great reasons and they are much better than your 1 not it reason.

Those are great reasons! We did the same thing this month, NOTHING! I hope that method works for both of us!! :)

I love your reasons and I couldn't think of a better gift for your two years than a surprise. Best luck. Keep us all posted.

I stumbled on your blog through another blog, and another blog...

Something about this post really hit home with me. My husband & I know we CAN get pregnant...we've done it TWICE. But, each time, we haven't made it past the 8 week mark. Our most recent miscarriage was 5 weeks ago.

I know how it feels to try & try & try each month...and hope & hope & hope each month...and get NOTHING. I know what that disappointment feels like.

It doesn't make any sense for women who really want a baby of their own, to have so much trouble getting pregnant. I'll NEVER understand.

My husband & I have gone through fertility treatments (Clomid, ovulation shots, progestrone shots, even Artificial Insemination)...none of it worked. Both pregnancies were on our own, without medication. But, they were a year & a half apart.

So, now, we sit & wait & hope & pray for our next positive PG test. It's a total test of faith & patience. And, it's not fair.

I'd like to keep reading your blog...because you're right, there's got to be strength in numbers!
