There’d better be a reason


Yesterday I had yet another day of disappointment. Who knew that getting pregnant would be so damn challenging? Nothing takes away romance out of your intimate relationship with your husband better than being on a schedule of becoming pregnant. Body temperature, cycle days, anxiety. And then nothing. Well, this time it was worse than nothing. I was late, and I am never late. I was so hopeful. And then it was negative. And then it was definitely negative. Now I am collecting the pieces to start it all over again. My mantra for these days “It didn’t mean to be this time. There is a reason.” I need to know that there is a reason, otherwise, it is just simply mean and cruel.

  1. All things in time.

  2. Thank you, Jacky. I am an overachiever and a perfectionist. It is very hard to let go and admit that this time things are quite out of my immediate control.

  3. My dr said I wouldn’t be able to get pregnant without fertility treatments. With my medical history I figured he was right. We went away for a week in Cuba. Came back and found out I was pregnant with twins. Only savannah survived but it still happened against the odds. It will come. And I’ll give you my fertility statue my sister have me. I can’t look at it without getting pregnant. Lol!

  4. Anastasia, I will get it to you ASAP! I didn’t even have to burn the candle. Had it a week, then poof!

  5. Anastasia,
    It can be quite a challenging time and i know it causes stress and consumes your life. I never realized how long ONE month could feel! Speaking from experience, my advise is to relax and not pay attention to the calendar or your internal temperature! Keep the romance alive a few times a week EVERY week…and believe me, it will happen πŸ™‚
    If you are interested in one other tip I swore by, send me an email. May be a little TMI for this page lol.
    Wishing you well,
