First and foremost – Happy Birthday Grammy!! I love you!
Now that that’s taken care of, can I just whine for a second? Thanks.
Waiting for BabyH that is. (well, I’m kinda impatient, so all waiting semi-sucks but this is worse)
We wait for that damn egg, we wait for it to be long enough after ovulation to test, we wait for period to come but pray it doesnt, we wait for me to stop being pissed and sad that period came, we wait for period to be over, we wait for positive OPKs, we wait for fertile days, we wait for the day or two I can test, we wait for the day we see those two fabulous lines. We wait and wait and wait.
Have I mentioned we wait? And it sucks?
I realized that I’m living my life in two-week chunks. Pre-ovulation and post-ovulation. And even though I have so much going on with work, school, business, socially, it’s not enough to make me forget that I’m just a freaking waiter (getting no tips mind you) with between 1 and 14 days to some gynecological event for me to set another 2 week chunk of life around.
When we first started unofficially trying in May..well more like..not trying, not preventing.. I mentioned to a friend I was frustrated that I didn’t get preggo immediately (i know i know). She decided to tell me about her friend who’s been trying forever with no luck, did all these treatments for years with no luck and is all upset about it. As if that is the right time to tell that story.
Anyway, I really in the back of my head thought I’d be one of those folks who got of BCPs and then *BAM* bun in the oven. When we started for real trying in July I was just certain it would happen immediately. I wish people had more stories about that to tell me, instead of gloom and doom.
It’s frustrating that I’m not preggo yet. And it’s frustrating that it’s so early to tell if it’s just bad timing so far or if there is something internal that needs to get fixed. It’s frustrating to be a waiter. Hey, BabyH, hurry the hell up, ok?
OK, vent over. Thanks for
suffering through listening.
Babymed says: With regard to couples who make love regularly:
- About 50% of healthy couples get pregnant after 4-5 months
- 70% get pregnant after 9 months
- 85% get pregnant after one year.
But the sperm count has to be OK, the woman has to ovulate regularly, and her tubes have to be open.
How long did it take you? If you had difficulty, what was your first course of action w/ your doctor?
Anyone have any wonderful stories of “oh we tried for 5 seconds and then *pop* went my belly!”?
