I got my BFP!!!!! We are SUPER EXCITED!!! My husband and I wanted to have both kids close in age. I am 33 and he is 37 (not that we are old 😉 but we just wanted them to be close in age. With that said, we currently have a 8 month old little boy who will be about 1.5 years old by the time this baby is born….Eeeeeek we are sooooo excited.
What’s strange is… I lost my mom on November 1st (this month) and we were BEST FRIENDS. I was/am devasted. She got sick and my husband and I moved her in and was taking care of her. The past 7 months was crazy running back and for th to doctors appointment, etc… Last month she said to me “It’s time for me to go — you will be ok. You think you won’t but you will. It’s time for you to be with your family, have another baby, etc….. She passed Nov 1st and then I find out that I am pregnant…. (she knew we were trying).
My mom was in the delivery room with my first child and she wont be with this one — which makes me sooooo sad. I haven’t fully accepted her death yet — meaning it hasn’t hit me all the way just yet. Which is probably a good thing because I would be worst off than I am right now 🙁
For those interested in birth control, how long it took, etc….. read below..
I got pregnant during the exact cycle as my first… The first child, I was on BCP for 15+ years with no break. I got off at 32 years old and was thinking that it might take some time since you hear all sorts of stories. I came off the pill, had the withdrawal bleed right away, had 1 menstrual cycle after that and then became pregnant. The exact thing happen this time… I got on BCP right after I had the baby, came off of the pill the end of September, had the withdrawal bleed, one cycle and then here we are!!!
What did we do: For both pregnancies, I did not chart, take temp, no preseed, etc… Note: I am not saying that you shouldn’t do those things but we just didn’t. We wanted to just keep things like we normally do. Basically, have sex a couple times out of each week. For us, it was less stress and didn’t make things seem like it was a “job” so to speak.
Either way, good luck bees!!
my mom and I
