Before I was married and even thinking of Trying to Conceive I always figured that the act of getting pregnant and having a child was an easy thing. Oh that would have been great if that was true! How many of you just rolled your eyes when I said that? Getting pregnant is supposed to be easy - it is science after all! HA! Experiences change every point of view and opinion.I have to preface this discussion and tell you all that I fully realize that while our TTC took longer than I ever expected I realize we are so blessed with two healthy pregnancies, deliveries and kiddos.
On the 9th month of TTC, I decided to test while I was at home by myself on a snow day - hello Colorado blizzard! When I saw that the test was positive I was so excited that I braved the crazy icy roads to head to the store to buy a fun baby pajama set to surprise Jeremy with it when he got home from work. Wow - I seriously remember it like it was yesterday and it has been over 5 years ago!!
Sometimes I look at my belly photos and miss it - and then I think about being outnumbered by kids to adults in our home and I totally shake that idea! ha! Once we felt like we were ready for baby number 2 I decided we had to get going on the TTC journey because I knew it would take months again.
My life lesson here - count your blessings. I have seen so many of my friends struggle with infertility and I know how truly lucky we are to have only been in the TTC journey for a total of 11 months and ending with 2 healthy pregnancies and children. For those of you that think that the journey of parenthood is going to be easy - you might be surprised and when you are, start focusing on the science and invest in the Astroglide TTC™ to help the process along the way.
