Welp, no baby for us this month. But I’m learning to be ok with that. True, when AF first showed up last night I got really upset, I even got a little mad at God. We’ve been trying for 2 years and I’ve had to watch all these people around me get pregnant on accident, I’ve waited my turn! But then hubby and I were talking and apparently the surgery that he had to fix his heart condition can affect his fertility by up to 40%! I would never ever ever regret making him get that surgery because I know it saved his life and our relationship because SVT only gets worse the longer it’s left untreated, but it really does suck that it would affect this.
But now I have had 24 hours to re-adjust so now I am on track with a new plan. Despite having been trying for 2 years, we never went really crazy with mapping and tracking and taking temperatures and all that because we wanted to keep the spark there and not make it clinical. But since that obviously hasn’t worked, we’re going to try a different strategy. Hubs had wanted to go to the Dr and get all the fertility tests done and start with all that as soon as March gets here but I want to try a different approach first. I want to try 3-6 months of taking the ovulation tests and tracking before we go to the doctor. So we’re going to go that route before taking the extreme steps, but we know now what to be on the lookout for and how to plan for it.
I am really excited to have a baby and I am getting really really really impatient but I am going to continue to trust in God’s timing and His plan. He knows what is best for me, for my hubby and for our future family and I am going to trust in that.
