Addicted to TTC!!

Well hello Kings and Queens!! This month is Father's Day and I would like to wish all of the "daddys" a HAPPY FATHER'S DAY!! Especially those who are doing what they should be doing as a father.

I would like to also wish all of my "mommys" a belated HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY as well.

As the subject states...I am addicted to TTC!!  TTC is an acronym for "trying to conceive".

A couple of years ago before my husband and I got married, I was pregnant and had a miscarriage at 7 weeks. The sad part of it all is I had no idea! Not one symptom or anything. I just realized that the monthly evil witch hadn't showed her face and I took a test and was downhill from there. Fast forward 4 years later and my honey and I are making moves to add to our family. As you may already know, I have a 22 year old stepson and a 13 year old stepdaughter. We've decided we wanted to expand our family by at least 2 more children.

Let me tell you...trying to conceive in your early thirties is rough. You symptom spot on every little feeling you have. You research every symptom hoping ..wishing.. and praying that this month is the month or that month we will hit the jackpot. You track your menses, buy ovulation predictor kits, track your temperature daily, visit every freakin website possible from BabyCenter, The Bump, and BabyandBump... I can go on and on. Google has definitely been my friend over the last year of trying to conceive. I have been addicted to the point where I have spent countless amounts of money on pregnancy tests. (I know you TTC ladies out there KNOOOOOOWWW EXACTLY what I've been going through.)

Saying all of this to say...I AM DONE!! I hear everyone say things like "if you relax it will just happen and come naturally", yadda yadda yadda. Well I am taking that advice and running with it. No more temping, pregnancy tests or none of that. I just want to tell the Lord...SURPRISE ME!!

To my ladies who get pregnant without going through the madness... thank your lucky stars!! There are a lot of women out here who are trying to have children and it is a little harder for some more than others.

To my TTC ladies out there.. don't give up hope. Pray and get yourself checked up to make sure everything is functioning properly for you to be able to have a child. The more you go through the madness above, the more you stress yourself out and prolong conception. JUST RELAX!!! :-)

Until next time...

Hugs & Kisses,

The Love Mistress :-)
