Misfortune and high hopes

Mar 29, 2014 - 0 comments














My boobs hurt so bad! Earlier I accidentally bumped them with a tin of popcorn (which I normally wouldn't even notice) and it hurt really bad. Now, I am just sitting in my bed responding to email, writing an entry and watching netflix and my breasts really hurt. I want to take some ibuprofen, but I want my body to be as healthy as possible. Maybe Tylenol? Who knows? We'll see I guess.

Today my husband and I purchased some things to help us in our "fight" for a baby. I got a lubricant that is supposed to support the flow of sperm to the egg and we got a good supply of ovulating tests. After downloading more than one pregnancy/TTC app, I found that each one says that I am ovulating at a different time, so this is how I am choosing to solve that problem. Now we can know that we will be having intercourse at the right time and that we have a little help in getting the swimmers where they need to go. I also heard something, although I am not sure whether it is a myth or not, but I heard that if you lay down with your pelvis slightly elevated and your legs propped up for a half hour after intercourse, it will increase your odds of getting pregnant. Of course I would only try that if I knew for sure that I was ovulating. Anyway, after we left the store, I realized that next week my husband is leaving for training in the lower 48. He will be gone for a month. What does that mean? He will miss my next ovulation cycle. I was a little disappointed after the money I spent and the expectations that we set together. Although he is going to training, I think I am just going to do the best I can to make sure that my body is the best place for a baby to be.

I made a list of things that need to be included in a "Baby Friendly Life." They are as follows: a good relationship with my husband, a healthy diet, a clean home, exercise, finances which have been and continue to be adequately managed, and sufficient space and supplies for the [hopefully] impending birth. I know that I cannot make myself get pregnant, but I can sure as heck make myself just a little bit more prepared to be.
