Writers Workshop: Babies

I'm trying this new thing at work. It's called actually working instead of blogging. So that's why this post is coming up so late in the day.

When I saw
Mama Kat's writing prompts, I knew I HAD to participate.
2- Do you want a baby?


Is that a little too strong? Well, I figured this was the perfect excuse to write about our official status of TTC (Trying to Conceive).

When I first got married and we discussed child spacing, I thought 2 years apart was perfect. I grew up in a family where we are all about two years apart and it seemed to work fine. Now that I have a child, two years it too close for me. (I've read all the pros and cons on spacing too, I said FOR ME. Not judging anyone else's decision.) I think three years apart would have been great, but someone else was not on board 8 months ago. Now that BG is almost three, it will most likely end up 3.5 to 4 years apart. Which is fine.

I have started tracking my BBT (basal body tempurature) which involves taking my temp every morning before I get out of bed. JM likes to laugh at me for that, because I wake up just long enough to pop it in my mouth then fall back asleep until it beeps. I think he's actually nervous I will either choke on it or stab him in the eye.

I'm not such a patient person and I'm definitely a planner. So not being able to conceive when I want to is a challenge for me. We got pregnant really quick with BG, but some things have changed medically and it might take a little longer this time around. So yes, we are trying, I am thrilled, and hope to get prenant soon!

Congrats on trying! We had the same experience with #1 and then having it take a little longer with #2. It's so hard to be patient, but it will happen :)
