If you haven't tried...

...taking a break from attempting conception, I highly recommend it.  For the last two months I've gotten my period and it was no surprise since we didn't try.  That spared me the crying, the extreme disappointment, the crazies; I feel in control again.

It didn't even bother me that for some reason today, both my MIL and my mom asked my husband and me, respectively if we had any news to share.  Husband replied confidently, "No, she's not pregnant."  And I told my mom, "No, I have nothing to report."  Rather than feeling on the defensive, I'm projecting an image of I Know What's Going On In My Life and I'm Not Wasting Time on 'did it happen this month'?  CD 1 is full of hope and I'm embracing it.


  1. Seems like we're cycle buddies.

    I'm going to follow your example and embrace hope.

  2. Glad you are hopeful again:) Good to hear that!

  3. We decided that next month will be a "not trying" month. After reading your post, I am actually looking forward to it.

    I pray that next month is YOUR month!

  4. Yes, there is certainly a relief in taking a break. I was just thinking that the other day...that I was sort of grateful for surgery because this break from TTC gives me a chance to exhale for once.
