What No One Told You

Last night Tristan and John carved their annual pumpkin. This year they carved a bat. I'll try to post pictures later this week. It's pretty good! John even let Tristan do some of the cutting this year. She's getting so old!

I found this online and it is quite fitting. Pretty funny stuff.
What Nobody Told You About Trying to Conceive...
That unprotected sex doesn't necessarily lead to pregnancy.
That your sex life would start to resemble a science experiment.
That the longer you TTC, the more PG women spring up around you.
That you would know more about the female reproductive system and menstrual cycle than most of the doctors.
That living your life in 2 week increments would be the norm.
That simply relaxing will NOT get you pregnant.
That you have no control over some of the goals you set...
That wishing really hard for something doesn't make it happen.
That a pregnancy doesn't always equal a baby.
That you wasted ALOT of money on Birth control pills!!
That you would be willing to stick a little blue pill in your hoo-haa.
That you would be willing to stab yourself in the stomach with a needle every day.
That it is insensitive to ask people when they are having a baby!
That medicine and procedures are not a sure fire way to get pregnant but it is a sure fire way to lose money fast.
That infertility is more common than you think.
That there is nothing to aid conception in the water at work, despite what some may say.
That foreplay would consist of your husband asking "How's your cervix today"
That an HSG will tell you more than just whether or not your tubes are blocked. I had no idea your uterus could be misshaped.
That one person could be "cursed" with so many different fertility problems.
That your husband would be overly concerned that your BD positions were the most effective ones!
That you would become addicted to peeing on a stick!
That you would learn to speak in code:“I checked Cm which was EWCM but when I will POAS who knows, dh won't let me for fear of BFN
That you would meet such a wonderful group of people that you can share your sorrow, frustration and fears with and not even know their last names.
That the two little words "just relax" uttered by everyone you know would infuriate you beyond belief.
That you wouldn't know how important a baby was to you until it took so long and you realized what you were willing to do.

I especially like the last one. I know what I am willing to do to have a baby... I'll move mountains if I have to!



  1. I know you'd do anything! I'm praying hard!

  2. I will help push the mountain out of the way.

  3. So true!! For me...especially the living in two week increments, the HSG and the addicted to peeing on a stick. I'm continuing to pray for you & your family.

  4. just found your blog and wanted to say hi. What an honest post that was... I am having a hard time right now trying to decide whether or not to start "trying"... although it isn't the perfect time, I am worried about infertility problems and wonder if I shouldn't wait... ugh... its so hard no matter where you are in life... my heart goes out to you!

  5. Aww...such an awesome post! There are so many things I couldnt possibly understand but I am praying every day!

  6. I'm praying hard for God to move the mountain for you! Love you!

  7. Thanks for the prayers guys!! I'm so lucky to have so much support! It warms my heart!
