Relax huh?

I always hated hearing "if you just relax it will happen." Don't think this post will be a change for me. It won't.

What suprises me is that after struggling with Secondary IF for almost 4 years, then getting pregnant, I STILL HEAR IT! Now though, it's "I told you to relax, look what happened."

What those people (some of them family members) don't know is that we never stopped trying. When you are TTC and struggling, it's never far from your mind. No, we weren't in formal treatment, but I was doing accupuncture 1-2 times a week all through the summer. I knew exactly when I was ovulating and we were timing intercourse. That isn't exactly "relaxing and letting it happen." So it still bothers me to hear "I told you so." Really? Really? You have NO idea what I was doing because I stopped telling you! It was easier on my mental health to stop talking about it than to hear assvice from you.

When I told my family I was pregnant, I heard several "I told you so" comments. I had to stop myself from getting angry and just say "we weren't not trying, we just didn't tell you what we were doing." Sigh...I thought it would stop but I guess once you hear it, you will continue.

Checking in after a long time

So it's been a while.

I am now 31 weeks, 2 days pregnant with a little boy. We call him Deuce (for now). He's kicking away as I type.

Today I am more pregnant than I've ever been! Boo was born at 31 weeks 1 day (his story is here somewhere if you want to look) He is now almost 5 1/2. He's very happy that he's about to be a big brother, although Momma and Dad are worried it's going to rock his world, a LOT.

I feel like I should have all kinds of things to say and tell you, but I'm rusty...very rusty.

I promise to update more, really, I do. I just need to figure out if I have anything to say that is worth reading....
