*written months ago - posted after notifying my boss (who I sincerely hope doesn't know this blog exists, but might)
So, we've officially been trying for one cycle.
(oh - yeah - I'm not publishing this yet - so you're reading WAY after the fact ).
I went a little nuts and even after day three of spotting (on days 9, 10, and 11 Days past detected ovulation) I took a pregnancy test.
I decided to officially call today "light" bleeding on fertilityfriend (where you can chart all the delightfully delicious fertility signs/symptoms, like, cervical mucus, body temperature, when you did it, etc) and start my cycle from day one.
Last night (and I knew how crazy I was, thank you very much), I googled to find all the stories of people who got their periods and were STILL pregnant.
So, we're off to month two.
I'm cutting my coffee consumption in half (and adding half decaf to the grounds mixture), taking my pre-natals, and re-decorating my entire house to make room for a baby :)
Plus, over the hot, hot weekend, we came up with a fantastic plan for staying home with the babe until he/she is ready to go to T's current school (at 18 months). We seriously can't afford more childcare than we have now - so we were considering an au-pair. But, in thinking about how unhappy I am with long term company, it seemed like it might be a bad idea.
So, we have a secret plan and we're both thrilled about it :)
Now, we just need to do it so we can have a munchkin!
