It is funny that we call it “falling pregnant”. It is times like these that I find English incomprehensible.
I dont know about all the mommies out there but to me, one don’t just ‘fall’ pregnant. It takes LOTS of hard work – timing, temperature, overall emotion, overall health, etc etc etc.
My partner and I have decided that perhaps we should have another child – that decision was at least 1 year ago. LO is now almost 3yo. And up to today, I’m still waiting to ‘fall’ pregnant. Initial excitement of wanting to build a bigger family is now becoming a stressful time. There has been 2 instances now where there is a skipped ‘period’ and we were hopeful. Hope is dashed when I see the red stain. Sigh! We’ve tried timing (it is the third month now of ‘enlisting’ the help of digital ovulation device), done blood test, temperature, etc etc etc – short of getting an appointment with an IVF specialist. As I didn’t get medical help to be pregnant with my first child, I’m giving myself another 2 months (fingers crossed that it will be good news) after which i’ll resign to the fact that I may need specialist help… am I just being too proud to accept the help of an IVF specialist?
