358 - another goodie!

Tuesday, January 08, 2013

Yay, another good day. Came "home" (I stay at my brother's house Mondays because I have acupuncture Tuesday mornings) with only 4,700 steps...went for a long walk and got myself up to almost 12,000! Yay, me :)

Well, it seems more and more people in my life are either pregnant or "announcing" to me that they're going to start trying. My brother, of all people. Funny how people change their minds when their friends start having kids. He said he feels bad because they'll probably get pregnant before me. He also says I need to see a therapist because the way I am about pregnancy is unhealthy. But I hate how people keep writing me off...nobody says "it'll happen!"...everybody talks adoption. What??? I would love to adopt, but I'd also like to have one biological kid. We haven't even tried IUI or IVF or any fertility help other than acupuncture and herbs! Why do people try to console me? I've gotten pregnant and I miscarried. A lot of women miscarry their first. I haven't gotten pregnant in the last 16 months because for 10 of those months I was in school and barely home, barely ovulating due to stress and overall unhealthy. I only started acupuncture 4 cycles ago. I've been diagnosed with a number of conditions that contribute to difficulty getting pregnant, all of which are treatable. I'll get there. I just wish people would stop looking at me like I'm infertile and feeling bad for me. I'm not infertile. I will have a baby, and when that baby arrives, I will be glad for the struggles because they will have lead me to the most precious baby in the world!

    I totally agree. Don't give up. I had all kinds of problems. I was married to my first husband for 11 years and never got pregnant. I divorced, got with my current hubby, and within a year I was pregnant. The same with my ex - he had a child with his new wife at the same time. My girlfriend gave up and adopted a baby. The day the adoption was finalized, she found out she was pregnant. So sometimes you just have to trust the timing. You will get pregnant when the time is right.

    Just let it roll off....

    You'll get pregnant when you get pregnant and not a minute sooner. Just continue to eat healthy, have the acupuncture (I kinda enjoyed mine but I didn't do it for pregnancy - mostly just to try it out.). We were married over two years before we got around to trying. I was already having premenopausal symptoms just because of my obesity then as well as my age, but it all works out in the end. And you can always put the ball in their court "why, adoption sounds lovely, when are YOU TWO going to pursue it?" after they rudely tell you that you "need/should" adopt. Whatever!! emoticon They need to live their lives and let you live your own life.

    Hang in there!!
