When I was pregnant with Zander I had it set in my mind that he would be my last. I would not try again. Even after I had him I was in that mindset, that was until he started growing rapidly. I miss my baby so much. I also miss being pregnant and everything that comes with it, good and bad.
After a long talk with Roger back in about August last year we decided that we would try for another but not until I felt that I was healed enough from the C Section. We decided that we would start January 2017 and so here we are writing the fertility diaries again.
We are under no illusions after trying for Zander for 8.5 years that it will happen easily. We have decided we will not try for that long again. I don’t even know if I would physically be able to carry on trying that long as I am 40 this year. We have limited ourselves on time and we have also decided that it will not become our main focus as we have a beautiful little boy plus 2 growing girls too.
As we tried Fertilaid for Men when we tried for Zander and fell pregnant after 3 months of Roger taking them we are sure they helped us. It takes 3 months roughly for sperm to replenish. This time Roger has been taking them for the past two-three months in preparation.
What have I been doing to help? Not much really. I am using ovulation prediction tests and spotting the signs that I get during ovulation. I know my body so well through the whole time we were trying for Zander that it is second nature to just know when ovulation is happening for me.
We are currently in the TWW (two week wait) and just chilling with the ride. To be honest at the moment with a baby in the house I forget what day it is so he does take my mind off of everything anyway. If it happens it happens. I don’t have any symptoms. I didn’t when I fell pregnant with Zander so symptoms mean nothing really haha.
If it doesn’t then more practicing 🙂
This post is just a welcome back and letting you know a little about what we have decided and what we are using to hopefully help us with our journey.
