Anyone Else Pregnant Too?

Okay so, J and I decided not to stress with the TTC part 2 since this year we:
  • Bought a house
  • Got a puppy
  • Had his graduation
  • Had his graduation party
  • Have a toddler going through the terrible twos

It was one of those things that if it happened, it happened. But if it didn't, we weren't going to look a gift horse in the mouth. But is it a gift horse?

We had pretty much decided that since my cycle has been a bit irregular (I've been at 35-41 day cycles since we moved), we wouldn't actually attempt to time the ovulation until after September but probably before the end of the year. So as soon as I make that decision, I get a call from my SIL (sister-in-law) telling me she's prego, by mistake of course. THEN, one of my close friends here who has a freaking one year old got pregnant by mistake too. Both think we should get on with it now. Both feel like raising their babies with my future one. And yes, I'm starting to feel the influence of peer pressure. Due to my irregularity, I'll probably be playing around with ovulation kits and such. Question is, do I go ahead and do it now? Or wait another few months? And at this point, will a few months make that much of a difference? What am I waiting for?

So after typing all those questions, I realize I need to stop waiting around. My heart wants one even if my mind tells me the timing is not perfect. I figure the mind will find a way to work out what my heart wants. It normally has done pretty good on that. Now, to wait for ovulation...

The Fates lie in wait like that. I find as soon as I get my period, every pregnant woman in the area feels mysteriously impelled to sit next to me on the bus.

When my niece was born (also a WHOOPS baby, seriously, my sister had been dating the man for three months when she got pregnant) she spent two years telling me I needed to hurry up and make a little cousin for her girl to play with. If only my insides paid as much attention to peer pressure as my poor heart did.

Good luck.
