In other news, H and I have been toying with the idea of me getting pregnant. [Too personal, say whaaaat?] I wrote THIS post a year and a half ago, where I talked about how every month I was convinced that I was pregnant! Lol, I'm sure you have all been there... But last month, I kid you not, I was POSITIVE that I was pregnant. We hadn't been trying, per say... But we weren't really not trying either, you catch my drift? Anyway, after Googling everything about early signs of pregnancy, ovulation, the earliest possible time to detect pregnancy, etc, I bought a 3 pack box of pregnancy tests. Guys, I took the first one a few weeks ago, and after being bummed that it was negative, I chalked it up to just being a little too early to tell. So a couple of days later, I took another one-- this time in the morning, because Google told me that morning is the best time to detect HCG levels. It was negative again. Then my period came, but it was lighter and shorter than normal, so after more Googling, I decided it must be implantation bleeding. Anyway, a few days later, still convinced that I was pregnant, I took the 3rd test. Alas, it was also negative. [H was annoyed that I wasted $15 in pregnancy tests in one week, haha!] Anyway, so I downloaded this app that tracks your period, ovulation, tells you when you're most fertile, etc. Oh, and I've been reading everrrrything that I learn from Google to H; I'm sure he's thrilled about it. [Haha seriously, at least once a day, I'm like "Did you know this?" And he's like, "Oh... Cool, babe."]
I'm not even sure yet if we are for sure "ready" to start trying. I go back and forth on it all the time. One day I want a baby and I'm ready for it, and the next day I'm not. But honestly... Are you ever really "ready" for a baby? I feel like you can never really prepare yourself to be a parent and to have a baby. What do you experienced mamas think?? Were you "ready" or is that just a myth?? Haha! I'd love any and all advice that you guys have for ladies in my situation.
