I have more zits…Just today arrgggg. I am a mess.
I am also mega cranky and crampy today and possitive my period will arrive tommorow or the next day precisely as scheduled..
Much to my reporoductive chagrin. FUCK.

Next month is the month I got pregnant with Evan…do I abstain for the month out of fear of having the exact same damn due date I had with him? Or do I proceed as planned and keep having wild uninhibited and unprotected intercourse with my husband?? 🙂
That is the question of the day.

“Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving.” — Albert Einstein. When it feels like your world has been shattered, and you have reached rock bottom, you must make a choice: Stay where you are and fade away, or keep moving forward. Thankfully I chose to move forward and was blessed with the two most wonderful children after the death of my first in early labor. Things are looking up.

  1. to abstain or not abstain… that’s up to you and you need to be comfortable with what you choose… but if the sex is good and it makes you happy, why not keep it up lol.

  2. i think if you’re ok with it then go ahead, i personally skipped july since i conceived saige that month and i did not want this baby being born in march.

  3. I was sure my period was coming both times. So sure I drank to relieve the symptoms.
    I say keep sexing it up.
    Please know that I am in NO way comparing our situations when I say this. My midwives sensed that I was essentially planning this birth as if the exact same premature horrible hospital experience was going to happen again. Not only do they remind me of how every pregnancy is different and of how closely I’ll be monitored this time, but they also are encouraging me to get help letting go of my anger regarding EDS birth.

    • Well. My period this morning, on day 28. 2 days early in fact my calculations, but her I am about to write a post about that as soon as I can. I am at work and have a client now 🙂
      Ya we discussed it last night, and I said screw it! I have to believe that things unravel just as they were meant to, and that I have no more or no less chance of it being next month that we conceive, then I did this month or last month, so if it does happen, then it was fated so, if it dosen’t it still is fated so. I just think as frustrated as I am, things still happen on their own terms and in their own time. So why try to control it any more then I already do. That being said I have been very lucky in the conception department so I hope that luck continues, patience can only get you so far.
      You are absolutely right about the letting go of anger and fear thing. There are many similarites for us in that department, despite the obvious differant outcome. We both had a terrible scary experience with childbirth that has become ingrained and we both have to learn to let that go and believe that things can and will roll out differantly the next time around.

  4. I have no advice on the TTC thing—-since MY reproductiveness has been wayyy wacked out and I’ve not been one of those “oh let’s get pg in May” people! LOL!! Yah, God just lets me cycle randomly, so we never know! haha….
    Anyhoo—ugh on the zits!! I put a dab of toothpaste on them and they clear up real fast! heh

    • Ya my cycles are like clockwork..always ovulate and menstruate within a two day window. Dosen’t mean much though since we always do it on the day of and before I ovulate and here I am still trying.
      Damn zits, something is off kilter this month, my face is like dripping in oil.

  5. I think you’re going to have to go with your gut on that: will you feel like jumping his bones and being wild, or not.
    (Vitex totally didn’t work for me, but calcium magnesium is helping my skin clear up! Weird! Also, fish oil is supposed to help, too.)

  6. I had the same due date with Charlotte that I had with Abby, may angel baby. While it was a bit of a mind-fuck, I also saw it as a gift. I was worried about them sahring the same birth date or that Charlotte would be born on the day of Abby’s death, but both of those days passed before Charlotte was born.
    Have you tried Vitex (chasteberry)? It can really help with the PMS symptoms and help regulate your cycle.
