I am feeling much more hopeful this afternoon-AGAIN 🙂 It’s sunny here and I am not good at staying miserable for long, I hate being miserable, it’s against my very nature. I am a happpy sunny person and I want to be that way, I just REALLY want 10000000 kids to share my personality with, I NEED to be someone’s mom yesterday and it’s stressing me out that now I can’t even seem to get pregnant fast enough and then there is still 9 months of waiting.. So I would appreciate a heads up of any babies available, you know a clearance baby for instance, cause were pretty poor on top of everything else.

It’s just been hard, Dave is going Bankrupt, plus he is having surgery next week and I am worried, a bone graft from his hip to his hand, plus the whole Evan’s autopsy thing and I have my body issues and I am just feeling all around insecure and sad, never a dull moment in the Maynard household. Anyhow I am trying to be patient and believe things will happen as they are meant to…I try so hard, but the waiting, oh the waiting, I have been waiting 2 damn years to bring a baby home. My heart is so soar from all this waiting. We are such good people and we love so deeply and fiercely, right now Oliver get’s the benefit of deep need to share our love 🙂  

I am 32, will be 33 in October and so I was looking up statistics for my age and found this and it made me feel a bit better about myself:

The chances of conception vary by age. At your age, your odds of conception are about 25 percent each month. Here are the statistics:

  • Odds of getting pregnant in a given month, by age:
  • early 20s: up to 25 percent
  • late 20s and early 30s: up to 15 percent
  • late 30s: up to 10 percent

Number of women who achieve pregnancy within the first year of trying, by age:

  • early 20s: 94 percent
  • late 20s and early 30s: 70-85 percent
  • late 30s: 65-70 percent

Average number of months to conception, by age:

  • early 20s: 4-5 months
  • late 20s: 5-7 months
  • early 30s: 7-10 months
  • late 30s: 10-12 months


If you have not conceived after a year, it would be appropriate to consider fertility testing. Your initial evaluation will consist of a medical history, a physical examination and a transvaginal ultrasound exam. The next steps are a semen analysis for your partner and a hysterosalpingogram X-ray to evaluate your fallopian tubes. After reviewing these findings, your physician may request additional testing or suggest treatment. If all the tests are normal, you may wish to delay treatment for an additional six months.

“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.
