First Trimester

Wow…we are sooooooooo thrilled to get our BFP on our second try!  I must admit that I was pretty worried considering I am “of advanced maternal age” being 35 and I’m no skinny mini!  That first cycle I was completely OBSESSED with anything & everything related to TTC, which was all consuming.  I realized that that kind of pressure was not good for either of us.  So I had a “talking to” with myself and relaxed through the next one.  Granted I did begin BBT charting, we both took supplements, used a strategic calendar family planning schedule and incorporated PreSeed into our bedroom activities.  However once the window closed I made sure I was busy with other things and did my best to keep my mind off of it.  And voila…we’re pregnant!!  WOOT WOOT!  So now begins the progression thriough this crazy science experimant called pregnancy!  I will do my best to stay on top of this, because it’s good for me to record it and I know it can be like crack for those TTC and those expecting!  As always, please fee free to reach out and ask me any questions you may have!  Here we go:
