Month 8 was not the month

If I had known it was this easy to not get pregnant, I wouldn't have fretted those 3 or 4 times over the past few years when I was a week late (no doubt stress-induced) and Brad and I weren't yet ready to start a family. 

Goodness, not getting pregnant is so easy that I find it hard to believe that anyone makes a baby the first time they have sex. That seems like some kind of astronomical odds going on there. 

The woman who cleaned my teeth last week made a good point. "How old are you?" she asked. I told her 29. She shook her head and said, "Well, if you were 16, you'd be on your second one right now." 

I'd laugh, but it's so true it's not even semi-funny. 


  1. It took us nearly six (6) years to produce our little boy. Don't worry. It will happen, sooner or later.

  2. Have you tried the ol' catholic way? Like taking your tempature every morning and charting it? I dont know if it would work but it def worth a try :)
