The Road from TTC to Pregnant

When I first began my journey to try to have a baby I was so anxious, excited and scared. In my journey of preparing and researching fertility I realized how not-easy it was for so many people. It seemed as though many friends I knew in college were able to get pregnant easy enough but for many, I didn’t know the story behind their baby story.

As I learned the challenges some of my friends faced I began to wonder what my journey would be like.. I wondered how long it would take for us to get pregnant. I didn’t know why I’d feel so confidant about it being the time to try to have a baby then it take years to happen… But maybe it would just be a trial for me to overcome. I wondered if we were secretly infertile. I knew, and know so many people who didn’t know why they weren’t conceiving, why their cycles were irregular, why they had to wait a year to get professional help.

I sorta knew way to much to begin with. My cycle was 28 days exactly but I knew that didn’t guarantee my fertility. What if the problem wasn’t with me, but with my spouse? I prepared as best as I could, but all I could do was hope for the best and prepare for the worst.

I know some thought my ramblings of insecurity were premature… And perhaps it was, but it wasn’t a mockery I was portraying… Rather my true feelings on the topic of trying to conceive. And I imagine they’re similar feelings of any woman who wants to become a mother… A woman who has compassion for friends she knows has struggled but wonders what her fate will be.

I was shocked, to say the least to find out I was pregnant… And so quickly. But I also felt like I had immediately become a traitor to my friends who were still in the trenches of TTC. I had only gotten a taste of the trial and already I was rescued from the pits… Leaving them behind. I felt so bad at first, I didn’t know how to be excited, how to share my excitement while not causing pain. I KNOW how that feels. I didn’t know it to the same extreme, but there were so many times… Even before we were trying that I wished we were in the right time and place to have a child. Then after beginning to bring a baby into our home, I got just a taste of the sting when a friend shared the news of their new baby. I could only imagine how that feeling is magnified by YEARS of experience and pain.

I knew what NOT to do… I knew how much I hated people telling me time and time again just to “relax.” All of my research and preparing could have come across as stressing but I really was just trying to be informed. I know that’s not a piece of advice I’ll give to someone who is TTC. …Because I’m sure they’ve heard it enough already. I know I did and we weren’t trying for years and years. Actually I don’t think I’d give anyone advice… Unless they specifically ask me for mine.

I didn’t know what to do but blog on, as I had always been… Express my fears, excitement, frustrations, everything as I always have, and hope not to offend or hurt anyone. All the while I’m praying my friends trying to have a baby aren’t far behind. Sometimes I don’t know what to say, if I’ve said too much. All I can do is be myself, be honest, and hope I’m not hurting anyone, and hope that anyone struggling knows I’m not doing anything inspite of them.

My situation of expressing my journey has been unusual to say the least. I think most women start documenting their TTC journey once they’ve been trying for awhile… Maybe even once they’ve been diagnosed with infertility. I loved helping other women who were in the same boat as me, or not yet TTC but getting ready.

I know I’m not alone with this feeling either though because as some of my TTC friends cross over to the pregnancy side with me, they secretly message me with their excitement, I assume feeling the same sense of worry for expressing their happiness. It’s such a quick and drastic change, and sometimes difficult to absorb and explain.

I want my friends on all sides of the TTC fence to know I love you, I support you, and I’m here for you in whatever way you want me to help!

I know my tone has changed based on what I’m going through but I’m still thinking and praying about my TTC friends daily.

Before I found out I was pregnant Fertilaid contacted me about doing a review and giveaway. I found out I was pregnant shortly after but still wanted to offer this Little Bundle Pack to one of my TTC readers… If you still read.

Here’s info about the Little Bundle Starter Pack:

The Little Bundle Starter Pack helps ensure proper nutrition, promotes hormonal balance and improves cervical mucus production; all of which play an important role in the conception process.

FertilAid for Women is a doctor-designed supplement that takes a dual approach to aiding conception. It contains a full prenatal vitamin supplement (including folic acid) as well as an herbal blend of fertility enhancing herbs that help to regulate the hormones and normalize one’s cycle. This “Just Right” formula of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and herbs (such as vitex) is designed to improve your odds of conceiving.

Without fertile quality cervical mucus, sperm have a difficult time making their way to the egg. FertileCM is designed to improve both the quantity and quality of a woman’s cervical mucus. In addition to mucus production, FertileCM helps to strengthen the uterine lining for better implantation of the embryo.

FertilAid for Women and FertileCM complement one another and were formulated to be taken safely together. Both are natural, non-prescription supplements designed to improve overall reproductive health and help you conceive.

But I’m going to up the prize a little. You get a Little Bundle Starter Pack PLUS goodies from me.
I’m throwing in my 4 Pulling Down the Moon Fertility ARTeas (I’ve only used a few table spoons of each) the containers are practically full!

Pulling Down the Moon ARTeas Cleanse ($10.95)
Pulling Down the Moon ARTeas Implantation ($10.95)
Pulling Down the Moon ARTeas Nourish ($10.95)
Pulling Down the Moon ARTeas Ovulation Support ($10.95)

A tube of Conceive Plus ($16.50)

A Clearblue Easy Digital Pregnancy test! ($8)

Self Fertility Massage DVD ($29.95)

1 FertilAid for Women
and 1 FertileCM ($45)

So about a $145 Value!!
Also, everyone gets a free download to Circle + Blooms Fertility Relaxation program for cycle days 1, 5, and 13. They recently lowered their prices and I HIGHLY recommend checking it out. It’s the one thing I used religiously the month I got pregnant, and it really is relaxing. Try it for free before you buy!

You can also use coupon code “newyearsavings” to receive 10% off at www.fairhavenhealth.com.

I know it’s not much, I wish I could do more, wish I knew what to say and that I could make EVERYONE pregnant (wouldn’t that be nice?) But this is a little something I wanted to add to my Full Term of Giveaways for you. Consider this your TTC Kickoff Package.

ttc4toolong says:

I would love to win because we have been trying for a little over 4yrs. Doctors have told me to ‘just relax’ and it will happen. It never did. Doctors tell me that I am too young to worry about infertility, that it is something that would happen after I reach the 35yr mark (and I am 23 going on 24 I can’t wait that long for the doctor to help me.)

Ashley says:

I don’t need or want any of your items; I just wanted to give you some input-
As someone who struggled with infertility for more than four years and thankfully came out on the other side, the best thing you can do for your friends that are struggling to conceive is to be a good listener. Don’t judge, don’t tell them things are going to be okay and will work out, don’t whine to them about your pregnancy- Just listen.

Also, try to be understanding when they cannot share in your (or others) joy about being pregnant. We just have feelings we have to work through, whether we understand their complexity or not.

my pregnancy tip is to not keep track of your weight, or at least not worry about it. my OB said to me “look, as long as you’re not doing drugs or eating mcdonalds every day, you will lose the weight. your body knows what it’s doing and it’ll gain the weight that it needs. that might be 20 lbs, it might be 45, but it’s ok.” that helped me feel a lot better about things!

marfmom says:

and, i follow fertileaid on twitter

My sister in-law has been trying to have a baby for over a year now. Its starting to way down her heavily now. Its been heart breaking to see her and my brother stuggle through this. They are the sweetest couple Ive ever met. I think a baby would be so blessed to be born in thier home. If I won I would give the prize to them.

Hello!
I would love to win this prize package. My husband and I have been trying to conceive for a while now. I have been diagnosed with PCOS (polycystic Ovary Syndrome) It basically is my ovaries are covered in cysts that prevent them from releasing my eggs. I have high levels of both hormones and it has caused weight gain, hair loss and a bunch of other bad situations. This prize would help both my husband and I have the baby we have been dreaming about. That is the one thing we both want is to have children. I feel bad because im not like most people out there that can be like… oh lets have sex.. and nine months later a baby is born.
I love your blog by the way. It makes me laugh and cry. Im to the point where all my friends are having babies… the babies that I want to have myself and it makes me so sad.
Sorry about my rant!

I forgot to say that we have been trying for about a year now to no avail… sorry I forgot that!

My husband and I have been trying for 2 years in April. We’re about to start fertility testing next month, but we’ll have to use up all of our “baby fund” to do so… It’s all of the money we’ve saved the past 2 years to put toward our baby.

We’ve seen multiple couples around us conceive, give birth, and are now currently trying for their second. It’s like we’re getting lapped in the race to parenthood even though we had a full year jump start on them… It gets harder and harder everyday.

I have heard of all of these products, but have never used them. I’ve used all natural products to conceive, but have always been scared of the FertilAid! I would love to try it though!

What a fun giveaway! I adore your blog and have been following it since last fall, when we decided to join the TTC club. Thanks for letting us tag along on your journey. We’ve had a few bumps along the way thus far, and may be putting the TTC business on hold until spring, but haven’t lost faith that it will happen when the time is right. Thanks for sharing!

It would be great to try to have another little one running around.

Heather says:

I’ve had two miscarriages, but I do have a wonderful four year-old son. We’d love to have another baby, but have been having a tough time with that. Maybe this kit would help!

Eat healthy and only indulge occasionally. It will help you bounce back with post pregnancy weight. Thanks for the chance.

Pregnancy tip:
Enjoy it while you are pregnant. As much as you want that baby now, your life will be forever changed! It really seems like my days got much shorter and I have a BAD case of “mommy brain” even though I never thought that would happen to me!

Thanks for sharing such a personal and touching experience! I have always enjoyed exercising but when I was pregnant I had a hard time doing my same workouts. Instead I used physical therapy software and did yoga and I enjoyed them so much. Good luck with your journey!

I want to win because I know what it feels like to ttc with no progress:-( I am not currently ttc but hope to in the near future and I would love to see if the FertilAid will help my PCOS!!

saw this giveaway on Facebook

oh, and i heard about his contest through twitter

My husband and I have been trying for 2 years in April. We’re about to start fertility testing next month, but we’ll have to use up all of our “baby fund” to do so… It’s all of the money we’ve saved the past 2 years to put toward our baby.

We’ve seen multiple couples around us conceive, give birth, and are now currently trying for their second. It’s like we’re getting lapped in the race to parenthood even though we had a full year jump start on them… It gets harder and harder everyday.

I have heard of all of these products, but have never used them. I’ve used all natural products to conceive, but have always been scared of the FertilAid! I would love to try it though!

I forgot to say that we have been trying for about a year now to no avail… sorry I forgot that!

I would love to win because we have been trying for a little over 4yrs. Doctors have told me to ‘just relax’ and it will happen. It never did. Doctors tell me that I am too young to worry about infertility, that it is something that would happen after I reach the 35yr mark (and I am 23 going on 24 I can’t wait that long for the doctor to help me.)
