Hey there guys! Okay, so as you all know I have been going through fertility treatment during quarantine and it has been easy thankfully because I am on the clomid and not doing IVF yet. Since I only have to take the fertility pills I just have to worry about taking the allotted amount of pills and take at home ovulation tests so that we can be on the right track for conception.
This has been a rollercoaster for me with my body but I have taken on a new outlook with all of this stuff and that is PUPO! I will explain what that means in a second. What you have to know first is that when you are TTC (trying to conceive) there are a lot of acronyms when you are talking about trying to get pregnant. This is how you describe lots of things and especially things concerning your own fertility. Now, this brings me to the acronym that I mentioned above PUPO and it means Pregnant Until Proven Otherwise. There is a reason that I am going with this one and that is because it really moves your mindset and attitude into a more positive light. Okay, so with that said I can tell you that it is not an easy road when you are TTC because the act of getting pregnant when you are trying is not always easy. People say just relax and it will happen or they say its so easy to get pregnant or I'm so fertile I get pregnant like nothing; now for some people that is true but not for everyone.
I know from experience that it is not easy and thinking it will happen just because you wish it to happen means nothing. When you have problems getting pregnant then you know that it is not as easy as having sex. There are steps to getting pregnant like timing sex, fertility drugs, fertility doctor appointments, getting and staying healthy, coming up with a plan and choosing what road you are going to go down whether you go on with procedures or adoption. Having a child is a blessing and to be honest I am fine with how ever things end up with our journey because at the end of the road that we are on we will have a baby of our own.
So, as I said before this journey has been a crazy rollercoaster for me and my hubby! My body has been through it so far with this journey and this second round of Clomid has been no exception for me. This time around things have been more hectic for my body with my hormones and with all the things that are changing for the cycle with my body. I am hoping that this time it sticks but you never now until you know. For now my hubs and I are keeping the mindset of PUPO. I have been having so many things happening to me physically so it is a bit confusing like most of this journey has been and for that all I can say is having a good doctor is key to having a solid plan and moving towards your goal of being parents.
Well, for now I am going to leave it here and hope that this cycle turns out to be the one and then when I have something to update you guys on I will. I can't wait till we have a little bun in the oven. All right guys stay safe and healthy. Till next time!
