Catching Up On Non-News

Super-Secret Post
Originally written end of months 9 and 10

I had some personal stuff get in the way of posting; I had meant to get back into my schedule of updating you at the 3-month mark at the beginning of December to mark 3 months after our summer break.

The good news is that I have one term of my Early Childhood Education program completed; the bad news is that the first two cycles after our break were still a bust.

After month 9: I didn’t record any thoughts at the time; I was also really busy starting school so it was easy to keep my mind off of it. However, I had really bought into the popular theory that my stress was causing all of our problems, so quitting my job, taking a week’s vacation followed by 5 free days around the house felt like a cure. I guess it wasn’t magic.

After month 10: It’s handy that I had already lost my faith. Such randomness for no reason is the kind of thing that breaks meĀ – I never bought the “bigger plan” story. There’s just my plan, someone else’s plan that works out perfectly, and another person who gets what I want as the thing that ruins their plan (reconciliation with anyone who got pregnant by accident seems unlikely in my current state of mind).

    What does your doctor say?

      We are respecting the standard 1 year* TTC period prior to looking for help. Since we don’t have a family doctor, we’re at the mercy of a walk-in clinic who aren’t likely to treat us any differently than any other couple under 35.

      *In this case, I’m interpreting a year to mean 13 cycles TTC; we skipped 3 so we are waiting until after 16 after we started.
