Archives For Uterus
This was the plan: In fact I had it mapped out in my head since I was a naive 25 year old. I was going to be one of those lucky girls who got rid of all the uterine defense mechanisms at the exact moment I was ready for a baby and… Oopsy! I’m pregnant!
I got my IUD removed in early February 2012 and actually was pretty lucky to start getting regular periods the next month – just as I had planned. It had to be my uterus giving me the thumbs up, a sign even, saying to me – I’m ready, let’s get a baby in here stat!
The hubby and I first decided that we would not “try to get pregnant” – we would just not not try. We would just go along our daily business, have some fun in the sack and simply “see what happens”. And of course I would walk the same path of my friends (as I had also always planned). So many of my girlfriends stopped their birth control pills, got funky under the sheets for fun after a great night of wine consumption and got rewarded with a cute little baby for their drunken debotchery. Surely that would be the case for me as well right?
February, March, April, May and June all rolled by without any oops. I was shocked. This is how I had it planned out in my head for years – no more birth control, baby growing in belly in 1, 2 or maybe 3 months max. I’m a planner and when things don’t go as planned I get very upset. Our rolls in the hay hadn’t decreased any so it made no sense that I was not pregnant by now! So finally in June when our hopes for an accidental pregnancy seemed to fail, my husband suggested maybe our grand idea of waiting for an oops was not the way to go. I hate when he’s right.
