Trying to conceive
Being TTC is emotionally frustrating but it is all worth it in the end.

Many couples struggle to fall pregnant. Having a baby is an important part of life and sharing this experience with someone you love is very enriching, whether it is your husband, life partner or friends and family. Here are some bloggers who are TTC and some success stories:

"Had a quick visit form the Boss's wife this morning and she brought along their 5 month old little girl.  I was sooooooooo Broody just seeing their pretty little baby, that I am now extra eager to fall pregnant! I absolutely LOVE little babies!" EEVD

"Don't know the reason.... all I know is that everything happens for a reason and maybe this was suppose to happen....not falling that the doc could remove this cyst first......" Amadea 

"Why is it so difficult and why does it have to be such a struggle to have a baby? All I want is another baby, but it is as if I have to work harder than any person, kind of to deserve a baby. It's an never ending struggle." Ebony&ivory

TTC Month 2: My mother bought me a present; some herbal drops that help control pms.  ;-)  I think this had a lot to do with the fight we had in the midst of my serious PMS last week.  The drops apparently also "Strengthens the reproductive system", which I guess could not hurt at this stage.

Weekend shopping: Spruit is in his 19th week, I can't believe we're almost half way.  ;-)  This week Spruit's sensory development will reach it's peak and he's working on his permanent teeth buds.  ;-)

Am I pregnant??: This month I used ovulation tester kits for the first time, and they confused me completely. Every time I used them I got 2 lines, so I didn't know when the surge was. Doing the deed every second night had to suffice. Theres something weird and awkward about trying to make a baby consciously. When you are both exhausted and want to go to sleep, but the hubby says, "C'mon, you still need your donation". Hmmmm, probably TMI but hey!!

35 weeks pregnant!!: I am coming to the realisation that in a few short weeks I will be having a baby. :-O I had my scan this afternoon, baby's head is right in my pelvis (pretty much engaged now) to the point that he couldnt even get a proper head measurement.
