and so our journey begins

if ya'll are new here you may not know but me and the hubs are a part of the second season of TLC's: A Conception Story.

Its basically 6 couples and their journey trying to conceive. Ill admit, I did kind of feel like the odd ball out when I read/watched the intro stories for the other couples. It sounded like everyone seemed to be having difficulty getting pregnant or had some kind of fertility issue. Two of the girls are going through IVF, but one is also considering adoption. One has a child but miscarried her most recent pregnancy. One couple already has i think 7 children (previous marriages and adopting nieces & nephews). Another actually has two complete female reproductive systems. And then theres us.
me and him
Whats our story you ask? Whats our journey been like? Simply put, we havent had one. This is all new to us. Its us stepping into unknown territory.

Well that all changed on July 17th. We officially took that leap. Im no longer on birth control. We are officially trying. Well maybe a better way to say that is we are no longer preventing. And although I am extremely close to my family, ironically the first person I told about this was the pharmacist at CVS. (yeah had to call and cancel my automatic refill for the BC perscription lol)

Unfortunately I feel like the outsider in the series again. All these wonderful couples are actively trying to get pregnant. Whether it be charting, OPKs, chlomid, ivf shots, etc. And us? Were kinda not worrying about it right now. We understand that we could get pregnant this month, but if it takes a few more months, thats ok too (we still got a lot of renovations happening to our house). So is it bad for me to feel this way? I kind of feel like were not taking it as serious as all the other couples. But I guess they probably all started off this way. At least when they first started trying to conceive.

Either which way, Im excited for us and what the future holds. I get anxious just thinking about the possibility of me getting pregnant the first month we try. And when the next vlog goes live on TLC you guys will be able to see how anxious the hubs is too. His vlog this month was actually very sweet and sincere. I cant wait until he become a dad. I know he'll be sooooo good at it.

Well I guess thats it for now. Maybe spread any spare baby dust on blog if you have any! :)


  1. I'm very excited for you and this journey!

  2. That is how my hubs and I were too! A month later... we were pregnant! My little man is now 6 months old! Can't wait to hear all about your journey!

  3. Found you through Polos Pearls and Pacifiers. What a cool thing to do! I am mamma to boy/girl twins after 2.5 years of infertility, so I REALLY hope you guys get lucky and never have to go through that!! Good luck!!
