So sticking with the Shettles Method my hubby and I "colored" ( as we call it in our house) twice within the days leading up to ovulation, and once just after. The last time wasn't for procreative reasons, our kids were just asleep at a decent time, so we decided to take advantage :-).
"Coloring" really does take on a whole new meaning when trying to make a baby. I didn't think I would be preoccupied with it, but even Brian said it felt different. I can understand why it can be frustrating when you are "trying" and you have expectations that are not met. I do think I will get pregnant this first try, if not we will have lots of fun trying again. With my two boys nothing was planned, nature took its course, and we were blessed to have healthy babies. I can't imagine the heartache some couples endure to conceive, we really are lucky.
So this time next week I should be able to take a pregnancy test to see if Brian's swimmers still got what it takes. I'm really excited, but know that it is ultimately not up to me when it happens. But when it does, whether it's a "he" or "she" we will be very happy.
