the difference between "Trying to Conceive" (TTC) and "Getting Pregnant"
(this is just off the top of my head....i could go on and on and on....)
-you didn't even notice you were late!!! by the time you finally tested you were 8 weeks already! crazy!
-you say things like "i guess i am just SUPER fertile"!
-you don't have any idea when you ovulate and you sorta remember your last period. maybe.
-you say "it happened the first month after i stopped taking the pill!"
-you think having a double tall latte each morning and a glass of wine each night is "totally fine!"
-everyone knows already because why keep it a secret? you want to share the good news!
-you don't remember having any symptoms.
-you can say something like "it was a pleasant surprise!"
-you don't know where your cervix is, what it feels like, or WHY on earth you would touch it.
-you have never google searched anything about pregnancy
"Trying to Conceive"
-you know how many pregnant women are in the room at any given time. there were 3 at breakfast this morning. 2 at the grocery store. 4 at Costco.
-you can not crack an egg without thinking about your cervical mucus.
-you know the date today because you have been counting days for months and months. i can tell you the day i ovulated 3 months ago. it is scorched into my mind. i can tell you today's date, my cycle day, how many days past ovulation i am and when i am going to test. it is all on the calendar i stare at ALL DAY LONG.
-you order decaf. you take all sorts of pills, vitamins, hormones, tonics, elixirs. you stand on your head. you drink extra water and say "no thanks" to a glass of wine.
-every time your tummy rumbles, your head hurts, you burp, fart, stand up too fast, feel hungry or tired.....you think "IS THIS A SYMPTOM?!!!"
-you and your cervix communicate about 20 times a day.
-you have google searched every possible thing about pregnancy
