In Myanmar we decided that we will not immediately start ‘properly’ trying to conceive. I do want to keep things fun. I feel the moment I ovulate every month, so maybe I can just seduce Denny without him knowing about the ovulation. In March we had no luck, but I didn’t expect to be pregnant immediately. I don’t mind either. I’m still in my “Denny-wants-a-baby-with-me-happy-mode” and I’m enjoying that so much that right now not being pregnant yet just doesn’t matter.
Because we do suspect that it might not be that easy to get pregnant, we make a deal to keep talking about things and not become a couple who just has sex every month to make a baby. It has to stay fun – that’s a huge priority. I don’t want to run to the hospital immediately, but rather to enjoy the here and now and Denny agrees completely.
Now we just hope we can stick to the decisions we’ve made and not fall into all the potential ‘traps’ waiting for us if a pregnancy doesn’t happen quickly.
