I wanted to avoid the fertility forums because this post might seem insensitive over there for those who are struggling.
The first time I became pregnant, it was only trying during a single month and we happened to be successful. I had made up an excel chart of the month I would prefer to give birth, backwards calculated to when I would conceive, and planned my attack. And it worked, much to my amazement. I did use an ovulation kit at the time and think this helped (thanks ebay and china!).
That went on to become my baby boy who turns two in April:-) Simply amazing.
This past december, DH and I had intercourse once in like three months. We have been under a lot of stress. This was the first time he did not 'withdraw' ever without a condom and he even said then it was intentional so that I would be pregnant from it. Amazingly, he was right. Even he didn't really believe it, and we were a while from planning to get pregnant but he got a 'wild hair' and gave it a shot (no pun intended).
Even though I was far from prepared for the current pregnancy (I have more than a lot on my plate), I know what a blessing it is, but was shocked nonetheless.
These are the only times one or both of us has tried to get me pregnant and it worked without fail. Unusual or no?
On one hand I am really proud of it, on the other I am really ashamed that I would find something so absurd to be 'proud' of as my bodily function, as I could have easily been one of the many women struggling to get pregnant. I will try to raise my self esteem, I swear!
I guess I am just grateful.
Anybody else have a similar story?
