the journey 2.0: happy and relaxed

We're into month #2 of my journey and I have to say that I'm much more relaxed this time around.  Trying to get pregnant the first time was such a long wait, with disappointment month after month for about ten months.  I remember reading somewhere that it can, on average, take up to a year or two to get pregnant!  Those statistics baffle me especially when I hear of couples who get pregnant on their first "try" or when I see shows like Teen Mom, etc.

I often wonder how long it will take to conceive.  Even if it happens now, Lil J will still be almost three years older than his soon-to-be sibling.  I think that's a good age difference.  At least Lil J will understand more when he's three and it won't be such a challenge having a two-year old toddler {boy!} plus a newborn.  Miss S is older and very self-sufficient - so much so that she often loves to help out with Lil J.

A part of me would like it to happen right away, but the other part of me is enjoying the moment and enjoying the two beautiful kids that we have right now.


  1. It will happen when you least expect it! That's what happened to my hubby and I. Our little Princess was a pleasant surprise. It will happen for you guys and I can't wait to hear about the great news!!

    I did read about those stats too and thought to myslef, "What a miracle life is!" I also read that you have a 25% chance each month during the time of ovulation. Don't know if it's true! Wow!

  2. I hope it happens very soon for you. All of my pregnancies were a total surprise. Weather Anchor Mama is right, it'll happen when you least expect it...relax, let go, and do not try to be in control. Good luck with the baby making!LOL.

  3. Thanks Mamas!! I hope it doesn't take a year but I'm going to keep trying not to stress about it :)
