See? And on Nov 14:
The Big Decision
After much soul-searching, head-scratching and all sorts of deep-thinking, my husband and I finally came to a decision.
We have decided not to try to conceive at this point. Neither one of us feel quite right about it. So we are going to put off having a family.
I feel relieved, like a weight has been lifted off of me. There are so many things that I want and need to do before I have a baby.
We made a list of all the reasons to TTC now, not to TTC now, and what we'd do if we didn't TTC now. It really helped us think through it.
What's the point? Well, I looked at my charts on www.fertilityfriend.com and on those days mentioned above I was in the "green egg" and "yellow egg" part of my chart, meaning that it was the day before my predicted ovulation and the day of my predicted ovulation.
Morning After the Decision
I woke up feeling much more relaxed. I was really worried about how to make the whole baby thing work... I think I have been daydreaming about a baby as an escape from all the stress here.
One day, we will have a family. Of course, infertility with increasing age is a concern. But if we decide not to have a child while in residency, we can try later. We are also very highly interested in adopting a child.
