Baby, infertility

My Triangle Family

I haven’t given an update on trying to conceive in a while so here goes…

My last month of Clomid did not result in a pregnancy.  Since I had such a bad reaction to the Clomid that month we’ve decided to just let things play out naturally for the time being.  We know that this will most likely not end in a new baby but TTC with fertility medications is hard on my body and the whole process is hard on our relationship.  I know that I’ve been happier in my marriage since the birth of our son and the break from TTC, I think it’s safe to say my husband would agree.

Besides the fact that it appears I can’t conceive another child, I’ve kind of been in love with my “Triangle Family” lately.  Since we’ve moved to North Carolina and I’ve become a stay at home mom, we’ve been getting out more.  It’s been a lot of fun exploring our new area.  We have more family time now that I stay home.  I used to spend 1.5 hours commuting a day to my job across town and Teddy went to daycare where he was constantly coming down with some illness and spreading it to us.  I look forward to exploring and family time on the weekends now instead of vegging out on the couch trying to relax because my work week was so stressful.

Another reason I feel like I’ve been extra in love with my triangle family is two groups that I have joined on Facebook.  One is for parents of one child considering being “one and done.”  This group has a lot of my same feelings of being on the fence of should we or shouldn’t we so it’s nice to connect with people having the same feelings I am and being able to talk to them through.  Also they do a really good job stressing all the positive aspects of only having one child.

Here is a link to One and Done on the Fence in case you want to check it out.

The other group is One and Done (Not by Choice).  A lot of these ladies are like myself and have infertility or some other underlying medical condition to blame for their one and done status.  I like this group because I feel like everyone there knows how painful it is to want another child and not be able to have one.  I lot of these families have struggled with infertility for years and to see how much they love and cherish their “only” is heartwarming.

It’s really nice to find some like-minded people to connect with especially since I’ve recently moved to a new state and don’t have any friends here.
