As most of you know Lew and I have been trying for number #2 for a while now.
At times I have been depressed, could care less if another one came a long, to desperately wanting another child. It has been hard seeing other friends get pregnant and even bloggy friends conceive and blog about it. I have tried to be supportive but in the privacy of my own little world I have been breaking down.
Lew's mom had been asking us for a while when we were going to start trying again. We have kept it pretty quiet just because, who really wants someone asking you each month if you are pregnant? She asked Lew a couple weeks ago again if we were trying and he hated lying, so he told her yes, but we weren't having much luck. Love how he puts it, only a man would say it that way.
Fast forward to yesterday, when a package comes for me and it is an ovulation tester and pregnancy test kit. Along with it is a list of websites and "helpful" hints of how to conceive and if you want a boy or a girl. I was not upset by any means that she sent it because this is definitely my mil and I was actually happy that she was kind of acting "motherly" towards me. It felt nice.
Anyway. On the list of helpful hints and tips, it mentioned taking mucinex around the time you are ovulating. Have you ever heard of that? Until I googled it, I had no idea what it would do to help us. After much googling, I came to understand that it thins everything out down ''there'' so that the troops have a nice ride to the egg.
So...considering my ovulation day is coming up, I started taking mucinex to help out those troops! It is actually helping out the little chest congestion I had too! Who knew mucinex was multi-purpose. Who knows if this will work, I will try anything once at this point.
I wasn't sure about clicking publish on this post but after reading many of my blog friends and twitter friends who are at blissdom, post about being yourself, and putting yourself out there, I thought, why not?
So, here I am, trying to conceive a baby and taking mucinex, that's pretty out there. For me.
I will do anything for it.
