Taking Charge of your Fertility

Since spilling the beans I have had lots of helpful tips about how to get pregnant.  I love how caring and thoughtful everyone has been.. thank you to all.

One suggestion that I got a lot was to read the book "Taking Charge of your Fertility".  

One of my sweet friends at work actually took charge of my fertility and got the book for me :) She's adorable. 
 So... if you didn't know it's beastly! A very thick book..

When I got it I felt like this: 

I was ready to read this book and see all of the wonderfully helpful hints it had to make me pregnant.  I thought to myself "Bring on the pregnancy!!!"

I got reading and my face started looking like this:

I had heard about a lot of the hints it talked about.  But it was nice to read about them a little  a lottle more in depth than I had before.  Some things made me feel relaxed and others.. not so much

I will admit there are some pictures that made my face look like this:

They just popped out of nowhere and I wasn't fully prepared for them hahahahaha yeah.. 

Let's just stay that luckily Woody studied Biology so he was not as bug eyed as me ;)

But we are pressing forward.  I currently have my chart on my nightstand.  I take my temperature in the morning first thing (first thing as in, can't get out of bed until you take it, first thing).  I will admit this is difficult simply because I have to read the tiny screen and have enough comprehension and thinking capability to write down my temperature.  

Seriously... you would never know how hard it is to do that before you are fully awake. until you do it.  It makes me feel very silly how much I struggle reading that dang thing.

Besides taking charge of my fertility...

I've been over emotional this week.  It has been that cursed wonderful time of the month for me.  Where I am reminded of my potential to be a mother. 

I saw a newborn baby at school... I about lost it.  It was the first time ever that I have seen a baby and had that gut dropping, heart stopping experience.  I love kids, and usually seeing them and playing with them brings me joy.  But not this time. I blame my hormones.  

I knew that I couldn't look and stare and wonder at the baby.   I was in the gym looking at presentations with my class at the time, so I quickly found a student and asked them to show me their favorites to distract me.  I'll be totally honest, it took some serious will power for me to stay in that gym. 

My week got better.  I went to the Temple. I had a wonderful experience with my Heavenly Father speaking to my heart.  He loves me and takes great care of me.

Here is another lovely scripture from the Book of Mormon this time:

Alma Chapter 37:36

"Yea, and cry unto God for all thy support; yea, let all thy doings be unto the Lord, and whithersoever thou goest let it be in the Lord; yea, let all they thoughts be directed unto the Lord; yea, let the affections of thy heart be placed upon the Lord forever."

Remember, the Lord is on your side.  Always.
