So, the moment we’ve been waiting for has arrived. CD 1 of cycle two after my miscarriage.
As I prepare to jump back into the world of trying to conceive, I know that I need to get over something that’s bugged me for a while: the acronyms. Ever since we started trying to conceive our first in spring of 2009, I’ve lurked on fertility and motherhood-related blogs, message boards and websites. When I first started reading, I was overwhelmed by the plethora of weird acronyms (starting with “TTC”, which is the name of the public transit system where I live!) I don’t know why the acronyms threw me off so much. I work for a government organization so I should be used to speaking in letters!
When I finally learned what all the acronyms stood for, I decided that I hated them. “AF” made me shudder. “DH” was just too cheesy for me. You get the picture. I swore I would never use them. But, since I was only a lurker and never a poster, I didn’t need to.
Now that I’ve chosen to write about my journey, I’ve realized that the acronyms make things easier and are just part of this whole world. So, here I am, getting over it.
AF has arrived. It’s CD 1. I’m now ready to TTC post-mc. I’ve bought my OPKs and I’m taking my BBT. Hoping for my BFP.
How’d I do?
Anyway, for a very long time now, I’ve dreaded CD 1. But today I’m actually kind of happy that it’s here. Of course, I wish I wasn’t in this situation at all and that I was 23 weeks pregnant like I was supposed to be. But, since this is where I find myself, I’m ready to move forward. Let’s get this show on the road!
