Pregnancy Adventure Update

Not pregnant this cycle.

We'll try for a December baby then. :)

I have a friend who's six weeks pregnant but who might also have a blighted ovum. How sad. I was so excited for her. And how distressing that having a blighted ovum is such a common occurrence. A friend who is also trying to conceive (through IUI or intra-uterine injections) just had her fourth IUI and still no success. She knows a lot of girls too who are unsuccessful at conceiving or having healthy pregnancies.

We were wondering why all these things are cropping up so frequently now. She was thinking... could it be cellphones? Because that's one technology that is so rampant and directly affecting this generation of mothers-to-be. Oh I don't know what to think anymore.

All I know is that we will try again to conceive this cycle and pray it's a healthy pregnancy. Not sure yet if we'll go for another round of LIT. I wish I didn't have to.

My friend told me that maybe I'm not willing to go through all the "hassles" because I don't want it that much. I think that's true. It would be nice to have kids. But I'm just not willing to put stuff in my body that may someday create problems for the kids I'll be having.

I get scared when pregnant women tell me about hormone injections and other stuff they are made to take so the pregnancy would hold up. I don't want that for my baby. I don't like anything forced. I'm more inclined to support the idea that a healthy pregnancy will thrive on its own, without much meddling from drugs and other whathaveyous.

So there.

P.S. Going for a perm today. That's one of the things I promised I'd do if I'm not pregnant this cycle. That and eat tuna sashimi. Haha.
