… and replaced it with this when-is-the-best-time-to-try
Yup, it’s offical. With Best Friend’s wedding just over a week away, we officially are in the “safe zone.” There will be no altar-puking. There will be no dress-not-fitting drama. I will be feeling and looking great on her big day, so I can relax and enjoy it, which is a huge relief.
We were originally planning on trying on her actual wedding night, but a whole lot of boring cycle-business means the best time to try in July is mid-week — just few days before the wedding. So we are going to try then, for a couple of reasons …
A) I’m impatient
B) It’s unlikely that it will happen on the first try
C) Even if it worked, I will not be puking or bulging three days after conception. I won’t even be able to take a test until the end of the month.
D) I want to conceive in July, August or September (if humanly possible) so I’m not nine months preggo in the summer heat
So yup, a week from now is when the big TTC journey begins! Darling Husband Some people thought it was not necessary to announce my cycle to the entire blogosphere, but as I explained (very patiently) to him …
I’m Heather Laura Clarke. I’m a writer living in beautiful Nova Scotia, I have a 12-year-old son and a 10-year-old daughter, I married my high school sweetheart, and this is the story of my handmade life.
I have depression and anxiety, and I fight like hell every day to keep them from taking over my life. Creating things helps.
Whether I’m writing novels, decorating a room, busting out my power tools to build furniture, getting muddy in the pottery studio, sewing clothes, or cross-stitching a swear word, I’m all about using my creativity to craft a life I love.
I’ve been writing this blog since 2009, so if you dig deep into the archives, you’ll meet a bright-eyed 25-year-old newlywed who was basically obsessed with having kids, buying a cozy house, and supporting herself full-time with her writing. (Spoiler alert: she got exactly what she wanted.)
