Big day today folks, officially removed the Paraguard IUD. It was a LOT less painful coming out than going in. Besides the normal advice that I should be doing kegels (blah, I know), I got some fun pregnancy advice. The doctor told me I should start taking a prenatal vitamin again (blah) as well as folic acid. She also told me that my husband should stop sitting in hot tubs and saunas. So there, at least Uri will have to change ONE thing about his life. But then once I'm pregs, he's home free of course. Sigh. Guys, they have such the easy part of this whole mess. The hot tub thing was really a big point this doctor was making because she went on to tell me that once you roast all the little swimmers, it takes three months for the supply to build back up again. (Bad news for us since we have a hot tub and Uri was just in it a few days ago.) But it's so weird for me to think that something that simple can kill all that sperm. If that were true, why wouldn't guys just go in the hot tub once a week instead of us ladies having to deal with birth control? Anyways, just a thought.
So wow - here we go again. The getting pregnant roller coaster! Although this time I won't be such a freak about it. Last time I remember actually buying pregnancy tests in bulk because I was using them so much. Hilarious. I was actually trying to find out BEFORE I missed a period. Ha ha ha. I don't think I'll be so crazy about it this time. And actually, I think that will add a lot to the fun. It won't be all so scary and first-timey. I am an OLD PRO, right? My loins are up for this!
Last time it took us five months - it will be interesting to see how long this takes. One thing for certain is that we won't um, be trying as many times. Uri had this big idea that once a day was the optimum trying amount last time. Not gonna happen this time folks. Not gonna happen. Here we go!
