With my first child, I got pregnant after a few months of trying (I had just turned 34). And even then, we went through so many of pregnancy tests until we finally got a positive with that pregnancy. I had suspected I was pregnant, but technology hadn’t caught up to tests back in 2005 and it didn’t show up on the tests for at least two weeks+ later. And when you are anxiously awaiting those 2 pink lines, 2 weeks seems like forever.
With my second child (this is something I really haven’t talked about on this blog yet), it took much longer to get pregnant. I would anxiously chart my cycle and after month after month I would be disappointed when those two little pink lines didn’t show up. I didn’t understand why I got pregnant easily the first time, but had a hard time with the second child. Since I was 37 (considered “old”) and we had been trying for over 6 months, we finally went to a fertility specialist and tried a cycle of Clomid. Luckily that worked and I became pregnant. I still had to take several pregnancy tests to confirm that pregnancy. Those two weeks were even more nerve wracking!
