It took us awhile to conceive our first son. I was very eager to have our first baby but I was very disappointed when it did not happen right away. I began researching ways to increase our chances of conception.
We were married in a Catholic church and part of the requirement was that we needed to attend a natural family planning class. This is NOT the rhythm method! If I remember correctly, they mentioned the Billings method. Along the way, I discovered a fertility microscope, the Fertility Awareness Method and the Clear Blue Easy Fertility Monitor. All of them are great but for me, the Clear Blue Easy Fertility Monitor was the most fool-proof/lazy person proof.
None of them made the two week wait any easier. I don’t know if this is because I knew the indications of a pregnancy so when I didn’t see those indications, it would be very disappointing.
I am very grateful to have been blessed with a wonderful baby who is the light of our lives.
