With Arie, I took 3 pregnancy tests.
The first one was because I had a lot of symptoms. Then Jack and I went to the store and I bought the strongest test that I knew of... a FRER (First Response Early Response) and a digital. Both of those came back positive.
I believed those tests.
For some reason, I am struggling to believe the 20 or so tests that I have taken. Just kidding, it's probably been about 12.
Since I am still exclusively nursing Arie and he has such a sensitive little system when we have tried adding in solid foods, we were planning to wait until closer to one year old to really introduce solids. Then, I discovered that I was pregnant. I assumed that I would just carry on as normal nursing and then I started looking in to it.
In my research, I have discovered that I can't find any other moms (I'm sure there are some, but I can't find them!) out there who have conceived while breastfeeding a baby who still nurses every 1-3 hours around the clock. Sure, there are a lot of people who have conceived while the baby they are nursing is a little over one year old, but NONE while the baby is 7 months old and still exclusively breastfed.
Then I began to realize that it was very highly unlikely that even the most fertile of couples would conceive in this scenario. And then add in our male factor and female factor infertility. Yup, God does WHATEVER he wants. Believe in Miracles, folks. Miracle baby #2 is baking right now.
I will be 5 weeks pregnant tomorrow.
