So my last entry was all about how I start things—or kinda think about starting things—only to lose interest or get distracted by something else soon after. Follow-through is not my strongest skill, as evidenced by the string of abandoned hobbies/ideas/projects in my past.
But, yesterday, I finally finished something that I had worked on for a long time. Something I had written—years ago—and always intended to get up for sale. One thing or another always stopped me, whether it was my lack of self-confidence, or a depression surge, or just plain no time to deal with it. It was always something.
Well at the beginning of this week, I decided that letting that book rot on my hard drive wasn’t doing me any favors. So I focused, combed through it, and got it formatted properly for upload. And as of yesterday afternoon, I have a book ready for sale.
It took us 4 years to get pregnant with our first, and in that amount of time I amassed a large amount of knowledge about trying to conceive (TTC) and how things worked. It’s amazing how fuzzy you can be on the details of conception, your period, and sex when you’re not TTC.
Pregnancy was one of those things that was just supposed to “happen”. Unprotected sex? AUTOMATIC PREGNANCY. Well, it doesn’t always work like that, and sometimes it’s just because you’ve got the details wrong in how conception (and your body) really works.
It’s not a “how-to” guide, more of an “FYI” type of thing, written in an easy-to-read style that doesn’t bog you down with a lot of technical terms and medical jargon. If you come away with even a few things you never knew before, I consider that a success.
So check it out if a baby is in your future. Pass the link around, if you feel so inclined. I would greatly appreciate it!
