TTC!

For those who don’t know, TTC is Trying To Conceive. And yes, I’m TTC now. Funny because I never thought I will, not this soon anyway.

It all started after my honeymoon, I feel a little sick, nauseous and all, and I think I was pregnant. But it turned out I didn’t. And I feel so sad and it makes me rethink what I wanted. I never wanted baby so fast, I always thought I want to enjoy my married life first. But those feeling kinda like my wake up call and that’s when I know I want a baby.

So, the next cycle (Sep-Okt 2014) is the first cycle in my TTC journey. Oh, I do all the deeds. BD, and lift up my feet, pay attention to my ovulation day, and in two week wait (the gap between Ovulation Day and period due) I feel a whole lot of new symptoms I never feel before. Cramps now and then when I usually just had cramps one day prior before AF (Aunt Flo = period) comes, my boobs was so sore, nausea, I was sure I’m pregnant!

I tested on 10 DPO, its BFN (Big Fat Negative). Then again on 12 DPO still BFN. And AF came a day early than I expected. Long story short, here I am, on a dreadful TWW. and this is my second cycle trying.

Marriage = Losing Identity?

I wonder,
when people get married and or grow old, does it mean they lose their identity?
I always loved comic books since I was little. And for me growing old wouldn’t change it. Countless people will comment if I show interest in comics or games (I’m an avid gamer as well, tho mostly I play Sims and Harvest Moon series). They said “but you’re getting married!” or “You’re too old for that things!”

Really?
Can’t we have hobbies? And if my hobbies happen to be comics and games, then is it a bad thing? Should I have adult hobbies like knitting?

The hell with what people said. Who cares?
