So, Um, Yeah, Wow (Updated)
How’s this for funny? I am in the 2ww. Yep.
No, it wasn’t on purpose; it just kinda … happened. I didn’t really even think anything of it until I realized I was on day 13 of my cycle and we had not used a condom. Oops.
Statistically, of course, you have only a 20% chance of getting pregnant for any given cycle, even with perfect timing.
It’s just that it would be fantastically bad timing for me professionally and thus I am preparing myself. I know the odds are against me, but it only takes one time and, for me, the one time in my life I have unprotected sex while not actively trying to get pregnant … well, it feels like I just tempted fate.
I started taking baby aspirin, took some extra folic acid along with my usual prenatal, and bought some pregnancy tests at Target. So, um, yeah, wow.
Update: I leave for NYC on the 13th of November for what was supposed to be a raucous good time, complete with lots of gin and tonics. I will test on the 12th, which will be about 13 dpo, to see if I can, um, drink.
