When I had my second son, 4 years ago, I knew I wasn't finished. I knew that there was at least one more little being waiting to come to life. I knew though that I had to take a bit of a breather. My oldest son David will be 6 this coming Sunday and my baby Connor, is now 4 years old. Since they are only 18 mos apart, I wanted to give ourselves some time to get to know our boys etc before we added again to the family.
When I had David, I knew nothing about gender selection and really didnt care about what sex he was, I was just truly excited about having a child. Then came Connor, again, at the time I would have loved a girl but didn't know that there was any way at all to "sway the odds" so again we had another boy. How I love my boys...they are so sweet and tough at the same time...you can see them becoming independant every day right before your eyes...boys truly are the best and I have no regrets at all, my little men are my life and I so cannot wait to see what kind of MEN they become.
As I spend my time with my boys playing pirate island, playing Queen of the Kindgom with them being my Knights, as I watch Power Rangers and Ninja Turtles, as we play with trains and cars, I cant help but ache for a little girl to play with. I loved dolls, make-up, playing house, girlie cartoons and toys which my little one Connor calls "Cooky". I long for long hair to braid and curl and someone to just girlie up, to become my little girlfriend etc. This is where my journey starts...
I just went off the pill yesterday. I plan to chart my cycle and learn how I work over the next three months and then take it from there. I have spent a lot of time researching different natural, low-tech methods and after coming across the journals on this site...thought maybe a low-tech journal would be helpful to some women as well. That is why I am sharing my story here.
I hope that my babble and questioning and overall information can be of help to anyone else who decides to start this type of journey. Right now I am in research phase. Swore that I was going to do Shettles method as Ive read the book twice now, however, after really diving into this site and others, It seems to me that your environment is really the only thing you can control. I am going to begin taking the supps etc to make myself acidic, I know Im going to start with a 3-day cutoff, no orgasm [N] (this better be quick lol), and shallow penetration. So far that is my plan.
So, Im off to charting cycles, Ive been on the pill now again (since I had the boys) for 3 years and Im hoping my cycle isnt too crazy. Ill keep you all posted. Send pink dust my way...this is going to be an amazing journey!! [:-)]_
