18.Tell us about a pre-ttc pregnancy “scare.” With your current partner, or with an ex.
Oh, how I laugh about those scares now...seeing as it turns out there was NO WAY I could have been pregnant. Well, I don't know about the first one, as I was only 17, but the rest I am fairly certain were impossible.
The biggest one was honestly when I first started seeing Hubby. I had just split with my ex-wife, and, no lies here, had been living it up. For the first time in years I was with men, and I got around for a few weeks. I honestly hadn't tracked my cycle much while I was with her, so hadn't realized that I was not a 28-day kinda girl.
What happened is that I was dating one guy, but we were not theoretically committed (that is a LONG story). Had a drunk incident with another, then split with guy #1 and was dating Hubby. I was late. Not knowing when I O'd or ANYTHING, I was late, and had been feeling under the weather. This is actually what triggered the TTC discussion with Hubby (see the first post of this, I think). So here I was, all Mama Mia - 3 possible dads!
Wow, did I feel like a slut! I took a couple tests when I was 5 days late (assuming 28 days) - all negative. But it sure made me think. And it's when I realized I really wanted to have a baby. But what a mess that would have been!
*Shudder*. Sure taught me a lesson!
