Except for potty training the puppies we were navigating this marriage thing pretty well. So, why is it when things are running smoothly and life is running like a well-oiled machine that people have a desire to complicate things? Maybe they feel life shouldn’t be easy. If you are not burning the candle at both ends does that mean you are not living? We both worked, we had our two fur babies, and we just bought our own condo so what could we add to complicate this – of course – children. Not just one or two let’s throw four into the equation. So much for an easy, uncomplicated life. We had only been married 5 months when we decided to start “trying” to get pregnant. I know they tell you to enjoy your life as a married couple first before you start having kids but we were ready. Derek was 30 years old and I was 27. We had dated for five years and had already done a lot together as a couple. We went on cruises, trips to Vegas, stayed out all hours of the night, and laid in bed until noon – all the things people do prior to children. Besides, we were only going to “try” and get pregnant. I had been on birth control pills for years so it could take a while. We started trying in October and by November I was pregnant.
