Wordless Wednesday: Preparing for Pregnancy

This week we asked: What does preparing for pregnancy look like?

fertility fortune
This is the fortune Stephanie got the first month she was trying to conceive (and she conceived the next cycle).

conception mandala
This is the in-progress conception mandala Stephanie and her husband made together
(good reference: the book The Conception Mandala).
Stephanie blogs at spirit and seed.

Anxious for another baby, Momma Jorje & her husband got rid
of their IUD and started ovulation testing.

sad and contemplative on the beach
For Lauren and Sam, preparing for a second pregnancy meant mourning the loss of the first one and waiting patiently for healing. (Don’t worry — this story has a happy ending in three-year-old Mikko.)

Tintagel Castle steps
Preparing for pregnancy has also meant getting some of the travel bug out of their system —
whether to impractical places when it was just the two of them (above),
or to visit family with their three-year-old so they can sit tight when the new baby arrives!
Lauren blogs at Hobo Mama.

pregnant belly picture
Christy says: “When I think of preparing for pregnancy this is what I think of: The beautiful big belly at the end.” Christy is 38 weeks in the picture, with Kimmy, 22 months old, and Sariah inside!
Christy blogs at 3 Moms and a Kitchen.

    Lovely pictures!

    When I think of preparing for pregnancy, I think of doing lots of reading and research, charting, checking CM, acupuncture, taking lots of meds and supplements and yoga {that was my journey anyways!}

    Happy WW!
