I am going to be fastidious about my flanking maneuvers, where I will employ my defensive positions. The objective is to STAY pregnant once I get pregnant.
Oh, and I want to be very militaristic about what I consume, what activities I participate in all while trying to maintain a zen state of mind. After all, it has been know that increased stress & feelings of anxiety can have a hand in pregnancy loss.
I see myself as the newly pregnant general holding the line, defending my bun baking temple. I will have the strategic advantage this time of deploying progesterone suppositories, what I will refer to as my anti-aircraft defense weapon deflecting any possible attempt to deplete my hormone reserves. I will have frequent ultrasounds to check on the progress of the objective (my baby snuggling in good and tight). The intelligence I will receive in those first few weeks will be mind-boggling compared to my other campaigns to stay pregnant.
I also realize that Operation Stay Baby Stay will need the emotional and spiritual support of my friends and family, just like a country needs the support of it's citizens to fight a war successfully. So at this time, I am making a call for any and all possible allies to step forward and take up arms (hugs, positive thoughts, prayers, baby dust) with me.
Even though I am not 100% sure that Operation Stay Baby Stay will be a go for next month, I am starting the recruiting process now for my "army". Won't you sign up for a tour of duty? :)
