Taking a little break
It's been over 2½ years since we started trying for another baby and that road has been full of disappointment. I never thought it would take this long to conceive, even though our first took almost 1½ years. Last fall I got accepted to one of the university programs I applied to and I now have a year left before I graduate - or 2 years, if I for some reason decide to get a bachelor degree (highly unlikely). At the end of next spring, we have to do an internship for a few weeks before graduation. Now that it's taking us so long, it would mean that if I get pregnant within the next few months the EDD will be right around the time of my internship. I feel that would be terrible timing. So I've been doing some heavy thinking and after discussing it with my husband we have decided to take a little break from this whole TTC. At first I thought about setting up an appointment to get some contraceptive during this time, but now I'm a bit torn about it. It's taken us so long and we haven't conceived yet, if you don't count all the chemical pregnancies. So I think we will be NTNP (not trying, not preventing) until the end of september, and then we'll see what happens. Maybe we get back to TTC or stick to NTNP.
For now, I'm going to try and focus on other things that make me happy. In a few days we will be occupied with getting to know the latest family member - a cute little (for now) french lop. Her big hutch is almost done and she will have plenty of space!

So, apparantely the internship isn't when I thought it was. I thought it would be like april to june, but it's actually from the middle of january to the middle of march. But it doesn't change the fact that we need to take a break until october. I still want to graduate before a possible little one joins the family.
As for our little rabbit, we finally got her home this wednesday. It took us around 6-7 hours from the time we left until we got home. Our little Humla (Bumblebee if you translate it to english) wasn't the least bit stressed about it and she's been acclimating really quick. She's such a cutie!
