I was searching for blog posts that mentioned TTC or tagged TTC and I did not find anything related to what I was expecting. If you go to The Pirate Bay or Pirate Proxy and search for TTC you will get a plethora of torrents for courses from The Teaching Company. Not that I am endorsing the use of torrents but that is what is out there.
These educational lectures from TTC are called The Great Courses but you won’t find many searching for TGC. I don’t know why they are listed under the company name acronym but that is how to find them.
If you are familiar with TTC probably are familiar with TMS which is The Modern Scholar. They are similar and I am a fan of both. You can find them both in many libraries.
I was searching to see if anyone else was reviewing or summarizing these works. I plan on doing just this and I wanted to see what other people were saying.
Every blog post I looked at was someone who was trying to get pregnant. I thought it was odd, what did TTC have to do with trying to get pregnant, I wondered. I also currently happen to be trying to get pregnant, kinda, my feelings are mixed about that right now.
I commented on a post and I asked the blogger what she meant by TTC and she explained “trying to conceive”. Okay it all makes sense now. It wasn’t necessarily the universe telling me maybe I should be more concerned with conceiving. Or maybe it is I ended up here creating this post.
I have given birth to 4 children Adrian 17, Luna 6, Katie 3 and William would have been 1 now.
My oldest son, Adrian, has been living with his dad just over 1,000 miles away since he was almost 13.
My family is made up of my husband and I and our girls. By looking at my family, you wouldn’t know my 2 boys were missing.
Knowing about William explains the mixed feelings, he was born just over a year ago the week before Christmas. I was 28 weeks pregnant when I delivered.
If I could pick up from that 7th month of pregnancy or it would give him a new healthy body and a chance at life I would do it, but the thought of starting all over again and having the same worries waiting for tests is hard.
William had Down’s Syndrome and an Atrial/Ventricle Canal Defect. It was unbalanced at the time of the fetal echocardiogram. The doctor said a heart with that condition “is not compatible with life” but there was a good chance it would grow and become balanced and the surgery that would be required had a high success rate. We were hopeful and we were ready to take care of him.
When I came home from the hospital, without a baby, I had baby fever. I was supposed to have a baby. At that time, my husband was devastated and he didn’t want to go through that again. I wanted to wait a year to make sure my body was in the best shape to try again.
Now that my husband is ready I am not so sure anymore. So if you are looking for TTC trying to conceive. I have been there and I might be there now. My blog is still of interest to you. Since you are working so hard to have a baby, you want the best for that baby and my experiences with my children, emphasis on education, will be helpful to you.
I keep revising this post. I am trying to make it clear and interesting, but this is an emotional subject.
