Trying To..


Yes, the time has arrived. I figured I would just put it out there and let you guys know.

 We have been trying to get pregnant for just a couple of months now.

My greatest desire is to become a mother and have the privelage
to nurture and raise one of Heavenly Father's precious children.

It has been exciting these past few months,  knowing that hopefully any day
now I will be able to read a test that shows up "Pregnant"

I picture and imagine that moment in my head. My heart longs for this day.

Sitting there with my heart beating a gazillion miles a minute hoping
and praying that the test will come out positive.

Reading it, crying and praising God for His goodness and His promises.

The overwhelming excitement and joy of telling my
Husband and eventually family and friends.

This is what I hope for. I hope that it will happen soon.

Even though it's an exciting time right now, it has also
been stressful and disappointing too. Every month that approaches
I get a test and think "okay this might be it!"

Then its negative....

Month after month, after month....

I get disappointed. I get sad.

Then I have to wait another month.

But throughout all of this its' teaching me alot
patience and to rely soley on the Lord and His plan for my life.

I have come to realize that I can only do so much and that
ultimately it is not in my hands. It's in the Lords hands and His perfect timing.

I believe that sometimes God doesn't give you what you want when you want it,
not beacuse you don't deserve it, but because you deserve so much more and He
has something really really big in store.

So I am going to be hopeful, prayerful
and wait on the Lord to see just what He has in store!


Are you trying to get pregnant?
I would love to hear some of your thoughts and stories too!

We're not currently trying, but in the process of discussing and figuring out when we want to start trying. But believe me, I'm starting to get baby fever!

Hope you have a great day!

I am in the same boat as you. We have been trying and every time the test says negative or I start I become so sad and depressed. My poor hubs never knows what to say. I have realized I have to really put all my faith and trust in my heavenly father to know he will bless us with a child when the time is right. So hard though. Trust me. I totally know what you are going through!!

XOXO

it took us about a half a year to conceive. I’m now nearly 3 months into my first pregnancy :) One thing I found was that learning to trust God while we were waiting really helped prepare me for trusting Him with the life of this baby once it was conceived. I hope that encourages you :)

Good luck to you too!

It makes me feel so much better to know that I am not the only one going through all of this. My heart and prayers go out to all of those who have infertility issues. Some are so strong and still press forward in faith. I admire them so much.

Aww thank you Valerie! Your thoughts and prayers mean so much!

Congrats on your first pregnancy! How exciting! So happy for you!

Never thought of it like that. Just thought to myself that it's good that God is teaching me a lot of patience because you need lots of that with kids! I have been realizing to that through all of this I am leaning even more than ever on God and His goodness...my relationship with Him feels stronger and stronger as each day passes.

Thank you for your encouragement!

I had my babies a while ago. But, there is a bit of a poem that comes to mind by Nathaniel Hawthorn. It goes something like, "Happiness is like a butterfly, the more you chase it, the more it eludes you. But, if you turn your attention to other things for just a moment, it will come and sit softly on your shoulder". Don't put so much pressure on yourself. Hang in there, it'll happen.

So exciting! My husband and I have been trying for over two years now. We've had our struggles but know that the Lord has a plan for us. My advice....be excited. It gets hard to be excited when every month you get negatives. As hard as it is keep trying to be excited and make it like the first month you started trying. Make it a fun process! Take it from someone who has learned that the hard way. Let me know if you ever need someone to chat with. It helps to have friends in this process! Congrats on trying!!! So fun!

How many months have you been trying? It took us 6 months to conceive our first. That came as a surprise. Now looking back on it, the wait was good for preparation. What worked for us finally was ovulation tests. Got pregnant the first month using those.

That is awesome! I had a baby last year April and just from my experience on trying is that i have none. She was a beautiful surprise. I personally believe trying not to focus so much on it and just enjoying life as wife is the way to go. The mind connects to the body in a crazy way and tells it what to do. Relax and let it happen organically. Love life, stay healthy and go about your day like there is no other. Give your body time. Get all the rest you can now, spoil yourself whenever you can because soon enough it is all going to be about your little one when the time comes. It will happen.

I love this poem. Thank you Lisa.

Aww you are too sweet Sydney! Thank you for the advice. I will keep you in my thoughts....

We have only been trying for about 4 months, but REALLY trying for only about 2. I have thought about using those so I might just give those a try! Thanks Marjorie!

Congrats! That is so awesome!
I have been slowly switching my thinking. Putting it all in the Lords hands, eating very healthy, excercising and taking some "me" time to just relax.
Thanks for taking the time to stop by and comment Busola!
