I didn’t mean to exclude those of you ttc/are in the process of adopting.
I’ll make a page for that, too (:
just like this~~
What’s your bad habit? Mine was drinking too much soda. I knew I drank too much of it, but I liked it. Before I got pregnant with my twins, I tried to kick that habit, partly because I was trying to lose weight and get into better shape before going through in-vitro fertilization, and partly…
I never had trouble getting pregnant when we got our first 3 kids. Last year in June, my husband said he wanted one more. I thought, WOW, 4 kids, I’m not sure. We did start trying though and as the months went by and I saw BFN after BFN, I realized that I wanted a baby as much if not more than he did. After 10 long months, we conceived and I was sooooooo happy! I was sick as a dog and felt horrible, but I was so excited to be pregnant. Our new baby was due on his sister’s 4th birthday. How exciting! Then in my 16th weekk, i went to the ER with a kidney stone and foudn out that our sweet baby boy’s heart had stopped beating. After 18 hours of horrible labor (plus the passing of the kidney stone) I was devistated. I have spent the last 5 months trying to rise above this.
I know you are wondering how this is encouraging…… In the last 18 months, I have been relying on my happieness to come rather than finding it in what i have. At first it was “I will be happy when I’m pregnant” then “I will be happy when the baby gets here” then “I will be happy when I can be pregnant again.” I have learned in all of this that, while there is nothing wrong with hope (which is hard to come by for me right now) I have to be happy and not forget to live while I’m waiting for my blessing to come. I can’t put life on hold because then I will be miserable. So, whether this is your 1st or 4th that you are TTC, don’t forget to enjoy life and live it daily, don’t jsut wait for that BFP to be your happieness.
I wish you all baby dust and pray that AF stays far away this month! - Chrissy (A word of encouragement to those ttc)
mysticdoe asked: BFP?! CONGRATS!!! details?!
Oh, no no no no NO. I’m SO sorry for that confusion.

Someone asked me to post positive, encouraging things for those of you who ARE ttc. I didn’t mean to confuse you, I’m sorry :/
Many women experiencing infertility will go through almost anything in order to improve their chances of conceiving. From invasive and sometimes painful diagnostic tests to treatments that can have drastic physical and emotional effects, women I know personally have been through the gamut. I know…
