I'm a wife, a daughter, a sister, and I'm working towards being a mom. I love children and the joy and excitement that they bring.
My husband and I have been trying to start a family since September 2007 and it has been an emotionally rocky road. We're praying everyday that God gives us understanding and patience to rest in the fact that His timing is more perfect than we can ever imagine.
On his way to TWO!
And I know there'll be days When this life brings me pain And if that's what it takes to praise you Jesus, bring the rain

Ahhh yes. The big t-w-o. The last time I took BCP was two years ago. I never got my period after band camp was over so I didn't start my next pills. We discussed it and decided to "see what happens" and "let nature take it's course". LOL! Ah, to be naive again... What a crazy journey we've had.
I decided today that I wanted to come out of the infertility closet on facebook. It made me super nervous and I toiled over how to word it. I am prepared for the flood of stupid that will inevitably head my direction at any time now but I almost feel better after putting it out there. I hate keeping secrets (I'm usually terrible at it) and part of me feels like I'm living a lie by keeping it bottled up. Not only that but I can't stop thinking of all the other people I could be helping that are going through the same thing!
Of course I totally see the other side of this where it's no one's dang business as to what's going on in my uterus and how much sex we're having but I think I can sassily deflect those comments.
Let's be real though - I'm still not giving my blog address out to people. I'd go nuts if I couldn't come here to complain about people telling me to "stop trying to hard" and to "adopt a kid and you'll get pg cause it always happens like that"! It'd just be silly to do that! :)
