    It is the deep recognition within us that drives us to think the world should go on, and we’d like to be a part of helping it along.

    Yes. It’s taking a long time for us to conceive a second child, and in that time, my faith has been tested. Why bring another being into this troubled world? But it is a beautiful world, too, and I do so want it to go on….

    Many blessings to you on your journey!

    So true! I got pregnant the very first month of our marriage, and even though it had been something we very much wanted, it took me longer than I’d expected to get used to the idea. I didn’t expect to feel so ambivalent, even until the baby was several weeks old! It was only then that I finally began to bond with him and realize that I didn’t WANT my old life back, not at all.

    It took my mother 10 years to conceive me (her first child) and I expected it to take me a long time as well. I was wrong. My husband and I were a “just one time” kind of couple. It was a shock — to the point of being completely unprepared. I have so many friends who are struggling with conception and I always share my mother’s story with them. Who knows why it took so long? Guess I was just really suppose to happen. Also, I have a sister-in-law who struggled with fertility for years and now she’s pregnant… with triplets! (After very little medical intervention, no in vitro). Things happen when they’re suppose to happen. Best of luck to everyone on their baby-making journey! At least it’s fun trying, right?

    Such a sweet statement! I’ve birthed 3 children ~ all were “accidents.” I’ve had baby fever, even for one of those accidents. To this day, my ex-husband doubts that I didn’t get pregnant on purpose.

    Anyway, I am no, for the first time in my life, TTC… on purpose! It is SUCH a different experience! I thought it would be fun, but it can be sad.

    Timing…
