"They" Say

Working out hasn’t helped.

“They” say that chances of conceiving are decreased by stress. This summer, my husband finished law school and took the Bar exam. I quit my job, and we moved across the country for his new job. Some stress was involved.

We just need to cut down on stress. Then we will conceive for sure.

At least we know another couple who is in a similar situation.

A Prayer of Being Left Behind

Dear Lord,

My sister and her husband announced baby number two last night. We would love to have a cousin to announce, but are waiting for Your timing. We are so hopeful to be parents. May we trust You more in the face of each delay.

In Jesus' Name,

Another no. Maybe something is wrong. I probably need to exercise more.

This is getting old.

Okay, let’s actually TRY to conceive. I’m sure we just need to be more intentional.

Wait, I think I feel different. I must be pregnant!

A Prayer for God's Timing

Lord, we would really like to have a child. So far, pregnancy achievement has been more difficult than expected. Please give us peace to trust in Your timing. May we honor You in our desires and actions.

In Jesus' Name,

A Prayer of Disappointment

Lord, we were a little bummed by the negative pregnancy tests today, but are trusting in Your perfect timing. Please help us prepare to be godly parents.

In Jesus' Name,

A Prayer for Equipping

Dear Lord,

Please may we be equipped now to be parents in the future (or soon...?). Please cause us to conceive in Your perfect timing.

In Jesus' Name,

No, Again

No, again.

Wow. We could spend a fortune on pregnancy tests. I need to be more patient. The “no” becomes obvious eventually.

Nope. I’m not pregnant.

That’s fine. It’s only been one month. Who gets pregnant the first month?

Sunday, January 30, 2011

Maybe I’m pregnant. I looked up pregnancy symptoms and some of them apply. I should start taking prenatal vitamins just in case.

Also, I should start avoiding lunch meat and canned tuna; I have heard they can be harmful during pregnancy.

If I got pregnant now, the baby wouldn’t be due until after the Bar exam. We decided that I can stop charting fertility and see what happens. Goodbye thermometer!
