Cycle Day 25 of TTC Cycle 7 - 10 DPO Every time I sit down to write about how I'm feeling, I panic. I immediately feel flooded with emotions and the thoughts come fast, furiously piling on top of each other, fighting for dominance. I get overwhelmed with the idea of trying to "catch" a… Continue reading Focused on the wrong things.
On cycle day (CD) 9, I was at the gym doing a barbell bench press and, upon lowering the bar to my chest, I felt a twinge of pain shoot through my left breast. Wait. Huh? I completed the repetition and lowered the bar to my chest again, just to be sure of what I… Continue reading TTC Over 40 | Cycle 6 – Day 14: Dropped the ball?!

There’s barely any… Continue reading TTC Over 40 | Day 14: “Just relax and it will happen” – Part I
Cycle Day 7. Happy and blessed Monday to you! It's one week after we lost our second pregnancy and I'm feeling okay. I'm definitely better than I was last Monday at this time.

The bleeding has slowed down to a trickle. The cramps are gone. My "fertility kit", a box of ovulation and pregnancy test strips, has arrived. The void in my womb has been replaced with the fullness of God (Ephesians 3:19). The desperate thirst for peace after this, our second pregnancy loss, is gradually, steadily being… Continue reading TTC Over 40 | Day 4: Renewed purpose
