Weekends are hard for us since we’ve been in our baby-making season. Every weekend for the past 9-10 months, the hubster and I have stayed on the go with family outings, hiking, church, working out and whatever other fun stuff we can squeeze into those fleeting 48 hours between Friday and Monday. There’s barely any… Continue reading TTC Over 40 | Day 14: “Just relax and it will happen” – Part I
We have a setback. It's minor and may not impact our chances for conception this month but it is a challenge, nonetheless. Our only choice is to trust God's timing and believe God will provide what we need. The reality is that if not this month, we will conceive in a future month. God put… Continue reading TTC Over 40 | Day 10: Believing God
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.

Ugh. I want to "blame" the hubster for my neurosis. After all, it was him who expressed cautious… Continue reading TTC Over 40 | Day 29 – 14 DPO: Taking all the tests!
Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, The fruit of the womb is a reward.Psalms 127:3
I subscribe to several YouTube TTC channels and, every month, eagerly awaiting the "two week wait"(TWW) videos from the ladies who have yet to conceive. I open up my YouTube app at night, right before prayer, and proceed to live vicariously through "finding out I'm pregnant" and "0-4 weeks pregnancy update" videos that pop up… Continue reading TTC Over 40 | Day 26 – 11 DPO: Yay! Big Fat Positive!
It would be so easy, so ideal, so absolutely incorrect to state that I am in perfect peace at all times. It would be so easy to assert that 100% of the time I'm resting in God's grace, His love and His divine timing. Oh, how beautiful and amazing it would be to be able… Continue reading The 5 Stages of Grief After A Negative Pregnancy Test Result
