Haven't been here in a LONG time
I haven't been in the TTC forum for a long time. We began trying in June of '06, and I joined here in '08. After praying, trying, waiting, and hoping for so long, I had to step away from things that were causing me too much stress. I was distraught. I questioned everything about my body and my soul. I was consumed by the fear that I would never have children. God pulled me out of the power of this darkness. Over time, He showed me that He loves me more than I can ever imagine, and that I am important to Him and others whether or not He gives me children.
Things began to change in how I looked at having children and how I responded to the dreaded questions. I began enjoying my life as it is, though still hoping for it to change. My relationship with my dh has been so wonderful over the last few years as I've slowly worked past my fears.
Now, after 6 1/2 years of waiting for God to bless us, I am so excited to share that we have had our very first ever POSITIVE! :hooray: :bellyrubs: :hooray:
Thank you to everyone who encourages others here to keep going.
