A lady at work told me recently that I'm not ready to have kids yet (I believe there are other issues there, but mostly I think she said it because of my age).
I've heard other married couples with kids say to wait because of the stress that is added after having kids.
I just know that my husband and I have had a solid relationship. We were both raised in similar family situations. We communicate with each other. We're getting our finances in order. I know we're not perfect, but who is?
We've talked about kids for forever. We may or may not have names picked out already (I told you I'm a planner). We know how many we want (I'd probably still take more, but we'll see when we get there). The thing is, I was only on the pill for 5 months, and I've been off the pill for 7 months now. I just don't understand why I'm not pregnant yet.
I've done SO much reading online about pregnancy, the pill, how the pill effects getting pregnant, etc. Honestly, I never really wanted to take the pill, but I did thinking that we were going to wait a year or two before even talking about kids. Then we got married. A month later, I accidentally missed my birth control for a couple days. We started talking about it. Two months later I stopped taking the pill. Now, I just think I should be pregnant already.(The impatient
I suppose (read as "I know") I just need to trust God that the timing will be His timing.
Why is waiting so hard? Is there anything else that I could be doing, or should I just trust the bigger (and unknown to me) plan?
I don't really have any other choice but to wait right now.
Maybe that's a good thing.
Maybe I should learn something.
Notice: What made me decide to write this post was simply the fact that I like reading blogs that are open and honest about real things because I find that I relate to those people. I am hoping to be the same in my blog. Also, I don't want this post to seem depressing because I am really happy with my life and I feel incredibly blessed to be in this season of life! I just want to share the thoughts that I have in the hopes of sharing with a community of friends with similar thoughts or ideas or absolutely opposite ones! :) Capeesh?
