jillybeans: I'm confused. Not trying but in a TTC thread? Makes no sense to me!
I think I've been almost angry about this whole TTC thing. I think I was very naive going into it thinking that I'd be the one person with endo who got pregnant right away. I can not even begin to imagine what it feels like for those who have been trying a year or more. My heart goes out to them. (And then I feel bad about venting.
I'm trying to change the way I've been thinking. Maybe TTC is taking longer for a reason. If/when we conceive, I know that I will never, ever take the whole TTC process or my child for granted. Maybe if we had conceived right away, I wouldn't have thought that. Or maybe it'll be put in our hearts to go a different direction.

DH's cousin sat down and talked with me over the holidays. I feel like she's the one person who can really understand, as she struggled with infertility. She said, "Nicole, you have got to let go of your timelines." I know I have got to give up control. God is in control, not me. From now on, we will still TTC, but we are doing it on His timeline, not ours. We're simply praying for direction and I'm confident it will be shown.
