28 Days

28 days is the cycle.

28 days, I am optimistic
28 days, I am hopeful
28 days, I wait
28 days, I am anxious, yet at the same time try not to think about it
28 days, It's all about timing
28 days, I think positive thoughts
28 days, I pray this is the month
28 days, I will my body to conceive
28 days, I think of ways to tell DH IF I’m late and imagine his reaction
28 days, I imagine of what it feel like to have a life growing inside me

I find myself getting more disappointed with each month’s passing. It is getting so much harder to keep optimistic. The last couple of months have been harder than most. I feel disheartened especially when the 28th day arrives and it arrives. A deep fear of never having a child returns to fill my thoughts.

DH has been wonderful and reassures me that he loves me and it will happen.

I am comforted by love and refueled with hope. I am appeased, and optimism returns...

What a great hubby. The only thing you can do is leave it up to God.

Miss Trixie, I am sending you tons of good thoughts and well wishes. I can only imagine how frustrating that would be, but I am wishing for the best!

I am also keeping you and your hubby in my thoughts. Keep trying! (at least that's the fun part!)... thinking of you lots and wishing happy results in the next next 28 days.

Oh, I'm so sorry. I won't tell you to relax, because I'm sure you're tired of hearing that.

I'll just keep my fingers crossed for you.

In the meantime, let me know if you want to borrow an 18 year old girl. That will make the waiting easier. :-)

I will echo what everyone else has said about having faith, staying positive and enjoying your life with the hubby:-)

And just think of how much fun trying is!

I hear you - I've been in that hell for the last 2.5 years. I wait with the same thoughts as you.
Good luck, and know that I am sending happy thoughts from me to you that one day soon you will be thinking "in 9 months" instead of in 28 day intervals.

Happiness and conceiving oddly enough, is like a butterfly. The moment you stop chasing it it lands on your shoulder. Your Husband sounds awesome! What a cool guy! It will happen. Keep telling yourself that. It will and it shall.
