God didn't promise days without pain, laughter without sorrow,sun without rain, but He did promise strength for the day, comfort for the tears, and light for the way.

Another Failed Cycle.

The plan was to have a blood test on Friday if Af hadn't started by then. Since it would have been a week late for me. So I was getting a little excited Thursday night, and then it came! I was disappointed, I had not had as much stress this month, it is going on a year and a half of this IF journey,( I know not nearly as long as some of you, that read my blog that are ttc).
My husband came out of the computer room and looked at me and saw the look on my face and tears running down my face and said I am so sorry honey, I thought that this was it, and he came over to me gave me a hug and just held me and cried with me. He told me that he was disappointed as well cause, he is tired of seeing me hurting each month that we are not pregnant. I have such a sweet and caring husband that is there for me when I need him the most.
This prayer gives me strength to endure another day and cycle with God by my side.


Dear God,
I got my period today.
This marks another cycle of failure.
We have to wait another whole month to try and make a baby.
To us, thirty days seems like a eternity. Please help us to endure the days ahead.
Steer us away from living in the future and keep us focused on today.
We hand over our anxiety and thoughts of hopelessness in exchange for the gift
of patience and strength.
Amen

Jen, I'm so very sorry! I do understand how you feel as it took us about a year and a half with our first child. You are lucky to have a sweet, caring husband to travel this road with side by side. It would've been so much harder for me if it wasn't for my dear husband.

I'll continue to keep you both in my prayers.

Thank you for visiting my blog! Love your "Wordless Wednesday" pictures. Beautiful. Are they places you have visited or places you would like to visit?

Sorry that this last cycle showed no success. Has your RE given you a plan of action yet?
