For my marriage, for Your will for us to have a baby, (then whatever else I think of that needs prayers at the moment).
Except that even now that I'm pregnant, I STILL catch myself saying the exact same thing--for Your will for us to have a baby. And then I'm like, I DO have a baby! I don't know if I'm saying it just out of old habit, or if the pregnancy still hasn't sunk in yet, or what. So when I do catch myself saying that, I change it to-"for all subfertile women and for my pregnancy". I'm hoping that the change of prayer will help.
I posted our pregnancy news on Monday on Facebook. The next morning, my friend J, said this:
I spoke with her for an hour on the phone today, and it turns out that she and her DH had been TTC for over a year, but they didn't tell ANYONE. I was so shocked to hear that! I had a fellow sub-fertile friend, and I didn't even know it! It was great being able to catch up and talk about our struggles of conceiving and how our pregnancies are progressing. I don't think it's a coincidence that we're pregnant at the same time :)
P.S. I think I'm procrastinating writing about the next few cycles of TTC. A few of those cycles got a lot more dark and depressing--the lowest point of my entire journey of TTC. But I know that I have to get it written out, no matter how painful reliving it might be. I promise I'll continue with them eventually.
