Today I found out from my good friend, Facebook, that two of my "friends" announced that they were pregnant today. I have thought about babies a lot recently and this certainly didn't help. Nathan and I have decided that it is for everyone's best interest to wait until I'm finished with school to start to try and have children. But that certainly doesn't mean I don't want a baby RIGHT NOW! But then it starts me on my other train of thought. Infertility and Miscarriages. I don't know what my insides are like. I've never actually met them. And they haven't told me if they are going to be nice to me or not. That makes me nervous. Sometimes I read a blog of a friend of a friend of mines (yes...I don't actually know her...) and her struggle with infertility. And I just cry and cry. I don't even know her, for crying out loud, but I can see her pain. And I don't want that. I hope that when it comes time that I won't have to ever deal with that pain. Until then I guess I'm just going to play the waiting game.

adoption is a beautiful thing. your babies are out there, so no need to worry how you'll get them!

I had the same thought when we started trying. You will have whatever you are meant to have and I think babies come to you when you need them, even if it is a long, sad, journey before that. It just makes you love them even more. And adoption really is great!

I think of that commercial all the time with the lady screaming "babies everywhere!!!!!!"
everything will work out for you and nathan. But i am excited for you to be a mom in the future!!

I'm in the same boat. I want a baby, but Stephan and I agreed that it would probably be best to hold off until he's done with school. And like you, I also worry about infertility, especially since my mom struggled with it. She had to resort to fertility drugs to finally get pregnant with my brother, though she didn't have to use them for the rest of us.

Thanks to modern medicine, it is possible for infertile couples to conceive. So if you do experience difficulties, you can get help. And if all efforts fail, there is adoption. I am a big fan of adoption.

The most important thing to know, however, is that Heavenly Father has plans for all of his children.

I am glad Nathan has such a sweet wife. You can love on my babies any time you want!
