Our Fertility Update

Whew.. yet another post that I keep putting off. It’s been 13 months since I last shared about our journey to becoming parents. It’s interesting how infrequent I have shared considering that this blog originally started to document our journey. Please don’t think that the lack of sharing about our journey over the years is due to a diminished desire to become parents, because I can assure you that is not the case.

Last month (April) hit the four year mark since we started trying and I just didn’t have the energy then to make a ‘it’s been four years and we are still not pregnant post’. But, I decided I put if off for long enough and it was time to hit submit.

This post doesn’t deserve a roll out of the red carpet. No drum roll is needed. There is no exciting announcement and in fact, as much as I cringe when I write these words, absolutely nothing (in the natural) has changed from my post last year. You read that right, nothing!

We are stilllll waiting. Still believing. Still hopeful. The wait has continued. And yes, the longer we have waited the harder it has gotten. But the expectancy has also been built even more. Romans 8:25 in the Message translation says, “But the longer we wait, the larger we become, and the more joyful our expectancy.”  You better believe that joy is increasing in us each day in anticipation of the day we receive our breakthrough.

So the reason I have put this post off for so long is because I really have nothing to share. We are still on the same path which includes not tracking, charting, temping, timing, but just believe for a miracle. There aren’t any doctors appointments. There aren’t any medical updates. We are still in a season of finding balance with our diet, vitamins, oils, etc. The only thing that has stayed consistent is our hope, trust, and faith in the Lord. 

So there you have it, my update that really isn’t an update. Thanks again to all who have followed along on our journey. In other news, I will be sharing some exciting updates over the next few months (no it has nothing to do with a baby), so I hope you will at least stick around for that.

“Let us not grow weary in well doing, for in due time we will reap a harvest, if we do not give up.” Galatians 6:9

    You have kept consistent the one thing you need to keep consistent, your faith and trust in His plan. I love this little sign you guys are holding, in due time, He will bless you, when the time is right, He will answer. And your faith and steadfastness through this journey is inspiring!

    I prayed for you and Colby last night. Believing with you and for God’s will to be done through it all. I struggle with understanding why he has not blessed you with a baby yet, and I know you struggle with that too, obviously. I do know that your story and faith is a blessing to so many. Love that picture of you guys!

    Even though our journeys are pretty different, I totally understand where you’re coming from! We hit the 5 year mark soon & it really feels like we have gotten nowhere even in all the treatments we’ve done. You’re so strong!

    I really admire your faith and trust in the Lord. My husband and I have tried for 9 years now to get pregnant. I wholeheartedly believe it will happen IF that’s in God’s plan for us. Our daughter was born 5 years ago and entrusted to us through the gift of adoption. We have an open relationship with her birthmother and it has been an amazing blessing that we never could have imagined. I believe that all Christians are mandated to care for Orphans. Have you prayed about adoption? Don’t miss out on what could be your biggest blessing while waiting for something that could possibly not be in God’s plan for your family.

    This post resonates with me like you wouldn’t believe. I stopped using fertility apps to chart, I haven’t seen the doc in nearly a year and I have changed my diet to plant based along with taking supplements and teas to balance my hormones and increase fertility. I’m already noticing a difference in my hormone imbalance each cycle.

    My hope and faith lies with the Lord and each month my hubby and I look forward to receiving a BFP. It’s been nearly 3yrs of trying and I no longer stress or worry about my fertility struggles. I have complete joy knowing that God has already worked it out. Thank you for sharing your post. I’ll continue to pray that your good news will be soon.

    Sending so much love to you both. Our journey was only two years, but it felt long and lonely and then we got our miracle boy – and since then our two girls. He is drawing you closer in this time of waiting, know that your joyful anticipation is inspiring and certainly infectious. I wait and long with you and for you to be parents, and look forward to seeing the rest of the story of your family unfold

    Dear friend! Tears came to my eyes as I looked at the sweet picture of the two of you…still waiting, still expecting your miracle. I am SO proud of you both for maintaining your faith and persevering through the discouragement. Surely hope deferred makes the heart sick, but when your miracle comes through for you, it will be such a tree of life!!! Such a sweet life that God will place in your lives and home! I am still praying for you, too, and still believing God for your miracle. It is going to be amazing and bless and inspire the faith of so many. Everyone who has been following your story will be amazed at the power of Almighty God, and HE will get the glory. Standing firm with you in faith!

    I read this to my husband and told him this was my blog post written by Caroline. He had no clue who I was talking about and neither did I. Your post came up on my Pinterest page so I decided to read and felt like I had written it myself. This was encouraging, even as we wait. Romans 12:12 is my life verse. It’s so hard to be patient in affliction, joyful as we hope and faithful in prayer, but it’s something we actively work on. Thank you for sharing even if “nothing has changed.” I know each month brings awareness to how much we trust and wait patiently for God’s timing.

    Sometimes in the waiting God has lots of blessings for us, lessons we need to learn or strength for coming challenges. I’m glad you’re taking the time to listen to your bodies and God. If and when you decide it’s time to take medical steps or adopt, you’ll know it is what God put in front of you.

    Waiting is hard, being patient is hard. But with patience and waiting you grow either 2 ways closer to God or further away. I’m glad to hear you are still growing closer to Him! ?

    Hang in there. That sucks that you have nothing to report (and you really want to have something!) It sounds like you are keeping yourself in good spirits and hopefully time will make it clear why you were meant to go through this journey.

    I admire you so much for your openness! It took 6 years to conceive my daughter. She is now almost 5. When she was 2 I actually got pregnant accidentally but then lost the baby some months later. After healing from that and then moving and not having insurance for a long time, we just started trying again last year. I’ve stopped counting the months we’ve bee trying because it’s too discouraging for me right now. Hoping and praying for little babies for you and me soon!
