Something you get good at, or at least have to face when trying to get pregnant, is waiting. Waiting to ovulate, waiting for your period to arrive, waiting to get referred to a specialist, waiting for appointments, waiting for results of tests, waiting for surgery, waiting to recovery, waiting for follicles to grow and ultimately waiting for the day when you finally get your BFP. It's hard to be patient, but one thing I've learned and think I've done well at, is to continue to live my life in the waiting. We've been at this for 2 years and I don't want to look back and feel like I wasted those years waiting for something that wasn't happening. So we've tried to live life as normally as possible. Although we were hoping to have a child by now, I like to think of it as bonus time alone with my husband. We happen to like hanging out with each other!

Waiting is hard and can get frustrating. I currently have a bunch of cysts I'm waiting to go away. But luckily I've gotten good at this. I think I'm a pretty patient person. Hopefully that transfers over to parenthood someday!


  1. My goodness, all I can say about your post is 'BINGO', you got that right. I've been having a life of waiting for two years and its been so frustrating. Like you I was waiting for a cyst to go away...and that was just the last straw. I decided to try to stop my brain from being in waiting mode existence. Its hard, but I wish us both the best of luck. Life isn't waiting for us, so we need to get busy and live it, right?

  2. hey,
    was just checking it to see how things are going, since we haven't chatted about this in a while. looking forward to hanging out this weekend and catching up.
    love ya,
