You know me so well

Tonight was a very typical night in our household. I was watching TV and my hubby was in the guest room on the computer. I started to get really tired and turned off the TV so that I could take a nap, needless to say it was already 8:30 at this point. My husband knew exactly what I was up to and tried to get me to wait and go to sleep with him in a few hours, so smart. I decided not to take his advice and now it is 1:18 and I can't sleep while he is sound asleep in our bed. Oops.

When I finally figured out that I wasn't going to fall back asleep for the night I decided to catch up on my blogs through google reader. I gotta say it is so encouraging to have all of you ladies out there who have such similar stories, lives and who share my faith. I mention every once in a while my blog and people ask what it is, I refer them to my blog that is more to keep family and friends up to date than this one. I love that this is a safe place where I don't have to worry about people getting offended by what I write.
I have married into a family where everything and I mean everything can be turned into an insult or something hurtful. I would never want to offend any of my in-laws. (Hubby is from a big family so there are lots of in-laws.)
I also love that my followers are growing! I love seeing that I have a new one and checking out a new blog.

I know I have been awarded some awards that I have missed. I am so sorry, I got a little overwhelmed while I was out of town. I appreciate them still though!!

One more thing and then I may attempt sleep again...
I am so shocked to find out how many other couples are dealing with infertility. I got married at 22 and didn't think I would ever have any troubles getting pregnant but after 2 and half years of being married with no bc I am getting a little worried that nothing has happened yet. I fear that we are starting our journey with infertility. I truly want to really start trying (taking temp and such) this summer after we hopefully take our kids to Young Life camp but I am starting to worry about waiting. I am having a hard time trusting God's plans for me right now even though I pray that it will happen when God decides the timing is right. Please include this in your prayers if you think about it. Thanks!

I feel your pain. Here I am blogging at 5:12 AM, having been up since 4:00 AM.

I really like this post :)

I hope you don't have to hop on the infertility bandwagon with the rest of us. I do the temp thing if you want to chat. misadventuresofanewlywed@gmail.com

I love the story about your evening nap! I hope you were able to get some sleep. :)

I am praying for you with the infertility thing. Just put it in the Lord's hands, and don't worry about it too much until you know if it's a real issue. :) I'm praying that when the time comes, you'll have NO problems getting pregnant.

you will def. be in my prayers!

LyndsAU said...

That whole "nap at 8:30" thing sounds just like me! Except I can sleep for like 12 hours straight so I usually don't have problems there!!
Try your best not to worry about infertility. God has a plan for you and I know it's hard to trust in that all the time. But it will happen when He wants it to! i am so sorry you are having troubles there. I will say a prayer for you.

Lindsey said...

Praying for you friend!

Nicole M Wood said...

I am right there with you. We have been married 2 years Monday.....

Also what do you do when the inlaw family is like that? Mine are the SAME way. I really really have to be careful with my MIL. She is the best at taking something I say and twisting it...

Jenny.Lee said...

You are amazing! I hope you got some rest!

Suzette said...

I will be adding you to my prayer list! I am so sorry that you are having to deal with the fears of infertility! Hold onto hope and so many miracle stories of how God has blessed so many families that thought they would never be able to conceive!

Prissy Southern Prep said...

I know what you mean about the inlaws thing! And - my prayers are with you and your issues with infertility.

Mrs.Preppy said...

I am sorry to read that you married into a family that takes things the wrong way. I am in the exact same situation ... my husband's family basically said they wanted to have nothing to do with us because did not spend enough time with them. Very mature. And very sad.

And I agree with you - blogging is a great way to talk without having to worry if you are going to get in trouble!

SassyEngineer said...

I hope that the infertility issues are maybe just God giving you more time to prepare. I got married younger, and I'm not ready quite yet to have children, but I have always assumed it would be easy and happen when I wanted it to. I need to remember that God is in control. Anyway, I will say a prayer for you for sure!

Mojito Maven said...

DITTO to Mrs. Preppy. I'm sorry to hear about your in-laws! My MIL and I do not speak unless forced!

And I am without words in regards to your pregnancy issues. I hope that once you start charting, etc that everything will fall into place!

Gwen said...

Definitely tell it like it is. I just did a huge post on my "secrets". And don't worry too much about the baby. God has a plan and it's unfolding exactly as it should. :)

Milltini said...

Definitely including you in my thoughts and prayers my dear! Everything will work out!

VinceandBrittany said...

I will be praying for you, and I truly hope once you start "actually" trying, it will be successful.

I have wanted one thing and one thing only my whole life: to be a mother. I cannot imagine how scary it must be to see that as a challenge.

Blue-Eyed Bride said...

i can relate to the family issues-- but his family is very small and easily offended.

i'm sorry to hear that there may be issues. hopefully once you really start trying and getting technical you will find the answers to your questions and they'll be okay. you'll be in my prayers.

Lulu said...

I'm so sorry to hear that you two are struggling with infertility right now... I'll definitely put you in my prayers. Are you familiar with Kelly's Korner Blog? www.kellyskornerblog.com She struggled with infertility for years, and seems to be an *amazing* spiritual support in that aspect (read all her archives for great Scripture, etc.). We're all here and praying for you!
xoxo,
Lulu

Sarah said...

I will definitely keep you in my thoughts and prayers! I can't imagine how it feels to be dealing with this since we haven't started trying yet, but we have some realy dear friends who went through the same thing and now they have the most precious little boy ever!!! God does have a plan and it will all work out in the end!!

Mrs. Stilettos said...

Hi, so glad I found your blog!

Hang in there...God certainly works in mysterious ways. My parents tried for seven years to get pregnant before she had me. I am so scared that I will have the same problems! We aren't ready to try yet but it still weighs heavily on my mind.

Dear Mrs.,
Thank you for being so honest and open with us! It is a great thing to have a forum where we can chat, be open and ask for help and prayers! The Dr's think I might have endometriosis which I hear can complicate getting prego. M & I have been married a little over 2 years and while we are not trying yet, I do already think about the whole infertility thing. I know that acupuncture has helped so many of my friends plus it is healthy and relaxing! Again, love your openness. Prayers are with you!
