Thanks ๐Ÿ™‚ and I totally agree…I just spent the last month wishing the time away and realized after the milestone I had been waiting for passed that I immediately started wishing away the next 7 months that I seriously needed a reminder like this to enjoy every moment that I’m given and not just look towards what the next month/year/decade will bring (not TTC, but still).

@skipper2010: Lovely post and very very true. I spent the say in the kitchen baking bread and am just about to make me and DH a lovely dinner and crack a bottle of champagne (we have tons left over from the wedding). Life is indeed great! 

Enjoy your dinner!

@skipper2010:  Very true and a great post to read.

All around me people are starting to get BFPs and while I am so happy for them (esp family) I can’t help but feel the tiniest bit jealous.

DH and I had a good talk last night and he said baby’s are born every single day but all that matters is me and him.  Our little family will happen when its meant to be ๐Ÿ™‚

DH’s younger sis is due Jan and it was a huge surprise to the whole fam but now I am looking at it positively – when we do have children they will already have a cousin to play with ๐Ÿ™‚

I recently had a chat with a friend who was TTC and had a lot of trouble and just recently decided to put the whole thing “on hold.”  Your post reminds me of her wisdom, which was:

“If it’s not in the cards, then it’s not in the cards, and I will have to face that. It will be painful, but I realized that TTC made me focus so hard on this one thing and making me crazy to the point that my entire world was controlled by pee sticks. I realized the other day when I was on the floor bawling, that even if it doesn’t work out, I still have a beautiful marriage, amazing friends, a fulfilling career, and plenty of my own hobbies and interests–and it was the fertility treatments that had a way of making me forget all those things. In the end, my life can be just as fulfilling without children as it would be with them. It will just be fulfilling in different ways.”

I love this post–thank you for writing it!  I’ve been trying to live more like this lately and it is much nicer.  Yesterday I actually had a lazy day and enjoyed several hours to myself of watching whatever I wanted on Netflix.  I said to myself “enjoy this because you may not (hopefully will not) always have this luxury!”

Wow. Skipper, thank you for sending this my way.

I feel all of these things. I think I posted about this yesterday, somewhere, but I hate that I am wishing my time away when, really, my life is pretty golden. I need to remind myself of that, and also remind myself that it will NEVER be like this again once we have children. Even when we’re empty nesters decades from now, it will never be JUST US. I love being just us.

And you’re right, worrying doesn’t change anything. I know this. I don’t let myself obsess over other things I can’t control in my life so why can’t I relinquish “control” of TTC? I can. I just have to do it.

Thanks again.

Very awesome post!  After 15 months of TTC with no BFP in sight, I need these kind of reminders!  Thank you. ๐Ÿ™‚
