    I just found my "couples guide to fertility" book in the bookshelf and started browsing through it. I found an old NFP chart from the first month DH and I started trying after our youngest was born. It was dated...July of '09??!?! So 4 years ago...sheesh, that's way too long...most of my married girlfriends have had at least 2 babies since then. I've been feeling alright this week, I just don't want this to ruin my day.
    Stupid book....
    Myself (Katie, 29) and DH(31) Praying and trying for a 4th child for 3.5 years. 1 missed m/c @ 17 weeks, D/C 3 weeks later on 5/11/12.
    As Aragorn says, there's always hope.

    Hey Katie (((hugs))) Hun..I know when you tally up the months (or when you have a blatant receipt of proof) it becomes incredible how long we've actually been at it...my tally is a little over 3 yrs now...I'm not exactly sure which month we officially started TTC but I remember a GF of mine finding out she was expecting in Sept. '09 and before she had the baby (May '10) we were trying...when you're going month to month all we tend to see is the next cycle and we lose track of time..while we know what day. week and month it is it's like a wake up call when we do realize "have I been at this for this long?!!"
    Chin up girl, we're all here with you...
    Let life be a journey of love
