My husband and I were looking at baby clothes today, actually he showed me something that he liked ... and then there it was, the sad look on his face. He didn't want me to see it, but I did and it made me feel so sad. I cried a lot the last couple of days ... I don't know why I'm feeling so blue lately. I keep singing the song 'Dear Mr. God', it says Dear Mr. God sometimes I wish you lived next door and over coffee you could tell me what you started all this for.' That's exactly how I feel right now. I asked my husband today if he thinks God knows that I'm ready to have a baby.
Maybe it's the weather, it's been raining here in Germany for weeks now. Or is it because we're really close to our victory.
I can't wait till I have my book "God's Plan for Pregnancy" in the mail, I'm sure it will help me a lot.

I believe in Angels and they keep sending me signs, one of their favorite sign for me are numbers like 111 or 222 etc. on liscence plates. Sometimes I see all of them (111, 222, 333, 444, 555, 666, 777, 888 and 999) on one day. This is their way of letting me know that I'm not alone and that they're always on my side. Every time I'm really sad I keep seeing the number 555, since the number 5 is very important in the Bible to me it is like God saying "Hi" to me. When I left the hospital after my husband was being picked up for surgery I was worried, then I saw 555 and I immediately felt peace and I knew that everything would be alright (and it was).

I just know that I know that I know that I'm going to be a mom, I just wish it would happen NOW.

Oh trust me, I KNOW!!! I feel your pain! But God's timing is always best & we have to keep reminding ourselves of that. I know for me He is teaching me how to REALLY lean on Him & trust Him. I am learning how to depend on Him every day. I have to go through this season or I'll never REALLY know how to do these things, kwim. But I know... most of the time (99% of the time) I'm really okay but every now & then something out of the blue will hit me & I'll remember that I don't have a baby & I really should. I should have a 7 month old had I not had a m/c. But I know that God's plan is prosper us & not to harm us & that God works ALL THINGS together for our good.

For the first 13 years of our marriage, we suffered infertility. My hubby would often try to help "ease" my pain by saying things like "if we never have children, I'll still be happy because of have you", etc. But there were often times that I'd see the way he smiled at kids, or that sadness in his eyes. And it just hurt so bad. It was like a knife that dug deeper into the heart. I know it was totally God's strength that helped us through all of those years...and then even more so when we were able to conceive, but then lost five babies to m/c.

The pain may seem so unbearable at times....but God IS faithful! He gave you that desire for children and He gives good gifts to those He loves. Children are a gift....and God LOVES you! Hold tight to His promises. ((((hugs)))))

Thank you Kristen. I can't say enough how much it means to me. It feels so good to have praying friends. I was looking for a place like this for a long time.
God always has a plan. I googled Psalm 113:9 and found a blog called Psalm 113:9, reading the blog gave me a lot of hope - so I posted a comment to thank the author of the blog. Amanda also reads the blog and saw my comment, she then left a comment on my blog and told me about her blog. Since then I'm reading her blog, and when a friend of mine told me that I think and talk to much about my desire to have a baby I asked Amanda what I'm doing wrong. That was when she told me about this forum here, and I'm really glad she did.
