My hubby and I aren't in a really good place right now and we've decided to take a break from TTC. The last 9 months we've dealt with moving to a new city, family issues, new jobs, new schools, some non-ttc health issues, and DD learning/developmental issues in addition to all the infertility stuff. We're exhausted and it's affecting our marriage and LIFE.

Ladies, you've all been so fantastic. So supportive and postive. I've been able to share my thoughts, fears, excitment and hope with you all and hope to do again sometime really soon.

I will keep praying for everyone to get their BFP or adoption successes very soon. I know it's an amazing journey and am still hopefull. Just need a little break to focus on myself and my family.

Talk to you all soon

It sounds like you are in a very good place right now, and you are right to step back and take a break if it's needed. Thank you for sharing your journey with us, and if you feel up to it, please pop back in and update us on how things are going for you!

I wish you nothing but the best, and who knows. Maybe once you get everything sorted out in your life... a BFP will just fall right into place.

Yet another wonderful siggy by HeatherW.... thank you so much!!!

Everyone needs a break from time to time to focus on something other than TTC.
I hope it's just what you need. Big hugs!
