I would like to take a couple moments to encourage woman on here that are waiting for God's hand to move in their lives.

It is not that God is waiting to move, but that we are waiting to receive what God has in store.
Consider yourselves honoured to be chosen to be here today, to have breath, to have life. And when he is ready, he will give you everything you could ever imagine and/or hope for. Don't underestimate Gods value for your desires to come true. After all didn't he plant those desires within you? Take trust, take hold of God's words and promises and speak out love on those that you had previously held back congratulating. Have a thankful heart, as you too will be walking around carrying a miracle. That will be YOU.

You all are a walking testimony.

God has not finished your story.

Let your lives be a letter to him.

Now I am about 7 dpo and feeling pressure down there. Just wondering for all you prego ladies how soon after o did your test become bfp? I took my first round of clomid this month and I have seen a few stories that it actually worked the first time, but also many that didnt, so I am still keeping my fingers crossed!

Baby Willow I got my bfp at 9 DPO but I hear it can take as long as 15 or 16 DPO (heard a few even longer than that). I'm praying for you.

Willow I got mine at 14dpo, but I only tested cause I was getting a tattoo. So it may have been before that but I wouldn't know.

At 9 dpo I started feeling "different" with lots of fullness and twinges. I got a bfp at 10 dpo.

Hello ladies,

I'm new to this site and stumbled on this thread. I'm thankful this thread exists .

Some of you have been TTC for a while (there are just under 450 pages to go through so it's taking me a while to work out who is who) and I wanted to ask those who've been trying for a long time - how do you wait in such a way that honors God? Wait in such a way without giving up hope? Wait whilst continuing to rejoice in the Lord? Have you chosen to keep busy on other things? Is it an indication of lack of faith to work on other projects? To get your focus off ttc so it does not become an idol? I'm sorry if this has been asked already so please share links to past discussions if any are available. I'm feeling down after another BFN but I'm more concerned with how other aspects of my life have sort of ground to a halt. I also find I'm becoming less patient with my DH which is not doing home life much good. I want to rise above this but it's proving impossible. So I'm here seeking biblical counsel like a psalm-1-ttcer ....

Thank you for reading ...

In His Grip,
Faith

Good morning and Welcome, my name is Sarah and I'm very glad you have joined us and I definitely don't believe you stumbled upon this thread by chance

I have been on this ttc journey for a little over 5 years now. The main thing that keeps me going is the desire in my heart for a child. I have prayed countless times for the Lord to take it away if it wasn't His will for my life. The desire hasn't gone away and so I continue to believe with all my heart that God knows what's best for my life and if that means waiting, waiting and waiting some more...than I'll do it. I know His timing is perfect and I would rather have a baby in His time than my own.

Being at the place I am now looking back, I can actually understand why I haven't become pregnant yet. My relationship with the Lord has become so strong during this time and I wouldn't trade that for anything. I'm also able to minister to women like yourself, being in the same position. I have a beautiful stepdaughter (who I call my own) that needed a mother since her birth mom isn't around. I have been able to give her my undivided attention which she so desperately needs.

Some women may never fully understand this mountain in there life, but trust in God and lay all your cares on Him, for He cares for you.

He has nothing but good in store for the ones who love Him. Believe me, I have my ups and downs, but God has been doing a real work in me to be content at where I'm at in my journey, to trust Him and take it one day at a time.

Having a hobby or activity during this waiting time is great! It definitely helps to do something you love so that you can remain peaceful and less stressed.

I hope this has helped in some way.

Blessings to you sis

Hope

What exactly is hope? Is it positive thinking? Is it the same as faith? From a Biblical standpoint, hope is something certain, as of yet unrealized. It is something you look forward to with certainty, yet you have not yet attained. It is much like a reservation in a restaurant. You get dressed for dinner, drive to the restaurant, walk in the door and tell the host or hostess your name, fully expecting that a table will be ready for you at the appointed time. You expect that the dinner you request will be prepared and served and your hunger will be satisfied. You have no doubt or reason to believe that this chain of events will not be carried out as planned. Such is hope!
Has infertility taken your hope away? No test is too difficult, no financial setback too great if you have the hope of conceiving, but if you feel hopeless in your quest for a baby, despair can set in and it is easy to throw your hands up and give in.
Do you realize God is your partner in hope? The struggle you face with infertility may cause you to question whether God is on your side or if He has forgotten you. Does He care if I conceive? Does He care if I am successful in other areas of my life? If you want to know about God and how He feels about you, turn to His Word! Dive in to the pages of the book He wrote about Himself! See what He has to say about Himself and about you. See what He has to say about hope.
• For whatever was written in earlier times was written for our instruction, so that through perseverance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope. Romans 15:4
Remember that Scripture is a source of great encouragement for you. God has given you His word to encourage you and give you hope! Read His word and find encouragement to help you with your battle with infertility!
• 'For I know the plans that I have for you,' declares the LORD, 'plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope. Jeremiah 29:11
God’s plans for you are full of hope. Full of certainty.
• Why are you in despair, O my soul? And why have you become disturbed within me? Hope in God, for I shall again praise Him for the help of His presence. Psalm 42:5
You can place your hope in God--the certainty of God. He is unwavering. Even if your circumstances change every time you have an appointment with your doctor--a new diagnosis, a different medication, more questions. Hope in God--place your confidence in the certainty of who He is, and find help in the very presence of God.
• I wait for the LORD, my soul does wait, And in His word do I hope. Psalm 130:5

Waiting is such a hard part of the infertility struggle. It seems as if your entire adult life has been nothing but waiting for a baby! As you wait, you can put your hope in the Lord and in His infallible word. Hope--something certain, yet unrealized. Wait for God’s perfect plan to be brought about in His perfect timing, whatever His perfect plan for your life is. Place your hope in His perfect plan for you as you wait for the Lord.
• In hope against hope he (Abraham) believed, so that he might become a father of many nations according to that which had been spoken, " So shall your descendants be." Romans 4:18
Abraham gave us a beautiful example of hope as he waited for a child! He believed in hope that God would do what He said He would and give him and Sarah a baby in their old age! God came through and
Isaac was born! Abraham believed with certainty that God would give him a child, and God did! (By the way--what an encouraging story for those who need God to perform a healing miracle in their physical bodies!)
• For in hope we have been saved, but hope that is seen is not hope; for who hopes for what he already sees? But if we hope for what we do not see, with perseverance we wait eagerly for it. Romans 8:24-25
...rejoicing in hope, persevering in tribulation, devoted to prayer,... Romans 12:12
Keep persevering in prayer! Keep praying for God’s will for your life and your family! Thank God for the hope He gives you.
• Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you will abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. Romans 15:13
It is our prayer that you will feel the peace of the Holy Spirit when you realize the hope you have from Heaven, that God is for you and not against you, and that God’s plan for your life is amazing!

-Beth Forbus
