...better known as the Two Week Wait, has not been as bad as I have experienced in the past. I am not quite sure if it is because I have been extremely busy at work with school starting or because I have this wonderful peace about this cycle. Maybe it is a little of BOTH!
Our 2WW will soon be coming to an end and I am determined to wait until the date that our doctor gave us to perform the test. I'm just a rule follower...I can't help it! And I'm determined to try something different this time because every other time, the DH talked me into testing sooner. But NOT this time :)
The peace I feel about this cycle, I truly believe, has been a result of all the prayer and praise that I have been experiencing these past 2 weeks. This cycle started with a series about Hope at our church and I just can't seem to wait until the next Sunday to hear more about what our pastor has to say on this topic. My secretary and I have been praying every single morning at school before we start our day. I have been surrounding myself with scripture and positive thoughts. Not to mention that MANY of my friends and family have been pouring their love, prayers, and words of encouragement over me. I literally have recieved at least one sentiment from a loved one every single day of this cycle...which have come in the form of a phone call, email, text message, facebook message, or small gift. I have also started believing in this pregnancy with words of affirmation. Here are just a few of the comments I've been making these past few days..."Be nice to the mother of your child!", "I'm experiencing a little cramp...our baby must be growing!", and "I can't (insert chore) because I'm pregnant."
I am so very blessed and I know that God is in control...He knows my hearts desires and He will fulfill the promises He has made.
Please continue to pray that our 2WW will end with the most amazing results ever!
