I am sorry it's been so long since I've posted on the blog.  I am going to try to make this a picture/family blog instead of my personal little outlet.  But, before I do that, I want to get something off my chest.

Todd and I thought I could potentially be pregnant...but as of last night, I'm not.  I cant tell you how much my heart broke.  I know it was only one time that we tried just a week ago, but my heart still broke.  I know that if we are meant to have children, God will give them to us, but I never expected to feel so horrible about getting my period.

So, there is a little sadness here in the Crispin household this morning.  I didnt realize how much Todd would be effected as well.

We talked about it last night, and I think we are going to try to start building a family.  I dont know how I'm going to go through each month wishing my period doesnt come, and when it doesnt, I'm not sure how I'm going to keep it a secret until it's "safe," but I am excited to see what God has in store for us.

  1. Being tense and anxious can have a negative effect on the process of getting pregnant. Look to the world around you and be happy. Try to forget about "trying." I had three periods after getting pregnant. I thought all the women who said they had a period after they got pregnant were just nuts. Nope, it happens. This was my third child and fourth pregnancy, so I knew what pregnant felt like. That baby still came earlier than the doctor predicted. So, I was right about being pregnant!

    However, you probably are not pg.

    After I had my first child in April, I thought I was pregnant the next spring. My ob/gyn said that the majority of the women in his practice who were of child-bearing age thought they were pregnant in the spring because of a late period. He said it happened every spring. So, cheer up. Your body did not fail you.

    Quit worrying about whether your period comes or not! Make love not babies. (babies will come) Otherwise, you will both be miserable and feel like failures.
