I’m So Impatient

This past week, I was irritable. I won’t lie. I wrote this on Facebook on Friday and my friend’s mom, Jan, said thanks for your honesty. I’m glad someone is encouraged by the fact that I have been snapping at people! Haha!

My impatience last week was due to hormones – you know, girl stuff. Today I’m feeling impatient for another reason.

I want to be pregnant again! I want another baby!

So many of my friends are pregnant, including Kelly who was my pregnancy pal. Her daughter Amaya was born 3 weeks before Jack. And Kelsey who had Drew a few months after Jack was born. And Jess, who is working on number 3!! Don’t get me wrong, I’m really excited for everyone. I’m just wondering when it’s my time again!

We are waiting awhile longer because Tim’s finishing up school and we need to get finances straightened out. This is kind of where we were when we got pregnant with Jack. Except, Jack was born hours after I finished my last homework assignment for seminary. Eek! I’m not going to do that again!!

So, if you think of it, all of you beautiful pregnant women, pray that I can be patient. Pray that when we do try again that I get pregnant quickly. And pray that in the meantime we make wise decisions that will lead us to the best future possible for our little family.

Thanks friends.

  1. That’s how I felt the first time around; I wanted a baby RIGHT THAT SECOND!!! I have yet to hit that point again, but I have a feeling that when the feeling hits, it will hit hard!!

    With Lydia, the timing wasn’t perfect, but she was. I’m sure it will feel that way the second way around. Even though circumstances are pushing you out of your desired timing, the baby you will eventually have will be exactly the one meant for you!


  2. I can’t say that I’m not feeling the push as well. So many people around me with kids Olive’s age or older are pregnant again. Kelly now as well. On the one hand, life is SO full with her, I’m not sure how in the heck I would do two, but on the other, it’d be nice to be pregnant again when so many others are and I’m not too old. I have to wait as well, much longer though I think. Although Steve should be done with his degree this year, he’s trying for others and we’re still not sure what the heck is going to happen, so having another kid really just doesn’t make sense right now. So, anyway, I wanted you to know I sympathize. For now, aside from praying, my advice is to keep enjoying the one-on-one time you are getting with Jack right now 😉


    • Thanks Samantha! I know I’m not alone. I’m sorry you’re feeling the same way. I hope you guys are adjusting well to life in California. It looks beautiful!

      You know, it’s funny because up until this fall I was still very scared of a second baby. That has definitely changed.


      • Yeah, I remember you saying that not long ago, so I was surprised to read this post ;-). We are doing OK. Steve’s parents were in this weekend and it was great to have familiar faces & company – first time since we got here. We won’t have that again until we go back to my parents in Ohio in December. It gets lonely at times (people don’t seem as friendly or interested in making friends here, at least from what I’ve seen so far). We’ll see though.We will try the weekly playschool next quarter, so that will help too. It’s warmer here, so that’s nice. Olive and I try to go for walks most days – I really like that here. It’s been good for her and I to get to know each other too :-). I hope to get out and get more photos as we get time. Steve’s pretty engrossed though, so it’s tough. Anyway, thank you for asking. Miss you my friend!
