Perfect timing.

Tee: ASOS {similar here and here}, Denim: Rocking Republic {similar here and here}, 
Ankle Boots: Vince Camuto {similar here}




Well....judging by the tee you can see that we've had a lot going on the past few months:)
This bitty bump didn't happen overnight. It actually took lots of planning,
and trying.....a year to be exact. 

I've never been at a point in my life where I 
didn't have control of the next step. College-yes. Job- yes. Marriage-yes.
Baby-yes. But month after month passes....and still no baby. Negative test after negative test.
And you begin to wonder if you're broken {and boy, is that a crummy feeling}.
I never realized before how precious fertility is. It really is such a gift.

So we continued to pray......and wait. I'll admit, this was the first time that I really began
to question God. I had a strong desire to be a mom, a desire that I knew was from Him.
So what are we waiting on here, God? And He would always tell me: "My timing is perfect."

So we kept praying...and waiting {did I mention this is not my strong suit?}. 
And finally, literally on month number 12...on an early summer morning....that little test came back positive. My mom always told me that when I became pregnant, I would look back over the past few months and see how everything worked together to be just as it should. And she's right {hate when that happens}, it does. 

Maybe God wanted me to grow up a little bit, maybe He was waiting for just the right little egg, 
or maybe He wanted me to realize it's not about me...it's about Him. 
All I know, is that His timing really is perfect.

Congratulations :) I always think it's one of life's great ironies that during our twenties, we spend an an incredible amount of care and effort not getting pregnant, but once married we have to "try" to get pregnant! Happy for you and your hubby :)
