How did you know when it was time to stop actively TTC? (Meaning meds, appointments, super careful charting, etc?)
I've started to write this many times, but usually it is when I'm reeling from another failed cycle and I know most of it is hormones. But, I could use some guidance or feedback. I don't want to say advice because I know that this is an intensely personal decision that no one can really advise us about.
I'm also not saying we are there yet, but I won't lie and say I'm not weary. I truly do not know how those of you who have been doing this for years and years and years do it. You are my heroes. We have definitely decided I will see Dr. D. in late August and consider her recommendations. We have been careful to not say we will "never do" or will "definitely do" this or that beyond our commitment to honor and respect God as author of Life. We are trying hard to listen to the the Still Small Voice in all of this.
As much as I do not want to look back and realize I missed this life while striving for the another, I also do not want to look back with regret. Sometimes it feels like the two lanes of this road are right alongside one another and going in the exact same direction and sometimes it feels like there is an enormouse wood between them and the only reason I know there is another path is because I've seen it before.
So, if you will allow me to ask the very personal question of how did you know it was time? What is your personal story? How did you decide when to stop actively TTC?
I understand this is intensely personal, and I will be extremely grateful for anything you wish to share - please use the anonymous commenting option if you prefer or if you'd prefer a private email (RebeccaWVU02@ gmail dot com), I will treasure your experience.
