  • Ok...I've 6 kids. 3 the result of nfp...lovely surprises!!! I've irregular cycles and tried to follow nfp methods closely. I'm also an RN so you'd think I could get it right. Oh we'll!!! Irregular cy les make it challenging!!! Last 2 pregnancies very high risk for heart didn't tolerate it well. Using barrier method now only...nothing that could ever act as an abortifacients in anyway. My hubby is petrified that I wouldn't survive another pregnancy. Our priest, who is conservative actually, said ok recognizing other clergy may not agree. I still feel guilt unit now also have a very ill child. My children are all still young. Say a prayer for us... Don't really know if this is ok......

  • Saying a prayer for you........let's just say I've been where you are. And I've seen women who have been in our circumstances who continue to have child after child, to the great detriment of their families. Sometimes, there really are no easy answers.

  • will not have another day, minute by minute will not go back, so be sure to cherish every minute. There is a pursuit, obviously disappointed, but would not go back. There is an effort, obviously fail, but do not want to stop. There is a love, obviously wrong, but would not let go; there is a beautiful, obviously fantasy, but do not want to wake upLife is sometimes not with right and wrong measured; life is not a coin that is not being anti-; life is not go, either black or white. Life, so many things in life, this is a lot of love, there is no reason, and without reason, love is love, love is love, there is no result, and without result, willingly, no regrets. Life is not really perfect, not only is the most perfect real beauty; life is not always successful, is the real success only stood up in frustration, only the flash of life is both eternal life. Do not pessimistic that he is very unfortunate, even more attitude towards life, happiness is their own thing, as long as like, you can always replace their remote controls, to adjust the window to the soul happy channel. Learn to be happy, even sad, but also smiling face. Institute of loneliness, not who will treat you as guarding treasure. Learn to be independent, can no longer blindly trouble others, their own thing their own. Institute of unsympathetic, the roll to roll, stay on the left. Learn to grow up, you can not be so capricious. Learn to forget, can not live in the past time. The mood is an emotional state, it has a good mood, it has self-confidence, and then have a young and healthy. To have a future life of longing, full of expectations, so we have a good mood, because the life is luck and happiness. Give yourself a good mood, let the world smile at you; to others a good mood, make us smile for life, good mood is the wealth of life, let us always accompanied by a good mood. People on such a life, fun is the day, is not happy day, so you must make yourself happy. People on such a life, not something wrong again, another broken heart is difficult to heal, so you will not regret it. People on such a life, after today unfortunate than you actually are still many people; not optimistic that he is very great, in fact, you just drop in the ocean. Learn to adapt, make your environment becomes bright; learn to adjust, so that you no longer feel sad; learn to be tolerant and let your life without trouble; learn dedication, make your life full of sunshine. In fact, the skies are blue, clouds the total to be scattered; in fact, the sea is not wide, the other side even to this shore; in fact, tears are sweet, when your heart to do so. With emotion to see the world is a tragedy, a comedy is a rational look. Sometimes not understand, just do not want to understand, and sometimes do not know or just do not want to say it. Sometimes he does see, but understand not do anything, so he remained silent. Some words, for keeping everything just some pain, only for silent forget some memories, only suitable for occasional out aftertaste. All the days will come, all the days, and will be the last, as if everything happened, and as if everything did not happen.Has been called back for a century,
