To Have A Child Or Not? When Your Doctor Forces You To Decide

“Strength and dignity are her clothing, and she smiles at the future” (Proverbs 31:25)

We can become so caught up in comparison, feeling rushed to make decisions + feeling like we are so far behind in life. If I am being honest, that is how these last two days have felt for me. My doctor had made it clear, I needed to decide, like yesterday, if I want kids. My heart sank when he said those words. I took a second to think about all of my friends throughout the years, who already have at least one child. Or the ones who are at least trying. How could I be so far behind in life?
