Right now your daddy and I are in Tennessee with Aunt Hope and Uncle Jordan, a much needed getaway! It's so fun to have friends to hang out with and go on vacation with. But I'm reminded of you everywhere I look. We've gone shopping a lot this weekend and I constantly see things that I want to buy for you. I feel hopeful today that this could be the month. I know that most likely my hopeful outlook will be disappointed when I realize in a couple weeks that this wasn't the month, but it keeps me sane to stay hopeful. If it does happen this month, then that means you were conceived on vacation! How perfect would that be :)
One of the main reasons why we are hopeful that this is the month is because if it's not the month, then I have to have a vaccine done before the specialist will see us for further treatment. Which means for 30 days we will have to prevent pregnancy. The exact opposite of what we've been trying to do all these months.
If that is what happens, then I will have to have a vaccine done, wait 30 days, and then we can have our first round of fertility treatments done.
We are praying every day that you would come into our lives quickly, but that if that isn't God's plan, we would rest in knowing His timing is better than ours.
P.S. Also, if you are conceived this month, you'll be able to wear the St. Patrick's day outfit we bought for you to match your cousin Jude!
- Hi everyone! My name is Sarah, and I am a Christian, saved and sustained daily by my wonderful Savior. I am a wife to my high school sweetheart, Mitch; we got married at 19! I am a daughter, a sister, a friend, an aunt, a co-worker, and a woman that struggles with infertility. God has used this struggle to completely transform my life. I have experienced fear, hope, anxiety, compassion, trust, peace, tears, excitement, pain, laughter, and many other things that come with infertility. But most of all, I have a deeper trust and friendship with my Creator and my husband, and for this, I am forever thankful. The purpose of this blog is for me to remember the ups and downs of this trial, and how my Savior has brought me through it all. For those who have never struggled in this area, I hope this blog will help you see a glimpse into the life of someone struggling with infertility, so that you might better know how to encourage them through these difficult times. I also pray that this blog will help other women struggling in this area to know that you are not alone! There is a river of peace that is found in Christ that can help you through even the darkest of circumstances, I promise!
