The day is here again. I have had mixed emotions about this day. It wasn't long ago that I was laying on the same bed in the doctors office, holding daddy's hand while the doctor placed two beautiful embryos inside of me. Then 10 days later, we received the crushing news that the procedure did not take, and I was still not pregnant. At the time of that first transfer, we had everyone we knew praying for us. It was a huge step in our journey, and we wanted everyone to be involved and be praying. But this time, we want it to be a surprise. We want to finally have the chance to knock everyone's socks off with the news of a pregnancy!
So daddy and I decided that we would do this transfer, and keep it top secret. This was somewhat easy to do. We told a few people that we were going to be having some tests run for the next couple of months to see if we could figure out why the first transfer didn't work. But little do they know, we transferred two more precious embryos today!!
Daddy and I have been praying for so long now, that we would finally get to meet you. I pray that both of you would make yourselves nice and cozy in there, and that you would stay for 9 whole months! I pray that we will get to see your sweet heartbeats soon, and that we would get to watch you grow in my belly! That I would finally get to feel the kick of our little babies inside of me. I can't wait!!
Ten more days of patience, and we will know the results of this second transfer. The doctor feels very confident that we will achieve a pregnancy this cycle. Praying for you every day!!! Love you!
- 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!
