About Me

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!

Redeeming the Bathrooms


Today, I did something kind of crazy, but totally fun and worth it! I have 4 main bathrooms that are my "go to" bathrooms for taking pregnancy tests. CVS, Walmart, my work bathroom, and our master bathroom. I cannot tell you how many times I have seen a negative result in all 4 of those bathrooms. I have cried a lot of tears in every single one of those bathrooms. But today, I was on a mission. I was going to redeem those bathrooms! I was going to replace all of those sad memories with new ones.

I had already checked CVS off the list with my first ever positive pregnancy test. But I had 3 more bathrooms to go. I woke up this morning, and took a test in my master bathroom first thing. Those two pink lines will never get old, ever!! Then around lunchtime today at work, I took a few minutes to take a test in the big stall at my work bathroom. Still loved seeing those 2 lines show up, especially in that bathroom! Then, after work I decided to go to Walmart and buy a digital pregnancy test because I just wanted to see those priceless words show up "Pregnant". This bathroom was also a success!!

I know it sounds like your mommy is a little crazy, but you will just have to get used to that :) I do everything that I do with all my heart. I love with all my heart, I get excited, I get sad, I get worried, I get overjoyed, and you never have to guess how I am feeling. I am an open book, and that is something that I hope you get from me. Although, there are a lot more qualities that I hope you get from daddy.

Today was such a good and exciting day! It still seems unreal that I am actually able to pee on a stick and the result is positive. I am so thankful for days like today, but I probably need to stop spending so much money on pregnancy tests, and start working on your room!

I love you so much, and I pray for you every single day!
