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!

2DP5DT

2DP5DT is something I never thought I would understand the meaning to. I didn't think when we got married, or first started trying to have a baby that I would end up knowing every fertility word and acronym there was to know. Basically this means, two days past a five day transfer, which is exactly what today is for me.

I had my third IVF transfer on Sunday. We transferred two healthy embryos! This means that or chance of pregnancy are higher, but also our chances for another set of twins is higher too!! How cool would that be? Two sets of twins!

I forgot how hard this waiting process was though!!! The earliest I can test for pregnancy is 6dp5dt, which is still 4 days away! Or pretty much only 3 if you consider the fact that today is pretty much over ;)

Praying for these two sweet embryos to find a comfy place to call home for the next 8-9 months! I will be so excited to see our first children become siblings to another baby. They already have the cutest interactions ever, so I can't even imagine how precious it would be to see 3 or 4 of our children altogether!!

I know that God is good, whether I end up pregnant or not, and that is why I can close my eyes and sleep peacefully tonight.

I love all of our children!! Our 4 previous embryos that didn't survive, our first little snowflake that we never got to hold, the two embryos that are hopefully settling in as I type, and our two biggest blessings, Maddox and Madeline!!! My cup overflows!
