My blood work came back perfect again today! That's 4 blood draws this week and excellent numbers each time! This makes me feel so relieved to know that you are growing strong! There are still moments that I get scared that you will meet Jesus before I get to hold you in my arms, but I'm praying non stop each day for peace and strength. I'm praying that you will grow and be a healthy baby that we can meet in just a few short months! And now the next big day I am praying for is the 22nd!! This is the day that we are scheduled to see your heartbeat for the first time!! I will be 7 weeks pregnant that day, so we should be able to see a nice strong heartbeat! Praying that God would give me patience and peace over these next 18 days. Keep growing in there, our sweet little tie-breaker!!
- 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!
