An Update

Just wanted to update on how everything was going. The shots have actually not been that bad, just a few bruises on my belly. I'm responding really well to all of the meds, so that is extremely good. The time really has been gone by quickly, We are still not sure of the exact time everything will be happening yet, but we would love any and all prayers in the next several weeks.

I have definitely have had some freak out moments. I also keep running all different kinds of scenarios through my head about all the different outcomes that could happen. I know this is the planner and worrier in me and I also know that I cannot whatsoever control this situation. We are putting complete faith in our mighty God that His will will be done through this whole process. We give the outcome to Him. Giving up control may be the hardest thing for me, but I knew choosing ivf would leave me no other option, because this is something completely out of our control.

I cannot tell you how grateful I am for the support we have received and the sweet prayers lifted up on our behalf. We are humbled and thankful for each of you that have been on this journey with us and that have cared enough to think of us. I had no idea a little blog would ever allow that, but it truly has and it has been wonderful. So thank you to all that read this blog of ours.

Yesterday someone referenced this verse and it really struck me. As we go through the procedure part of this process I will know God is holding my hand through it all and He will not leave me and He will be my strength to get me through!

Psalm 77: 21-23 and 26 {NIV}
21 When my heart was grieved
   and my spirit embittered,
22 I was senseless and ignorant;
   I was a brute beast before you.
 23 Yet I am always with you;
   you hold me by my right hand

26 My flesh and my heart may fail,
   but God is the strength of my heart    and my portion forever.
