How can I ever thank you all enough for all the prayers for our snowflake baby (who is officially known as ‘the fighter’ around here)? We are so, so grateful. With life as busy as it has been, the days seem to have flown by and in less than two days I will have my official blood work done. I have tried to keep my Facebook updated, but for those of you who only follow along here, I wanted to let you know that things have been going well. The crazy amounts of progesterone is the only thing I continue to struggle with–backache, some nausea, and extreme fatigue. I really cannot complain though. God has been good to me.
How am I feeling emotionally as we get closer to the big day? Truthfully, it definitely is an emotional time. I can understand what every woman has gone through as they have journeyed through IVF or FET (frozen embryo transfer). What is commonly known as the “two week wait” (those days after your embryo has been transferred into your womb and you wait to find out the results of your pregnancy test) is tough! You wonder. You check your symptoms a hundred times a day. You think about doing a home pregnancy test (or fifty). Many do. Some wait. It’s an emotional roller coaster, for sure.
But Jesus has been my anchor and my strongtower through it all. His peace has been ever-present.
Of course we’re praying and believing for a pregnancy and ultimately a live birth. We’re holding onto the hope that our little fighter has implanted in my uterus and is growing even now. We’re stepping out in blind faith and trusting our Father who is the same miracle-working God today as He was thousands of years ago.
When medical science said, “Just a 15% chance of survival,” we choose to listen to only One voice–the Voice of Truth who doesn’t go by statistics and doesn’t need medical science to determine an outcome. Yesterday, today, and forevermore…our God is able.
But at the end of the day, when all is said and done–when results are read and this journey either continues on or it doesn’t, Jesus will continue to take us by the hand and lead us onward.
His perfect will for our lives. That’s all we desire.
This little fighter will always have a piece of my heart!
And so we’ll continue to say it again and again, “Have your way, Father!”
Thank you for your love and your prayers. I’ll update you all here when we know what our answer from heaven will be.
