For the most part, everything is on schedule and going well. I just wanted to post a quick update. As of Friday, I started feeling/experiencing a great deal of side effects from the birth control. I hate the way my body feels right now and I’m anxious for May 8th to get here. My mom reminded me this morning to take it one day at a time and to continue to keep my eye on the prize. Thanks for your pep talk this morning, mom!! I needed it…
Anyways, I also wanted to ask each of you to pray and believe with us that this upcoming egg retrieval is successful in number! If we get enough eggs and are able to get at least three developed embryo from this retrieval, we would not need a second one — which would save my body from another cycle of medications and save our wallet approximately $8,000.
I would be lying if I didn’t confess to the fact that I’ve been fighting doubt and worry the past couple of weeks. I am determined to remain optimistic and continue to trust that God’s perfect will be done. However, satan has a way of sprinkling a dusting of doubt on your circumstances that can completely discourage and overwhelm you. Steve and I pray every morning together for this journey to unfold as God would desire — and regardless of the outcome, His perfect peace would consume us. Amen, amen, amen!
Thank you for your continued prayers and support. Love to all of you!
