Last night I hopped on a plane and came out to where my IPs live for transfer day today. Everything getting on the flight was awesome, until we got to just east of the area we were landing in and there was a storm. A nice bright lightning storm was going on just to the north of us as we descended for landing. Kind of scary but far enough away from us that I wasn't worried. Just very bumpy going in.
We went to eat a late dinner and came home and I got settled in and slept peacefully all night. And we made it to transfer on time! Unfortunately, due to some extenuating circumstances at work, IM was unable to stay with me during transfer. I felt so bad for her! But her aunt was able to stay with me and I got to get to know her and enjoyed chatting while we waited.
Something interesting happened this morning and I really feel like I need to share it here before I tell you about transfer.
I have been determined lately to stay in God's Word and keep my spiritual life strong going into and through this journey. So I've been doing a lot more Bible reading and praying and a lot of working on my heart. So this morning, we were in a rush and I couldn't do a devotion on my computer before I left. While we (IM's aunt and I) were waiting, I got my phone out and went to my "You Version" app (the Bible app) and went to their devotion programs. I chose one that said a 21-day Women's Devotional, and started at day 1. The verses that it took me to were Luke 1:26-45 when the angel came to Mary and told her she would become pregnant, and when Elizabeth who was barren was pregnant with John. The verse that jumped out at me, other than the topic being impeccable timing, was verse 45 "Blessed is she who has believed that the Lord would fulfill his promises to her!"
Anyway, God is good and He shows His will in our lives in so many ways. As a friend on Facebook put it today, "He still speaks!" and I totally believe it.
Transfer went well, two great embryos were transfered, and as the doctor said, "They flew right in to right where they needed to go!" Then I laid on an incline for 20 minutes, grabbed breakfast, and came back to IPs house to sleep the day away.
So yay! Transfer went great, and I'm enjoying getting to know IPs and their two little boys. Tonight, obviously, we're praying those embies stick, stick, stick!! Pray with me?
Father God thank you so much for the awesome Word in Luke, and for showing it to me. I definitely believe you do what you say you are going to do and I know you have blessed my life beyond anything I could dream up already. Bless the little embryos that were placed inside today, grow them and form them and help them find the right place to burrow in for the next 38 weeks or so. I pray for the rest of this trip to go smoothly, for more awesome time with I & J, and for safe travel home. I know you are working in not only my body but in my heart, and I thank you for that. It's in Your Son's Name I come to you and pray, Amen
