Whew, it's been quite a month since I wrote! A lot has been going on for me, personally, so there really has not been time to update at all.
Now that the school year is over, its going to be a great summer. Let's kick it off by getting pregnant, shall we?
Our 2nd transfer is happening this Thursday, June 7 at 12:30!
Today I stocked up on pineapple and will have a bit each day this week (it's supposed to help make my uterus more hospitable). This week before Thursday, I'm cleaning the house to get ready for helpers who will be here while I'm on bedrest, and also getting meals ready for easy meals for Shane to do while I rest.
On Wednesday, we have scheduled a time for me to use the birthday gift that Katie got me! I will be getting a massage that evening to help me loosen up. Thursday my friend Brooke will take me to transfer again and I'll grab some McD's fries (surro tradition) and head to a hotel nearby home for some real good rest for the day/night to help the emby(ies) stick. Friday, Shane will pick me up from the hotel and I'll finish out my bedrest in my bed at home.
Katie is enjoying a restful week at the beach with her family...I hope I can give her happy news when she returns!
I haven't done this in a while, but I would really appreciate prayers from all around, so... if you could join me in prayer, thank you!
Father in Heaven, thank you so much for allowing me to meet Katie and her family and for giving me the opportunity to help them have a second baby. Lord your ways are higher than our ways, and we know that in all things you work together for our good. You've shown yourself faithful to give us what we desire in our hearts when our desires meet up with your will for our lives. Katie's desire is to have a baby, my desire is to help her. You've shown me time and time again that you will give me that desire if I hold strong to your word. So I am holding on now and believing that your will and our desires meet up and that there will be life in my womb this week. Father prepare my body to receive that which you have created. We trust that you will grow the embryo/embryos according to your purpose, we trust that you will guide the REs hands when putting it/them in on Thursday. Father help me to be everything those embryos need and have to be able to make their home for the next 40 weeks. I believe Lord that you can make miracles happen, and children are miracles....We stand on Your Word, with faith, that you can do this! In Jesus awesome name, Amen
