No go...

Well, I honestly didn't believe I would have to make this post. But, unfortunately, here I sit with tears in my eyes and a huge lump in my throat. The IUI did not work for us this time. I am trying to stay positive but the first day is always the hardest. The heartache is almost unbearable and the cramps don't make it any easier. I'm not really sure where this road is taking me but I'm hopeful that I will come to the end of it soon. Right now I'm just praying for God to mend my broken heart and give me peace to get through today......because that is the only way to get through this......one day at a time. As much as I am hurting right now it so comforting to know that He is with me. His Word tells us that He is right there with us during hard times......even though we feel like he is so far removed that we may never feel His presence again. Here are just a few examples of scripture that tell us this.

"Weeping may remain for a night, but rejoicing comes in the morning." Psalm 30:5

"The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit." Psalm 34:18

"The salvation of the righteous comes from the LORD; he is their stronghold in time of trouble." Psalm 37:39

When I started typing this post I was in tears and didn't want to face the day. But after reading through His Word to find these verses, I am already starting to feel the peace that I am praying for. I'm not saying that the next few days will not still be hard, but they will be a little easier knowing that I serve such a loving God.

Mother's Day IUI

We had our first IUI on Mother's Day!! How awesome is that??!! Everything went well and we are just having to wait it out to see if it worked. I go back to the doctor on Monday to have my Progesterone checked which will confirm ovulation. I am praying without ceasing that God is knitting our baby in my womb right this very minute. And, as he tells us to do in His Word, I am already thanking Him for it!! I'll let you all know as soon as I know!!! Please keep us in your prayers!!

"For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well." Psalm 139:13-14

I prayed for this child, and the LORD has granted me what I asked of him. So now I give him to the LORD. For his whole life he will be given over to the LORD..” 1 Samuel 1:27-28
