Ding, Ding, Ding!



Round 2

The first round of fertility treatments didn't work. I'm disappointed but I remain hopeful.

Today I start round two. I know the average pregnancy on treatment happens around cycle 4. Ham was conceived on cycle 6. Though I understand that, I'm still praying to get pregnant sooner rather than later as the drugs and hormones are intense. I know Jesus is right here in this exam room with me. I can feel his love and presence. I'll one day be free of the challenges of infertility. Until then, I will trust and rest in the Lord.


I found this today and could not stop laughing.  It is sad how incredibly REAL this is.  Too bad there is no prayer included in this.  I think I would just give up if I didn't have my faith.  I would like to had pray, pray, pray, pray, pray, pray, pray...each day.  Still worthy of sharing.
