To freeze or not to freeze.....
Thank you so much for all of your prayers and responses regarding my last post. Rob and I have decided not to freeze any embryos. We have chosen to trust God with the 3 eggs that Dr. J chooses to try and fertilize and if all 3 fertilize or if none fertilize, we will just trust that God is letting His will be done(I have truly felt like God never gave me peace about freezing. I also believe that God may give others peace with that option, but it isn't His plan for us specifically). I believe that if God's will is to bless us with a baby this IVF cycle, then He really only needs one. Having more to work with really isn't going to change the outcome. I just have a really strong peace and trust right now, so please just pray that God continues to bless me with that.
Rob and I have been married for 5 years! He is the best husband ever and I am so thankful for him! In April of 2007 we started TTC. We went through 3 cycles of oral meds, 3 cycles of injectable meds w/IUI, 2 surgeries and 1 failed IVF(we have 3 babies in heaven). It sure was a rollercoaster ride and some days were really hard but our marriage only got stronger and we grew closer to God throughout all of it. In November of 2009 God gave us a heart for adoption and we pursued domestic open adoption! On April 27th, all of our stuff went up online and we were officially waiting!
August 2010 we felt led to pursue IVF #2! After another surgery and a bumpy round of IVF, we were expecting twins in August 2011!!! Praise God from whom all blessings flow!!! Our sweet baby girls were born June 22, 2011 at 34 weeks due to preeclampsia. Natalie spent 5 weeks in the NICU for feeding problems and Sydney spent 6 weeks in the NICU with severe reflux and feeding problems. I feel like God used that experience to make me a better NICU nurse. I now have the perspective of a NICU parent! We are so thankful for these wonderful blessing God has given us! They were definitely "worth the wait"!
