Well I am a little bummed today. I am just not feeling it. I know I'll be ok if it doesn't work but it will suck too. Please keep praying that our little ones will make their homes in there for the next 9 months. I probably won't update the blog anymore for a couple of weeks. I think I am just going to take a break. The encouragement from everyone is so appreciated and it helps so much but I think I would be better off staying away from some of the other blogs I find and the Internet too. Your encouragement and prayers mean so much to me. Thank you so so so much! We don't want to share our testing date because if it would be positive we want to share that with our families first and if it is negative we just want some time to deal with that alone I think. Love you all!
Jeremiah 29:11 (New International Version)
11 For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
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"!
