Uncertainty

Wednesday, February 03, 2010

(Before I start my actual post, I just want to express my thanks for all the prayers that will be (and have been) raised for a successful IUI (tomorrow at 10am) for us this time! The trigger went well last night :) If When we find out that we're pregnant, our due date will be my older-of-my-younger-sisters sister's birthday! Hope she will be willing to share it!!)

What I really want to post about today is about the uncertainty of our lives and how awesome it is that we come together and rejoice with those who rejoice and weep with those who weep (Romans 12:15).

How many of us thought our lives would turn out one way and have been surprised that our actual life is not what we imagined? Hello, every single person who is struggling with infertility!! Hello, every single person who was convinced a new cycle was starting, only to receive a BFP!

But uncertainty touches so many others around us in many different ways, even though I identify with the anguish of uncertainty through trying to conceive. (I know, it's hard to think sometimes that people who don't struggle with infertility have problems!!)

This post was inspired by the younger-of-my-younger-sisters sister who finds herself in somewhat uncertain times right now with a specific part of her life. It's not at all what she imagined.

Please join me in praying for her today- that she would feel resolution soon, and peaceful and prayerful about any outcome, and surrounded by family and friends if that outcome is not what she had been anticipating!

IF is filled with uncertainty!!! I know the feeling. I will pray for you as you go for your IUI tomorrow! I am praying for lots of heathy sperm and great eggs! May they meet in the middle and call your uterus home for the next 10 months. Amen!

Many prayers are being sent your way today for you & your sister.

Isn't it funny how we plan & think & just know how things will turn out and then BAM...totally different. I love how God does that to us. Makes me remember, oh yeah...you know what you're doing.

I truly believe A that this is it. Good luck tomorrow :) !!

Yes, the uncertainty and helplessness that comes with IF is tough...and I, too, am so thankful for a community of women to walk with during these times.

I look forward to hearing about tomorrow - praying it goes well!

If someone had told me years ago that my life would be what it is now, I never would have believed them! It definitely is not what I planned for, but we take what the Lord gives us and we use it to best glorify Him. I'm saying a prayer for your sister!

Best of luck with your IUI! I'm sending great thoughts your way :D

There are several things in my life that are different than what I expected, but I wouldn't trade it. Good luck tomorrow and prayers being sent for you and your sister!

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.

I know what you mean about life turning out differently. I think it's impossible to experience infertility without thinking, "how the heck did I end up here!"

Thinking of you today and hoping for a successful IUI. Also thinking of your sister.
