Went great :)

Thursday, February 04, 2010

Thank you all for your prayers for us this morning! Our IUI went very smoothly, and I am very bloated and tender right now. Bring on the running pants!!

As I was driving over there, I was thinking how I initially thought our IUI would be this weekend. Then when I learned that Mr. A's family wanted to visit this weekend, I was all in a fuss that that might not work too well if we have to be half an hour away at 8am Sunday morning without a good explanation.

Then at my u/s on Monday, it was revealed that my follies were unusually ahead of themselves and so we would avoid the potential to have to explain where we were going to Mr. A's family. (Not that they would not like it or disapprove- they are just not the "intimate details" type of family- they would probably be uncomfortable just because they don't talk about personal stuff.)

Little did I know then, we're supposed to get a major snowstorm this weekend. Which is a tad more inconvenient than explaining our medical lives to Mr. A's parents.

Do you see what God has orchestrated?

All I could think about today was the people whose entire cycles (and savings) hinge on being able to do a baseline u/s or an ER or ET this weekend. I praise God for providing us the opportunity to do this IUI today. I was mentioning this to the receptionist at my RE and she said there is a girl there whose critical cycle days they could use to predict major snows. I guess the storm we got before Christmas was also an important time for her! I cannot imagine.

We all have times where we feel forgotten by God, but I can tell you today that I felt very important in God's eyes. I am so lucky (and unworthy) for Him to line up our cycle dates and put great hope into my heart, while others are facing cancelled cycles and cracking dreams.

When I was walking out of the RE office, I stopped by my nurse's office to see if she met Mr. A this morning when he was there for his part. She said she had missed him! She is such a sweetheart. She told me, "I'll just have to meet him next time..." (as I'm thinking, next time?!, there isn't going to be a next time!) but she continued, "...when you're here for your early pregnancy ultrasound!" Okay, I'll agree to that!!

And the receptionist told me to call her with good news in 2 weeks. Okey doke! Needless to say, I walked out of there with a big smile on my face!

And, what song do you think was playing on the radio when I got into my car?! None other than "What faith can do" (Kutless), that spoke so clearly to me last week!! Oh my goodness, I about died! Can you believe that?! I am not kidding!!

I feel very priveleged today to have experienced all of this encouragement. I strongly believe that this is Godly encouragement. In the past, I would have doubted this. But I think it's high time I stop doubting that our God would choose to interact with us in everyday ways. I am praying that this encouragement will reveal a healthy little one snuggled in tight from this cycle, but even if it doesn't, I am encouraged that our family will be expanded by the hand of God. And once we are cradling our little one(s), I don't want to look back on our journey and see my doubt of the encouragement that was interjected along the way.

Our big God has big plans, when He gives me big encouragement, I'm going to respond with big faith!

It is interesting how our cycles just work out that way. I was so nervous my husband would be out of town when I needed him, but as usual my follicles are slow growing so everything was ok :)

GREAT news, and what an amazing gift from the Lord in the timing!

Noelle said...

What an absolutely beautiful post. I do believe that God orchestrated all of that for you. I think that sometimes it is just so EVIDENT that it is Him. In your case, it was blaring evident. I feel like God is creating this beautiful story for you...One that you will be able to share with others and with your future children. I am praying right now that you have a miracle brewing in there!
