Back to Normal

Literally- back to hey, let's do it and have a baby in 9 months! Awesome idea!!

QOTD: Has anyone actually rolled in the hay while, you know, "rolling in the hay"?? Time to spill the beans!!!

Had an excellent acupuncture session yesterday afternoon- she has changed up the points some, since we're not doing IVF anymore, but still points for relaxing of the fallopian tubes/uterus, increased bloodflow all around, a general spirit-well-being point, and the special mother/child points (I forget what she called them). I was in heaven lying there!!

I was telling her how I am surprised with how well we have dealt with this drastic change of (our) plans. I mean, if you had asked me 3 weeks ago how I would have been if I only would get two follicles and have our first shot at IVF cancelled, I would have estimated that I'd have been really devastated. After all, it was sort of the final frontier for us. But as it has happened, I actually feel so much at peace with how things have changed, I know for sure that God is working here. It's completely obvious how I want God to be working right now, but just as I didn't expect such grace to come out of a cancelled IVF cycle, I know that whatever He has coming will be very unexpected and very amazing!!

A...I am so glad you are finding peace with the situation. Sometimes we don't know why God has us on a certain path...one day it will be clear to you. If nothing else to be able to share you journey and touch the life of just one fellow IF'er.

I'll continue to pray for you!

You are such a strong person, I know I would find it very very hard to even try to make peace with the cancellation. You are in my prayers darling, and hey things do happen for a reason so maybe rolling in the hay might just work, fingers crossed!

You find a certain peace once it dawns on you that God is in control. He has a game plan for us all; we just haven't seen the play book! Best of luck to you!

It always amazes me how God takes a seemingly negative situation, and turns it in to a positive! Praying that God will bless you with a BFP in a couple weeks!

He ALWAYS has a plan - even through the bigger disappointments. Still, going through those disappointments is always hard. Finding peace with it is all we can do though - I'm so glad you are finding your way there.

So true...God's way of doing things is always unexpected - and always amazing! Praying for an amazing blessing to come your way very, very soon!!

Leah said...

That is what is always amazing to me about infertility. . . the resilience of those that experience it. I remember so many times saying, I could NEVER get through this or that. But then I got through it.

Thinking of you A.

God is good my friend and he will bless us with a baby. I'm so happy that you are feeling better =)

Thankful said...

Sounds like a great acu session to accompany your great perspective! Enjoy rolling in the hay, or wherever you end up doing it! :)

Roll in the hay? Nope. I’m an indoor girl through and through.

I really have a lot of hope for you this cycle. Is that the thickest your lining has ever been? I couldn’t remember, but that is some cushy lining you’ve got together with 2 big targets.

I’m proud of you, too, for being willing to stop when the situation wasn’t ideal/up to your expectations. So many people would’ve just had their heart set on it and charged ahead anyway and then, probably regretted it later.

Becky said...

You are making me want to have acupuncture!

I am so glad you continue to have such peace about the cancellation. I can't wait to see what the Lord has in store for you - it is going to be amazing. You are in my prayers during this 2ww.
