Happy Mother's Day

Sunday, May 09, 2010

I just want to wish all of us- mothers or waiting-to-be-mothers, a happy day today. Or at least a bearable Mother's Day for people really struggling today. It's such a hard day for those of us waiting, but what makes it easier is that we know that so many of you who have overcome infertility are praying for us!! (At least it does for me!)

The news show we're watching this morning (my back is getting sore from all this laying down, by the way...) mentioned that what is so great about moms is unconditional love. I feel the teeniest bit of that today. I know that a 4-cell embie on day 3 is not exactly the optimal conditions, but I (we) love this little girl/guy more than anything. We have so much hope that he will grow so well inside, and we are encouraged by people who have had success with such a transfer (I'm talking to you, Hoping for a Baby!). But every time we paused from breakfast today to pick up the picture of our little guy (or girl), we affirmed our faith that God can do huge things with what we have! He already has done so much by allowing this little embryo to be created!

I have to admit, there are times when I feel a little anxious and overwhelmed with how amazingly some people respond compared to how I did, or that they could transfer more perfect embryos, but for now, I do my best to push these negative thoughts away and focus on sending healthy, growing thoughts to our little embie. God has a unique plan and purpose for ME, and I'm trying not to compare myself to others. I am pregnant today, and for that I am thankful!! I am praying my heart out that God will allow me to carry this baby and that he/she will light up our lives in 9 months.

And I couldn't end this Mother's Day post without a huge thank you to Mr. A for making such an amazing breakfast while I was in the recliner doing nothing. I love you, sweetie!

Congratulations on your successful ET and being PUPO!! I'm so excited for you! I know 4-cells isn't the textbook definition of perfect, but that little one is your baby and still perfect nonetheless. My embies weren't perfect either!

I will do my best amidst the hospital chaos to keep up with your 2ww but please know I'm cheering you on even if I don't get a chance to comment!!

Congratulations on your successful transfer!! Every doctor and patient is different so don't think that a single transfer is lackluster! My doctor was SO adamant that we should only transfer one based on my age since the chance of implantation was pretty high (Im 34 and you are way younger than me!)
While I don't suggest googling "4 cell 3 day transfer" because you wont yield much results, I did find message boards where a lot of people posted success with 4 cell embryos. And of course, look at me! 19 weeks today.
I will definitely say prayers for you and wish you all of the luck in the world. (But really, God's will isn't luck, right?)
To quote YOU after I got my BFP, "GOD is the giver of life and HE is not bound by anything"
You are in my thoughts and prayers. (-:

Sigh. I'm with you...I'm always compairing myself to everyone else and their cycles. We just need to remember that GOD is the creator of life and in Him...ANYTHING is possible!!!
