So, this has been a VERY expensive & eventful week and weekend. I had 2 ultrasounds, blood work twice, 5 shots, trigger shot on Friday, we inseminated on Saturday, and a very powerful message at Heartsong on Sunday.
So, we went in for the IUI on Saturday morning and it was kind of surreal sitting in the office waiting for Robbie's part. A lady came in with her 16 month old and husband to get blood drawn because she got a positive on Thursday. She was praising the doctor because this was her second miracle that he had helped her with. Of course she had a different problem than me, but it was interesting to hear her story and that she had the same fears I have even with a different issue. Robbie went to work and I went back an hour later for the main event. My only fear was the number of sperm there would be. I was super relieved and happy when I saw the number on the paper. It was more than it had been for the initial testing. 2.2 million more!!!! Aside from my cervix not wanted to be bothered, it was painless! No cramping, no nothing once my cervix decided to cooperate. I prayed during the entire procedure that God would help those little swimmers find the egg(s) this time and that the time was right. In 15 min I was on my way home. I had some cramping that night, but it went away after a while.
Today I woke up early and headed to church, its been a while since we have been. But, Robbie had to work, so I was on my own. I have to say in the past almost every message I found myself hearing exactly what God wanted me to hear, almost like the message was specifically for me. Well, I think that this message was just for me more than ever. I wanted to share it with you all. With Christmas only 20 days away the message series is titled, A Christmas Conspiracy: The Subversion Message of The Birth of Jesus, today's message was on God Comes First. Well, aside from the fact that he focused on the fact that God chose Mary to conceive Jesus, it was centered around the fact that with God all things are possible. An example to Mary was that Elizabeth was in her forties and had been able to conceive, which only made it more like a God was saying Hey Morgan... Pay attention :)
Now, I know this and I am sure if you believe in God then you do too. But, it was just what I needed to be reminded, since we have just done the iui.
At one point on the screen there was a picture of a baby's face and hand in utero. I was bawling. I am crying now thinking/ typing about it. I took away with me the feeling that God was trying to let me know that it will happen, to just keep believing and putting him first. So, I just wanted to share that with you all! I know that I get down traveling this journey, but I have to remember all things are possible with God!
I have a peaceful feeling about this. If I'm not in for a Christmas Miracle, then I know my miracle will come sometime in the future!
