I am SO glad that today is Friday and that I get to sleep in tomorrow (keep your fingers crossed that the puppy will too!). It definitely looks like IUI may be a go this cycle! CBEFM (Clear Blue Easy Fertility Monitory) is still reading low so that’s a great sign! I told John the good news last night & he’s excited too! I am so ready to get this journey with infertility over with!!!
While I have been missing John like crazy, God has really been speaking to me in this time I have alone. He has just given me so many reminders that He is here with me all throughout this journey and all I have to do is trust Him. Isn’t that crazy? That is all He is asking and He will do the rest. True, sometimes it is easier to say it than to do it, but I am filled with such a peace knowing who is in control. And its not me! United Live has recorded a song that brings me to tears everything I hear it because its words describe everything that I am feeling. Here they are:
Ugh, I have had such a frustrating weekend! Let me start by saying that I had a wonderful time with John’s family. It was so good to see them and spend some quality time with each of them. Vickie and I did some mother/daughter bonding over shopping Saturday afternoon and here’s where it gets frustrating. I saw some of the cutest clothes already out for fall but in the back of my mind I kept asking myself, “Could I wear that if I get pregnant?” I had the same problem last fall and the fall before that. I’ve been asking myself this question for almost TWO YEARS!! I am so over it! But I am aware that I cannot put my life on hold because of infertility so I will probably be back out shopping this weekend! Hahaha! Especially since my mom will be in town 🙂
The other frustrating part of the weekend was that my pain was back full force. I have hurt so bad and it has forced me to take my prescription painkillers. I really thought that this third surgery would do the trick but I really don’t feel much of a difference and its been almost 8 weeks. I just don’t understand. I’m having to go to my general doctor at 10:30 today to be sure I don’t have an ear infection so I might ask her opinion. I just wish I could go a week without having to talk to a doctor! Is that too much to ask?
In addition, I am officially alone until Friday. John left with our high schoolers this morning to head to Charleston, SC for a mission trip. I will miss him very much but I know that they will have an AWESOME time. It just one more thing that my health as caused me to miss out on 🙁
