Update

It's been a while since I shared an update so I thought I would let everyone know whats been going on with us in the past few weeks. We had our Dr's appointment to discuss what could have went wrong and my Dr was scratching his head. He felt confident that this was going to be a successful cycle since my lining looked good and we had such an excellent quality embryo.
This failed attempt did help me have a better understanding that if this is not in God's timing that nothing my Doctor could do could interfere with what God has planned.

I had 2 amazing things going for me (perfect embryo and lining) and all the confidence in the world that this was going to happen. But I do feel that as I got caught up in the IVF process that I focused more on the Dr's to fix my situation rather than God. I have to have faith that whatever happens that He will give us our hearts desire. He has placed this desire to have a child in our heart and I truly believe that He would not have done this if I could never have a baby. I have to have faith.

My Pastor shared this and I wanted to share with you:

'Faith doesn't exempt you  from life's storms it just equips and prepares you to go through them!'
"Today build a confidence in The God who will never let you down. You will still have to face some struggles but now they are allowed by God to strengthen your life and not destroy you. Faith equips your life to live out the journey! There are many twists and turns along the way but maintain the course and it will take you to your intended destination".

Our next step will be to have an Endometrial Scratching completed and then to transfer our last remaining embryo, which is also in excellent condition.

    1. Thank you Lisa, the fresh cycle was the one that didn't actually work. We will be trying the frozen cycle next month.

  3. You always find the thing you're looking for in the last place you look. Hope this last emby is like that for you - hang in there!

  4. Here from ICLW. So sorry to hear that your IVF cycle didn't work. If there's anything I've learned from our journey, it's that so much about conception and pregnancy that is a mystery. It would be so much easier if there was a way to "control" or "make" it happen! but that isn't the case. I'm sure it doesn't make the disappointment easier, but does sound like good news that your embryo and lining are high quality. Every little thing you have going for you can lead to the happy news soon. Best of luck on your journey and lots of hugs. :-)

  7. So sorry you had to experience another BFN. It's very hard, but I'm glad you are still hopeful. I love what your pastor said - "build a confidence in The God who will never let you down." That's something that I need to remind myself of daily.

    (Happy ICLW!)

  8. I love that line from your pastor about faith not exempting you from life's storms. That really resonates. I'm so sorry things didn't work out this cycle. But have faith. I went through two miscarriages myself before we were successful. I know how frustrating it can be, and how hard it can be to have faith that things will work out. You just have to keep putting one foot in front of the other

  10. Hi from ICLW. The scratching worked well for a family member of mine that had two embryos transferred and both took. Wishing you all the best and praying that this one takes!

  11. There is nothing easy about any of this and it is really hard to make sense of it all. All the best on the next leg of this journey!

  13. I had a doctor who once said to me that scientists know more about the surface of the moon than a woman's reproductive biology, and why some things work and some don't. Wishing you well from ICLW.
