The Journey...

So we've had another setback in our journey to becoming parents. My gastrointerolgist thought it would be best for me to wait until I had my 8 week infusion before giving me the clear to try IVF again. My next infusion isn't until the end of May, which means I won't be able to do another cycle until July.

As expected, I was very upset to hear this news. Don't get me wrong, I want everything to be perfect when we go through this cycle, I'm just frustrated with being told that we need to wait yet again.

Someone very important to me shared these words of wisdom...

It's not the finish, that makes a person but the roads we took to get to the end.....keep your mind and focus clear and enjoy each day you have been given.

So I'm taking this advice and focussing on the journey.

Infertility and TTC is a constant waiting game. I like the saying "It will be ok in the end. If it is not ok, then it isn't the end." Keeping you in my thoughts=)

So sorry! Praying you are able to enjoy the time of waiting.

"When things go wrong as they sometimes will,
When the road you're trudging seems all up hill,
When the funds are low and the debts are high
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest if you must, but don't you quit.
Life is queer with its twists and turns,
As every one of us sometimes learns,
And many a failure turns about
When he might have won had he stuck it out;
Don't give up though the pace seems slow--
You may succeed with another blow,
Success is failure turned inside out--
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
And you never can tell how close you are,
It may be near when it seems so far;
So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit--
It's when things seem worst that you must not quit."

I'm so sorry :( That stinks. You have probably already heard this sermon before but I just listened to it last night and it was awesome. It's by Gregg Matte at FBC Houston (Beth Moore's church?) and it's called Empty Womb full hearts. IF you haven't heard it you HAVE to go listen to it. It will really bless you. Here's the link:

I'm so sorry, but glad you are feeling better! Just think the better you feel the more you are going to feel like doing with your future kids! :) (Gotta find something good about a not so good situation.) I am praying for you! I have a feeling this is the answer.

I'm so very behind on blogging...well, everything actually. Just saw this post and I am SO sorry about the setback! You continue to be in my thoughts and prayers! I think you need a get-away trip to Arkansas very soon!
