Living with Infertility

Wanting, hoping waiting,
Loving, longing, knowing,
Feeling the loss before I could lose you.
Never seeing, touching or smelling.
Dreaming, aching, crying.
Losing the hope and joy,
Of Motherhood.

The Waiting Game

Thank you everyone for keeping us in your prayers while we have been going through this in-vitro process. The embryo transfer went really well today, everything was very smooth and the staff at the University of Utah Reproductive Medicine team has been excellent. Everyone is so nice and helpful and very considerate of our situation.

I wanted to take a minute and explain the process today so everyone is up to speed on what is going on. Since the last update, there were 5 embryos that had fertilized, in the last couple of days 2 of the embryos kept growing, and 3 stopped :( but we did get 2 really good embryos :) those two embryos were implanted today and now we wait and hope that they both or at least one attaches, if it does, success. If not, back to square one. We're really hopeful and have felt really good about the whole process. Hopefully in a couple of weeks we have great news to share.

Niki is doing great and is resting for the rest of the week, while the little embryos do their thing (please attach!).

So what now? Waiting. Lots and lots of waiting. Wish us luck, and please, prayers, lots of prayers for us.

For those who are going through our struggle, you are not alone. There are so many couples out there going through the same thing. Reach out to others in your situation if you know them and get the support you need. If not, we sometimes have to educate those around us so that they can support us in our trial. We all need support from others to get through this. We can get through this, it's tough, but it's possible. With the help of family, friends, the Lord, and our determination to seek out the blessings that the Lord has for us, we can have that joy that we desire.
