Waiting For Baby Mayo
Now, as we move forward, we have $5,000 left on our $24,000 dollar InVitro bill! This is exciting as we have been able to pay every ultrasound and consultation bill in cash, with only the actual procedure going on a credit card. We have until July to pay it off and we know we can do it! Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers as we continue to work towards paying this miracle off.
We so appreciate all your encouragement and gifts towards our family of three!
Going back to work was a little harder than I imagined as every movement felt like some sort of endangerment to the embryos within me. I was also given estrogen pills and Cronin to take everyday which means, crazy-strong emotions, crying for no reason, and bouts of anger. From what I hear, everyone is different and reacts differently to the medications. Three days into the work week, I began to bleed. There was immediate shock and then overwhelming fear. My doctor had me come in for blood test every other day the following week and we kept a close eye on the situation.
Eight days went by and I had never felt more like a failure in my life. My body, for some reason, was rejecting all the hard work, prayers, and hopes that went into this InVitro process. Yet, we still held on to hope and each other. Nick was truly amazing. Even though his worst fears were coming true, everyday he woke up and every night before he fell asleep, Nick would lay hands on my belly and pray. He would thank God for the babies He was creating within me and would ask that our fears would turn into joy. While our doctor has yet to rule anything out, she is asking me to continue taking the medications and wait two weeks until we get an accurate answer.
Two weeks. Seems longer than the 9 years we've been trying to get pregnant. Yet, we will wait, we will hope, and we will pray.
Stay tuned, we will be posting again in two weeks!
We are so appreciative for the prayers that have been said, the food that's been dropped off, the flowers and visits, and donations towards our journey. Thank you for being apart of our story, we can't wait to share the next chapter with you!
Words were sparse from spouse to spouse.
Lost in in the thoughts swirling in the air,
Each reaching out to the other to let them know they care.
Leaving for an ice cream date,
To talk about life and their fate.
Realizing that if the plan was to succeed,
Their fear would finally be freed.
It was off to bed to get ready for the day,
But not before they held each other to pray.
Will you join us in hopes to see His glory,
While we wait for another baby story?
