Strike 2

Unfortunately, we learned today that IUI #2 was not a success. It has been a long and emotional day to say the least.

I don't have much to say right now, but wanted to keep you all in the loop nonetheless. Thanks to all of you for continuing to hold out hope for us.

We are down, but not out.

Psalm 46
1 God is our refuge and strength,
    an ever-present help in trouble.
2 Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way
    and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea,
3 though its waters roar and foam
    and the mountains quake with their surging.
4 There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God,
    the holy place where the Most High dwells.
5 God is within her, she will not fall;
    God will help her at break of day.
6 Nations are in uproar, kingdoms fall;
    he lifts his voice, the earth melts.
7 The Lord Almighty is with us;
    the God of Jacob is our fortress.
8 Come and see what the Lord has done,
    the desolations he has brought on the earth.
9 He makes wars cease
    to the ends of the earth.
He breaks the bow and shatters the spear;
    he burns the shields with fire.
10 He says, “Be still, and know that I am God;
    I will be exalted among the nations,
    I will be exalted in the earth.”

I think calling this "strike 2" is pretty generous. By my count, this is strike 489 or so. :( Love you and hate this.

I'm so sorry to hear! Hopefully, y'all keep playing the theme song by Mr. Mraz.

Brittnie said...

Oh girl. My heart hurts for y'all. I am always praying but if there is anything else you need please just let me know. I'm here if you need a coffee date or just need to vent, cry whatever. Seriously.

This stinks. I'm so sorry. Hang in there, every day is one day closer to you holding your baby...even really sad, crappy days like today.

Leah said...

ugh this sucks. You know, God planned every single so-called "failed attempt." He planned them and gave them to you for your good. It sucks sucks sucks, but you know that he is good and he is working it out for your faith and for his glory. I will continue to pray with faith that you get pregnant soon.
