We had our final pre-transfer ultrasound this morning at 10:30. All praise, glory and honnor to God who did something only He could do! The fluid is gone!! My lining was still thin, somewhere between 5.3-5.8mm.
Ricky and I understand this is less than ideal circumstances according to science. We both, idenpendently decided that if God could remove the fulid and Dr. Shanti was willing to proceed that we would transfer our last remaiing embryo. Taht is exactly what happended this morning. We are scheduled to transfer our last embryo on Friday October 5th at 10:30 AM.
We are beyond grateful that Amy, our oringinal embryonologist is going to thaw the embryo. I feel like God has continued to pave the way for this transfer. I needed to re-arrange my work schedule to accomodate the change from today (Wedneday) to Friday. Shortly after we scheduled our original transfer for October 3rd I was offered a day of vacation for October 2nd. That vacation day allowed me to trade with a co-worker to have Friday off. God has been so good to us. We have endured some challenges along the way, but today we feel blessed that the fluid is gone and we are able to proceed. We are trusting in God's perfect plan for our lives and the life of this embryo.
I am reminded of Jeremiah 1:5, "Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you...".
This promise to Jeremiah is true of of this emnbryo. I beleive God knows him or her. I believe He has a purpose to glorify Himself through their life. One of my cousins also did IVF recently. She shared on Facebook a saying that was on their mirror during their IVF journey. They have been blessed this children as a result of IVF and she still hssn't erased this. It reads, "God has blessed us with this opportunity and He will give us a healthy baby".
This has been such an encouragement to me! Thank you for sharing this. We are trusing and believing that. God has blessed us with this opportunity and He will give us a healthy baby.
Thank you to everyone who has joined us in prayer. Please continue to join us in praying for Friday October 5th at 10:30. We are praying for God to contionue to do what ony He can do and allow this embryo to implant and grow into a healthy baby.
