I hope you can find it in your hearts to pray for me and my husband and our little miracle as we have had previous miscarriages and are always worried about that.
To God be the glory VGibs . I'm soo happy for you, congratulations !!!

Please keep in touch on this thread so we know how to pray. We're all for rejoicing with those who rejoice .

Hugs and blessings your way,
Faith xx

It all starts off with AF arriving, hopefully my last one for the next 9 months

Here is what is going to be happening in the next 6 weeks…

• Start birth control pills on CD 3 for 3 weeks
• Go in with hubby to sign IVF consents
• baseline ultrasound and order medication
• injection training
• start Lupron
• pre-stimulation ultrasound and blood test
• reduce lupron and continue daily until instructed to stop
• start follistim and menopur
• blood test and ultrasounds 3-5 appointments in one week
• hcg injection
• retrieval
• start progesterone
• embryo transfer
• post retrieval visit
• blood test for pregnancy

So based on the sample calendar she put together for me, we are looking at receiving a BFP around April 2nd

It seems like so far away, but I’m sure it will go by fast…well I’m really hoping it does.
Dear Sara,

I praise God for you as you walk on this path. I do admit I'm not familiar with the tasks/deeds listed above, however I know how to count down to the April 2nd . I know I don't post often but I felt I had to say that I pray the Lord's goodness and mercy be right behind you as you embark on this phase.

In His Grip,
Faith xx

Thankyou Jesus for building such strength in Sarah & her equally important husband (hehe)
May you grant her the qualities she needs to see her through. Remind her daily how brave she is, and what an encourager she is in faith. Let others be drawn to her, as she continues being an inspiration.

Bless her womb ..
Bless her womb ...
Bless her womb ....

As i reflect on these powerful words, 2 things come to mind.

Firstly i ask for you to bless her womb so you are able to plant your miracle wonder within. Allow the IVF process to go smooth, her body to be relaxed, and it may not have worked so peacefully in the past but i pray right now that she will ENJOY making this baby. Enjoy the process, the entire way through. Until you grant her, her desire.

And secondly to bless the life that will be created in her womb. Bless it daily, so the little one will have no shadow of a doubt that you are her Saviour, from the first moment into life.

I would like to share with you just a recent revelation God has put on my heart.

Recently I realised I had been so troubled over matters that did not bring glory to God. Oh how we often overlook the littlest things that bring us our true happiness. God revealed his simplistic nature to me. Our inner happiness is his greatest joy. God reminded me of the story in the bible of Martha & Mary {Luke 10:39-42}

My husband and I only a year ago purchased a relatively large home to bring our family up in, it had everything we needed and more some. 5 bedroom, 3 bathroom, 3 living rooms, cinema room, lap pool, it goes on. A house for life sort of decision. Until recently we woke up and both realised, we are not bringing glory to God because our attention had drifted away from him. We had become so fixed on impressions concerning our lifestyle, both being perfectionists, that we overshadowed what really mattered… spending time together, and knowing possessions /THINGS will eventually fade away. Despite my partner in a well paying career who does not mind working extra long hours due to the demand of his job, we decided we want to simplify our lives in order to enjoy it.

We had been fixed for so long giving attention to conceiving and trying for a baby, that when we became pregnant with a miracle baby after 2+ yrs, we then refocused our attention somewhere else, our house. Let me encourage you girls wherever your focus, your heart follows. We have to be quite careful what enters our lives, and how much emphasis we give it. Whether is be yourselves trying to conceive, or arguing over conceiving, or finally being blessed with a baby and worrying and not trusting God in keeping it. Replenish your minds from ill thoughts and focuses, and REFOCUS your attention back to God. So we are able to give glory to him in everything.

The thought has never made me feel happier. I want to be like Mary in the bible, not Martha. And Jesus answered and said to her, 'Martha, Martha, you are worried and troubled about many things. But one thing is needed, and Mary has chosen that good part, which will not be taken from her' " (Luke 10:39-42)

We plan to profit and move from our current home after baby is born, buy a smaller modest home, close to my husband's work so he is able to be home earlier.


Simplifying life.

Those words are often referred to us as having to sacrifice something we love, something we enjoy. It is misconceived as depriving ourselves from luxuries, feeling less significant, and ultimately having less. That is somewhat of truth, to simplify life one must walk away, but what we're walking away from is less, of the things we thought we needed.

Too often we say we follow the simple man, that the very best things in life are free, but the moment we step back into our world, we continue exalting possessions that don't mean any more that they did yesterday. They hold no more value then the value we place over them. They do not define us, in contrast to many beliefs, they never have.

We should not be consumed of having larger items, a larger house, a larger mortgage. But to have only what we really need, when we need it. We should not spend our moments maintaing a life far greater then our capacity to enjoy them.

We should use our moments to notice our partner, remember the reasons why we married them, and not what divides us. We should appreciate our health for all it's achieved, and not replenish thoughts of when it has let us down. We should spend our lives never de-cluttering, because if we aren't using it, then we should give it away. We should have no attachment to things of this world, as they are all but temporary to our stay here on earth. Lastly let us remember..

People buy things they don't need, with money they don't have, to impress people they don't like. Make a decision today, to recycle your thoughts, renew your appreciation and simplify your life.

Oh my sweet Bec!

Thank you so much for thinking of me and for your prayers. It means the world to know I have such a wonderful friend that I can count on to encourage me and bring me and my family before the Lord in prayer.

The Prodigal Infertile Daughter-Based on Luke 15


Imagine that there was a Modern Day Infertility Version of the Holy Bible. Perhaps the story of the Prodigal Son would read something like this…

And Jesus said, “A man had two daughters. The younger of them said to her father, ‘Dad, I want my inheritance now instead of waiting until you die.” So he divided his wealth between them.

Not many days later, the younger daughter gathered everything together and ran away from home. She lived a wild lifestyle, didn’t honor God with her body, used every drug she could get her hands on, contracted various sexually transmitted diseases, and was totally irresponsible with every gift and blessing she’d ever been given.

The younger daughter ran into hard times, was unable to support herself and decided to go home to Daddy.

Her Dad was thrilled to see her coming, no matter the condition she was in. As she got closer, he could see her expanding belly, yet noticed no wedding ring on her finger. ‘I guess I’m not the daughter you dreamed I’d be,” she said. He wrapped his arms around her, wiped her tears and began to make plans for the biggest baby shower ever thrown to welcome his first grandchild!

The older daughter drove in from working at the family’s business. As she pulled in the driveway, she saw her Dad with a very pregnant, very ‘undeserving’ sister. She wouldn’t even get out of the car to approach her long lost sibling. Dad walked over and begged her to come embrace her sister.

“But Dad, for years now, I’ve worked in your business, I’ve balanced the books and stocked the shelves. I’ve never told you ‘no’ when you’ve asked me for overtime or asked me to work on holidays. I’ve done everything you’ve asked of me, yet I’ve not been blessed with a baby! My sister prostitutes herself and is granted the pregnancy that I’ve always wanted and you bless her with a shower that you expect me to attend? When will you throw a shower for me?”

As her tires squealed out of the driveway, the Father looked at his daughter and said, “All that I have is yours.”

Are you the older daughter? Perhaps you have watched countless ‘undeserving’ women conceive and bear children that they don’t want and don’t care for, and you’ve wondered why. Why does God allow others to conceive, yet withholds blessings from you? Has God run out of miracles just as your number was coming up?

When you see others conceive, yet your home remains baby-free, don’t let Satan convince you that God’s power is absent in your life. His blessing another person does not diminish His ability to bless you. Jesus Christ hasn’t run out of power, and His love for you is still as powerful and strong as it was when He hung on Calvary’s cross. He has blessings to bestow on you, no matter how He touches another’s life. Don’t let jealousy destroy you in your waiting.

Remember the words of the Father: “All I have is yours.”

-Beth Forbus

Miss a few days, miss a lot!

Sarah (GJ)- How exciting! Praying for a smooth and successful IVF journey for you and your husband!

Sarah (Traveler)- SO glad it wasn't an infection! Hope you're feeling much better.

VGibs - CONGRATS on your BFP! What a blessing! Praying for a very happy and healthy 40 weeks for you and baby!


I O'd at CD 13 this month, which puts me at 4 DPO today and technically testable right before we leave on the trip, AF due 1/2 way through. If I don't get a before we go, I guess I'll be packing the tests I picked up at Target the other day. On that subject, it was the first time I bought tests being excited instead of nervous.

Have any of you seen the movie "Facing the Giants"? If not, I urge you to. The sub-plot in that movie is one of infertility in a Christian couple. The husband gets a word of inspiration in that movie that I have been leaning on a lot recently.



I have been afraid to buy things, or put up the crib my sister gave us in the room we already have designated as a nursery. I've now thrown that out the window. I know God is going to send our rain. Now, I'm preparing our field.

Be blessed this weekend, Ladies!
