About dreams,I have something to share...not only ttc/pregnancy dreams but whatever bad dreams I see turns out to be true.May be it is God's way to warn me beforehand(?!!).
With my first pregnancy I saw a dream in which one of my preggo frnd was crying as she lost her pregnancy.Then I was unaware of my pregnancy and on very next morning I called my friend and she was doing fine.On the same day I came to know about my own pregnancy.I was a very innocent girl then.I never thought of a miscarriage but a miscarriage dream happened to be true for me.
Now with my 2nd pregnancy I was positive as it was a planned one and got mc dream on 5W3d.Then my scan on 7th week revealed I am having a blighted ovum and it stopped growing at 5W3d.
A few days back i had a dream I am updating my status in BnB as "mom of 3 angels"...God knows what is next now!I just hope it is my mind playing game and no truth is there in this.
I hope faithful is correct...may God protect us from all evils.

Personal Testimony--Emily


During a very difficult time, my father once told me something that gave me great comfort. He said “In life, you’re either entering, in the middle, or just coming out of a storm.” How true those words have been in my infertility journey.

A week or so had passed since getting the detrimental news that our third round of IVF had failed – another negative pregnancy test. One would think after three years of getting consistent negative test results, the sting would be numbed, but this was just as difficult to hear as the first. The blood tests, injections, ultrasounds, fertilized embryos, prayers, and expectations were for nothing.

After our blastocyst transfer and during the 9 day wait, I had stopped running to give my body the rest it needed and to appease my husband. That day, I decided it was time to get back into my routine, so I leashed up our two dogs and headed out on a beautiful October afternoon. The sky was overcast and had threatened to rain all morning, but that didn’t stop me from going a few miles away from the house. The further we ran, the better I felt. Just as we started to head back, a few drops of rain fell on my face. As I looked up at the massive gray clouds, my initial reaction was fear. What if these rain drops turned into a lightning storm and we had no shelter to protect us? For the record, I love to run in the rain. I’m talking about a nice vertical drizzle, but within minutes, this storm turned into an all-out-sideways-downpour. An amazing thing happened as we sprinted home. My fear subsided and as the rain began to wash over me, I felt God refreshing my spirit and renewing my hope. I couldn’t help but smile and laugh at how ridiculous we must have looked as the passing cars drove by. Thankfully we made it home safely, soaked to the bone.

Later that day, I was driving in my car and heard a song playing on the radio. It was Casting Crowns' “Praise You in This Storm”. I began to weep as I heard the lyrics “And I'll praise You in this storm, and I will lift my hands, for You are who You are, no matter where I am, and every tear I've cried, You hold in Your hand, You never left my side, and though my heart is torn, I will praise You in this storm.” I don’t believe in coincidences, I was meant to hear this song on that day. I am reminded by these lyrics that God is the constant and my infertility journey is the variable (“You are who You are, no matter where I am”.) This brings me great comfort knowing wherever this winding path takes me, God will always be.

My infertility “storm” is unpredictable and can be frightening and beautiful at the same time. There is no Doppler radar or satellite that can give me next week’s forecast. For now, the only certainty I cling to is God’s promise that nothing can separate us from His love. Romans 8:38-39 “For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, not anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

"Praise You In This Storm" by Casting Crowns

I was sure by now
God You would have reached down
And wiped our tears away
Stepped in and saved the day
But once again, I say "Amen", and it's still raining

As the thunder rolls
I barely hear Your whisper through the rain
"I'm with you"
And as Your mercy falls
I raise my hands and praise the God who gives
And takes away

And I'll praise You in this storm
And I will lift my hands
For You are who You are
No matter where I am
And every tear I've cried
You hold in Your hand
You never left my side
And though my heart is torn
I will praise You in this storm

I remember when
I stumbled in the wind
You heard my cry to you
And you raised me up again
My strength is almost gone
How can I carry on
If I can't find You

But as the thunder rolls
I barely hear You whisper through the rain
"I'm with you"
And as Your mercy falls
I raise my hands and praise the God who gives
And takes away

I lift my eyes unto the hills
Where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord
The Maker of Heaven and Earth

I sure hope the dream I had last night doesn't come true.

I had a dream that people were coming over to bring me gifts, as if I had a baby shower and in the living room I had a crib that was all set up and ready for the baby. But as people were putting gifts on the table and everyone one was so happy for me, In my mind I was thinking...how am I going to tell everyone the baby didn't make it

Hey Faithful,

Thanks. I don't think my dream was God speaking to me or the devil or anything. I just think it's my worries and general concerns I have about not conceiving and seeing other people pregnant and able to bear children...wondering when my "turn" to experience such joy will be? if it ever happens. And so my worries can get all twisted up in my dreams.

Thanks for caring and responding. Yes, I need to cast all my anxieties upon Jesus. He understands our pains in this journey and He'll uphold us in these times.

Your welcome absolutely i totally agree with you.. sometimes it's our own worries and concerns also. I just think sometimes we underestimate the power our fears have, and to even pray away the concerns we have on 'never being able to conceive' or 'scared of carrying a baby to term' weather it be ourselves or the enemy feeding the fears. It's much of a muchness right? It's neither healthy nor beneficial. Hun, me222, you WILL be a mum, and you will bare a child. Sometimes it's nice for someone to assure you of that, esp days when your frustrated..

I've had so many dreams of getting positive pregnancy test that I literally stopped caring they never came true. I actually had a dream where I went to the doc & they told me I was 6 months pregnant & I kept telling em it was impossible because I've had my periods. Hope that wouldn't come true I'd miss out on most of my pregnancy :/
