One more day...

Well, I've been laid up on the couch (or in bed) since Sunday. My back is feeling it. I'm feeling....well, I feel extremely bloated. Sorry to use that word. There is nothing lady-like about the word, bloated. I know this. There just isn't a better word to describe how I feel. Puffy just doesn't do it. My abdomen looks GINORMOUS to me. I couldn't suck in my tummy if I tried. Experiencing lots of pressure, as well. I spoke with one one of my friends on the phone, last night. She assured me, this is normal. She should know. She just finished her first IVF and it worked. On top of that...she's pregnant with twins!! She called me last night and told me the wonderful news! :)

I spoke with the clinic today. Our two embryos didn't make it to freeze. It always makes me a little sad when they don't make it. It doesn't affect our feelings towards this cycle though...we're still trusting and believing God for our little miracle(s)! :)

I pray you're all having a blessed week.

Love to all,
Jill

Sorry to read about the two embryos, but hoping that the bloat is a sign of good things to come. (How backwards is that - bloat = good?) {{hugs}}

I'm soooo sorry your 2 embryos didn't make it. I know it's in God's hands, but no matter what, it's still hard. Thinking of you!

Thank you so much for taking the time when you're not feeling the best to leave such a sweet comment! I hope you are feeling better and a bit less bloated soon - but I hope that abdomen continues to grow for...let's say....about 9 more months? Still keeping you in my thoughts! I think while you're laid up for one more day you should buy a fantastic pair of shoes or a purse online :-)

Hi Jill - I'm thinking of you. I've been praying and praying that this is it! Stay focused and we'll know something soon!

I am believing this cycle will work too! Sorry about the other two.

Joannah said...

You're right, there is no lady-like way to describe that feeling. I hope it goes away soon.

I'm sorry about your embryos. God is still at work in all this.

Love you and I pray you enjoy your weekend!!!

Praying for your babies to be sticky all over!!! Praying you will be feeling better (or worse, i.e. morning sickness) soon.

I have become a stalker. I check more than once a day to see if you have updated or shared any more information. It is safe to say I am now obsessed with your journey (in a good way, if that is possible?)

Kim said...

You know, you are killing me!!! I can't wait for the good news!! btw - Patience has never been my thing!

Annie said...

I have been praying hard for you, EVERY time God brings you to my mind! I can't wait to see what He has planned for you!

Heather said...

I am totally praying and believing for this round!!! Take it easy and spoil yourself to whatever you want...you deserve it!
