Wait and see...

I spoke with the IVF nurse, Debby, and she said that she hasn't seen many cases like this that turned OK but she has definitely seen them. She told me not to get discouraged or stress - she said that is the worst thing right now...I just half laughed and she said, "I know it is easy for me to say that on my side of the fence". Agreed. I know she means well.

I asked what "slow progressing" means and she said the embryo POSSIBLY implanted late thus throwing off my "timing". She couldn't give me any stats or %'s and said it was a wait and see game...So, we shall wait and see.

On a lighter note...Monica, my sister-in-law, sent me an encouraging text and said it really could be taking after his/her dad! Anyone who knows Matt...knows Matt does NOT have an internal clock and has no concept of time. Let's pray this is the case...however, if we are blessed enough to have this pregnancy progress...you can bet your bottom dollar I will do EVERYTHING I can to help this child understand that being late and/or slow is UNACCEPTABLE!

Lisa,

If anything has been confirmed to me over the last few weeks, it's that prayer works and God is miraculous and the Great Physician. Look what He's done for my dad. We will continue to pray and lift this little life up to the One who has total control over everything.

Love you!
Susan

Man . . does the anxiety ever stop?? Lisa, I can't imagine what you must be going through but those numbers are so high . . I just feel like it did implant late. I definitely think next week should show that . . but praying God's hand on you and your little baby. Remember, drink lots of water and sleep! Try to enjoy your pregnancy!
