We have fertilisation!!!
We’re so happy to get this good news this morning. I had a strange kind of restless peace last night that fertilisation would happen. We had a real heart to heart with God, with all our doubts and fears and pain. And although it doesn’t make the uncertainty and pain any easier, I do feel like I’ve shifted slightly from victim to fighter in my spirit. We still have many worries and doubts, but I don’t know, God, if he’s there, is definitely big enough to handle them. And all he needs is one egg and one sperm.
So now we wait until tomorrow morning. Our appointment is at 10am, and so long as the embryo has grown and divided well, we’ll go ahead with embryo transfer. The transfer is just like having a smear test, so is quite quick and painless.
Then we have a two week wait before we can take a pregnancy test.
We were told at the beginning that those two weeks are the hardest part of the whole process. And now I see can see that they will be very tough.
If you’re the praying kind, we’d still greatly appreciate yours for us. We’ve been overwhelmed by your support and love in the last couple of days, and we’re so grateful for all of you.
Keep fighting little embryo.
