On Needles and Looking Back

After school today I had to stop by the district office to get a TB test. It's something we're required to do every four years. Anyway, one of the teachers ahead of me was complaining about needles, and another teacher replied that she didn't mind them. In fact, she said she was on her way to an acupuncture appointment. The nurse asked her what she was doing acupuncture for, and she said it was for fertility.

That brought back a lot of memories for me, and I found myself missing not only acupuncture sessions, but also our fertility treatments. Not that it's enjoyable to get up at four o'clock in the morning to make an appointment before the sun rises, but rather the excitement of the possibility the whole experience contains.

It was this month last year that we began our IVF cycle. What a difference a year can make. Hopefully this time next year we'll be in a better place.

We have the assurance of a better place in the end by His grace, which makes all the difference when trying to get through the difficult spaces in-between! Praying for you xoxo

For all of the awfulness of IVF treatments, there's a lot of hope that goes along with it. Here's to that hope and to wellness!

I am praying for you sweet friend. When you are in a valley (like you feel you are now) it is hard to appreciate the mountains. I assure you that you will one day soon find yourself at the top of it, and you will look down upon that valley and appreciate the moments you spent there. It's only in hindsight that you can "understand" those moments. Keep your head up girly! May brighter days come quickly for you and Michael! Until then, take comfort in so many people praying for you.
