Making Progress In The Journey

Well, we did it. On Wednesday morning we actually went through the IUI process for the first time. It was a very quick and fairly painless procedure that came accompanied with some very overwhelming feelings. We have finally done what we've talked about doing for over a year now. Wow! There is progress being made, slowly but surely.

On Monday night the hubs had to give me a shot in my belly. I didn't think either one of us were going to make it through that...but we did! Then Wednesday morning I wasn't sure if either one of us were going to make it through the procedure without bawling our eyes out...but we did. Now we have to wait two weeks and then I will go in for blood work to see where we're at. Sometimes I'm unsure if we can handle all of the crazy emotions that will come in the next two weeks...but I know we will.

20 months ago I would have never imagined that this is what we would be doing in our lives. I expected to be going crazy with a cute little 9-12 month old running around. But this if the life we have been given and I will be grateful for it...I will praise Him for it.

I am already seeing so many blessings coming from what we're going through. Two weeks ago Mr. Terry Rush decided to comment on this blog that I hadn't touched in 8 months. I immediately just knew that I needed to write about our journey that not many people knew we were going through. Since then three people I grew up with have read this and reached out to me by letting me know that they have gone through the same thing. They have all offered support to me that I wouldn't currently have otherwise. Everyone at my work also knows what we're going through right now. It's such a personal journey for me that it sometimes makes it hard to be so open about all of it, but I know I need to be. It can be difficult to think about all the people I'll have to tell if things don't go the way we're all hoping for, but that also means we have that many more people praying for us through every step of the way. This may be a difficult and, at times, emotionally draining journey, but it is one full of blessings if I'll just open my eyes to all of the possibilities.
