We are still waiting for our upcoming pregnancy test later this week and praying we will finally get to hear that we’re pregnant!!! Until then though, we’re just waiting and rotting.
I have not really had any “pregnancy” symptoms yet, but I feel like it’s still incredibly early. I did wake up around 4:30 this am with mild abdominal cramping. (Ladies, it feels just like those PMS cramps.) They have not stopped despite 2 rounds of Tylenol. Of course I was worried so I immediately called the doctor’s office once they opened. The sweet nurse assured me that the cramping is “normal” and likely due to “implantation.” I am praying that is it, because “implantation” means that embryo is making it’s home in there and settling in. Only time will tell….
Lord, I know it’s weird to be grateful for pain, but I thank you for this mild pain I am experiencing today. I ask that you are in fact preparing my womb for this baby to begin growing and that he/she is actually growing and healthy. I thank you for allowing me to travel along this infertility journey because I know it will make me even more grateful for this blessing in the end. Lord, I ask that you continue to keep all my immediate and extended family healthy so that this baby will be able to be loved on by these amazing people. I ask these things in Jesus name. Amen.
Today’s scripture…Romans 12:12
Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.
