5 Beautiful Babies....

Hey peeps! Hope you enjoyed the post from Sweetness last night. I was certainly not feeling up to doing anything. I was in so much pain, it was crazy! But today, the Lord has renewed my mind and body and I am feeling so much better!
So as Sweetness said in the blog post from last night, they were able to retrieve 7 eggs from me yesterday. The embryologist called today and told us that they were able to do ICSI (Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection) on all 7 eggs, and 5 fertilized!!! That's right, we now have 5 beautiful babies growing and dividing, waiting for their mamma to come get them. Things are still right on track for them to put 2 embryos back into me on Saturday, we will freeze the rest for a chance at becoming pregnant again in a couple of years.
You know, I know God performs miracles, but this was my week to see Him in all His Glory. He has made so many things line up, and I know with out a doubt He, and He alone, has been the one that has gotten us this far in our journey to parenthood. Even me messing up bad and forgetting the Lupron shot, He prevented me from ovulating saving my eggs. Yesterday under anesthesia, I stopped breathing (scary i know) and they had to bag me; but God alone protected me and the eggs. The doctor told us afterwards we were lucky they got any eggs, because I scared them so bad, they almost scrapped the whole procedure! But God had other plans, and He is working them out in His own special way! It is just so neat to see the hand of God at work in your own life!
While I know there is always a possibility of me not getting pregnant this time, I am completely trusting Him and His timing. But I do just feel it! I love this feeling I have today for my 5 precious babies growing right now. Such love and awe.......
Please continue to keep us in your prayers, and these little ones. Pray that they keep dividing, stay healthy and that we get a successful twin pregnancy this time. May the Lord's will be done in our lives. I am calm and peaceful, I trust my Lord for the outcome, good or bad, His Will is where I want to be!!!
Ending with a scripture-
"Don’t worry about anything: instead, pray for everything. Tell God what you need and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace which exceeds anything we can understand."
-Philippians 4:6
