Ultrasound

My heart is so heavy as I write this. John and I went in for our ultrasound this morning but there was no baby to be seen. We are devastated. Thank you so much for praying for us this morning. It was my biggest fear that we wouldn't see a baby on the screen and it is almost impossible to believe that fear came true. I'm heartbroken.

I had another HCG blood draw done (awaiting results) and will again on Monday; hopefully we can get some more answers soon.

We welcome your continued prayers in our sorrow.

Update: HCG level came back at only 38 (down from 104 at my highest draw). After speaking to a nurse the problem was most likely chromosomal with the embryo (causing him/her to stop growing early on) although we cannot know for sure. Thankful to not be dealing with an ectopic pregnancy. We appreciate prayers for wisdom as we figure out how to move forward building our family.

    My heart is absolutely breaking for you and your family. I will never understand why God tests our faith so many times.

    Please reach out if there is anything that I can do for your family. You know where to find me :)

  22. The burden of Infertility is a tough one (understatement) to carry. My stomach dropped when I saw your instagram post. I am hurting alongside you. I have been the recipient of devastating news and it physically hurts my heart when I hear of someone else living that nightmare. It's a deep pain I do not wish on anyone. Praying for you to find the strength to live out His plan-- whatever that may be. So so SOOOO very sorry.

    My heart is breaking for you, as I know the devastation of that news, as I received it twice. But four was the lucky number for me and number four turned into a healthy baby boy. Don't give up yet! But take time to get over the shock.

    I also struggle with infertility and have been drawing strength from your blog. I have admired your faith and reliance on God during the darkest times.

    I had a similar appointment in January and know the pain. When I saw your blog post my heart started beating fast and my stomach dropped. I'm so terrible sorry. Will be praying for you and your family.
