Transfer Tomorrow

Of the 2 eggs retrieved, one was mature and the lab performed ICSI on it. It did fertilize, so we are scheduled to transfer 1 sweet little embryo tomorrow. We are calling "her" our little sweetheart. The other egg was not quite mature. The nurse mentioned they were "watching it" (I'm not sure if they are watching to see if it matures in culture or if they tried to fertilize it the traditional way but they really don't hold out hope for it to do anything).

Transfer is scheduled for 7:45 a.m. tomorrow with Dr. Scheiber. Please pray for our little sweetheart. God is "her" creator and He can bring her all the way through if He wills it. Let us hope and pray that the phrase, "It only takes one," applies to this case.

Yesterday was beyond nightmarish and it is difficult not to assign blame. I won't go into the details here because they are so raw and painful. Jason and I were talking earlier and we are choosing to walk forward and focus all our energy on praying for our little sweetheart. Pray for me in this, as it is a challenge.

Please pray with us. We are meditating on this verse:

"The LORD has heard my plea; the LORD will answer my prayer." (Psalm 6:9 OYB)

and this song is what's in my head (Your Hands by JJ Heller):

When my world is shaking
Heaven stands
When my heart is breaking
I never leave Your hands

Your hands
Your hands that shape the world
Are holding me, they hold me still
Your hands that shape the world
Are holding me, they hold me still

Thanks for praying for us. I know that we'll never be able to say thank you enough.


  1. Love, Love, LOVE that song and SO special to me too...

    Friend, I am beyond thrilled with your little sweetheart and cannot WAIT to hear how it goes tomorrow. "She" is being SO lifted in prayer right now, as are you all, and I am just so hopeful!!!

    I pray that the details of what happened lessen in the raw intensity, and I'm so sorry for whatever happened.
    Lots of love!

  2. I am praying fervently for you. I wanted to call today, but I sense you are not ready to talk. Please know that I am sending you all cyber-hugs and so much love and prayer. He is holding you in the palm of His hand, just as He is holding your "sweetheart" and the transfer tomorrow. Let His awesome grace pour out on you. Again, we are claiming His promises in victory!
    I love you!

  3. I am so glad to hear that your little sweetheart will be all snuggly in your belly tomorrow! I hope so much for you that she decides to stay awhile.

    I am praying for you...thankful that you see a way forward, hopeful that the pain of yesterday will ease, and rejoicing that your faith is strong.

  4. Praying that the transfer went well and that your little one holds on!
