Fertility Update

We will hit our one year mark in a few weeks.
I have not had a period since November.
Three negative pregnancy tests.
One appointment made with the infertility specialist.
Countless blood tests.

The infertility specialist will inject me with progesterone to jump start my period, then I'll have a few tests done to see what my hormone levels look like throughout my period. I'm assuming they'll test Matthew too?

A few weeks ago I won an instagram giveaway...and got a baby shirt haha! It was one of those loop giveaways where there are multiple shops and multiple winners so you don't really know what you're going to get. I figured if I won a baby item I would keep it if I REALLY loved it, but otherwise just give it away at a baby shower.


I REALLY love it.
It's been sitting on my table like a perfect little beacon of hope, and it seems kind of silly (because I know it's only referencing a scripture) but I love that Matthew's name is printed right there in the middle.

The scripture is printed on the back:
Matthew 5:14-16 "Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot hide. Neither do men light a candle and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all who are in the house. Let your light go shine before men that they may see your works and glorify your Father which is in Heaven."

Oh Laynah...I'm praying so hard for you guys! God's timing is so perfect. You are going to be the best Mommy some day.

I didn't know that referenced a scripture, though it makes sense now that we had to sing it in school, lol. it's not silly at all, and it is a super cute shirt.

I am so sorry you are going through this - fingers and toes are crossed that everything works out for you soon xx

Aww Laynah :( I'm so sorry that the process has been so long and hard for you. Here's hoping you get some answers soon, and hoping even more that they're good answers. Love you girl.

I'm so sorry you are having to go through this. I just started the same journey you are embarking on a few weeks ago. I've been going in twice a week for monitoring and blood work. It's a hard subject to talk about, so I'm here if you ever need an ear to vent to. I'm thinking about you and praying you get your joyous news soon!

So sweet and such a great reminder. Praying for you, sweet friend. I hope all your questions are answered soon. xx

Good luck! Hope you can find some answers! If they don't suggest testing your husband you should definitely ask, it's a really simple way to potentially rule him out! Keep us posted!

Thank you for writing about this. I'm not going through this, but I know many people who are really struggling with the same thing. Thanks for being a good example, and for finding hope in trials.

I hope that you are able to get some answers and soon. I can only imagine how difficult that is to go through. Good luck ♥

I have only heard from others how much of an emotional roller coaster it is to go through infertility treatments! Wishing you the very best in your shared experience together, I'm sure it is very trying- I hope you're taking a lot of refuge in each other xoxo

I hope all goes well! Thank you for writing about such a personal topic. It takes courage, and will no doubt bless and inspire others who have similar struggles. I have no experience with infertility treatments, but I do understand how it feels to be told that you won't be able to have children, and I also understand what it's like to be poked, prodded, medicated, tested and injected on a regular basis. Know that my heart goes out to you, and I am routing for you.

Wishing you all the best girlie!! Cute shirt and one day I pray that just like my sister who battled infertility, you will have a sweet babe to wear that beautiful shirt.

Great scripture as well!
