Lookie, lookie...

Lookie what I just bought today...

Isn't he just adorable!!! When I saw this little guy in Wal-Mart I fell in love & decided that I am going to buy him in faith that we will have a baby!!! It reminds me of something I read over on Pearls & Grace:

Something that helped to stretch my faith was to purchase those diapers and those sweet, little baby things. I have often encouraged friends and readers to do the very same thing and even place those diapers in the middle of the kitchen table like a centerpiece. I encouraged them to just thank God for the baby that is on it's way with each meal~ with each time they sit at the table. Just thank Him in advance for the sound of a baby in their house, for all the diapers they will have to change and for the sweetest and tiniest loads of laundry they will have to wash.
Thank you, Lord. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for blessing me with the baby I know I will have & for carrying me through the toughest times as I wait. Thank you so much for everything; for all You do!

Okay, one last "lookie"...

<--I was looking for a cute little emoticon to express love & found this... isn't it perfect, considering the circumstances!

Laprascopy Update

Wow! I never realized just what a major surgery that would be (especially since I honestly thought this was going to be more exploratory than anything (I thought they wouldn't find anything wrong) but as usual, I was I wrong ). I'm so much better today than I was yesterday though. Yesterday I felt like I had been run over by a truck!

First off, yay that the procedure got bumped up from 11:30 am to 9 am b/c of a cancellation ahead of me! Actually, I think God knew he'd need extra time on me or something. I'm not sure how long the procedure actually took but Mike said they wheeled me away at about 9:30 & the dr didn't come back to talk to him till 11:30 & then it was 3 pm before we got to go home so all in all, a very long day. *sigh* I call Monday to make a follow up appointment in approximately 2 weeks so be on the lookout for another update then!

So apparently it was a MESS in there & according to Mike the first thing out of Dr S's mouth was how he didn't know how in the world I got pregnant last year & how it was a miracle that we did get pregnant considering what he found during my lap. My ovary & tube were attached to my abdominal wall so he got to work & detached them & put them back where they belong. Woo-hoo! But I'm still not sure if it really helped in terms of "was this the reason I've been having such a hard time getting pregnant" since I know he feels that my ovary is just kaput. He never mentioned to Mike that this lap might help us get pregnant... he only said that he didn't know if we could get pregnant but I know I can get pregnant with God's help... I did before with my ovary in such a difficult place. Go God!

Now for the TMI/possibly gross part... the pictures! But be forewarned: (though honestly I think it's pretty cool--that's why I'm sharing )

Oh & something else interesting... I haven't heard anything embryo donation from Resolve in a loooooooooooong time (apparently about a month) & guess what they posted yesterday... the day of my lap!? Another embryo donation video....Multiple Embryo Donations....& on such an important day in my trying to conceive journey too. I just wanted to document it but for now we are moving forward with meds unless the Lord guides us otherwise. After meds, I honestly don't know what we'll do since we're waiting on God's wisdom. We'll just have to wait & see what the Lord has in store, I guess! Regardless though, I know He's carrying us through this & preparing us for great things!!!
