Pregnant With Our Only Embryo

Our journey to parenthood began in January 2021.  I had full confidence that I would be pregnant within 6 months, just like all my other friends. As months passed without a positive test, I began to worry that something was wrong. I kept my worries close to my heart while frustration, jealousy and sadness began to build month after month.

After finally sharing our struggle with a best friend, God opened the door to Moms in the Making when she gifted me Caroline’s book, In Due Time. Several months later, I was seated in a living room sharing our story with women who understood every feeling I had experienced over the past year of trying to grow our family. In October 2022, I attended my first Moms in the Making Conference and left that weekend believing God would exceed all expectations for our family.

Over time, my MITM community supported us through 5 unsuccessful IUI’s, a chemical pregnancy and embryo loss. My heart was healed and my faith was restored as I began to walk with God fully, focusing on fervent prayer, reading scripture and following guidance from the Holy Spirit.

God placed Psalms 27: 13-14 on my heart, and in September 2023, we received a positive pregnancy test! As our only viable embryo, we witnessed God’s miracle of life happening right before our eyes. And as we now prepare for the birth of our son, we continue to praise God daily for His answered prayer!

“I believe that I shall see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living!  Wait for the Lord; be strong, and let your heart take courage; yes, wait for the Lord!” Psalms 27: 13-14
