Winegar IVF Journey Round 2: Results Day & Emotions

A lot of raw feelings on this real live video (see bottom of this post) from our Instagram Live Stories. We had so many people praying for us we wanted to share things live to make sure we were being authentic and real because the feelings that come from infertility are real too and it's just hard. This is after embryo transfer, after 3 days of bed rest and 9 days of light activity. We go in for the blood Pregnancy Test.

The whole video is below but are some extra thoughts and things.

Part 1 | IVF Journey Blood Test

This was recorded live on Instagram on our way to the Dr office to get our blood pregnancy test from our recent 2nd Round of IVF. πŸ™ We wanted to document our journey this time around, somehow sharing makes it easier to handle. We will get results back this afternoon.
So grateful for the prayers and love! 😘

Some background: for our 2nd son we had gone through 3 failed IUIs before the positive news!
Since he was born 4.5yrs ago we have done 5 IUIs and 1 IVF with no success so this is our last try and going to see if this IVF works for our family. Trying to grow our family is so hard, but there’s always hope and so grateful for the Lord because He is always there for us and through Him we have been able to try things we otherwise wouldn’t have had the courage or strength to do.

Part 2 | IVF Journey Results

Our 2nd son, being super cute and there for strength and support, after all growing our family is a family thang! 

Part 3 | IVF Journey Results

“Jesus wept.” John 11:35
So we got the sad news that we are not pregnant again. 😒😫😭

And we are crying too! We know the Lord loves us and is sad for us too. How do we know? Well you know I needed some wise words.

“Of course; why not? Jesus wept at the grave of Lazarus; he wept over Jerusalem’s portending afflictions; and he wept when he came to the American continent and knelt with his people, and especially when “he took their little children, one by one, and blessed them, and prayed unto the Father for them.” 3 Ne. 17:21 see also 3 Ne. 17:22 John 11:35 Luke 19:41. [Marion D Hanks #LdSConf Oct 1992]

“Dear sisters, our Heavenly Father and our Savior, Jesus Christ, know us and love us. They know when we are in pain or suffering in any way. They do not say, “It’s OK that you’re in pain right now because soon everything is going to be all right...” They feel the depth of our suffering, and we can feel of Their love and compassion in our suffering.”
[Linda S Reeves #LDSconf Oct 2012]

We are comforted by your prayers, love, fasting, treats, calls, texts, messages, meals, treats (said it twice cause you know us!), Temple trips, and support! We have the best family & friends EVER, even people we don’t know have prayed for us. πŸ™ Thank you for teaching us how to be the Lord’s hands here on the Earth, how to love others like Christ, how to minister. We have felt the Lord’s love through E A C H - O N E of you and continue to. 😘 Your ability to be compassionate and share your love with us is humbling, to say the least. We love you and appreciate you mourning with us. 😘 I’m sorry we didn’t get to share good news.

Side note: There were 3 other mommas in the same Dr. Andrew’s office getting news today. They couldn’t tell me the news about them of course, however, I sure pray and hope they each got awesome news, because somehow knowing someone else got great news will make our news easier to bear. πŸ™πŸ˜˜ Not because I would think they are preferred or better or anything like that but because I wouldn’t wish this pain on anyone, ever. I wish all who desire children to the point of IUI or IVF to have as many as they possibly can! (Even though I may not be able to be around prego mommas for a little bit πŸ˜‰... you know I’ll need some time.)

Joshua 1:9 “Be strong πŸ’ͺ and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.”

Today I will “goest” to my closet and bag of chocolate. πŸ˜‰ Love you all! 😘
