What a week!

Wow! This week six - count 'em SIX - bloggers that I follow posted their amazing and wonderful BFP news. Congratulations to Barren and Believing, Finding Joy in Every Journey, Life Happens When You're Making Other Plans, Loveliest Days, The Non-Housewife Wife, and Wanting, Waiting, Praying for a Miracle! (and....sorry if I missed any...there were almost too many to keep track of)

And then, my prayer partner on a message board I am a part of got a positive pregnancy test on IUI #2 with a post-wash count of 6 million (sound familiar?!). I was blown away!

With each announcement, each pee stick picture, and each amazing description of how they discovered the happy news I truly had tears of joy. So many of these ladies I have walked with for almost year...wow and praise the Lord!

Can I join the BFP bandwagon? :)

Mixed with those tears of joy, I do have to confess my own tears of longing. Hopeful longing, as my blogging friend A put it so well today. I think that streak of hopefulness led me to walk through Gymboree this afternoon.... *sigh.* But that just made the longing outweigh the hopefulness.

Lord, hear my prayers! Thank you that you give your children good things when they ask. I wait expectantly for your plan to unfold in my life.

What a wonderful post! I am hoping and praying for you Hillary! I have a feeling this could be your cycle. ;O) I am also longing and hoping for a BFP. We had a meeting with our RE yesterday and I think if we are not pregnant by January then we are going to start an IVF cycle. That makes me happy but somehow sad too.

Hope you're feeling well and thank you for keeping us updated on your journey!

Everyone always says "your turn is next..." and it gets old after awhile...but I firmly believe that if you continue to walk in faith that the plan for you will unfold in short order.

Keep the faith, and keep up the positive spirit that you have...and me, I will keep my fingers crossed for luck, my hands folded in prayer for you!

I've noticed lots of BFP too! It's crazy.

Tears of joy and longing are exactly what they are, I'm with you... I hope this will be your month to post that wonderful announcement too!

I am praying for a BFP for you friend. I am sure you can hardly wait. You are such a sweet person; thanks for the tag and the congrats.

It does seem like the IF blogging world is having a BFP hayday! I was thinking this very thought yesterday. I just started my blog last month and already NINE of the girls I was following have become pregnant. I'm just hoping the trend continues... for all of us :)
Also, thanks for the link! That's awesome and really sweet of you.
Just FYI ladies, though, the link is NOT secure so be careful typing in your name and address. It says it is TRUSTe certified, but there is no security attached to that actual URL (sorry, I'm an internet info safeguard junky. Just having a blog is risky to me).
I really appreciate the info though! :)

It's always so wonderful to hear of other people's BFP's. I'm praying we hear one from you in a couple weeks as well. :-D

Tabitha said...

Praise God, He has been answering prayers like crazy!! He is so good, and I continue to pray that He blesses you with a little one or two, SOON!!

Praying, praying, praying for you!

I have a good feeling for you this cycle!! Sounds like everything with the double IUI went well - this could be the one!

Rachel said...

Wow! You must be good luck! I am crossing my fingers for you. Everything went so well this cycle, this has to be it! Can't wait to hear about your BFP. I hope you don't mind, but I nominated your for an award. Check out my site.

Kelli said...

I'd like a ticket for the bandwagon, too, please! :)

Thinking of you and praying for you daily! xo

Just wanted to show a little Blogger love...I have been praying for you Hillary. May the Lord grant you the desires of your heart.

In Him,
Indy

P.S. - Melody made me do it! j/k =P

Rambler said...

I am really hoping for you to add your name to the roll call and help with the statistics of successful IUIs!

I hope the rest of this wait is amazingly quick for you and we hear something soon. :)

I'll have to read back on what exactly your medicated cycle consisted off since I think we're also thinking of a medicated IUI cycle next round.

MRS.B said...

SO hopeful for you! Can't wait to hear your good news!

Hope Endures said...

Praying for you, and that the BFP's keep coming for the rest of us!!

The Wife said...

Thanks so much for your well wishes. You are the sweetest! I'm hoping and praying that this cycle works for you and you get your BFP! Thanks again.
