Weekend highlights

On Saturday night DH & I went to a film at a film festival. We went with his cousin and her fiance who knew the producer/ writer of the film and got us in. I was prepared for something "artsy" that would either be really dark or really offensive, but fortunately it was actually an interesting and enjoyable movie.

Oh, and we saw Hila.ry D.uff in person. Not that I'm a huge fan (I think I'm too old to be!), but it's still pretty neat to say. She stood in the front of the theater and was about 5 rows away from us. :)

On Sunday we had dinner with a couple in our church who are elders. Their middle son is 16 and in DH's small group. We knew they had experienced infertility and have received prayer from them at church, but we didn't know their story. Fortunately, the topic came up right away and we received tremendous support, understanding, and encouragement. They tried to conceive for 5 years and had 3 miscarriages in that time (all late in the 1st tri) before conceiving their first born. They had their own funny stories about shots, doctors, and procedures. They even offered to fast with us one night a week and said they are praying continuously for us! I am so thankful for the tremendous support we have received.

No new pregnancy announcements last weekend. Whew. :)

It sounds like you are surrounded by love and support. What a wonderful feeling, and I'm sure it's a testament to the kind of people that you and your husband are.

What a fun weekend! That had to be fun, not knowing what you were going to see though. I love seeing movies like that, with no expectations.

That's really nice to have people in your life who 'get it' and have been through it and gone on to the other side.

Sounds like a great weekend. And how wonderful that you have such a great support system at your church.

I had to laugh at your last sentence about no new pregnancy announcements. "Normal" people wouldn't understand the relief in that, would they?

Sounds like a great support system! Glad you enjoyed your weekend! :)
