If I had not had a miscarriage a few months ago we would be finding out what Baby Cox#2 was going to be around this time-end of September. I have several friends are due the same week I was due so I'm reminded of that when I hear about their big ultrasounds coming up. It such an exciting time for them and me. I love hearing what each of them are having. God is so GOOD to be blessing all these wonderful couple's and families with new lives.

We don't have gender ultrasounds to go to, but trust me I've had my fare share of ultrasounds lately. My body finally decided to get back on track so we could start another round of fertility meds. I had a visit this morning and things seem to be going well. I will return back to clinic in the morning for one last ultrasound this round.

I have a couple prayer requests if you don't mind lifting Jonathan and I up in prayer-

Please pray that my follicles continue to mature over night. I have one that we know is already at maturity and hoping that at least 1 of 2 more can make it.

Please also pray that my uterine lining thickens up a little over night. Right now it's at 6mm and ideally they would like to see it at 8mm. Pregnancy can be achieved with a 6, but we would still like to see it thicken just a little more.

I guess I should also ask that you continue to ask for strength for both Jonathan and I. These treatments can be so stressful at times- physically, emotionally ( I broke down paying my bill this morning), and financially.

My peace I give to you, not as the world gives, do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. John 14:27

I'll be back with a Baylor in the next day or so! He is keeping us busy and on our toes and we love every minute of it!!

Praying that the Lord strengthens your body to prepare you for pregnancy. Praying for His peace & mercy.

I know exactly what you're going through right now...the anxiety, anticipation, nerves, emotions. You feel like some kind of science experiment with all the blood draws and ultrasounds. I swear I lost all my modesty while going through that. :) If it's the Lord's will, I pray that everything that has to will fall into place these next couple of days and that you get that positive test in about 2 weeks!
