God IS Listening!

Just a cool little story I wanted to share with you all today:

I got a phone call from Dr. S's nurse early this morning setting up our baseline u/s for Monday morning; but also saying that Dr. S wouldn't be able to see us since he would be out of the office that morning.  :-(  Bummer!  I went ahead and made the appointment; because Monday will be CD5, and I don't want to start stimming any later than that.  Still, I was super disappointed about it all.  I was really feeling hopeful about this cycle, and now we weren't even going to be able to talk to our real doctor!

As soon as I got off the phone, I felt really stressed.  I felt out of sorts; I felt anxious.  I knew I needed to release this stress - my body is going through enough each cycle, I don't need more junk on top of all of the pills and shots and blood draws!

So, I started to pray.  I prayed for a good 15-20 minutes straight just asking God to put a spark in Dr. S's mind about me, and that he'd pass some really good info onto the NP we'd be meeting instead of him on Monday.  I asked for peace and wisdom and knowledge for everyone involved.

About 5 minutes after I stopped praying, my phone rang again.  I saw that it was Dr. S's office again and thought, "Now this is weird...I just got off the phone with them.  What do they want now?"

It was J, Dr. S's nurse.  She said that Dr. S had just scheduled an insemination for Sunday morning and wanted to know if we'd rather come in then so we could actually talk to Dr. S himself and get on meds sooner.


I was sooooooo excited!  In a matter of minutes, God had answered my prayers to a much greater extent than I had even asked of him!  Wow!  I know it's just a little, every-day kind of miracle; but I was pretty impressed.  What an amazing and loving daddy-God I have!  This just proved to me today that he IS listening to my prayers, even the seemingly small and insignificant ones, and looking out for my best interest and hopes and desires.

I am just feeling so grateful right now!  AND, since our appointment is at 8 a.m. on Sunday, we'll still get to go to church at 10:45!  Woo hoo!  Amazing, amazing stuff! 

I hope you are feeling as loved as I am today,
