Hey ya’ll! Happy Saturday! I know ya’ll are thinking- Raven NEVER posts on Saturday. This is true. BUT, I promise that I will always be obedient and post when I feel led to as well.
Today, I wanted to talk about resting while waiting. The wait can be one of the most nerve-wracking, anxiety building, stressful times in life. And I don’t just mean the wait to get a positive pregnancy test. I mean ALL of the waits. The wait for healing, the wait for transfer, the wait for a match from an agency, the wait for lab results, the wait for genetic testing, the wait for adoption to finalize, the wait for the doctor after you deliver a preemie, the wait for an appointment with a RE, the wait for your first ultrasound AFTER you get the BFP, the wait to hold your baby… there are MANY waits in this journey and they all seem to have an intense waiting period. There are so many things that run through our minds, so many thoughts, so many “what-ifs,” so many things that need to be figured out. How will we pay for this? How will we afford another cycle? What if we don’t pass the home study? What if we have poor egg quality? What if I don’t ovulate? What if …. (insert your question here)
Anxiety, can easily creep in during the wait and the fear it brings will take our eyes off of the one that gives us rest.
