IVF Hype Soundtrack



So I've heard these called "Infertility Soundtracks" and/or "IVF Soundtracks", but I'm going to deem this one my "IVF Hype Soundtrack" per the encouraging words of my friend and fellow IVF-er Wiselady.  I listen to this soundtrack when I'm pinning baby stuff, when I'm getting anxious about this summer's events, when I'm thinking about our beautiful baby Womacks, etc.  Listening to these songs gets me literally HYPED for what's to come.  Enjoy and add a few of them to your list too!

1) The Zombies-This Will Be Our Year - This one is sometimes on repeat for me.  It's like an anthem for me and Jonathan.  I can't wait to blast this bad boy once we take that positive pregnancy test!!

2) Christina Perri-A Thousand Years - I like to listen to this one and think of our babies.  "Heart beats fast" makes me think of that little heartbeat on our sonogram.  "I have loved you for a thousand years...I'll love you for a thousand more..."...haven't I??

3) Dave Matthews Band-You and Me - I have a funny feeling you might be hearing this one again in a special way in the near future! ;)  For now, I just LOVE the lyrics.  "You and me together...we can do anything...".  Me and Jonathan?  Yep...

4) Michael Buble-I Just Haven't Met You Yet - "And I promise you kid that I'll give so much more than I get...I just haven't met you yet!".  So true.  Hopefully God is preparing those future Womack babies to get some serious love when they get here.  "Baby your love is gonna change me!"

5) Gungor-Beautiful Things - A reminder that God still makes beautiful things with our epic messes.  And I have full faith that He will make some beautiful things (ie-babies) from me and Jonathan!

6) Christy Nockels-Waiting Here For You - "You are everything you've promised.  Your faithfulness is true.  We're desperate for Your presence..."  Need I say more?  I sang this song our last Sunday at UBC.  That particular line rang so true in my ears and was so heartfelt out of my mouth.  At that point He had answered our prayers for an acceptance to medical school.  And we were waiting for Him to keep keeping His promises.  And so we wait for Him now with just as great expectations for answered prayer...

7) Kari Jobe-You Are For Me - "I know that you are for me.  I know that you will never forsake me in my weaknesses...".  Oh this one.   My anthem!  There have been times that I have sung this over and over just trying to make myself believe it.  Now I sing it with newfound hope and confidence that I truly do know that He is FOR ME!

8) Jack Johnson-Better Together - This one makes me smile.  Listen to it...I'd put money on it putting a smile on your face too!  I love the words to this one...cuz it's ALWAYS better when me and Jonathan are together.  So looking forward to 12 weeks of Jonathan starting June 16th...

9) Mandy Mapes-Love Story - "Such incredible chances make for marvelous love..."
"This love is a reflection of more than just me and you..." I could really quote this whole stinkin' song.  But what a beautiful story of love ours has been.  And how much more beautiful is it about to become??

10) Mandisa-Overcomer - One of my best friends Angela told me once that this song made her think of me, my sister in law, and my mother in law.  Consequently it's one that I run to when I need a little inspiration to brush myself off and put myself back in the ring...

11) Bob Marley-Three Little Birds - This one is so uplifting.  "Don't worry about a thing because every little thing is gonna be alright...".  How could you feel down after listening to this one??

12) Christy Nockels-Already All I Need - "Asking where you are Lord, wondering where you've been, is like standing in a hurricane trying to find the wind..."  A good reminder that God is already everything I need, but that He is good and has a purpose for everything that He does...

13) The Lumineers-Ho Hey - "I belong with you, you belong with me, you're my sweetheart!"  This is a heart happy kind of song that makes me excited about my babies.  This is one I will sing to them!

14) Ellie Gould-Anything Could Happen - A good upbeat song that makes me want to dance.  Anything *could* happen right??

15) Jack Johnson-Banana Pancakes - This is another one of those that you can't possibly be anxious or sad after listening to.  It also makes me think of me and Jonathan and our lazy Saturday mornings sometimes.  Gives me warm fuzzies...

16) Mumford and Sons-I Will Wait - No soundtrack of mine is complete without a little Mumford action.  We're waiting!

17) Beach Boys-Wouldn't It Be Nice - Love this one from the Beach Boys.  It's a happy heart song too...

*addition* 18) Rod Stewart-Maggie May - Welp, y'all.  I added this one because it's one that will be sung to one little special Womack baby one day.  A silly little song I can imagine singing to my own little Maggie Womack in her pretty little girl bedroom someday...

*additon* 19) Hillsong-Oceans - A PERFECT suggestion from a sweet friend who played this on loop during her pregnancy and delivery of her precious baby.  So beautiful, calming, and reassuring...



So there you have it.  I will probably add to this list as we go along.  Do you have any good suggestions??  I am planning to put these on an iPod shuffle with a headphone splitter for me and Jonathan to listen to when we are in the many times of waiting throughout this IVF process.  Would love your input too!
