Recent Events

You may have noticed I have been quiet on the blog-front lately. We have a lot going on....okay, the big news is we are expecting our 4th child. However, this has not been an easy road these past 7 weeks. We thought I had miscarried a couple of weeks ago, but found out that our baby was still doing well at 6 weeks and 2 days on 11/11/2010.

Then, yesterday (11/16/10), I started heavy bleeding again (don't worry, I won't get too graphic). Short story of a LONG 24 hours is, 2 hospital visits, 3 ultrasounds, and 1 OB consult later...the baby is still there and they can determine a faint heartbeat. Unfortunately, there are some signs that miscarriage may still be forthcoming.

The bottom line in all of this, is that we are a firm believers that God is the creator of all life, and the decision as to whether this child will join our family here on earth on at home in heaven is entirely in His hands. We are blessed to have a good Christian physician overseeing our care and many dear friends praying that God's will be done.

Stay tuned for further updates...God bless!

  1. As a mommy with 10 children here on earth and 6 "treasures in heaven", I can relate to the roller coaster ride you are on. I am blessed to know yet another mother who is willing to say, "...nevertheless, not as I will, but as Thou wilt." It's easier to say we will have all the babies the Lord wants us to have, but more difficult when He asks for them back. I said a prayer for you and your baby. May the Lord richly bless you and your family as you purpose to follow Him.
