My Angel...

If you are a regular follower of my blog, you probably knew that Michael and I were expecting a baby in August. As of last Tuesday, I was 12 weeks pregnant and feeling great! I had no complications, very few days of sickness, and I was looking forward to seeing the changes in my ever-growing belly. Unfortunately, on Thursday, our lives were turned upside down.

Michael and I went to the doctor on Thursday morning for our regular pre-natal check up. We went through the normal things you do there and headed to the ultrasound room. I had a terrible knot in my stomach and I had a feeling something wasn't right. As soon as the doctor started the ultrasound, I knew my feelings were correct. The baby had no heartbeat and measured to be about 7 weeks. My heart completely sunk, as I knew my Angel had gone to Heaven.

My days are really tough and my nights are even tougher. Often times I find comfort in knowing that my Granny Lou is spending her days rocking my sweet baby, until I'm there to take her place! God is good and I know eventually I'll see his blessings in this tough situation! Thankfully, I have another little Angel keeping me pretty busy and my mind (somewhat) off of things!

Thanks so much for listening and please keep us in your prayers!

So sorry to hear this. Praying for you. We are also expecting in August and found out a few weeks ago that we lost one of our twins at 7 1/2 weeks. :( So far our other baby is doing great but I am constantly worried. I hit the 12 week mark this week.

I am sorry, Anna. I had a miscarriage in September 09 at around 12 weeks and then this November, my daughter Ryan ELizabeth was born at 18 weeks. It's a horrible, sad feeling and my heart hurts for those who have to feel this kind of pain.
I will be thinking and praying for you.

Praying for you during this difficult time. Chris and I lost our first baby, and I know it is such a hard path to walk.

It is hard to go through the pain of losing a child. My prayers go out to you and your family for the loss.

In my beliefs, the shell is created before the vessel enters it to travel into our world. If the shell meets any trouble, the work is discontinued to allow another shell to be built. Better to destroy the vehicle than have your baby be trapped in a defective body for their whole life. I believe your baby is still waiting for your to produce a healthy shell as you have done twice before.

May God bless your future endeavors with healthy children.

With Love,
The Noble Shaman
