Two Things I Didn't Expect to Hear

1. "It's a boy!"

2. "There's no heartbeat. I'm so sorry. The baby has passed away."

More later, friends. But for now please pray for us.

  1. I posted on fb but I just feel like I need to write here also. My heart breaks for you right now. Lean heavily on the Lord. He brought you to it, he will LEAD you through it. I don't know if you remember that I had a similar situation in the beginning of my pregnancy with Abigail. They couldn't find a heartbeat around 7 wks along and told me I basically had to wait until I had a miscarriage. Obviously they were wrong but I am just saying I know the pain you are feeling right now. I never thought I could love a 7 wk old blob so much until they said there was no heartbeat. I am giving you a cyber hug right now. ((((<3)))) I will be Praying that the Lord's arms of comfort will be felt very near while you grieve your loss.

  9. Oh, I am so sorry. I've heard of so many miscarriages lately. I know that doesn't help a thing. Ugh. It's so hard. I will be praying for the Lord to sustain you. I still get sideswiped by guilt every once in awhile...

  10. Oh, I didn't write that correctly. I get sideswiped by grief, not guilt. I'm so sorry. I still pray for your peace and comfort in the midst of the sorrow.
