@The LAKE with My Super Hero Mom...
Just before I went into the Hospital we had our second ultra sound which revealed that one of our precious babies heart beat had slowed down. He/She wasn't developing as well as the other two and the Dr. was concerned but said there was nothing we could do and only time would tell what would happen. We were of course sad and concerned but we trusted the Lord and prayed for a miracle and are so grateful for our family, church family, and friends that prayed along with us.
My precious sweet husband definitely should be awarded the greatest Dad/Husband award. He has read everything he can get his hands on and knows far more about being pregnant than I ever care to know. At every week he has told me what I can expect and possible side effects.
He read about mothers who got the same news yet went back to the Dr. and the baby was fine. Of course he was such a sweet encouragement to my heart every step of the way.
The Incredible Sad Part
After being in hospital for the week and then staying at the lake I had to go home for our next ultra sound. We knew this appointment was possible going to be a hard one but felt as if the Lord had prepared our hearts for either way.
I never realized how difficult it would be to love 3 babies growing inside of me and then get the news that one of those precious babies was no longer with us.
Our precious sweet pea went to heaven.
After many tears and some teary days that come and go we will always remember our 3rd baby. We are grateful for our 2 babies that are growing and are very healthy.
(This is our Baby that went to Heaven)
This Sweet song has always been a song that I love but now it means so much more to me.
I remember the words of David in 2 Samuel when he lost his son. After praying and fasting he gets up and says that his son will not come to him but he will go to his son some day.
What an incredible day it will be when we meet our 3rd baby in Heaven.
I have now been home for a week and a half. I am at 13 weeks and 3 days and I am feeling much better. I no longer have to use the Zofran pump because I am able to take medicine orally and be confident that I can keep it...if you know what I mean.
I have slowly been able to add more activity to my day and while I can't miss a dose of my medicine I am now able to go for a walk, do some house work, and I have been able to
go back to my little part time job of assisting my friend with computer work for a few hours a week.
In the last few months my diet has consisted of apple sauce, canned fruit, orange juice and capri suns. I am thankful to report that I my appetite is growing and I am finally able to eat more. Still very simple but definitely more substantial and I am no longer losing weight.
1. Please pray for our 2 precious babies growing inside me. Pray they would continue to grow and be healthy babies.
2. Please pray for my nausea to stop. Our doctor says that because I am gradually getting better when we cross over into the second trimester I might actually be able to start enjoying being pregnant.
But I have also heard of woman that are sick through their entire pregnancy.
3. Please pray for my sweet Anthony. While I am home eating crackers and canned fruit he is having to fend for himself. He is getting sick of eating sandwiches and eating out. It is still difficult to cook or even warm things up in the house because the smells still bother me.
Thank you So Much for your prayers!
I am excited to use this blog to document this amazing journey the Lord has us on and can't wait to share more news like the sex of the babies, how they are growing... How I am growing :)
