Well friends, on Wednesday I went in for a fetal heart check and they couldn't find it on the doppler. On Thursday morning we had an ultrasound which confirmed that our baby had passed away.
If you think of it, pray for me today. I'm having a D&C at noon because the doctor was afraid that because I was so far along that I might hemorrhage and need to go to the ER if I miscarried naturally. I've never had surgery, so I'm a bit nervous. I'd appreciate your prayers for me and Brian today. We are going to be doing a good amount of tests after this is over, as the doctor said that it isn't common to have 2 late miscarriage (right around the same time), especially considering that we knew that this baby was healthy with a strong heartbeat only a couple of weeks ago.
It's been a tough week. We are heartbroken, but not without hope.
"Blessed be the name of the Lord,
blessed be your glorious name...
You give and take away,
but my heart will choose to say
Blessed be your name! "
-Matt Redman (and Job)
