Not The News We Wanted To Have To Share

Really not sure how to share this news except just to say we found out today that we have miscarried again. We were blessed to be able to be a vessel to usher this precious soul into Heaven but ache that we will not get to know him or her on earth.

I went in to the Doctor because I was bleeding. After two ultrasounds it was determined that there was no heartbeat and baby stopped growing at 7 weeks.

To complicate matters a tad further my HCG (pregnancy hormone) levels are quite high~enough to cause some concern that there may be an ectopic pregnancy as well.  I also still am experiencing pregnancy symptoms which I should no longer really have.

So, the plan right now is to check my levels Friday morning to see if they are going down.  If they are, we should no longer need to be concerned about an ectopic. If they are increasing however, that is a cause for concern and I would then need to undergo laparoscopic surgery to look in the fallopian tubes.  In addition to this I have chosen to undergo a D & C as I really don't want to wait to miscarry on my own. Hopefully, that is the only thing we will need to worry about and it would then be done Friday afternoon sometime.

PLEASE pray that my numbers go down with Friday's test. 

We are sad, but as with the first miscarriage we still cling to the fact that God is sovereign and in complete control. From allowing conception to take place, to ushering our precious baby into His Kingdom. We will choose to become better, not bitter because of this. We will be a testimony in the darkest night and profess the power of the cross in our lives in the valleys and on the mountaintops.

We covet your prayers in the coming days and weeks and thank you for loving our family.
