Trusting in Jesus

Thank you all for your prayers and sweet comments. Your prayers helped me so much yesterday. I am learning to take one day at a time and leave everything in God's hands. Jesus, I trust in thee!

I have never experienced anything like what I did in the last few days. So much anxiety and stress!!! I had some red bleeding last Sunday and I felt so terrible. I cried during the entire Mass and begged God for a miracle. I went in for my second Beta HCG draw on Monday and was amazed to hear from Dr. KK's office that the levels looked good. The bleeding subsided for a while but on Wednesday, I saw fresh blood again. It was there every time I wiped and so I knew something was not right. Thankfully, I was able to get an appt for Thursday afternoon with my local Napro doctor.

Yesterday as we waited for the ultrasound with fear and anxiety, I never dreamed that we would get to see anything as it was very early. By God's grace, we were able to see a gestational sac and yolk sac snuggled in the uterus. It was such a huge relief to know that it was not an ectopic. My cervix looked swollen and I am on Lovenox shots (blood thinner). That was probably the reason for the bleeding. I feel so much better after the ultrasound but I am still seeing blood tinged mucus. Praying and hoping that it goes away. The nurse gave me a shot of 5000 units of HCG yesterday. I have been contuning 200mg PIO shots twice a week. We will going in for another ultrasound next week. Meanwhile, I am afraid to hope. We feel so unworthy for this gift. It is the first time we have got to see a gestational sac on ultrasound. I am so thankful but I am keeping my heart guarded. God's will be done.

We have begun a 30 day Novena to St. Joseph as recommended by our Priest. We were able to see him yesterday after the ultrasound and he gave me a special blessing and prayed for the baby in my womb.

  1. Praying the bleeding stops, the numbers keep going up and that you can be assured your baby is growing.

  2. It brings me so much joy to hear this news. Continued prayers for you, your husband, and your little one.

  3. So glad that you had a good ultrasound! If it helps at all, when I was working with Dr. KK, I had several bouts of red bleeding during the first trimester. It was SO hard. But each ultrasound and test showed a growing baby. The nurse thought it may have to do with hormone levels, particularly progesterone. The first trimester is so stressful when all you have experienced is loss. I will be praying hard for you and your little miracle.

  4. So, so, so happy for you! I will pray for you and baby!

  5. My prayers continue as your little one grows and develops! The bleeding is scary, but I'm so happy that everything else is ok and you have a wonderful team of doctors!
