Skip to comments.Prayer Request for my unborn baby [update at #198]
Posted on 05/16/2007 8:52:46 PM PDT by inflorida
I have been a freerepublic member for a long time and usually lurk but tonight I find myself in need of your prayers for my unborn son.
During a routine ultrasound at 20 weeks gestation, it appears my little boy's stomach is on his right side rather than his left. The doctor could not give us any more information and is having us see a doctor at the hospital where they have more high tech equipment.
Please pray for this little baby, that all will be well. I have no doubt in the power of prayer. Thank you
I will pray. This winter we went through the loss of my friend’s tiny daughter who was fraught with medical problems in the womb and only lived a day. It is so very sad and yet her life, what she had, was meaningful. She WAS. She existed. She was named and loved and cherished and buried and mourned. Your son’s life, if it has to be short, will be a meaningful life. He will be loved. I am so glad he has a Mama like you. May G-d protect you all.
I heard a very religious rabbi answer the question, “Why do babies sometimes die?” His answer was that everyone has work to do down here on earth. Some of us live long — we have a LOT we have to do. But some of us are so perfect we only have a very very little to do on earth. I like that. Babies are all so perfect anyway, and some are so close to being angels that they just can’t stay long.
It breaks my hear that you are in this situation. It is not for us to understand. I pray that you all have strength to get through what needs to happen.
More prayers have been sent up for you, and for your unborn son.
I’m trying very hard to come up with more to say than I’m so incredibly sorry for what you are going through, but I just can’t. I truly pray for God to grant you comfort, peace & strength to get through this.
God bless you, inflorida....
I remember you and have continued in prayer for you and your baby. I am so sorry - those words seem so unfit for your situation...so lacking. Because I am given the opportunity to pray, I will; it is the love available to me to offer you in this situation. Please think of us as standing with you, gathered around you, being here to weep with you and seek the Face of God.
Gee whiz, it’s only been 5 years since my wife had our last ultrasound, I had nearly forgotten how nerveracking that can be.
Prayers for you and your little one; that baby is born happy and healthy and the it’s parents are spared from the “more than the usual” amount of anxiety that can come at this time of life.
Continued prayers. We’ll be looking for updates.
OMDear gal.....I gave birth to a dead child 28 years ago.
I gave up my Life to care for him an as God is my witness we have been conjoined.
I should probably FReep Mail you
but I think all us Living for Christ Catholics/Prods need to hear this.
Take it to term and if you only have a few days...get that boy baptized and hold him so close that it will hurt you and when if the time comes you can’t have him here let your heart break, get up when you are well and procreate again.
I have had my heart crushed 28 years later with my good son and now he knowing his years are slowing wants to Marry and have kids.
I did a parody on this.
However you are with this still thriving boy in your uterus.
Let’s just wait and see.
If he needs surgery go for it the other option is nill.
Tell your beloved husban you are going to do what God leads you to do and my friend we will fervently pray regardless of the out come you have support.
Get ahold of Brads Gramma.
Oh Darn...I see ya’ll have been busy here.
I called on you folks.
But I did not read the posts.
My heart is so deflated dealing with KV n stuff but I see this gal and like the Cowboy we all came to love want to wrap her with Love from the good Lord.
Logan is beyond cool but we need a Holy intervention right now and however God aka Jesus our Christ sees fit this woman need love and support...
Any one in her area God Bless this woman with wisdom and care.
I feel you Dawg.
28 yrs and trying to keep him another 20.
Long story, broken hearts are only for God to mend.
We as humans can’t we just can’t.
Yo EV anyone can sprinkle that sweet boy at birth with the water.
Baptize him asap....you know we think we KNOW it all then God turns the rubic cube.
I am Praying for God to give this boy enough time that Mom gets to love and hold him we all are Praying.
Do you think when we go home God will have a section for us Freepers? I hope so it will be Joy.
Now you can set up a thread on this buddy.
I say name him anything but Made In China.
I have to get on shift work and then I get to nap a bit.
Please bump this up and if we have it moved to the Miracle Room of TT please add me to the list.
Lord Have Mercy, Christ have Mercy.
I come to my sweet saviour and ask Hold this Mother and care for her and grant us that are guilty of being human without you as our vessel to give this woman her baby boy. Guide the Docs and let your Will be done...please in all Holy reverance Lord let her smell her boy...we lift this up in Your Holy Name Jesus...BTW Thank you for holding me too...I want down now and I want to walk in the cool firm sand....I think I can
I Love You Lord...hear all these Prayers we lift them up to you.
Thank you for your update. Prayers sent. I cannot imagine how difficult this is for you and your husband.
Prayers going up!
May God Bless you both. I will continue to pray for you both. Prayers up.
Prayers for your precious baby going up.
Absolultely! Prayers ongoing. It sounds as if you have the inner strength to deal with this well. Note, I did not say easily as it never is. I liken times such as this as to riding in the wide open ocean, there will be calms and there will be rough waves, I concentrated on treading water until the rough waves subsided and tried to make all long term decisions during the calmer periods. I truly pray you have the most favorble outcome possible.
Praying for you and your husband, and your precious baby. God bless each of you and keep you in His providential care.
I’m very sad to hear this. I had been praying that you would simply have the “mirror imaged” baby as one poeter had commented. Continued prayers for you and your husband and your baby. May the Holy Spirit guide and comfort you.
