Calling in the power of prayers

The dating scan did not go well today. Its not all lost, but its not looking that good either.

I am 7 weeks 5 days according to my calendar. The scan showed a development of 6 weeks or so (I didn't get the exact number of days). The heartbeat is very low at less than 80 bpm. Didn't meet my FS, but the nurses at the clinic have sent me for another ultrasound next week, to check the growth so that they can compare. At this stage, they aren't saying all hope is lost, but they didn't want to give me any hope either, and even talked to me about my options should this turn into a miscarriage....the word I NEVER thought I'd be associated with...

I was kind of hoping for the best, but was prepared for the worst for today, as I had absolutely no signs of pregnancy left since late last week (as in, slight boob pain, slight tiredness, few weird dreams, slightly more frequent trips to the loo, that were worrying me as as being too little, completely vanished!). But I thought it would be either no heartbeat, or it would be all good. I was never prepared to be in this limbo. This baby is keeping me on tenterhooks since the very start... I'm OK with that, as long as the little bub is OK. Oh, please be OK!

I'm asking you all to please, please, please pray for a miracle for this miracle baby this week, beautiful ladies!!


  1. I'm praying for you and the little hub and that everything will be okay. So, so sorry that you've been left in this limbo. Wishing you much strength and peace.xx

  2. Oh hun I can't imagine the thoughts and feelings you are going through. I am praying for you and remembering the following verses...

    "He will listen to the prayers of the destitute. He will not reject their pleas." ~Psalm 102:17

    "The Lord will keep you from all harm, he will watch over your life." ~Psalm 121:7

    "Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me." ~John 14:1

    "I will not die but live, and will proclaim what the Lord has done." ~Psalm 118:17
