Joy and happiness! We just found out that we’re on the nest. If you’re a praying type of person, we could sure use all the prayers we can get. This is our 7th baby: three here, three in Heaven. Our most recent miscarriage was in February, and this little one has really taken us by joyful surprise.
I’m five weeks today, and yes, while it’s extremely early to announce, we are choosing to err on the side of caution: the more prayer, the better.
Medicine is good, though, so I will be calling the nurses at the Pope Paul VI Institute in Omaha to see if there’s anything that can be done in the here and now to see if I have either an estrogen or progesterone problem that is causing all of the miscarriages. PPVI is a wonderful, medically/technologically advanced, totally prolife institute. They’re making real progress and giving women real answers to fertility problems. You should check them out if you’re having problems that need more help that you can find with your regular doctor (phone & email consults are free—you can’t beat that).
Thank you for your prayers–may you prosper in the Lord! : )
