Well, it’s official. We are miscarrying. I guess you’d call it impending fetal demise. We went to the doctor on Thursday. The fetal pole is smaller. We could see cardiac activity on the ultrasound, but could no longer measure a heartbeat because it was so slow. We have stopped all progesterones (life support for new life), and are waiting for things to progress naturally. I will see my regular OB/GYN on Tuesday and see how things are looking/progressing. Currently, my HCG is 18, 198. We will be watching for this level to decrease as well.
We are heartbroken.
It has been a long journey just to achieve pregnancy, and now this is lost as well. In my mind, I know there are reasons this happens. It is God and nature’s way of protecting us. In my mind, I know the positive is that we now know it is possible for me to achieve pregnancy. In my mind, I know that in the end, all will be well.
But, my heart hurts at the loss.
We ask for your continued prayers for peace.
I am not a poet or a lyricist, but these words have come from my heart in this time and in this space:
Rock Me, Rock Me
Holy Spirit, God Divine
Come and hold this hand of mine.
Rock me, rock me in your peace,
Until my soul can find relief.
Holy Spirit guide and friend,
With a love that never ends.
Rock me, rock me from above,
Until I feel your endless love.
Holy Spirit, Father God,
Welcomes children from earth’s sod.
Rock me, rock me in your might,
Until I feel you hold me tight.
Holy Spirit’s boundless love
Fill my soul from up above.
Rock me, rock me in your grace,
Until my heart has found it’s faith.
