We lost our baby this week. I miscarried. I bled so much as we drove to the ER that we stopped at another ER. At the intended (second) ER I had two pelvic exams (the first of which involved forceps and was horrendous), a couple IV’s, some morphine for the pain, and an immediate D&C surgery.
We were back home within 12 hours of me waking up in a pool of blood.
It was the single most awful and horrific day of our lives.
Yesterday we put all the brand new baby clothes that were supposed to go on our baby in 6 months in a cedar chest. My mom crocheted a tiny hat, mittens, a sweater…
We have hope that those clothes will go on another baby.
People have been praying for us, and sending words of support and encouragement. We can feel the prayers. The peace that makes no sense (aka “the peace that passes understanding”) is entering our hearts as we grieve. So I selfishly ask for your prayers to keep coming.
Encouragement straight to your inbox
I'd love to meet you over a picket fence in our backyards with a cup of coffee and a good story. We'd talk real life, real motherhood, and real encouragement.
Oh sweetie. I am so sorry for your loss and my prayers will not end for you. I can’t even imagine the pain you are both suffering right now and I pray that you will never have to experience it again in the future. My love you.
honey – in tears I lift you up right now. I know your hurt – I know your sadness, and I pray that God will give you that double portion soon while He heals your heart.
May the Lord wrap you in His tender love and catch all of those tears in His hands!
After my miscarriage I listened to Jars of Clay – God Will Lift Your Head – google the lyrics friend –
Just wanted you to know I’m thinking about you. I lost a baby this past November and was about 4 months along. I actually wrote about it on my blog. Talking about it helps. I know the pain you are going thru to an extent. I know how badly you wanted this pregnancy and my heart breaks for you and Jared. Praying the Lord wrap his arms around you and comfort you as you grieve.
My heart aches at reading this. Having miscarried before as well, I can tell you that you will grieve and mourn, but in the end your faith in the Lord will be strengthened. He will carry you through. As you said, you are already feeling His peace. After our experience, I was so thankful that I knew the Lord and that He had me in his hand. It made me feel so sorry for those who go through such loss but have no relationship with God and therefore no hope. Adding my prayers to the many on your behalf…
love you. standing in the gap for you right now. ((((hugs))))
I am crying right along with you… and lifting you up.
I just saw this and am so sorry! As someone with endometriosis and facing infertility I know how much of a roller coaster it is.
