In the middle of May, I adopted what I believed was simply a regular weekly ultrasound, however there were some substantial issues about the infant’s movements/activity.
Within an hour, they were prepping me for the really genuine possibility of a c-section that day. (Starting steroid shots, no eating/drinking, confessing me to the health center, and so on.)
I was by myself and it felt really surreal. So numerous things to process at one time. So numerous information to attempt to exercise. And a lot issue for our sweet infant.
This entire pregnancy has actually been a genuine test of faith and endurance for me. There have actually been numerous unanticipated bumps in the roadway. Many things I’ve never ever experienced (a lot bleeding and identifying, a lot more queasiness, low-lying placenta, the possibility of placenta previa, transverse infant, fibroids, and so on.).
Over and over once again, I’ve needed to stop and launch my desire for control and my requirement to have a strategy. It’s needed me to constantly open my hands and state, “God, help me to trust You and walk by faith — even though there is so much uncertainty for what the future holds.”
By the grace of God (and numerous responses to prayer!), infant began moving a lot more usually and after 24 hr of tracking + a lot more screening, I got to go house from the health center to keep the infant inside for a couple of more weeks. (My OB and professional think infant was simply in a truly deep sleep cycle throughout the preliminary ultrasound however we are keeping an eye on and checking really carefully to make certain infant continues to move/act usually and not in distress).
I don’t understand what the future holds for this pregnancy. Our objective is for me to make it to my scheduled induction at 39 weeks (simply 2 more weeks!). But I’m simply living one day, one week at a time today — looking for to maximize it, continuing to launch my desire for control to the One Who understands completion from the start.
We never ever understand what a day may hold, however I’m grateful to understand the One Who holds the entire world in His hands.
