Sometimes God answers a prayer that hasn't been spoken yet.




Talk about a scary moment that turned into a blessing.

I started bleeding last night.

And cramping.

I totally freaked.

I've never had this happen with either one of my pregnancies, and it just felt wrong. I calmly called my mom to let her know I would be calling the OB in the morning.

Then I broke down.

Then my 3 year old broke down too.

For some reason, I'm immensely attached to this baby. I know you would think that's to be expected, but you have to understand-this is the first pregnancy I HAVEN'T been stressed about. I'm actually excited.

With my first, I got pregnant right in the middle of a horrible fight with my husband. We hadn't talked to each other in days. We HATED each other.

My second child? I got pregnant in the middle of having PPD. Yeah.

This one? My life is pretty great. My husband and I are closer than ever, and I am just liking where we are as a family.

Thus, making this pregnancy a perfect moment for me.

So now you understand the panic that I had. After talking to my mom, she decided to take me to the ER to get checked.

They did a pelvic exam, took blood, urine samples, and did two different ultrasounds.

Then I got my results.

My body was attempting to have an abortion.

Not my words. It's actually on my discharge papers.

They found that I had two different infections going on in my body, although I had no symptoms. Something that wouldn't have been caught until I went to the OB after the holidays. 

One infection in particular, a bacterial one, causes the body to abort-or miscarriage- the baby. Thankfully, both infections can be treated, and I am on two different medications.

Also, both my hormone levels and what they saw on the ultrasounds suggests that everything is okay, but I have to go back to an OB in the morning to get the levels tested again. If they have doubled, than I should be in the clear.

Please pray for that. My nerves are a bit shot, but at the same time-I am so thankful that I felt the urgency to get checked out. Who knows what would have happened if I would have waited?

This is definitely one of those moments where God turned something that I thought was horrible-into a good thing. 

So now I am resting up, and trying not to do very much until I can get my final results.

I'll keep everyone posted. 

Thanks for the listening ears, ladies and gents.

I can't feel alone in this.
