Praying for GOOD news tomorrow

Well, tomorrow is a big day. We have an ultrasound tomorrow morning at 10:30. I will be almost 17 weeks tomorrow so we aren't sure what if anything this scan will tell us as I have not had one quite this early before. The issues Asher had were discovered at 19 weeks. I will have another scan in four weeks to compare brain measurement and growth.

I know I am to be anxious about nothing and just giving it all to Him, but I must admit friends, I am struggling just a little. I do have peace about all of this and I can say I am not freaking out. I do however feel my anxiety level raise just a little when I think about it. Ultrasounds have taken on a whole new meaning for me. I am not concerned with getting a cute picture of my baby or with finding out the gender (though they would be a nice bonus). I just really long to hear that everything looks normal.

Though, I do know that if that is not the path the Lord has chosen for us, He will guide us through whatever comes. I know He has gone before me and has prepared me for whatever blessings this little one brings.

I also have to admit that I really can't hold back my excitement about this little one most of the time anymore...I hope, I dream and I pray. I know that children are a gift and whatever gift the Lord has for me I am open and willing to receive it as he sees fit.

I am asking that you pray for us. Pray for peace to continue to fill our hearts and minds, pray for the doctors we will speak with tomorrow, and of course for this little one growing inside my womb.

I am so grateful for each and every one of you who continue to check in on us and pray for our family! It means more than you could know and your prayers are felt in a big way!

We will keep you posted!

I am praying for you in a big way for tomorrow's ultrasound Kristy. Asking God to fill you with His peace and to remove any concerns and doubts. He is in control of this precious new life you are hoping and dreaming about as it grows inside you. Praying for normal in every single way. And you are so right sweet friend, He goes before you each step of the way. I love you.

I have had you in my thoughts over the past several day, I had remembered that the ultrasound was tomorrow. Keep the faith, we are trusting in something much greater than fear. Praying and speaking that everything is normal. A bonus to find out the gender too.
In my prayers,

Cheryl F.

You chose to take this road so you have no right to ask for prayer.
I really hope this baby is not sick so he/she does not have to suffer just because you feel the need to have more biological children.

Rachel said...

I am praying for your family and for a healthy new baby.

Praying for continued peace for you and for good news about your little one. The Lord is with you...you are not alone...and I know you know that. Also...I would like to send a Dreams of You Memory Book to baby Dylan's family from our ministry (www.sufficientgrace.net). Do you know how I could get it to them? I'm still keeping them in my prayers as well.

Blessings to you...

Kristy - we're praying for everything to be looking good on the ultrasound. I always think it would be so nice to hear that everything was boring and ordinary on a scan! Will be watching out for an update! Thinking of you all. XXX

our family said...

Kristy-
May God grant you and Howard peace as you get ready today for your ultrasound. May He calm your nerves and wrap you in His love. Pleading on your behalf that your baby is healthy and doing well. Praying you can get some reassurance so you can continue to hope and dream for this little miracle.
Hugs and Prayers

Kristy...I came across this quote this morning and instantly thought of you..."As we cultivate peace and happiness in ourselves,
We also nourish peace and happiness in those we love."

~Thich Nhat Hanh

You are an amazing mother and woman so I know you will cultivate peace in yourself in order to nourish it in your child...praying for this morning.

Melanie said...

Nichelle said...

Praying for you as you go to your ultrasound...everytime I start to worry and stress...I read and read my bible...so many scripture to pick that fits the worry in our hearts.
This one has always helped me.
Psalm 47:10
Be still, and know that I am God

I checked in a little late so I may have already missed the ultrasound but I still pray that you will get great news and that you continue to feel hope and peace while you wait for the newest addition to the Bolte family.
