Doctor's Appointment....

Today we had a "routine" prenatal visit, I was surprised that we were not seeing my regular doctor, but we saw the doctor who actuall delivered Isaac. She was very kind and compassionate. Actually when we first arrived she moved us to another room because the woman next door to the room we were in had just gotten news that her baby had an "anomaly which was incompatible with life" So the doctor moved us so the woman would not hear the sound of our baby's heartbeat through the wall while she was processing her own loss. My heart broke for that woman and I pray that regardless of the prognosis she realizes how important that baby's life is and she chooses to allow God to take the reigns.

I had voiced concern that we hadn't had a sonogram in over a month and I was very curious about this little guy's position and if there had been any additional growth. So, the Doctor quickly wrote orders for ultrasounds. As I went to make my appointments I was informed that now the doctor wants to see me weekly for an appointment, Non Stress Test and Sonogram! AAAAAAAAAHHHHH! ONCE A WEEK! This means the appointments would begin every Tuesday at 3 and go until 5 and not one of those appointments were with MY doctor! They also want an additional sonogram this Thursday! I am frustrated by this because Howard cannot afford to take additional time off and it is impossible for him to be in Erie at 3 when he works until 3:15. I also do not see not having him there with me as an option. This puts us in a predicament. We want to do what is best for Happy, but are all these appointments necessary? I am going to call the office tomorrow and try to speak with MY doctor and see what he thinks. Please pray for us on this as we want to do what is best for our baby, but also for our family! The thought of all of these doctor appointments already has me stressed out!

Keep praying for a miracle!

I will be praying for a miracle here also, and asking God to direct each decision on Happy's behalf. I asking God to give you His complete peace during this time, and to help you with the stress it brings.

Love, Laurie in Ca.

Oh I **COMPLETELY understand the frustration about the appointments. I had about 10 weeks of those with the triplets. Josh was only able to go to one of them. :( Sono's are always fun, but so much more fun with hubby there. We are still praying for you and Happy. No matter what happens Happy has been so very blessed with such a special mommy. :) Josh and I were just talking the other night about how awesome it's going to be when we go to eternity and all of our angel babies will be there to greet us. Our time on Earth is so short compared to eternity, and I can't wait to meet my little ones that I have never held in my arms. I can't ever imagine the grief of saying goodbye to a child that I have carried for 9 months and held in my arms, and I pray I never have to feel that grief...but eternity is forever and someday I believe that our losses will be restored to us.
I am praying that you and Howard expierience a miracle in a few short weeks.
