Psalm 139:13-16

"For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be."

Doctor's Appointment

Well we had a doctor's appointment this week and it was not the news we wanted to hear.  I still have complete placenta previa.  My doctor said it is unlikely to move at this point (I'm 24 weeks).  I will go back to him at 32 weeks to check on it again.  We were SO disappointed to receive this news.

Baby Micah is 100% healthy though!  His choroid plexus cyst is gone and they all enjoyed looking at all his perfectly healthy organs!  It was fun for them to talk about how good everything with him looks.

Just wish my placenta was more cooperative.

I'm posting this (maybe too much information?) so that you can pray specifically for Micah and me.

Please pray
-that the placenta would MOVE!
-that I will have NO complications (no contractions or life threatening bleeding)
-that Micah will make it to full term (having a premature baby is a possibility with PP)
-that I will be able to work the remainder of this pregnancy
-for Chad and Grace as they continue to cope with this new normal
-for me emotionally, as I am struggling with worry, fear, and the feeling of being robbed of now two pregnancies
-that I will not have to have a hysterectomy (also a possibility with PP)

I'm so sorry if that is too much information, but I really want you to be able to pray specifically for these things with us.  I am trying to move past the worry and fear and focus on enjoying the pregnancy, as well as the fact that Micah is HEALTHY!  Praise God!  Thank you for your prayers!


  1. I can pray for you and your family. And I think it is good to be specific with us. Take good care of yourself.♥♫

  2. Had a placenta previa in 1974--before they knew to look for such things!! He is now almost 40 and has two precious little girls of his own. God is GOOD!!
