The Dreaded Gestation.....

..... is here! Yikes!

I am 19 weeks 1 day today. In 2008, I went in to labor with Alyssa-Joy at 19 weeks, 3 days and she was delivered and returned to our Savior at 19 weeks, 4 days. In 2009, Evan died from an infection at 20 weeks, 2 days and was delivered at 20 weeks, 3 days. To say that so far I am an emotional wreck is an understatement. I keep reminding myself; "I have the TAC! I have the TAC! I have the TAC! I have the TAC! I have the TAC!"

Please pray for my sanity these next few days as the apprehension is at an all time high (through the roof actually). I want to blink and these next two weeks have passed.

In other news, 4 more school days until Christmas vacation, 7 more days until my next c/l measurement, 5 more weeks until 24 weeks............

Oh Lord, thou hast searched me and known me.
Thou knowest my downsitting and mine uprising, thou understandest my thoughts afar off. - Psalm 139

Awaiting my expected end (great c/l and still working!)


  1. Praying for you! I know how it reeks havoc on you to get past those dreaded milestones! It WILL happen though! Your faith will get you there and if you have a few meltdowns between now and then, so be it, you deserve it! Indulge it and move on! It will come and go before you know it!

  2. Praising God with you Marie! You have hit a milestone and I am Faithful in the remainder of your journey :) Keep us posted on your cervical measurement.

    Time is flying! You hit 19w and I just hit 20. And that 24 wk mark is just around the corner for you.

    Much Love and Prayers Always

  3. Sending you love marie. Giving God glory for you b/c he's already worked it out. I know these couple of weeks are going to be hard and draining, but i pray that you find a little bit of peace in the midst of it all. HUGS to you friend.

  4. Continuing to keep you in my thoughts and prayers! Hugs...

  5. Many hugs and prayers that you and baby will get past these days and he/she will be born healthy and fullterm! Love you, dear, and I was encouraged by your last post - glad you are getting as much tine as you can off your feet. xoxoxo

  6. Oh Marie...I'm praying and praying for you! I know how it is to be in this super scary time. But you are going to make it, and you are going to go 20 more weeks and hold your beautiful baby, breathing and crying, in your arms! I believe this for you, and you do have the TAC! The best thing you could have ever done! Love you friend, and know that I'm lifting you up constantly!!

  7. Lifting you up in prayer constantly! Use you faith to get you through this these next few weeks. God can do anything but fail!

  8. I will say extra prayers in the next few days! Our God is, can, and will..

  9. It all looks so good in terms of CL, I am very sure that it will work this time! I don't see a single reason why not. Of course, you will still worry, but I know you and baby will be fine and deliver at term.
