nervous about baby Troys health (xposted)

Postby jennellis » Wed Aug 13, 2008 1:51 pm

As some of you know, back in April at our 20 week scan we were told that Troy had an echogenic focus on his heart. We were sent to a fetal cardiologist and genetic Dr. at UAB for further testing- the "spot" was still there, but nothing else unusual was found. I opted not to have the quad scan because I knew that if something was wrong I would not choose to terminate for any reason. So for the past 18 weeks we have been left to wonder about what this will mean for Troy once he is here. I feel that god made us wait for this baby for a reason and if something is wrong then I will learn to handle it. It just hurts really bad to think that your child may be hurting for any reason and there is nothing you can do about it.
I was also told at 27 weeks that I have gestational diabetes, which just added to my stress.
It is very emotionally draining to "think" that our precious baby may have to go though something like this. Obed (DH) has been the greatest husband/father through all of this. Even though we are both scared we know that God will help us through whatever it is.

Due to my Gestational Diabetes I will be induced sometime next week(8/19-8/25). I can't believe that the time is already here for us to finally meet our precious son. I ask that you please pray for his health and safety as he makes his way into this world.
And Thank You for all the prayers that have been sent our way.

I'm praying for the health and safe delivery of baby Troy. God is so good and He will be right there with you. Just lean on Him and everything will work out just fine.

God bless you and KUP,
