Prayer

Please begin praying for Baby Roberts, Noah, and me. Our high-risk doctor's appointment is this Tuesday morning at 8:30. Of course, we are extremely nervous about this appointment. The doctor will spend time looking very closely at the ultrasound to see if he sees any marks that could mean possible chromosome or health issues. This is a highly trained doctor, so his view of it weighs heavier than those ultrasounds done at the regular doctor. For this reason, we will have our 20-week ultrasound with the high-risk doctor instead of how it is normally done. Because of the risks involved in getting an amniocentesis, we only want to get one done if the doctor sees multiple marks.
When we chose to have the amniocentesis done while I was pregnant with Magdalena, the doctor saw three marks that let us know that there was a possible problem. She had a short femur, extremely low weight/size, and a heart problem. There were small things too that were associated with T18, but I don't think that those are really counted when deciding whether or not to have an amniocentesis done.
Thanks so much for your prayers!

  3. Will be praying for you Tues morning. Praying that your nerves settle down long enough to enjoy the ultrasound and hear the dr. say its a beautifully healthy baby. :) Its hard not to be nervous though when you no longer have that untouched innocence in pregnancy. I always breathed a little easier after that special ultrasound. I never did another amnio after Samuel. I figured if it was bad enough that I needed to know about it ahead of time they would see it in a high res. ultrasound. Its wise to go with the ultrasound as a screening first.
    Have a fun time seeing your little guy Tues.

  4. I will pray for you to have peace of mind, but I just know that Baby Roberts is doing just fine... He has to be, his big sister is looking after him..

    btw.. I am not sure if you told us about the sex yet or not, but he just sounds right..I do remember you posting something about having a boy would be weird, but I can't remember if that was fact or just your thoughts..

    I can't wait to hear your happy news and see some pics of HIM!

  7. Father God, I pray that in this moment, you would bathe Noah, Julie and Baby Boy Roberts in your sweet presence. Calm their hearts and renew their minds as they go for this ultrasound on Tuesday. I pray that the staff would support them in every way possible. That your love would be evident in that exam room to all who participate in the process. That the doctor would work quickly and efficiently. That this precious little one would be completely and wholly formed with an excellent report for this 20 week mark. In the name of Jesus we ask these things, Amen!

  8. definitely praying and still checking in very often! So thankful for the opportunity to keep up with your journey. I've been reading for a long time.

    We have our 18 1/2 week ultrasound on Friday and are silently terrified. After the birth of our first two children, we've lost four babies in a row now to miscarriage. This one has come the furthest. Please pray!

  16. Julie,

    Loved "densgirls" prayer and am praying in agreement with her. Praying also for that peace that passes all understanding, that peace that can only come from the Lord for both you and Noah.

    Love,
    Kathy
