A Little Help From My Friends

Hey there prayer buddy and AWESOME blogging mama friends! Could you please say an extra prayer for me tonight? I have to have an amnio in the morning and I have to tell you - YIKES! I’m a bit scared.

I guess God was really using Tessa to teach me a lesson on fear this week for a reason. No need for big concern, I’m just a Scaredy Cat. You see, I did what no person in their right mind should do before a medical procedure; I googled. U-Tube had an assortment of lovely amnio videos for my viewing pleasure and now I’m pretty sure I won’t be sleeping tonight!

My husband almost passed out once because he thought it would be a good idea to watch them put the epidural in during one of my labors. That was not a good choice on his part. He said it was one of the freakiest things he has ever seen. He’s in for a treat in the morning. I can’t decide if I should warn him via making him watch what I watched, or if ignorance really is bliss.

Thanks for your prayers – in the end it is worth every snuggle and baby coo in the world!

If you happen to be my in real life friend/family or FB friend, please don’t mention this on my FB wall. I’m not in the mood to answer lots of questions about my pregnancy to some people I sat next too in 8th grade science or met once at a party.

Also, this baby is coming sometime in the next week or two. I would love to offer up some of my labor for your intentions, so comment or send me an e-mail if you have a prayer request!

Oh and I'm sorry about the amnio, I don't even know what it is....

Amnios are scary I'm sure, but it'll all be ok! Are they just checking baby's lungs? My dr has banned me from googling anything to do with my pregnancies after a few embarrassing questions stemming from searches, lol. You will be in my prayers.

Now I want to look up amnio videos but I know they will scare me to death! I will try not to just in case I ever have to do one.

I will say prayers for you!! (And a special one that you get the peace you need to be able to sleep tonight!) Good luck!

Oh boy, Holly...I'm behind. Why are you getting an amnio? I may not know right off but I will check back to see how things went. Oh, be brave like I know you will be, dear mama-writer pal. You can do this. God will hold your hand. Trust! I know, hard to actually pull off, but try. I will pray grace flows in abundance!

Praying for you!

My prayer request if for a friend struggling to stay pregnant...she's had 11 miscarriages (including 1 stillborn at 32 weeks). Thank you!

Hey honey! I hope the test went well! You have (and will continue to be) in my prayers. ... My prayer request would be for my husband to find a job, he's been unemployed for 2 years now. :-( Thanks so much for offering up for all of us! Love & Prayers.
