Please Pray

A few days ago, I posted this:
My mom first suspected that my sister was pregnant early last November when she passed out. Well, my sister is pregnant, but the early ultrasound placed her due date at September 6.
Two days ago, my sister bled a little and was in the hospital with contractions. She's dilated to 3 cm and her cervix is very thin, but the baby is not head down. She was sent home and put on bed rest.
Is it possible that her due date is wrong and her baby is due earlier than expected???

Now, my sister is back in the hospital 4 cm dilated and fully effaced. She's having bad contractions. Her doctor is out of town so they're calling the on call doc. They were gonna do an ultrasound on Monday to check on the baby, but Christi didn't make it that long. They're trying to stop the labor and mom's going to ask the on call doc to order an ultrasound.
I'm really worried.

  • I promised her I'd be there. We're leaving Monday to drive back there, but that's still 2 days away. She wasn't supposed to have that baby this early!!!

  • I will be praying for her. Yes, the due date could be wrong. I hope that everyone gets through this and that there will be a healthy baby.

  • Well, they aren't going to do the ultrasound. The doctor is afraid that if the baby is big enough (say, 6 pounds) and he lets her go through with labor, it might not be as ready if they can get her to wait. Her contractions slowed down a bit but then sped back up.

  • Lord, please take care of this Mom and the precious baby that she is carrying. I pray that you will guide the Dr.'s hands and give them the knowledge to know what to do at this troubling time. Bring Peace to this family, and ease the burden from their worried hearts. Please protect them and keep them all the days of their lives. If it be your will, Lord, please allow that sweet baby to enter this world safe and healthy, and wrapped in Your loving arms. I pray that you're with the Mother while she is going through this ordeal and pray that You have her in the Palm of your hand, guiding her, comforting her, and bringing her JOY after seeing her through. I ask these things in YOUR Holy name....Amen

  • Blessed is the Child of Light
    Who doth seek his heavenly Father
    For he shall have eternal life.

    He that dwelleth in the secret place
    Of the Most High
    Shall abide under the shadow
    of the Almighty.
    For he shall give his Angels charge over thee
    To keep thee in all thy ways.
