Monday is a big day. :) We are looking forward to Monday, because that'll be our first look at our little baby and we'll hopefully see the heartbeat! And then I'll have an appointment with the doc.

I have been feeling very peaceful lately, which I can only attribute to all the wonderful people praying for us and to the peace that only God can give. I can tell you that last time around I was much, much more anxious ...

That said, it is very easy to be anxious about Monday. I don't want to be anxious. But it is easy. When I was pregnant over the summer, we had eight ultrasounds. Eight. And I was only ever 10 weeks pregnant. Needless to say, I rested on those ultrasound tables eight different times aching to hear a heartbeat. And we never did.

So on Monday, at 2pm - Texas time, I ask for your prayers. Mostly and obviously, I hope and pray for a healthy little baby with a beating heart. But also, I pray for peace for us as I once again get ready for an ultrasound and pray for a heartbeat.

"Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus." Philippians 4:6-7


  1. Those are probably two of my favorite verses in the whole bible. The promise that the peace of God will guard your heart and mind? Unfathomable and amazing. I will be petitioning right along with you... Lord may they hear a strong, healthy heartbeat...

  2. Erica, I came here from Kelly's prayer blog, and I am rejoicing with you over this little miracle growing inside of you. My best friend has gone through much of what you have described here - I believe she has the same blood clotting issue - and she is now 38 weeks pregnant with her second baby boy. I will be praying for you tomorrow as you go in for your ultrasound...our God is good, and He'll be right there with you. Blessings!

  3. I've been thinking about you today and hope to hear good news from you soon!
