Thank you, thank you for all your prayers over the last week.

I had a scary bleeding episode Monday evening. So preparing for the unknown, we called family and friends for prayer and practical support. Immediately your prayers started storming heaven! The grace of those hours was very evident.

The bleeding subsided about 1.5 hours after it so abruptly began, and Baby's heartbeat was strong and steady Tuesday morning. Thank You Lord!

For whatever reason, part of the placenta had detached from the uterine wall, causing the bleeding. Because there is not a particular reason for why that detachment occured and it can happen again, Baby is not entirely out of the woods.

In addition to keeping baby safely inside, please pray that the intestinal blip that the 12 week ultrasound showed is safely inside baby's belly by our next ultrasound at 18 weeks (4 weeks from now.)
