A Miracle

Today, I am 17 weeks and 3 days pregnant.  Today, I saw my OB, only 2 short weeks after my hopes were nearly shattered after a trip to the ER.  Today, all hope was restored and this pregnancy was declared a miracle!

I went in to my doctor’s office today see my regular OB here in town for a regular check up.  Pee in a cup, weight check (which is still down a total of 8 for the pregnancy), BP check, listen for the heartbeat with the Doppler.  All of this went well.  Then we discussed the report the high risk Doc in OKC had sent, and how our week had gone as far as symptoms, issues, concerns, etc.  My doctor (while still a bit baffled by what we are dealing with) was very impressed with the report that was sent back to him, and very optimistic about this pregnancy hence forth.  He said to us, ”You know, when they called me at 7 am or whenever it was early that morning, I was really thinking we had no hope.  But, today, it has completely turned around.  You guys are a miracle!”  I go back to see the high risk doctor in about 3 weeks, and my regular doctor in 4 weeks.  SO MUCH easier on the soul than a doctor every other day for 10 days!

And I want to turn that around and say YOU GUYS – our family, friends, co-workers, life group members, casual acquaintances and complete internet strangers – YOU are the miracle.  You believed this with us, prayed it with us, and now you can PRAISE GOD with us.  My husband said it best on Facebook:
“- WOW ... how things can change in a matter of 14 days. 14 days ago we heard that things don't look good at all. 7 days ago we heard that there was a little more hope. Today we heard that it's a miracle. DO NOT TELL ME that prayer does not work. God listens and He answers. Thank you to all you prayer warriors out there!”
I (we) still covet your prayers.  I will not rest until there is a healthy baby at home in my arms.  Let’s keep up the work.  God’s not done here yet, I just know it!

O LORD, you are my God; I will exalt you and praise your name, for in perfect faithfulness you have done marvelous things, things planned long ago. 
Isaiah 25:1
