I will trust in You...

In my last post I told you about the clot and bleeding that I was having. I had an ultrasound after that on October 9th and Praise God, the clot was gone! And I'm excited to say that I haven't had any bleeding for over 3 weeks! At my last ultrasound on the 9th we did possibly discover another complication. On the ultrasound it showed that my placenta was low lying, near my cervix, and in two sections. One of the sections was larger and on the right of the cervix, but there was a smaller portion on the left. The pieces must be connected by vessels, which were running across the cervix. This is called a vasa previa. It's very high risk and results in bed rest at home followed by hospitalization around 28 weeks. You have to deliver via c-section and it's usually around 35 weeks because they don't want to risk your water breaking, which would rupture of the vessels of the placenta. The placenta is the powerhouse for the baby, it's nutrients, oxygen - everything. My doctor said we'd know more at my next appointment.

So for the past 3 weeks I've been restless on bed rest. Well today was my next appointment and my 19 week ultrasound. From the beginning many people have been praying along side Ryan and I, but last night I had incredible doubt. I had this fear that I wouldn't be coming home from the hospital, or if I did it would be on strict bed rest. In the medical field it would be a miracle for the placenta to move across the cervix and become one with the other portion. I was thinking "God, can you really do this?" I know that we serve an awesome God but satan was whispering in my ear saying "are you sure you believe your God can perform miracles?" So I went into the appointment not knowing what to expect.

Well satan is wrong, my God can perform miracles, and He did! Not only was there no vasa previa, my placenta also migrated up my uterine wall away from my cervix! There are absolutely no complications, nothing wrong. The baby is measuring a few days ahead and looks absolutely perfect! Everything looks completely perfect! My doctor even said that everything looks like a normal, healthy pregnancy, finally!

Ryan and I have trusted in the Lord from the very beginning of all this, no matter what. I fully surrendered everything to Him, no matter what. I knew that He would use me and our journey in the lives of others, but I had no idea how. I prayed the worst wouldn't happen, but also prepared myself in case it did. Today God said "yes I'm going to use you in the lives of others, but in an amazing way and I'm going to bless you abundantly, in a way you didn't expect!" Our Pastor has been preaching on praying boldly and how God doesn't think the way we do. Today sure was a testimony to that!

I've been leaning on the following scripture:

Romans 15:13 May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Hebrews 10:23 Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for He who promised is faithful

God is the ultimate physician, the ultimate healer. Our God is faithful, He is real, He does perform miracles and we will continue to put our hope and trust in Him.

1 Chronicles 16:8 - Give praise to the Lord, proclaim His name, make known among the nations what He has done.
