The Diagnosis.

Initial test results from the CVS indicate that this is a partial molar pregnancy and the baby has Triploidy.  Our second triploid pregnancy.

My blood pressure appeared to go down over night, but today it popped back up.  They started me on a beta blocker that should help some of the hyperthyroid symptoms.  Right now I am hooked up to a heart monitor with 5 or 6 sticky pads stuck all over my chest and sides.

I have been transferred to the labor and delivery floor and they have agreed to do an induction rather than a D&C.

Can't type much as they just placed a pulse moniter on my finger and my tablet always gives me a hard time with blogger.com.

Many doctors have come in today and introduced themselves.  I am so thankful for how accommodating the staff here has been for our request to give the greatest dignity to our little one.

God is just arranging the details for this hard time just beautifully.  I have been blessed by visits from a dear friend today who had just been through a pregnancy loss herself, visits by 2 doctors who share our faith, and my current nurse does as well.  We have had offers for childcare, food, and so many prayers and words of encouragement.

The Lord has placed some bible verses and blog posts right in front of me today that have helped to confirm some of our decisions.

Its 4:16 pm now....going to be a long night.  Thank you for your prayers.

Oh no. I'm so sorry to hear such sad news. :( Our daughter was induced in the 2nd trimester for medical reasons as well. May the Lord surround you and your family with his presence and peace as you endure this.

I'm so sorry. It's hard to be open to life and so vulnerable to loss at the same time. God bless you for your continual "Yes!" to His plan.

Tears for you right now, but at the same time you are writing with peace I know only comes from the Holy Spirit. I continue prayers for you and offer you one of my favorite verses Romans 5:3-5. "And not only this, but we also exult in our tribulations, knowing that tribulation brings about perseverance; and perseverance, proven character; and proven character, hope; and hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out within our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us." God bless you and your family.

Hebrews 11:1 said...

Angela, you have been in my prayers over the last few days. My heart breaks reading this post but I pray that God's perfect will be done. Many prayers for your family and your sweet little baby. May our Lord and our Blessed Mother comfort you and give you strength. I don't know if it is possible but hoping that you can baptize your beloved baby. Praying for your doctors and the all people who are taking care of you. Lifting you in prayer. God Bless You!
