Urgent Prayer Request

Baby at 7 weeks gestation!

Life is crazy, it’s insane and for the most part, it’s exhilarating and beautiful.  And then sometimes it’s not.  It can be scary and dark and sad and lonely.

And being a parent compounds the good and the bad.  As a mom, when my children are involved, I feel the good so much stronger, and I feel the bad equally strong.

Nothing makes your heart soar more than watching your children soar in their faith, thrive in surroundings, and succeed in their dreams.

And, conversely, nothing can compare to the fear of something going wrong … anything at all.

That is where I am today and it’s the reason for this blog.

Maybe you know, I am 7 weeks pregnant, maybe you missed that video, but 7 weeks is a very precarious stage, so very early in the pregnancy.

Yet, early as it may be, this baby is already a member of our family, we are in love, he or she is very much wanted and deeply deeply loved.

Unfortunately, I feel this young fragile life is threatened and I’m terrified.

It all started Friday, when I began spotting … today it’s a tad bit more and red.  No cramps, no flow, just spotting and so incredibly frightening that I’m writing this blog to appeal to our prayerful friends that they include us in their prayers.

Tomorrow I see my Dr at 3:30 Mountain time … prayers that I avoid miscarriage and for a healthy baby are so so appreciated.  I know the power of prayer, I’ve seen three miracles in my lifetime, in addition to the 12 miracles of life that I’ve been privvy to,  and I know God and all the Angels and Saints are faithful…thank you in advance, you guys, we are so grateful for any and all prayer.

JMJ, pray for us!  St Gerard, pray for us! St Catherine of Siena, pray for us!  St Monica, pray for us! St Anthony, pray for us! St Jude, pray for us! St Gianna Beretta Molla, pray for us!

  • I remember, a few months after I had my first daughter, I felt a “little off” and took a pregnancy test. It immediately did two lines and I was excited. I started spotting and then started bleeding and I worried about a miscarriage. My OB did bloodwork and an ultrasound, followed by a second ultrasound a little later. Turns out it was implantation. I had caught the pregnancy very very early.

    My hope is that it’s really that simple for you. I pray you are wrapped in God’s love (and that you really feel that) and that a hedge of protection is around you, your baby, and your family.

  • Knowing Gods in control and all things are governed over is not always easy but know you are loved. I will pray for peace and Gods arms around you and your family to embrace and give you peace with whatever is going on in your body. I have been there and it’s a hard thing ever to go through. Thank you for sharing it makes you real!! May God Bless you this day and all the future.

  • There is no need to pray to the saints, Jesus is all you need. If you ask the Lord by name, He will hear you. He is able but remember, sometimes his answer of no is more gracious than yes. There are deformities and such happening in children now, so if his answer is no do not loose faith or heart because only he knows why.

  • I feel your worry, it’s all to familiar. I had that exact issue in all my pregnancies, it wasn’t until my 4th pregnancy that they figured out it was low progesterone. Have the doc check that for sure. My family is praying for your precious baby to be safe and healthy.

  • Prayers being said and candle lit for your family. Jesus Mary Joseph and all the Saints please let this baby be protected by your loving arms and for The whole Kellogg Family to find strength in their faith in you.
    This I pray for The Lord is Good Amen!

  • Oh, how I love the words you have used to describe a mother’s heart. The good and the bad. I love so much how you have faith in the power of prayer. Also, I love you talking about how much you love your precious 7wks in the womb child. You have my prayers and my admiration. My condition obviously may not be your condition, but I had a pregnancy where I started to bleed quite a bit somewhere between my 9th and 13th week. I was terrified. In the end, it was some kind of placental condition (sorry I forget now what it was called – but it’s a small tearing I think) – it’s a common – though scary – but not dangerous condition. I bled for about a week and was told to rest (I put myself on a kind of bed rest) and then all was well. I ended up being induced and she was over 9lbs. However, she still traumatizes me with her rambunctious personality. Thinking of you…

  • Susie…My middle name is Christina. Given to me because I was born on the Memorial Day of St. Christina the Astonishing. She had a stroke at age 21 and died…at her service she awoke and told of Heaven, hell, and purgatory. God offered her to stay in Heaven or return to Earth to pray for the souls of purgatory. She chose Prayer over Heaven and returned to live another 53 years. In her honor….I will get on my knees tonight and pray for our sweet baby in the name of the Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit …Amen….
