Prayers please- on bed rest

Postby sabri1115 » Tue Dec 21, 2010 1:25 pm

Please pray for me and my unborn baby. I am 24 weeks pregnant and on bed rest. I have been having contractions (preterm labor) since 22 weeks and am taking medication every 4 hours around the clock to stop the contractions. I am still getting them, but they have slowed down. My aunt told me to pray to St. Gerard and I discovered this beautiful website. I am praying his novena. Please pray that my little girl is born healthy and at full term in April. Thank you!

You and your baby will be in my thoughts and prayers. It is good that they have slowed them down. I have nephews born at 27w2d and you would never know it now. I hope the bedrest and meds help you make it much closer to the due date. Please keep us posted.

We finally made #3 after 49 cycles of TTC and more or less coming to terms with the idea of no more children!

Thank you so much Cheryl for your prayers. I will keep you updated.
Please pray for my friend, Anne, who lost her little girl (full term) during birth last night. My thoughts and prayers are with her and her family right now. Heaven gained an angel.

Re: Prayers please- on bed rest- Update: 30 weeks now

Postby sabri1115 » Mon Feb 07, 2011 8:46 am

Please continue to pray for my little girl. I am 30 weeks now and on Friday I had to be admitted to the hospital because of increased contractions, as the medication I was taking (terbutaline) was no longer working. I am currenly on IV magnesium, which has controlled the contractions, but it is very powerful and makes the baby sleepy and does have strong side effects. They are going to be weaning me off it to see how my body and the baby does. Hopefully all goes well. The baby is is very small (under 10th percenticle) and hopefully weighs close to 3 lbs by now. Please pray that she will continue to grow and battle out the challenges she has already had to face. I know she is a strong little girl. Please pray that God protects her and she will safely arrive into this world, hopefully full term. Thank you for your prayers and support. I feel them and the warmth of God's light with me and our little girl.

Just a note to let you know that out daughter, Bebel Maria, was born on 3/10/11 via c-section. She weighed 5 lbs 11 oz and was 16 inches long. She was in the NICU for two weeks and now she is home. She just turned one month and is doing wonderful! Thank you so much for all the prayers!! Prayer is powerful!!!!
