why worry when we can pray?

Our NST yesterday went fine, but the u/s scan didn’t. Doc spent some time looking at a specific part of Ella and then determined we need to go in for another Level II u/s. I asked if something was wrong, and he was vague, not reassuring, but also not letting distinct concern be known. As I’ve stated a billon times over, her AFI being so high is a marker for a fetal anomaly. He made some comments which Jason and I have spent much too much time speculating on, when really we just need to wait and trust.

The u/s is Thursday afternoon {with another NST Thursday morning, prior to the u/s}. We will see!

Really, I think it’s easy, for us especially, to worry since all of our previous pregnancies have ended in the death of babies – Jason says it makes sense that we would be a bit paranoid. But the truth of the matter is all that we can really do is give our concerns over to God and rest in His peaceful arms. He will be the same Thursday afternoon as He was last week when all was well, regardless of any outcomes. He has carefully knit Ella together and shown off over and over again in this pregnancy. Miracles are to be expected.
