The End of the Beginning

I have my scheduled D&C today at 12:30.  I'm really scared something will go wrong, but I'm ready to return to "normal" and start to heal.  Over the past 3 days I've started feeling less pregnant, so hopefully the whole thing will go a little smoother than when I was still vomiting and feeling sick all the time. Now I'm just tired and waiting to heal in a different way.

Bye baby, I love you. 

Prayer After Miscarriage or Stillbirth

By Sandy Eisenberg Sasso

God, we are weary and grieved. We were anticipating the birth of a child, but the promise of life was ended too soon. Our arms yearned to cradle new life, our mouths to sing soft lullabies. Our hearts ache from the emptiness and the silence. We are saddened and we are angry. We weep and we mourn. Weep with us, God, Creator of Life, for the life that could not be.

Source of healing, help us to find healing among those who care for us and those for whom we care. Shelter us under wings of love and help us to stand up again for life even as we mourn our loss.
