Its so hard, sometimes, to not be fearful. Especially when it seems we're surrounded by bad news or circumstances. Cancer, infant death, the swine flu, car accidents, etc. Or, in my case, miscarriage.

I'm fearful today. I woke up panicked that something happened to the baby. I haven't felt sick yet today, and other pregnancy symptoms don't seem to be bothering as much today, either. Some pregnant women would rejoice in that. It petrifies me.

Even though I am afraid, I know that the bible says that God has not given us a spirit of fear! (2 Timothy 1:7)

God will hold my hand!

For I am the Lord, your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you. (Isaiah 41:13)

He will never forsake me!

Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. (Deuteronomy 31:6)

He will guard my heart and mind, and give me peace!

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:6-7).

“I sought the LORD, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears” (Psalm 34:4)

He will deliver me from my fear!

I know that fear. And those who have never gone thru a miscarriage have no idea how lucky they are to have all those pregnancy symptoms. I pray that you are just having an easy pregnant day and that your baby is still doing great. My thoughts are with you. Take Care.

The nurses at my doctors office laughed at me when I came in worried that I wasn't having morning sickness. They said, "Most women are happy about that!"

I am praying for you and the little baby inside!

I was worried for pretty much all of my pregnancy--I am praying that you will have a great outcome this time.

I know your fear.. I remember it well... waking up in the morning and begging to feel sick.. to vomit.. to cry out in pain if you even bump your breasts.. I remember the fear..

And as you know, the fear will not leave you until you hold that sweet baby in your arms...but you have done it twice before, and you can do it again!!!

Just think.. this could be the one!

Hang in there... one hour at a time.. with each hour that passes you are one hour closer to carrying to term, and one hour more pregnant than you were an hour ago..

Hang in there.. we are with you

I, too, know that fear, and I also pray that you are just losing the sickness part of your pregnancy and that it will be a wonderful and peaceful pregnancy from here on. I have noticed that since becoming a parent, I have much more fears that I ever did before. I pray that God gives you peace of mind. When is your next ultrasound or doctor appointment? Are you being treated as high risk? You and your child are in my prayers!
