Pray for My Rainbow

We weren’t ready to tell people that I am pregnant again, that our rainbow baby is forming in my belly. We were planning to wait. But today, we desperately covet your prayers.

I started spotting while I was at work yesterday afternoon. It came with cramps and back pain. The spotting was brown yesterday. This morning it was dark red. I called the hospital, and they scheduled me to come in for an ultrasound. I have to go to the same place I had my last ultrasound with Calvin. After the ultrasound, I have to check into the OB clinic. The same place I went for my prenatal appointments with Calvin.

I am asking you to please cover us in your prayers. I am asking you to pray for me as I go back to the places where I went during my pregnancy with Calvin. I am asking you to pray for Louie because he cannot come with me. And most especially, I am asking you to pray for this baby I am carrying, that this little one be safe and continue to form in my womb, that our rainbow may live with us on Earth as we all wait to rejoin Calvin in heaven.

  1. I had back pain all throughout and had bleeding at the very end as well and our baby is perfectly healthy. Praying the same goes for you guys!

  2. Wiser Pregnancy recently published results from a scientific survey that found that 68% of women experience back pain during their pregnancy and it’s one of the most common ailments

  3. Praying for you, and hoping that all is good. My OB was just telling me that something like 25% of all women have bleeding with their pregnancies, so I’m hoping it’s okay!
