My heart simply jumps up and falls right out of my chest with this ache. I envy them their other children. A reason to stand up every morning. I only have my one sweet girl. If this happened......
I also ask that if I can't get pregnant, that I have peace with that, and not feel sad about it.
Also, I ask that my brother, who recently had a psychotic break, be given what he needs to be well.

I ask that the work on the house go quickly, and that we have all the resources necessary to finish it so that we can stay here this winter.
with great joy and gratitude
Welcome to baby Fiona with a giant omphalocele, 6/17/10!
I am also asking you to pray for my other friend, whose boyfriend just joined the military and will be away for a year, that he comes home safe, and that my friend finds peace and comfort.
I turned 38 weeks on Saturday. Sunday(yesterday) morning I woke up and felt kind of cruddy. I kept having diahrea and having a bunch of contractions. I tried to drink some water to make sure i wasn't dehydrated, then I took a bath to try to relax me. And then I started freaking out. : I got really overwhelmed thinking it was the real thing and that I really wasn't ready for labor right now(I totally want my baby here and can hardly wait, I just am not wanting the labor!!). My DH came in from cleaning the garage and I was talking to him and I said I want a c-section. : Our baby has been breech, the midwife turned him/her last Monday and I am 99% sure he/she turned back to breech. She will still do a home birth for a breech if we want that, as long as it's not a footling breech. So then my husband and I take a little walk around our yard and I said I could compromise and not have the c-section but have an epidural instead. My husband is telling me, you don't want a c-section, & you've given birth 3 times before without any kind of pain meds, vaginally, you don't want that. I honestly at the time felt like it would be the "easy" route to take. I don't know what the heck is wrong with me...of course I don't really WANT a c-section....I've paid all this money out of pocket to have a home birth....I don't even want to set foot into a hospital. I don't want an epidural either. I just wanted peace.
I sort of feel like I lost it for a bit there. I kept saying I wasn't ready and that I wanted to do this another day. Eventually the contractions slowed down, though I still had diahrea for the rest of the day. What's wrong with me? I really can hardly wait to meet my little one, but for some reason after 3 natural births, I'm scared of labor this time. (I've had 2 hospital births, and then one planned unassisted home birth...this one is planned home birth with a midwife).
Do you think it could be because I'm pretty sure the baby is breech and that just freaks me out a bit? I feel in my head that if the baby were to turn head down again that maybe I wouldn't be so scared? I've got an appointment with a Webster Certified Chiropractor for Wed(the soonest they could get me in). I've been reading they have great sucess with breech babies turning, so I'm hoping/praying that it will work for us too.
So if you got this far, thank you so much for caring enough to read!! Am I the only one that has had children before and is still scared??
I would love prayers for peace for labor/delivery. I don't want to be scared.

Please pray for my dear friend. She gave birth to her second child (a girl) 3 weeks ago. Since then, my sweet friend has been in and out of the hospital with severe complications related to eclampsia and a medical disorder that she has. She is not getting better and infection is ravaging her body. Things appear bleak, and we need a miracle. Please pray that her health be restored and that she be able to return home to her husband, son, and new baby. She is a ray of light in the lives of so many (including mine). Please pray that we do not lose her.
THANK YOU THANK YOU for all of your prayers. After seven + months in the hospital and rehabilitation facilities, my friend returned home to her husband and her children this past weekend. She still has a very long journey ahead of her, re-learning how to walk, eat, etc. but she is cognitively intact and home again with those who love her so. I could not feel more blessed. Thank you!
He is NOT one of the types of guys that is always badmouthed here. He was loved by everyone he worked with, treated his prisoners with respect (even watched him talk a pos wifebeater into his car w/o using a bit of force), and has a SO and 11 month old daughter at home.
He had to have emergency surgery in his head for a very large bleed in the lowest level of his brain. He is now in serious condition, and his family was told it could still go either way. I had the pleasure of working with both him and his SO, and am praying for them all. Thank you.

I have three animals who are ill. Two, Abigael and Duncan are kitties. Abigael has ongoing issues due to hydrocephalus and can't really walk. Duncan is hospitalized due to a urinary blockage. McKenna, my dog, was diagnosed with bone cancer. We amputated her leg and she's going through chemotherapy.
A good friend of mine was just diagnosed with cancer. She is only in her early 20's.
DH and I have been having serious financial issues and need so much help. We also need a new place to live.
DH has some issues of his own with a sex addicition and anger management. I need a lot of prayer here.
Thanks to all who pray.

Jess was born! He weighs 8 lbs 5 ounces and is 20 inches long. Mom says he has brown curly hair and that he looks perfect and that he screamed just as soon as he was born so he obviously has some strong lungs.
Jess is currently in the ICU and Mom told me that Dad has been with him since he was born and that they are now waiting for word from their doctor about an MRI.
Mom sounded absolutely awesome and was very happy with her new baby boy. Keep those prayers coming for Mom, Dad, baby and for little sister.
I am paganish and I believe in the power of prayer and manifesting.
My neighbors have a very dear friend who fell off a ladder and is in very bad shape (serious head trauma, maybe brain damage, not known yet and lots of other issues). He is a wonderful man. A very strong believer in christianity and one who is always doing things to help others. We have been recipients of his generosity and kindness.
I did light a candle for him. Yet I felt compelled to place his story on this list. Please add him to your prayers, thoughts, requests, whatever. Thank you.
Thank you all very much.
His daughters are in their early teens and really need their daddy.
