Approaching Due Date

I had a meltdown today when I realized I would have been 37 weeks this weekend with the twins - I would have had my cerclage removed and been anticipating their birth. I cried and prayed and prayed and cried. How badly I want to kiss their little necks, to breathe in their sweet smell. How beautiful heaven grows in our eyes as we have more and more treasure there.

Praying for you. I know these due dates are so hard to face! May God be close to you at this time, may He fold you in His arms and shower you with His peace! A peace that passes all understanding!

August 24 and 25 as well as Jan 29 are my grief days. Yes, God is my provider and He gives sweet peace and I glady accept it. Yet. August 24 was the day we found out that Jesse died, the 25th was he day I delivered and he was buried, and Jan 29 was my due date. They are days of memorial for me and the days that I miss Jesse the most.

Jesse and my other two babies and your twins are in the presence of our Lord. They are already praising and worshipping Him in person.

Read Philippians 4:4-8 to learn more about the "peace that passeth all understanding". This became my anti-depressant Scripture when Jesse was sick and I have remained on this anti-depressant ever since. Praise the Lord for His Word!

Melanie, I love you and am praying for you during this time.

I would have been 38 weeks this Thursday with our baby who was born April 17th. Thank you so much for your openess and honesty here, something that's so hard to find. We have four children here, three in heaven.

My due date was really hard. I found a task to do that would help me remember my daughter. I painted the nursery at my church. It was healing to funnel my hurt into doing something constructive. I lost my second dd, and I am due with my sixth child on the day I found out my second dd had died. I am grieving in a new way with this pregnancy. Every year those anniversaries are hard. I pray your days will go well.
