Good Morning, After having trouble getting pregnant for many years almost 2 years ago we were blessed with a baby boy. We decided to try again to give him a sibling and unexpectedly got pregnant again this time with a baby girl (Graciana). She has been growing and the pregnancy has been happy and healthy although im tired from chasing her brother (Felix). This past week i went in for a regular checkup at 32 weeks and they said there was extra fluid in my placenta where it can be dangerous because she can tie herself up in the umbilical cord. So I am constantly monitoring her movements where before i used to just enjoy them. The ob wanted to do more testing and found out i had a recent CMV infection although i had no symptoms. It can come from toddler aged children from something as simple as a kiss. My heart was broken because i love my baby boy and we share everything. But the infection can effect Gracie in the womb. She can be born deaf, blind, have mental disabilities and even seizures. I know God has formed her im my womb and although i cried last night when i found out i prayed for Gods peace at this time. There is still a chance she can be born happy and healthy. I believe in miracles and God is in control. I would like to request not only prayers for her health but also for the peace during these last couple of weeks. That i may focus on the blessing of having children i never thought i could have but also cherish the moments of feeling her move with out constantly worrying. I did wake up this morning with an over whelming since of peace and no worrying or negative what if thoughts it was beautiful. I know these last couple of weeks will be hard to keep this attitude up but if you could please pray for my little girl and the peace of mind that i desperately need to renew daily i would greatly appreciate it. Thank you for your time and prayers. God Bless each one of you.
