Sad News

Turns out little squiggles didn’t make it.  We thought we were at 7 weeks last week when we went to the doctor.  The ultrasound showed that we were at 5 weeks.  Yesterday we went back for a second ultrasound, and the gestational sac was still at 5 weeks without a heartbeat.  Although are hearts are broken and it saddens us deeply, I have found comfort through bonding with my husband, prayer and  through reading scripture. Yesterday I sat outside feeling the warmth of the sun, and the cool breeze, I read 2 Corinthians 1:3-7 where Paul writes:

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, 4who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God. 5For just as the sufferings of Christ flow over into our lives, so also through Christ our comfort overflows. 6If we are distressed, it is for your comfort and salvation; if we are comforted, it is for your comfort, which produces in you patient endurance of the same sufferings we suffer. 7And our hope for you is firm, because we know that just as you share in our sufferings, so also you share in our comfort.

In that scripture I find peace in knowing that Jesus understands our suffering and that he provides us comfort so that we can help others find comfort through him  (when others go through situations such as this).  We have had such an outpouring of support from friends and family and I am so thankful for that.  I also am hopeful that one day in God’s timing (NOT MINE) that he will provide us with a child.

  1. Sharon,

    Our hearts break for you guys. Jennifer and I have experienced two miscarriages. Although we still do not understand it all, we know that God is faithful. After 2 miscarriages and 3 very troubled pregnancies, we can still say, “God never forgot us.”

    God is with you and we are praying for you.


  2. Sharon, I’m so sorry to hear about this. Spence just told me this morning. I know that you will be blessed with a child in due time. We love both you and Dan and are here if you need us. 🙂


  3. Sharon, Know you are in my thoughts & prayers. Let me know if you need anything at all!! We missed you last night. I hope you are feeling better!!


  4. I found your blog from Ginger’s, and although I don’t know you, I had to tell you that my heart is breaking for you. Miscarriage is such a difficult trial to go through. I pray that you will know the comfort of the Great Physician. I’ll be praying for you as you heal.


  5. Hi, I know you don’t know me, but I just stumbled across your blog as I was looking for some comfort/advice as I am just going through a miscarriage myself. I was so struck by what you wrote, first of all because what happened to you is EXACTLY how it happened to me, meaning I was at 7 weeks, but my ultrasound was only at 5 weeks and no heartbeat. But I was also encouraged by your scripture as I am also a Christian.
    Thank you for sharing and just know that with Christ, we can get through this!
