Is it too early to call this the ‘early Spring’ thread? Wishful thinking? wink

Praying at this time especially for:
amberlight – for strength to cope with those who would campaign against those with ASDs; and, in contrast, giving thanks for her work in raising awareness of the needs of people with autism;
BabyBeatrice and her family – for healing and fortitude as they deal with Beatrice’s illness;
BlackEyedSusan – for health and strength for her; for an easier time at school for her children; and for her mum to feel more settled;
BlueTinkerbell – giving thanks for her baby DD; and praying for her as she explores her vocation;
charlottecollinsislost – for her to know more certainty in her difficult relationship situation;
DoctorAnge – for health for her little girl;
Dontsteponthemomeraths – for her DS as he is referred to the community paediatrician; for her ‘LM’ as he tries to establish contact with his children; for her brother to regain full use of his thumb, following an accident;
DutchOma and Bob – for health for Bob and for him to feel at ease in his new ; and for Oma to feel supported as she cares for him day-to-day;
FlatsInDagenham – for the family and friends of her colleague, who died recently; for her SIL who has cancer; and for her brother and their family;
GingerCurl – for the successful and (relatively) stress-free completion of her thesis;
HaveALittleFaith – for health and happiness as she nears the end of her pregnancy;
jann2013 – for her health; for an easier relationship with her ex; and for her to feel accepted at her church following the break-up of her relationship;
Kaykat – for her and her DS to know peace and happiness as they emerge from an abusive relationship;
MadHairDay - for her continued good health; and for her whole family and their mission, that they will find the resources (financial, practical, spiritual, whatever) that they need to grow and flourish;
PositiveAttitude – for her mission overseas; and especially for her DD1 who has been going through some tough times and may soon be spending some time abroad with her parents; for happiness for the whole Attitude family; also for PA’s mum who has Alzheimer’s; and prayers of thanks for the birth of PA’s baby great-nephew;
raininginbaltimore – for healing for her broken foot; for health for her baby girl who has terrible reflux; and for her financial situation to improve;
Roomforalittleone - for her hyperemesis to ease and for her house sale to go through smoothly, easing her family’s financial anxieties;
Teahouse – for healing following her TVT operation;
waitingtobeamummy – for her to feel closer to God following a series of difficult situations, and in the meantime for her to feel our prayers supporting her;
...and for all who post on this thread, for those who lurk, for occasional visitors, and for those known to us who are in need of prayer, whether mentioned here or not.

Lord, in Your mercy, hear our prayers.

Hello, I didn't know you existed smile A very kind lady pm'd me as she found me struggling on a thread I started plus I was getting flamed by the haters

I won't go through my other thread issues but I would very much appreciate prayer for my first (and last) cycle of IVF in the Czech Republic in June. I am (almost) 42 and using donor eggs as I miscarried last year and I have a blocked tube and I'm running out of time with very little money. Please pray that, if we do not end up with a baby, that God will not leave me devastated and that I will see a glimpse perhaps of an even greater happiness? I'm afraid I have made this baby an 'idol' for which I am ashamed. I worry I won't be blessed because of this.

Thank you for listening.

I started a new thread, as I could see that this one was getting unwieldy for some. Here's a link.

Thank you for the updates, Oma. Continuing to pray for Room and her baby.

HavingALittleFaithBaby Sat 13-Apr-13 17:44:21

Oh bless her confused. Still praying! Thanks for the update DO.

Update from Roomforalittleone

"So, after a dramatic nine hours of increasingly strong and very regular contractions (and the whole neonatal team rearranging the delivery room) my contractions stopped for a bit and I got a bit of sleep... Contractions have re-started so maybe baby today or maybe not. No idea when I'll next update or what that update will be..."

Let's keep praying girls...

praying room.

Update from Roomforalittleone

Our good news today is dd2 got a place at our/her first choice school! At least we don't have to faff about with sorting that out :-)

Baby is still happily inside me. I'm having intermittent contractions but I now only have 12 hours left on the drugs to stop contractions. After that they will not try to stop my labour. Baby looks to be a good size on ultrasound which significantly increases chances of a good outcome. It's still very much wait and see what happens. We may have a baby soon or it could be a few weeks before he/she puts in an appearance.

Keeping praying, Room, glad things have settled down for now.

Tuo Fri 12-Apr-13 11:47:44

Just back from my holidays, and feeling a bit woozy and jet-lagged after no sleep at all on the plane last night. But popping by to pray for Room and the baby... praying that you stay well, Room, and that baby stays in there for as long as possible. Will be back later when I'm a bit more organised.

Kaykat Fri 12-Apr-13 11:31:10

Praying for you and baby, Room x

Prayers room

and for yout too mome...

HavingALittleFaithBaby Fri 12-Apr-13 09:13:18

Oh Room praying for that baby to stay put!

cloutiedumpling Fri 12-Apr-13 09:10:43

Praying for you and the little one

So contractions are starting for a while then stopping for a while. Neonatal doc was great. It's a case of wait and see now. They expect me to deliver preterm but that could still be weeks away. Ideally baby needs to stay in until lunch time on Saturday at least to be 24 hours post steroids then they'll stop the drip that is trying to stop my contractions. Then we wait... The best people seem to be hoping for is 32 weeks...

Prayers from me too

Dutchoma Thu 11-Apr-13 18:59:34

madhairday Thu 11-Apr-13 17:45:22

praying, praying, praying....

HavingALittleFaithBaby Thu 11-Apr-13 17:31:32

Oh Room! Praying fervently that it all stops.

Oh my! I am praying praying praying x

Emergency prayer request: I'm on delivery suite being treated for pre-term labour. I'm 27 weeks. Contractions had stopped but are starting again. Please pray! Phone is going back off now but I'll try and update at some point.

cloutiedumpling Thu 11-Apr-13 11:33:40

Lurking and praying. Praying and lurking.

madhairday Thu 11-Apr-13 10:37:58

Praying muchly, Room. x

Dutchoma Thu 11-Apr-13 10:06:43

Oh Littleone that is a worrying situation. I am praying for an 'angel' to come to your aid, someone who will take over from you for a bit so you can rest. Think back if there is anybody who has said:"Let me know if there is anything you need," and ring them. Maybe they can't help now, but maybe they can just lend you a hand when you need it most.

HavingALittleFaithBaby Thu 11-Apr-13 09:40:39

Praying Room. Can you do the shop online and get it delivered? I've been doing that recently. Makes life so much easier when you're pregnant!

Praying into that situation Mome. I appreciate you can't give too much detail but figure The Lord knows all the details so just praying into it.
