Default We're having twins !!!

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

After a gut-wrenching 2-1/2 years of trying to become pregnant (including 2 miscarriages), my wife and I found out last Wednesday that we are having twins. We are now 8 weeks and 2 days pregnant. To say that we were ecstatic is an understatement. The Lord works in mysterious ways. After all of the hardships we have experienced, this was truly a day of joy.

Now comes the hard part. Obviously with twins come many more complications. Also, being my curious self, I went online to read about twins, and read about VTS (Vanishing Twin Syndrome). This is where one twin can be absorbed by either the other twin, or by the mother. My mind is racing with potential dangers along the way - I think this has happened because of the miscarriages from last year.

Please pray for us to have a successful and healthy pregnancy for both babies, and that both are born healthy. Also prayer for wife and me to have peace of mind.

Yours Sincerely in Christ,
BC

Big BC, how wonderful! Now let me tell you, I've seen gazillions of TLC TV programs that mention this "twin absorption" thing, but they quickly note that it is soooooo very rare. Like, you know, you have a bigger chance of getting struck by lightening, etc. Pray to Our Lady to take these troubling thoughts away from you. Also, here is a prayer to St. Gerard for a safe pregnancy and delivery:

O great Saint Gerard, beloved servant of Jesus Christ, perfect imitator of your meek and humble Savior, and devoted child of the Mother of God, enkindle within my heart one spark of that heavenly fire of charity which glowed in your heart and made you an angel of love. O glorious Saint Gerard, because when falsely accused of crime, you did bear, like your Divine Master, without murmur or complaint, the calumnies of wicked men, you have been raised up by God as the patron and protector of expectant mothers. Preserve her from danger and from the excessive pains accompanying childbirth, and shield the child which she now carries, that it may see the light of day and receive the purifying and life-giving waters of baptism through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Father Almighty, I pray for the pregnancy of Big BC's wife. May the pregnancy be uneventful and the twins be healthy. Thank You, Lord, for this wonderful gift you have given them. St. Gianna, pray for them. AMEN.

Memorare (Prayer to Our Lady)
Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to your protection, implored your help, or sought your intercession, was left unaided.
Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto you, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother. To you do I come, before you I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in your mercy, hear and answer me. Amen
