My husband and I found out a little while back that we are expecting our first child. This was a bit of a surprise, though I now see where we made a mistake in using NFP (using an “iffy” day). As a result, I spent a short time after I found out really questioning God’s decision to send us a child just now, and I prayed for a miscarriage, that He “reconsider”. I did not do anything that would endanger the life of my baby; on the contrary, I did everything expecting mothers are supposed to do to ensure having a healthy baby. BUT, was praying for a miscarriage a grave sin?
(I wonder if this might have been brought on by the surprise of becoming pregnant, first trimester unstable moods that doctors warn of, etc. I no longer am worried–in fact, I’m very happy.)
