Might be pregnant and scared to death

Wife is at the doctor’s office now for constant exhaustion. They are currently administering tests to determine if she’s pregnant.

We are both scared because we still live in an apartment, and are unsure if we would be capable parents. Also in the event she is pregnant, we are concerned about baby and mother health. As you can imagine this is quite a shock for all involved.

Please say any prayer you know that may be of kindness for us.

Thank you :o

Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thine intercession was left unaided.
Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, my mother; to thee do I come, before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer me.

Amen.

Praying for your intentions.
I would not worry too much though because you would probably be wonderful parents.

Our Father who art in heaven
Hallowed be thy name
Thy kingdom come
Thy will be done
On earth as it is in heaven
Give us this day our daily bread
Forgive us our trespasses
As we forgive those who trespass against us
Lead us not into temptation
But deliver us from evil
Amen

Praying for the intentions of you & your wife.

Praying hard.

Praying very hard for you and your wife and if your wife is pregnant I am sure you and your wife would be wonderful parents.

Divine Mercy
Jesus, I trust in you.

I’ll pray for you & your wife but there is no reason to be “scared to death.”

You don’t have to be rich or have a house to bring up a baby. You will get plenty of gifts for the baby from family & friends.

The baby’s & your wife’s health will be watched by the doctor & by God. So think positive thoughts. :thumbsup:

Hey. I think True To Faith has this right. No need to be afraid. Just take one day at a time. You’re not expecting a monster. You’re maybe (hopefully?) expecting a baby. They’re cute. But loud. And take a lot of time. But they’re a combination of you both. So they’re kind of the tie that binds. That stuff.

But anyway. I’m gonna pray a bit here. But I don’t know if you want me to. I mean I’m gonna pray that you get happy. And that you’ll be especially happy to find out you’re expecting. Because that’s just the kind of guy I am. Sorry.

Peace. And good luck!

Saint Michael, the archangel, defend us in battle, be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the devil, may God rebuke him, we humbly pray. And do you, O’ Prince of the Heavenly host, by the power of God thrust into Hell Satan and all the other evil spirits who prowl about the world for the ruin of souls.

Amen.

Our Father who art in Heaven, hallowed be thy name.

Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread.

And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.

And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.

Amen.

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee.

Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb Jesus.

Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death.

Amen.

Prayer to Our Lady of Mental Peace

O Lady of Mental Peace,
Mother of Tranquility
and Mother of Hope,
look upon punisherthunder in this time
of weakness and unrest.

Teach her searching heart
to know that God’s Love
for her is unchanging and
unchangeable, and, that
true human love can only
begin and grow by touching
His Love.

Let your gentle Peace -
which this world cannot give

  • be always with her.
    And, help her to bring this
    same Peace into the lives
    of others.

Our Lady of Mental Peace,

  • Pray for us!
    Amen.

Jesus, Help Me!

In every need let me come to You with humble trust,
saying:
Jesus, help me!
In all my doubts, perplexities, and temptations:
Jesus, help me!
In hours of loneliness, weariness and trials:
Jesus, help me!
In the failure of my plans and hopes, in disappointments,
troubles and sorrows:
Jesus, help me!
When others fail me, and Your Grace alone can assist me:
Jesus, help me!
When I throw myself on Your tender Love as Savior:
Jesus, help me!
When my heart is cast down by failure, at seeing no good
come from my efforts:
Jesus, help me!
When I feel impatient, and my cross irritates me:
Jesus, help me!
When I am ill, and my head and hands cannot work and
I am lonely:
Jesus, help me!

Always, always, in spite of weakness, falls and short-
comings of every kind:
Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, help me and never forsake me!

Amen

You’ll be okay. I’m sure you and your wife will be great parents. I know you’re nervous, but don’t sell yourself short! As for your housing situation: A lot of people have children and live in apartments. St. Bernadette’s family home was a former jail that was deemed to be unfit for prisoners. However, that’s all her father could afford. God’s Son was born in a stable. You’ll be fine! If you and your wife are expecting, I’m going to say Congrats and that I’m praying for all three of you!

God Bless!

Praying that you both have inner peace and strength to follow God’s will for you, whatever that may be…

Prayer to St. Therese of the Child Jesus

O Little Therese of the Child Jesus,
Please pick a rose for me
From the heavenly gardens
And send it to me
As a message of love.

O little flower of Jesus,
Ask God today to grant the favors
I now place with confidence
In your hands.

St. Therese,
help me to always believe,
As you did,
In God’s great love for me,
So that I might imitate your
“Little Way” each day. Amen.

St. Therese, pray for us!

It is very “scary” your whole life changes I felt the same way ! Its so natural … the love and protection you have for your children that “scary” goes away almost instantly . I think I just learned something from saying that myself so thank you for posting !

Whatever the outcome is, think positive, capable parenthood comes with the grace of God, I will pray for you and your wife.

Hail Mary full of grace the Lord is with thee,
blessed are thou among women
and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.

Holy Mary, Mother of God
pray for us sinners now
and at the hour of our death.

Amen.

Praying for you and your intentions.

Awwe - I’ll say a prayer, but don’t be scared. I remember when i was pregnant with my son, i was terrified, not ready, afraid there would be something wrong since I wasn’t on prenatal vitamins, etc. All was well, and he is the light of my life. Couldn’t imagine my life without him! Keep us posted!

Angel of God, my Guardian dear,
to whom God’s love commits me here,
ever this day be at my side,
to light and guard, to rule and guide.
Amen.

Praying for you and your wife on the Feast of the Guardian Angels…

*O most beautiful Flower of Mount Carmel, Fruitful Vine, Splendor of Heaven, who brought forth the Son of God still remaining a Virgin, assist us in this necessity. O Star of the Sea, help us, and show us that you are our Mother.

O Holy Mary, Mother of God, Queen of Heaven and earth, we humbly ask you from the depths of our heart to help us in this necessity. There are none who can withstand your power. O show us that you are our Mother.

O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee. *Sweet Mother, we place this cause in your hands. Amen
