Victory over Multiple Miscarriages

Kate F from Australia writes:

Following a prolonged illness, I was having a lot of trouble conceiving. I finally fell pregnant in October but lost the baby at five weeks. An ultrasound showed that I had a condition called Poly Cystic Ovary Syndrome in a severe state and was told by the radiologist that it would be unlikely that I would be able to conceive (even though I just had) and he was unable to explain this pregnancy. Poly cystic ovaries prevent the release of the egg from the ovary. We decided to rely on God’s Word. A friend gave me the Scripture in

Exodus 23:26, “No one shall suffer miscarriage or be barren in your land; I will fulfil the number of your days”.

In March, I became pregnant with twins and despite miscarrying, the doctor couldn’t explain how an “infertile woman” had fallen pregnant with twins. I saw another specialist in November and had a suspected miscarriage shortly afterwards – he said he couldn’t do anything for me, except try hormone treatment the next time I became pregnant.

I had another two pregnancies the following year, both of which ended in miscarriage. Despite all this grief and disappointment, I was encouraged that by now I was falling pregnant very easily. As my husband Richard and I continued to believe and speak out God’s Word in the face of opposing circumstances our faith grew and this prevented discouragement coming to us. I know that whenever I got down or doubted that I had taken my eyes off God and His Word but when I repented and got my eyes back on God’s Word, my confidence would rise again. You must focus on what God has said and not on the circumstances in order to experience the supernatural in your life.

The next pregnancy went extremely well from the start and God blessed us exceedingly abundantly more than we could ask or think with our beautiful daughter Analise. Then eleven months later I became pregnant again with our son Michael. An ultrasound during his pregnancy showed that there was no sign of poly cystic ovaries. The radiologist was adamant that I must have been misdiagnosed originally – but we know that it was the miraculous healing power of God and His faithfulness to His promises in the Bible.

Conception with Endometriosis & Adhesions

Lori (USA) writes

In early 1996 I stopped taking the birth control pill when my husband and I finally decided to try to conceive. As time went on, my menstrual cycles became more and more irregular and painful. In 1998 I decided it was time to seek medical help. The doctor suspected that I had endometriosis and gave me the choice of having a laparoscopy or taking drugs to suppress my cycles. I decided to have a laparoscopy. He said he would do an HSG while I was under anaesthetic too. It turned out I did have some endometriosis, and a lot of adhesions. My tubes were open though. He lazered the endometriosis and adhesions and I was sent on my way.

In December 1998 I found New Life Ministries and joined their Internet support group, Women In Faith “WIF”. It was such a revelation that I could stand on God’s Word and take authority in it. No one had ever taught me that before. My cycles had returned to normal, and the faith of the women in WIF really built me up. In February 1999, my church had an evangelist visit and I went up for prayer one night. As she prayed for my “infertility” and laid hands on me I felt warmth in my uterine area. I believe I was wholly healed of endometriosis that night. Then in April, after 6 months, I wasn’t pregnant yet, and I was very discouraged. In May 1999, unbeknown to us, our daughter was conceived. When my period was to come I had some spotting but never got my actual period. Since I had been having regular cycles I took a test, and it confirmed what I knew in my heart, I was pregnant! After waiting so long I could hardly believe it. I had no morning sickness at all during my first trimester, I was just physically tired.

In July 1999 I went to a women’s conference with some ladies from my church. I was 12 weeks pregnant. On the last day of the conference as we were leaving I felt strange and decided to take a trip to the bathroom. I panicked when I saw bright red blood. I grabbed my friends and said I needed to go to the emergency room. Before we left they settled me down and prayed for me. All I could think as we were driving to see my doctor was “I trust you Lord”. By the time we got to my doctor’s office the bleeding had slowed down. He ordered an ultrasound. The results showed that the baby was fine, but I had a tear in the placenta and it was laying near my cervix. I was ordered on bedrest for the weekend. I never had any problems after that, and the rest of my pregnancy was wonderful. I loved being pregnant; the time went too fast.

In January 2000, at 38 weeks, my baby was in a breech position. The doctor and I decided they would try to turn the baby and scheduled me for later that week. The doctor tried 3 times to turn the baby but to no avail, and scheduled me for a c-section the next week. At first I was disappointed that I wasn’t going to have a natural birth and be able to give God glory. The c-section went very smoothly. They discovered I have a bicornuate uterus. It’s a birth defect in which the uterus is misshaped and can cause miscarriage if the embryo implants in a bad area. Why the doctors didn’t catch it during the laparoscopy/HSg or on the ultrasound is beyond me. From what information I have found on bicornuate uteruses I feel so blessed and loved by God for my daughter. My recovery from the c-section surgery was easy to say the least. I had NO pain anytime afterward. Compared to the laparoscopy the recovery was 10 times easier. God’s hand definitely was on me then and I do give him the glory the pain free recovery I had.

Miracle Conception after Cancer & Chemotherapy

Roz from Australia writes…

The point of the journey isn’t only the destination it’s what you learn along the way.

After deciding to move interstate to QLD I found out I was pregnant with my second child. While I was in my last week at work during a routine 20-wk pg check up, Dr Stephen Raymond, announced I had an abnormal pregnancy.  There was no baby even though I looked and felt very pregnant. I had a “hydatiform mole” (molar pregnancy). What happens after conception is that the baby eventually dies and a sack grows in the womb, which looks just like a bunch of grapes. The pregnancy had to be terminated immediately. I had to go to hospital that night for a curette.  I was numb. That was just the beginning….

After the procedure, the doctors told me that the pregnancy was cancerous and had to start chemotherapy immediately. I felt very alone and the only source of strength I could find was to pray. I wasn’t particularly spiritual, I believed in God, but was very ignorant of anything after that.

We decided to continue on with our move as planned.  So we drove to Queensland and I had to go straight to the hospital and start chemotherapy the very day we arrived. I met with a wonderful doctor called Dr Hitchens.  He told me that my condition was very rare in Australia. Only 1% of pregnancies in Australia experience this, and only a few of them are cancerous. I then had to go into the hospital every day at exactly the same time to receive treatment. But week after week, nothing was really happening because the drug didn’t seem to be doing its job.

We soon found a great local church which taught about Jesus being our healer. I was hungry to learn and I saturated myself in this information.  I also had the opportunity to go to a Christian Conference and I learnt that Jesus Christ is still alive today. I also learnt that I could just simply cry out to him and if I believed the bible and did not doubt that I could receive my healing right now – here today. I grabbed hold of that and confessed it and stood firm.  I wouldn’t accept the fact that God had given me a beautiful baby boy and husband only to be told I was going to die.  I knew that he wanted me to stand firm and believe for healing. And that is exactly what I did.

The days turned into weeks, the weeks turned into months but I just knew, that I knew, that I would receive healing. However, one weekend while we were out at lunch I had a haemorrhage and was rushed to hospital.  I ended up having three blood transfusions and more drugs.  But even through all of this I just knew I was going to be OK.  A supernatural peace was with me continually.

I then had to go to the hospital a couple of times a week to receive chemotherapy. This went on for several weeks – going to the hospital then to the pathology lab to check my blood hormone levels to see if the chemotherapy was working. Then in addition to this I had to visit the specialist to explain my progress. These weekly visits were very expensive and we weren’t covered for any of it. This was a very testing time for us in more ways than one!  During one of the visits to the specialist he announced that the tumour had started growing through to other organs in my body.  I was then admitted into hospital to have extensive chemotherapy.  The strongest type available!  I was told that the side effects were nausea, hair loss and fatigue.  After the treatment I was sent home with anti nausea medicine to rest for a few days with my family. The amazing thing was that we prayed that not only would I be totally healed but that I would not experience any sickness.  I never had to take any of the nausea pills.  While I felt tired and had a horrible metallic taste in my mouth and my mouth and eyes dried out from the medication, I never got sick.  Praise the Lord!

Then one Sunday at church during the praise and worship I had another massive haemorrhage and was rushed to hospital. The whole back seat of the car was completely soaked in blood, and the stain is still there to this day.  Once at the hospital in the emergency room, all I can remember was seeing buckets full of blood and clots, and then I passed out.  My husband and a close friend were also in the room with me.  On this occasion I died because the heart monitor flat lined.   At that point my husband was asked to leave the room.  But he along with a friend prayed and the Dr’s managed to get my pulse back.  I was then given more blood transfusions.  What happened next was amazing. When I was tested to see how the cancer levels were going the doctors were amazed because the tumour had gone! The tumour had extracted itself out of my body.  The Dr’s were stunned because they had never seen this before. It was unheard of.  Even though the tumour was gone I had to continue with the chemotherapy because my blood still had traces of cancer.  However, I continued treatment for only a short time as the levels quickly dropped to zero.

After all of this was over, the Dr’s asked us to go to The Royal Women’s Hospital in Brisbane where we were introduced to a panel of the top oncology doctors in the area.  They wanted to know why this happened, as they had never seen anything like this before. They were very perplexed because what had happened was medically impossible. My husband explained that we were Christians who believed in a healing Jesus. They were stunned and said ‘Well your God is bigger than our medicine’.  After scratching their heads and asking several questions they let us go home.

My testimony doesn’t end there!  Even though I was completely healed and well I still had to go back to Dr Hickens for my final report. He told me on that day, “well you may be healed, and you are a very lucky girl, however you will never have children”.  This was because I had been treated with the strongest type of chemotherapy available.  And this meant that my reproduction organs would never work again.  Regardless, we knew that our God was bigger than that!   So needless to say we didn’t believe what the doctor said. We just smiled and shook that comment off.  And to the doctors total amazement I was found to be pregnant a few months later.   I then went on to have a beautiful healthy baby boy called Matt which means (a gift from God), and then fifteen months later we had our final baby ‘Charlie’ also a beautiful healthy baby boy.  He has been a great blessing to our family and both boys to this day are very close.

Jesus said “I tell you the truth, anyone who has faith in me will do what I have been doing. He will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Son may bring glory to the Father. You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.” (see John 14:12-14).  The authority of Jesus has been passed down to us so we can pray for the Holy Spirit to help us for whatever need we have. If you believe and do not doubt in your heart then you will receive your promise if it lines up with the word of God. That is a promise in the bible, (see Mark 11:22-25).  God is not a respecter of persons (see Acts 10:34) so that means that anyone of His children can trust His word for their own personal circumstances and see it come to pass!

Conception after healed from Guilt

Sylvett P writes

I was blessed to find myself pregnant after being a member of WIF online support group for a short period of time. I suffered with guilt associated with my infertility as I thought I was being punished for sins. With the help of other WIF members, I was able to remove the blockage and to gain the knowledge that I was already healed and just needed to be faithful and that it was God’s will for ALL women to conceive their own biological children – I would meditate on Gods Word and remain faithful, and it was at the point I became pregnant! And early Father’s Day, 17 June, I gave birth to our son, Christopher Shane. He was 21 inches and weighed 7 lb 1 oz. He is beautiful and a joy to his father and me.

Miracle Baby Samuel

Brandi writes: My husband and I lost our first baby at 9 weeks. It then took 3 years to conceive. I thought we had given it to God a long time ago, but I was still relying on man in some ways – medicines to regulate my ovulation, etc. I finally gave up on man after he gave up on me and the doctor said the only way I would get pregnant would be to do IVF. I decided that my God was bigger than that, and He proved true! My husband began laying hands on me and praying for my body to function according to God’s perfect plan. Within 2 weeks of prayer, I ovulated and conceived! It was truly a miracle!!  Samuel (which means ‘asked of God’) arrived 9 April  at 2.45 pm, weighing 7 lb 5 oz and 20 inches long.  Just to encourage you – lift up your very specific prayer requests and watch God honour them in greater detail than you can ever think to provide!!

First child at 45 years

Viviene (UK) writes:

My sister-in-law gave birth 13 July – a healthy baby girl of 6.5 lb. It is amazing what God can do. She was 45 years old last December and this is her first baby. She had been diagnosed with a high prolactin level. The doctors put her on some medication which had really bad side effects so she came off it. Anyway, when she got pregnant, they found that she had fibroids and were talking about the baby coming very early with a strong possibility of a C-section. Well, she had the baby at 38 weeks – they actually had to induce her. She also had the baby naturally. She had a very quick labour which was not what the doctors had told her.

Cysts Disappeared

I have posted below 2 testimonies on cysts disappearing. I pray these testimonies will be a blessing to you and encourage you to not give up hope.

Ify E writes:

Praise the Lord with me for His mercies and goodness endureth forever. I asked for prayer against a 7.8cm ovarian cyst last October. I went for a scan today and the cyst has disappeared. I did not take any medicine nor did I do surgery.  The Lord is good and He does wonders. He’ll do same for all that we desire and ask of Him.

Albertina S writes:

Dear sisters, an encouragement to all with cysts: I remember speaking to someone about cysts recently (Ify) and saying that I had 7 of them 4 on one ovary and 3 on the other and they were big… Well, this is just to let you know that I am coming from the Dr. and the sonar showed that they are all gone. My ovaries are back to normal shape. Praise be to God.

Pregnant after Endometriosis

Verli from Indonesia, writes:

To make my email short, last Tuesday my doctor confirmed that I am pregnant. Thank God, I am 6 weeks pregnant. Finally, God answer our prayers just in the right time, close to our 6 years wedding anniversary (next October). It is such a miracle for us. About 6 months ago, one doctor that told us if we only had 3% of chance to get pregnant without any operation ( I was diagnosed with endometriosis). He suggested a laparoscopy & GnRH agonists treatment for 6 months (3 months prior to surgery and 3 month after the surgery). And he also said that during the treatment, that there was no hope for me to be pregnant. It was a devastating situation for us. However, I didn’t have any surgery. Beyond all our understanding, God make a way where there seems to be no way. Praise the lord.

Healed from Depression and Back Pain

Rosnah from the UK writes…

I was married 4 years ago and tried for a baby for 3 years.  I am now 24 weeks pregnant.  We never found out if we had a medically diagnosed problem because I was led to Nerida’s teaching just as we were thinking of starting the process of tests.  But I can testify to miraculous physical healing of depression and a chronic back condition, as well as conceiving.  I just want to encourage you from my experience that nothing is impossible – including coming back from the lowest of low mental and physical states and seeing all your heart’s desires fulfilled.  We have a high priest in Jesus who sympathises with our weaknesses as he was tempted in every way we are, only he did not sin (Heb 4:15). Also Isaiah 42 says that Jesus was not disheartened or crushed and it this Spirit that He sends to comfort and uphold us.

Healed from Headaches

Hwee L from Singapore writes…

I have chronic headaches since I was less than 10. It got worse in my 30s as I am plagued with severe headache before my ovulation and period. The one thing I never leave home without is my  advil pain killers. I never dared to go without the painkillers even when I prayed to God for relief. In fact, at one point, I gave up  because I realised the more I pray to God for relief, the worse the  pain gets!

Lately, since I have been on this online support group WIF, hearing how one of the sisters sharing about being a little commander, commanding sickness out of her body, i did the same too. Each time I feel the ache coming, i commanded it to go away. One day, I took the step of faith and said  I will not take my pain killer. I will see how long I can sustain  the pain. Praise be to the Lord, the pain went away after I  commanded it too, it was not immediate. It took quite a while before it did. But bottom line is that it DID!  I am so happy to share that I did not have any headache this month  before my ovulation nor period. In fact, I am having my period now.  Of course, disappointment follows the period (as it means i am not pregnant), but I remind myself of this battle that has been won for me, and am sure the one for my babies will come to pass too.
