Preborn baby girl’s heartbeat went undetected for weeks — then a miracle happened

Candace Gaines fetal demise

When Candace and Dennis Gaines discovered in 2007 that they were six weeks pregnant with their third child, they couldn’t have been more excited. Candace was over forty years old at the time and had tried for three to four years to have a successful pregnancy, but suffered a series of miscarriages that left her devastated.

Her husband Dennis told CBN that this pregnancy was not the same: “This time was a little bit different because we decided we were going to take God at His Word and trust Him no matter what.”

In August of 2007, when Candace was just eight weeks pregnant, she started bleeding and went to the emergency room.

“We were further along in our pregnancy than we had been with the previous miscarriages,” Candace said in an interview conducted by CBN. “So, when the initial symptoms of a miscarriage began showing up, we went to the emergency room immediately.”

According to CBN:

The lab work showed the hormone levels for pregnancy were low and the heart beat had dropped significantly.  She was sent home and told that there was nothing they could really do.  She was ordered to rest and call the doctor on Monday.

At the doctor’s office they received grim news, learning that the baby’s heartbeat could not be detected. They were told they had suffered a fetal demise. But the Gaineses said they began to pray and waited until the following Monday morning for a second ultrasound,hoping for good news. But, once again, the doctor said the heartbeat could not be detected.

Dr. Terryberry looks for fetal heartbeat

Dr. Daniel S. Terryberry told CBN, “There was no fetal cardiac activity and Candace and her husband were both adamant that they felt that this pregnancy was going to continue.” Dr. Terryberry reluctantly agreed to give the Gainses more time, but a third ultrasound two weeks later indicated that things were no better; in fact, they were worse.

“Not only was there absent cardiac activity, but the baby had not grown,” the doctor told CBN. “It was all consistent to what we know to be a miscarriage.”

Candace said that, “Just seeing the monitor where the heart should have been beating – there was nothing there. This time he showed us where a blood clot or sac had been forming underneath the fetus.”

But, again, the couple refused to give up.

This troubled their OBGYN, who was concerned that continuing a failed pregnancy might cause infection or other complications in Candace, and he scheduled a date to surgically remove the baby’s remains.

Candace Gaines concerned no fetal heartbeat

But Dennis was having second thoughts. He told CBN, “I refused to accept that this baby would not be born.”

He asked Dr. Terryberry if they could check the baby’s heartbeat one more time.

“He pulled the equipment out and he did as we had done weeks before, and miraculously, this time, there was a heartbeat.”

Candace recounted what happened next. “Dr. Terryberry almost popped out of his seat. He kept telling me, ‘Look, there is a heartbeat!”

The baby’s heart was beating at 141 beats per second, Candace said.

“All I could say was thank you Jesus, it was just total shock,” Candace added.

 

Doctor tells couple baby has heartbeat

 

Dr. Terryberry called the event, “nothing short of a miracle,” telling CBN that finding the baby had a heartbeat was “glee and pure joy. We had just witnessed a miracle.”

On April 2, 2008, Baby Grace Almez Gaines was born.

Baby Grace Miracle Baby

When Grace was three, CBN invited the Gaines family to share their story in studio.

There, the little girl’s father told CBN that seeing Grace, which he called “the face of God,”  puts him in awe every day.

Planned Parenthood describes abortion and fetal development

Posted in Fetal Development, Planned Parenthood abortion description with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on February 2, 2015 by saynsumthn

Planned Parenthood has a page on their website which details fetal development; what women can expect at various points in their pregnancy.

Planned Parenthood week to week

Weeks 5–6

The embryo is less than 1/5 inch (4–5 mm) long.
A very basic beating heart and circulatory system develop.
Buds for arms and legs develop.
The neural tube begins forming. The neural tube will later form the brain, spinal cord, and major nerves.
The bud of a tail develops.
The umbilical cord begins developing.

Weeks 9–10

The embryo develops into a fetus after 10 weeks. It is 1–1.5 inches (21–40 mm) long.
The tail disappears.
Fingers and toes are longer.
The umbilical cord connects the abdomen of the fetus to the placenta. The placenta is attached to the wall of the uterus. It absorbs nutrients from the woman’s bloodstream. The cord carries nutrients and oxygen to the fetus and takes wastes away from the fetus.

Planned Parenthood also has pages that describe abortion, although in the most minimal way.

Planned Parenthood abortion

Aspiration abortion

D+E Abortion

Apparently, according to Planned Parenthood there are two main types of abortion:

PP in clinic and d+e abortion

In Clinic Abortion and D+E abortion.

There is more than one kind of in-clinic abortion procedure. The most common is called aspiration. It is also known as vacuum aspiration. Aspiration is usually used up to 16 weeks after a woman’s last period.

“D&E – dilation and evacuation – is another kind of in-clinic abortion. D&E is usually performed later than 16 weeks after a woman’s last period.”

________________________________________________________________

Let’s intertwine Planned Parenthood’s abortion descriptions with their fetal development descriptions:

______________________________________________

ASPIRATION Abortion as described by Planned Parenthood:

A speculum will be inserted into your vagina

Your health care provider may inject a numbing medication into or near your cervix

Your health care provider may inject a numbing medication into or near your cervix

PP Fetal develop 7 to 8 weeks

The opening of your cervix may be stretched with dilators — a series of increasingly thick rods. Or you may have absorbent dilators inserted a day or a few hours before the procedure. They will absorb fluid and get bigger. This slowly stretches open your cervix. Medication may also be used with or without the dilators to help open your cervix.

PP Fetal develop 9 to 10 weeks

You will be given antibiotics to prevent infection

A tube is inserted through the cervix into the uterus

PP Fetal develop11 to 12 weeks

Either a hand-held suction device or a suction machine gently empties your uterus

PP Fetal develop 13 to 14 weeks

Sometimes, an instrument called a curette is used to remove any remaining tissue that lines the uterus. It may also be used to check that the uterus is empty. When a curette is used, people often call the abortion a D&C — dilation and curettage.

An aspiration procedure takes about 5 to 10 minutes. But more time may be needed to prepare your cervix. Time is also needed for talking with your provider about the procedure, a physical exam, reading and signing forms, and a recovery period of about one hour.

Now, we’ll look at Planned Parenthood’s description of a D+E abortion:

Exactly what is a D+E abortion?

Planned Parenthood gives a very vague description on purpose $$$$

Listen to former abortion doctor Dr. Anthony Levatino explain it here:

Thanks to ClinicQuotes.com – there is another transcript of his explanation below:

A second trimester D&E abortion is a blind procedure. The baby can be in any orientation or position inside the uterus. Picture yourself reaching in with the Sopher clamp and grasping anything you can. At twenty weeks gestation, the uterus is thin and soft so be careful not to perforate or puncture the walls. Once you have grasped something inside, squeeze on the clamp to set the jaws and pull hard – really hard. You feel something let go and out pops a fully formed leg about 4 to 5 inches long. Reach in again and grasp whatever you can. Set the jaw and pull really hard once again and out pops an arm about the same length. Reach in again and again with that clamp and tear out the spine, intestines, heart and lungs.

The toughest part of a D&E abortion is extracting the baby’s head. The head of a baby that age is about the size of a plum and is now free floating inside the uterine cavity. You can be pretty sure you have hold of it if the Sopher clamp is spread about as far as your fingers will allow. You will know you have it right when you crush down on the clamp and see a pure white gelatinous material issue from the cervix. That was the baby’s brains. You can then extract the skull pieces. If you have a really bad day like I often did, a little face may come out and stare back at you.”

Congratulations! You have just successfully performed a Suction D&E abortion. You just affirmed her right to choose. You just made $600 cash in fifteen minutes.

Life News has more descriptions here.

Below- the Planned Parenthood version: (which profits from abortion)

D&E – Dilation & Evacuation

During a D&E:

Your health care provider will examine you and check your uterus.

You will get medication for pain. You may be offered sedation or IV medication to make you more comfortable

A speculum will be inserted into your vagina

PP Fetal develop 15 to 16 weeks

PP Fetal develop 17 to 18 weeks

Your cervix will be prepared for the procedure. You may be given medication or have absorbent dilators inserted a day or a few hours before the procedure. They will absorb fluid and grow bigger. This slowly stretches open your cervix

You will be given antibiotics to prevent infection

In later second-trimester procedures, you may also need a shot through your abdomen to make sure there is fetal demise before the procedure begins

Your health care provider will inject a numbing medication into or near your cervix

PP Fetal develop 17 to 18 weeks

PP Fetal develop 19 to 20 weeks

Medical instruments and a suction machine gently empty your uterus

A D&E usually takes between 10 and 20 minutes. But more time is needed to prepare your cervix. Time is also needed for talking with your provider about the procedure, a physical exam, reading and signing forms, and a recovery period of about one hour.

PP Fetal develop 21 to 24 weeks

PP Fetal develop 25 to 28 weeks

PP Fetal develop 29 to 32 weeks

PP Fetal develop 33 to 36 weeks

PP Fetal develop 37 to 40 weeks
