Being Pregnant

     I wanted to end my days of Thankful posts this month with the one I'm probably most excited about.  Although, I must say, I'm pretty ready to meet our daughter instead of housing her.  :)  I'm continuously amazed at how much bigger my belly is getting, which of course, is a reflection of how much bigger she is getting.  Oh dear.  In only a few short months we'll be holding her in our arms and seeing just how big she is.






     I'm already bigger than I am in that picture.  Sometimes I think that it's all happening so fast, but then when I reflect on how long it took us to get here, I remember how those months passed so slowly.  My Heavenly Father has been so good to us and hindsight has helped me to appreciate the blessing we had to enjoy our marriage with just the two of us.  Even more now than before.  It's also allowed us to appreciate what a gift it is that we are being given on an even deeper level.  I believe that had we had children when I wanted we never would be able to have experiences that needed to grow and become better.  It's a little easier for me to empathize with those struggle with infertility (though I don't pretend to be an expert of any one person's situation and experience).  The time I struggled with it helped to test my faith and show me how weak I really am and that through my Heavenly Father, true miracles take place.  Now that I am pregnant, though it challenges me in different ways, I'm so grateful to be able to know I can have children and that we are chosen to have this child come to us first.  I hope we live up to the job.  I'm looking forward to getting to know this little spirit and understand who she is as a person.

I'm thankful to Be Pregnant because it's just one more way the Lord has shown his love for me.

     As a side note, my sister-in-law, Cecilia gave birth to their twin boys on Monday, November 28th, and she is amazing and wonderful, having done it completely natural.  Her birth story is written on her blog found here.

  1. I am SO happy you are pregnant. I am incredibly grateful that you we were able to be pregnant together. It was great having a sister(in-law) who can understand what it's like to be tired and miserable. Haha. I also enjoy movie watching while pregnant :) It works out nicely. We'll have to find an excuse to sit around and watch movies next reunion. Hehe.
