It's Not Too Bad

This is my fourth pregnancy.  The first three really weren't bad.  I had the usual things like nausea and some vomiting and I was uncomfortable.  With all of those pregnancies I was ready to be done early.  I just willed wanted those babies to come out early and they all did at 2 weeks, 10 days and 6 days respectively.

This time it is different.  I am not at all ready to be done being pregnant.  I don't want this baby to come early.  I am cherishing this little one being in my tummy.  I am enjoying taking it a little easier and having my other children be able to put their hands on my tummy to feel the baby move.  I love hearing my 3 year old ask, "Is the baby moving?  Is she sleeping?".  Oh my, it is a precious time.

I am pretty sure this will probably, most likely be my last pregnancy.  And it has been three years since my last one.  I think I am slightly older and wiser and I don't wish these days away because they are so few.  I know it can be miserable towards the end of pregnancy and yes, I do have heartburn and yes I have to pee 15 times a night but I still am more content than I have ever been with all my other pregnancies.  I am sure it is a prayer answered.  I am sure it is a God-given calmness and peace.

Whatever it is I will take it gladly.  I will be thankful for the time I have left and when this time is over I will be utterly amazed that once again, God has blessed us with a precious little one that we have the privilege of raising.

    All right - a week shy of being a 3 year old - a 2 and 3/4 quarters plus almost a quarter - year old. But that really just seemed too wordy.

  2. I'm glad are cherishing this time. your baby is so blessed to have you for a mommy.
