Sometimes I get a little overwhelmed just thinking about the fact that I have a little life growing inside of me. I never thought I would get to experience this, especially after our miscarriage. I started thinking that maybe having a biological child just wasn’t in God’s plan for me. But every time I would think that I would dismiss it because I knew God didn’t place this desire in me for no reason. It just took a little while longer than I thought it would for it to come to fruition.
I am not writing these updates to hurt anyone. Trust me. I know what it is like to want to be pregnant so badly but you for some reason aren’t but everyone around you seems to be announcing their babies.
I know what is it like for people to ask, “So when are you having one?” and you try to smile and just said something like you don’t know and end the conversation.
I know what it is like to gain a little weight and have people ask if that’s a baby bump and you just try to shrug it off by saying you had one too many donuts.
I know what it is like to give up all hope.
But I also know that I serve a God that is still in the miracle business.
So I am sharing what the Lord has done for me to try to encourage you that He can also do it for you.
I have not done a good job of writing updates on my blog and am hoping to change that. I am trying to document as much as possible because this will probably be our only child.
I am actually 13 weeks and 2 days today, and I cannot believe the 1st trimester is almost over!
The past week has been pretty good with not a lot of changes other than a little bit of growth. I have found that I love the Time and Tru maternity leggings from Walmart. They are super comfy so thank you to all those that recommended them.
My Pharmedoc body pillow came in this past Friday and I love it!! It definitely helps me stay sleeping in the right position at night.
I have noticed that I am hitting the tired stage again and I have been falling asleep on the couch pretty early the past few days. I am still doing my workouts, but my energy is starting to go down. I am hoping that it picks back up a bit in the next week or so. I feel so bad falling asleep while I’m trying to watch shows with my husband and he is just left by himself. I have so many to catch up on because I’ve missed them! Ha!
The baby is now the size of a jalapeno. We go back to the doctor for a check-up and to hear the heartbeat in 2 weeks. I could be crazy but sometimes I think I can feel it moving…if not…something weird is going on in there 😂
My Ovia app said the baby now has fingerprints and hair growing all over the body to keep the cheesy white stuff in place that helps keep the skin from drying out while it is in the womb.
Praying for YOU
For all of those out there still praying for their little miracles, know that I’m praying right along with you. ❤
