I’m 31 weeks pregnant which leaves me with a few thoughts, things I knew about pregnancy from before, things I know about having children, and the other side–the things I don’t know.
What I don’t know:
What I do know:
Who the father is 😉
We’ll love this baby
I’m no good at being pregnant
I am not one of those who gains only 15pds and loses it within 3 days of birthing or look like Angelina Jolie in this movie.
The baby will nurse–it will hurt for a bit.
Some women can’t have babies easily–I am fortunate.
Some women don’t get sick–they are fortunate.
If it’s up to me, I doubt I will do this again.
What I want for this baby is much different than what I thought I wanted for my first.
It will be born at home.
We will be ok.
Our family will be fuller and I’ll feel again the way I did when we had our first family movie night after Leviah was born–that more is better, and going back would feel empty.
You covered me in my mother’s womb.
14 … Marvelous are Your works,
And that my soul knows very well.”
I take comfort in verses like these while we wait.
