Almost 11 weeks

Tomorrow, I’ll be 11 wks. The nausea is still in full force. For a few days, I thought maybe it was decreasing a little bit. In the back of my mind, I thought, hmmm, I remember with other pregnancies a lull at certain times, only to be hit with the nausea with a vengeance after a short respite. Well, indeed, that is what has occurred. I still try to remember (and be incredibly thankful) that this is nothing like my first and by far, hardest pregnancy. I was not only nauseous 24/7, but I was vomiting around the clock, too! It.was.miserable. And, I was working. I do not know how I did it honestly. But, I lived, and went on to have more babies. So, I know that I will make it through this as well. I have managed to avoid vomiting with this pregnancy. Praises!

We are not overcome with fear. We are trusting and believing that this sweet baby will be in our arms with us, healthy and happy. There is just a slight underlying anxiety that I try not to think of. We are so in love, but I honestly think at times, I might be slightly detached. Kind of like I’m not really pregnant. It’s just this natural self-protective mechanism that I’m not fully in control of. But, most of the time, I am planning in my head for the end of the summer when we welcome this baby! God has a plan for this baby in our family. I’m believing that.

My belly certainly is showing that I am pregnant. Depending on what I’m wearing, it can be masked (not that I’m trying to), but I have not had to bust out the maternity clothes yet. Yoga pants and sweatshirts are perfectly fine for now. That is what I wear non-pregnant, too! HA!

My 1st official prenatal appointment is scheduled to be a week from Thursday (could be rescheduled if mommies are in labor then). I’ve seen my midwife plenty of times already and have had several ultrasounds, but we haven’t done an official laying on of hands, listening with doppler, intake bloodwork visit. That’s what that one will be.

For now, we pray. We live each day, working on our trust and faith in our God. Thank you for joining us on this journey.
