I am almost at the 20 week mark in my pregnancy. That means halfway there---wow! This pregnancy is going by fast. I hardly feel pregnant. I am growing-- in the belly and other areas -- Ha ha ha. But this time I really don't even feel much discomfort of being pregnant. God has truly blessed me and answered my prayers.
I remember with the other pregnancies I would sit and complain about everything. I would say--I am tired; I feel fat; I have back pains; I feel sick; etc... I can go on. Now when people ask how I am feeling, I say---I feel great!!! I also remember how I couldn't wait for my due date to arrive. Now I am just living life and enjoying every moment of being pregnant.
This baby is very calm and quiet. I remember with Tsavah and Kole my third and sixth, they were jumping all over the place. This little one is so calm, I hardly notice the baby there. This is another reason why I feel like I am not even pregnant. I do feel the baby a few times a day. I feel little gentle taps here and there. Maybe I am going to have a calm, quiet little girl. Hmmmmm??? But we won't know who this little one is till the Big Day.
The joys of motherhood are wonderful. From raising up a soon to be teenager to watching my belly grow daily---now this is fun. Thank you Lord for the blessings of children in my life. Even when the day seems so long and "could I take anymore" of the day---I have to sit back and think of God's many blessings and joys in my life.
