Bearable

Some of you may remember reading my blog post about my personal experience with pregnancy. I caught a lot of flack for that post from people who seemed to misunderstand me. These are typically the same people who encourage every woman, regardless of her personal experience with pregnancy, to just be happy, never mention the... Continue Reading →

Like sides

"Just remember that like sides always go together." My very patient friend sat across from her dining room table, patiently pinning together fabric to fashion a throw pillow for our baby's nursery. Not only was she patient with the fabric and with the process of learning a new technique, but she was also patient with... Continue Reading →

Girly gratitude

Monday, we learned that we are having a baby girl in November. Both of us have been praying for a healthy baby, regardless of the sex. I will admit, though, that I've also thrown in a few "God, if you don't mind, I'd kind of REALLY like to have a baby girl" prayers along the... Continue Reading →

The heartbeat of God

Yesterday, my husband and I had the privilege of hearing our baby's heartbeat for the first time. Instantly, I cried. I knew I probably would; I have become a much more emotional person than I used to be. The closer I get to God, the more in tune with my own feelings I am. I... Continue Reading →

Not “for granted” anymore!

I used to only feel nauseous when I had a stomach virus, the flu, carsickness, or maybe an intense migraine. When I got pregnant, I began feeling nauseous almost all day every day. I occasionally have brief moments of time when I can breathe and move without feeling uncomfortable, nauseous, and irritated, but those are... Continue Reading →
