My last post about pregnancy was a bit discouraging, so I wanted to update. If I discouraged anyone out there, it does get better!!! It’s so short in the grand scheme of things and it’s SOOOOOO worth it. And just to show you how far I’ve come, I was VERY depressed. When I went for my sleep study, I had to fill out lots of paperwork and surveys. Apparently one of them was a depression survey in disguise. I got a call from someone a couple of weeks later saying I was severely depressed. I didn’t know I was THAT depressed! I can laugh at it now, since I’m feeling so much better.
I’m so very grateful that I AM feeling better these days. I had an ultrasound yesterday and my baby boy is 3 pounds!! We’re very excited about this. I’m a week farther along in this pregnancy than when I had my first son, so this one is twice as big so far. I know some of my blogger friends have been praying for me and I’m very grateful to you!!!
God is wonderful and I’m so thankful He’s truly blessed me with my little ones.
It’s so much fun to feel him moving around in there, and I LOVE it when I feel him hiccupping. It’s absolutely wonderful!!
So, yes, the bad part passes and it is a truly wonderful experience. That said, I’ve yet to really experience the third trimester, which I’ve heard has it’s moments, but I’m looking forward to it anyway.
On another note, my brother and his wife had their baby boy about a month ago. He has a heart condition that will require surgery, but he’s doing so well right now that they are going to hold off on it a couple of months. He also has Down’s Syndrome. I know that times will get tough with that, but he is precious and very much loved!! I know they could use prayers, though.
Much of my spare time lately has been sewing diapers. Yes, I’ve decided to use cloth diapers!! So far we are really loving it, not to mention it saves lots of money. I hope to post about that adventure in the next couple of weeks.
