I am Thankful

Oh, that men would give thanks to the LORD for His goodness,and for His wonderful works to the children of men! For He satisfies the longing soul, and fills the hungry soul with goodness.
– Psalm 107:8-9

I am so thankful…this pregnancy had been so different from Jack’s pregnancy. I am so thankful that morning sickness is not nearly has bad and I don’t get sick as often as I did with him. It would be very tough to deal with constant morning sickness, horrible spells of vomiting, and extreme fatique while trying to keep an eye on a 14 month old toddler.

I am thankful that I have a hind sight to look back on and learn from the things that I shouldn’t have done or could have done better when I was pregnant with Jack. I ate way to much junk food when I was pregnant with him. I didn’t drink enough water either. I’ve been making up for that this pregnancy for sure! I can even drink orange juice this go around, which makes me very happy. I’d get sick drinking an ounce of it with Jack! I’ve also been craving healthy foods like fruits, veggies and have made a point to maker healthier meal choices as well.

I am thankful and ever prayerful for chance and hopefully success of a vaginal birth after cesarean. My constant prayer is for God to take control of this pregnancy. I’ve put it in His hands. I pray that the Lord will give me strength and endurance for labor and delivery. That He will bless us with yet another healthy and happy baby. I’m praying that this pregnancy, labor and delivery will go without complications and I will be able to go through the birthing process as He intended it to be done. No surgery, no OR, no anesthesiologists…And yes…perhaps He’ll have mercy too and bless me with a labor/delivery that is as pain free as possible without medical intervention.

I cannot wait to hear our baby’s heartbeat! I haven’t heard it since I was 7 wks pregnant because the midwife didn’t bring in the doppler and didn’t want to scare me if she couldn’t find it at 10 wks! 🙁 I am really looking forward to my appointment on June 25th and praying for an uneventful visit!

God is good!
