My next little girl is due to make her arrival on December 31st and I’m so thankful.
Healthy pregnancy is a blessing that I used to take for granted. Growing up I don’t remember hearing about infertility or miscarriage. I’m sure I was just sheltered from those harsh realities, but I assumed that when you got married you just decided to have children and it all worked out.
Dear friends of mine have endured pregnancy and infertility tragedies that make my heart hurt. I’ve cried for them and prayed for them and I’ve resolved not to take my healthy pregnancies for granted.
I’m so very thankful for my pregnancy with Grace and again for this pregnancy.
Feeling my little girl swim around in my belly and poke and kick around is such a beautiful miracle. We continue to pray that the next seven and a half weeks or so progress smoothly. I’d love not to battle high blood pressure this time around and I’d love to go into labor naturally rather than having to be induced.
I know it’s all in God’s hands, so I trust Him that it will all work out.
I can’t wait to meet my next little girl. To hold her tiny body in my arms, to feed her and snuggle her and even change her little tiny diapers. I’m so excited to introduce Grace to her baby sister and to see Andy hold is next sweet daughter in his arms for the first time.
Our family is in such a great place right now with Andy pursuing his dream in medical school and me pursuing mine in our home. I know that this is a summer season in our life and that future hard winters are inevitable, but for now I’m relishing the sweet spot that we’re in and I’m thankful every day for this new little blessing that is going to be added to our family so soon.
