23 Weeks Pregnant

I love being pregnant! The bigger my belly gets the more excited and eager I get to meet our beautiful baby girl. My pregnancy journey has not been perfect of course, but I will say that I have felt so much of God’s grace during these last 23 weeks. I’ve been fortunate to not have to go through any morning sickness or nausea at all during my pregnancy. I feel healthy, my baby is healthy, and I’ve been so happy! I have had moments in the last couple weeks where fear and uncertainty have crept in because of certain symptoms I was experiencing, but God’s peace came to the rescue every time. My baby girl belongs to Him and her life is in His hands. It’s been so fun feeling her move around so much! I’ve really felt her moving a lot more in these last couple weeks and I love it. On another note, I’ve never seen the number on a scale so high and I couldn’t be more thrilled haha! I thought that gaining weight and seeing my body change would really effect me negatively but my gratitude outweighs every thought. I just can’t help but feel so thankful. In addition, Dan has been such an amazing support to me. He’s been so caring and nurturing, he’s been at every doctor visit, he’s always making sure my needs are met, and always aware and ready to help me with normal things that have now turned into an event, like tying my shoes 😆. It’s not as easy to bend over the same way and I know it’s only going to get more interesting. He’s dealt with my constant tossing and turning in bed, adjusting to the adventure of me trying to figure out a pregnancy pillow, my food needs (not cravings 😉), and my random moments of crying for simply no reason at all. He’s been my superman for sure! I’m still feeling so much gratitude and at times still can’t believe this is real! This pregnancy has been a beautiful experience for us and I can’t thank God enough for his grace.
