One Month

I have one month to go before I see my beautiful son. I have been doing some complaining these last couple of months, the swelling, weight gain, not being able to lay down when I want to. Having to go to the Doctors twice a week for non-stress tests is not fun, especially when I have to take the kids with me.

Now that the end is near I found myself thinking, what was I complaining about? This pregnancy wasn't so bad. It actually went by fast and was uneventful.

I don't know how things will go, if this will be the last time I am ever pregnant again. I really do not like being pregnant, but the thought of NEVER being pregnant again makes me feel a little sad.

Pregnancy and giving birth is a miraculous thing. There are sacrifices, pain, and worry, but then to think about the life that is created wipes everything bad away. God is so good and generous with His gifts. Even the ones that are wrapped in swollen ankles and stretch marks.

Oh, I have 7 weeks left to hold my sweet little girl, and am in the middle of my 3 appts weekly, including an ultrasound and NST. I'm with you on everything you just said and am trying my best to not complain, because, this, too, may be my last pregnancy, I'm almost 40, within days of my 5th C-section. Everything is a gift and each appt is a blessing.

Prayers for you and that sweet little baby!

That's it exactly! I have terrible pregnancies, and after my daughter was born my husband and I looked at each other and said, you know, 9 months of absolute misery isn't really that high a price when you contrast it with someone's whole life. What's 9 months against a person being able to exist? It's worth it, that's what it is. Can't wait to hear the news about your new arrival. :)
