Pregnancy Blog Week 10

Week 10 – Mood: Blessed

Sometimes I forget how incredible it is that I am not the least bit sick or nauseous right now.  This past Sunday at church I was greeted by two or three people with expressions of grave concern asking me how I was feeling.  For a split second I wondered what the first person was talking about.  Oh right.  But really the truth is that I feel great!  Aside from what I affectionately call ‘pregnancy narcolepsy,’ I hardly have any symptoms.  One day last week I felt queasy all day long but I’m pretty sure it was from the greasy burger I had the night before…

It’s amusing to me how different I feel about being pregnant this time around.  The first time, I was freaking out about getting the initial exam with ‘the stirrups,’ and all of the dread and fear that word implies.  This time, I had my two year old in the room while I was in the stirrups and I was too busy trying to keep him from getting his fingers caught in them (an unsuccessful endeavor on my end) to worry about how awkward it is to have someone ~ahem~ examining that area of my body.

The only thing I have to complain about is a recent acne breakout I’m experiencing.  Usually I truck on through life wearing my Bare Minerals and never washing my face before I go to bed (don’t judge).  But no such luck right now!  If I don’t wash my makeup off, I’m paying for it.  So I actually have to take care of my skin now…

This picture was taken by Jake last night while we were celebrating my first baby’s second birthday.

    Maybe the stillness of your body means you have a gentle, quiet baby girl in you?! Haha Whatever the reason for your lack of nausea, it’s a great thing.

    I had a crazzzy night that I want to tell you about! My friend and I were going over a prophetic dream she had and she started submitting other dreams to me for consideration. She said she had a dream about the young couple who have a little boy and work with youth. She didn’t even know your names as she only remembers you, Jake, and Shep from that one youth leader meeting. A few months back, she dreamt you were pregnant with a girl. Imagine her surprise when I told her you were 10 weeks pregnant! I nearly floooooored her! It was so neat to see her so encouraged by such an in-your-face fulfillment of what God had told her.

    Beautiful, huh? Hope it was encouraging to you! God has already spoken about that child in your womb. What a purpose He must have!
