A friend requested a “belly shot” and I obliged. What a difference maternity clothes and one week of gestation make! Look at that thing! (A large Mexican dinner about 30 minutes prior helped too…) It’s not the best picture of me personally, it had been raining all day and I was pretty exhausted, but what I love about it is the happiness I can see in my eyes.
I am happy.
Every day, I am amazed at where we have come from and where we are. I read about the pregnancy process and then I see those things happen to me. It continues to stun me every time.
I read about the uterus “rising” and being able to feel the top of it by pushing on your abdomen. That is just something I read in a book, right? That wouldn’t happen to me… and then suddenly, it does! One day, I feel it. Out of the blue, just like that. Surprise, gratitude, and crying ensue.
Every week or so (or more often if needed), I get to hear this sound. The most beautiful sound ever made…
I am happy. And every day, I pray for my “infertility sisters” that they will feel this happiness someday soon. I pray for them by name. Even though I know God knows them already, I say their names. No matter what path their happiness comes from, I want it for them. More than words can say.
This week is a big one in our world - please keep us in your prayers. We'll update soon!
