So, I’m 26 and half weeks pregnant. The days and nights get longer and I get a bit more irrational.
It is really nice to have my two year old son to look at while I wallow in my discomfort.
The first time I was pregnant, I didn’t have any tangible evidence of joy that follows pregnancy and child birth.
I have more hope this time around, which helps assuage the hard times, just look at this child:
Any time I feel like complaining, I just turn on the T.V. and watch the Home and Garden Channel (HGTV).
My life is good, really good. It’s not perfect, of course there are hard things.
But, Life is infinitely more easy when I focus on all the good in my life.
I may sound odd to some people, but the lack of more troubles makes me grateful.
We have a functional car, we are able to pay our bills, we are all in good health (not without some discomforts – but we are healthy!!), we have food to eat.
I have had several, very painful, episodes of pain in my uterus – which I did not have with my first pregnancy. So far, everything is healthy and I still have a child growing in there.
When I have really hard days, I remember that I still have a healthy baby boy and others have not been so lucky and that makes me grateful.
Choosing to focus on the good in my life makes all the difference. I am so blessed. Grateful for the family support and love too. Where would I be without them?
“I think I can” is a bit late at this point…there is no other option for me. So finish out this pregnancy I will… in three months I’ll have a new baby boy and I wont have to share the innards of my body anymore and those are both very good things to celebrate.
