20 Week Pregnancy Update
Well, we are 20 weeks, making me officially HALF WAY through my pregnancy with our sweet miracle.
I couldn’t be more excited. It’s been an absolute JOY getting to grow this little babe and watch my body transform.
I have to admit, pregnancy seemed much more easy breezy than I thought it would be for me, but that doesn’t mean I am not enjoying every second.
I’ve had quite the nausea, which then turned in to morning sickness. Thankfully the morning sickness has subsided but since about week 6, nausea has been a daily symptom I’ve had to manage. Some days feel better than others but along the way I have never for once second not been thankful.
I remember legitimately praying to God for any and all pregnancy symptoms prior to being pregnant. As easy as it can be to complain, I always try my best to remember that this will all be worth it and when our baby is here, I know that I will forget all of this temporary discomfort.
Some things that have been on my mind for some time now are that pregnancy after loss can sometimes be hard…
I googled it and it’s called pregnancy guilt after infertility.
Because I so often pray for those still in the waiting, I can’t help but to sometimes feel a sense of guilt for those women. I know how anxiety-ridden waiting can be.
One thing that has been a constant help in my time of need is prayer.
Prayer is the one thing I can always rely on. When I pray, I feel such a sense of relief. God knows us best. When we yield our every thought and worry to him, He will take the burden.
As I sit here and enjoy being half way through my pregnancy, I will continue to pray for those people that I know that are still waiting and desiring a family. When I say I pray, it might not be as often as I want, but I promise you, when I think of someone, I stop what I’m doing and say a quick prayer. Even if it’s only a sentence or two, God hears it! Prayer changes things, so don’t give up hope!
Here’s to 20 more weeks! ♥
