I confess: the weeks are flying by with this pregnancy! Of course this is a little expected as my daily goal is to keep up with our two toddlers (what? toddlers?). Since we’ve had a variety of pregnancy, delivery, and post-partum experiences, maybe it’s to help put the kibosh on any unnecessary worries? That would make sense :)
We have officially hit the halfway mark: 20 weeks pregnant! I feel super, super great! The baby is giving me little flutters (mostly at night), which is so fun. Max came up to my growing belly the other day and kissed it, and I just about melted onto the floor. Our entire family is excited about baby #3 ;) we don’t know the baby’s gender, and we decided to once again NOT find out, yeow! But I will share this: with both of my previous pregnancies I had no trouble falling in love with a baby name that (coincidentally) matched the baby’s actual gender. With Maxwell, I felt super confident on our boy name. With Natalie, I felt super confident with our girl name. And our third time around has been no different: I love our boy name, but I’m having a hard time committing to a girl name ;) look, now I’ve jinxed the whole thing.
Anyhoo, I am just so grateful to have a healthy baby growing in my belly. It is still very fresh to me how worried I was just three years ago, wondering when we would have a baby. And look how that prayer request has been answered! I know all requests aren’t always answered so quickly, and I often think back to the adventures God brought us on before leading us to parenthood. Even though we don’t know what lies ahead, we do know we can rest our faith on God. He will bring us through anything and everything. INCLUDING how to be a mama to three little ones, three years old and younger! :)
