Just Filling you In

It feels like forever since I have posted. I am 9 weeks pregnant and feeling it. I have been feeling under the weather. Yes, the nausea is still there and the sleepiness is there. I am not complaining though---I am rejoicing in the new life being in my womb. A precious bundle or two. TWO---just wishful thinking. No, I am not insane for wanting twins. Twins would be a double blessing!

Children are beautiful in everyway. Who wouldn't want the many pitter-patter of little feet; The crying---waking you up at night;--I count it all joy.

Pregnancy is such a wonderful experience. To know that a baby is being knit in my womb is remarkable. To think this child is being knit by God Himself is another awe in itself. The miracle of life is amazing. Yes, life is a miracle. To enjoy every moment of this miracle is wonderful. I can't wait to feel the baby moving and kicking me.

I have already bonded with this little one. I think of him or her each day. I am filled with excitement and can not wait till day of the baby's arrival. What joy. We are planning on having the baby at home.

Homebirth---Well this is another awesome experience. Galen, my 5th and Kole, my 6th baby were born at home--in the bathtub. To have a homebirth is a wonderful experience. My midwife is wonderful. She is so hands off---just how I like it. No prodding, or pushing, or coaching. She lets me do what I want. I personally like to "escape" into the labor. No noise, no sounds, and no one in the room with me. I just "escape" and focus on the Lord and how He is delivering my baby.

Childbirth is a wonderful experience. Yet it is hard work. To go through it naturally is such a beautiful and exhilarating experience. Nothing can compare to the feeling of delivering a baby and he/she being placed in your arms after having gone through so much pain and work. The prize is well worth it!!! Thank you Lord for the awesome gift you have given woman---to give birth.


Blessings

Good to hear you're doing alright! I feel like I'm in a fog most day of the week. Maybe I'll wake up when the baby gets a bit older. I love her little self right now and wish she could stay this way for awhile...

Homebirth!! THAT IS THE WAY TO GO!!
my last 3 were homebirths, my only regret..I wish they all would of been homebirths! It is amazing! I too have a great midwife whom is hands off. You sound like you labor like me.
I hope that the Lord will give you the desire of your heart to have twins, maybe not this time around but sometime.
Glad you are doing good.

Thanksgiving at home: First time in 18 years

Let's just say that we didn't plan to spend Thanksgiving at home this year. I think the last time we celebrated in our own home was back when Moriah was a baby.  Yeah...that's about 18 years ago or so.  Let me tell you....W e absolutely loved it! Here's a little run down on how our plans were miscommunicated. You see...Donnie and I didn't communicate our Thanksgiving plans very well this year.  He had forgotten that we had spent Thanksgiving with his side of the family last year so that meant it was time to drive up to Jacksonville and spend time with my side of the family.  With not much talk of our T hanksgiving plans, I hear from the kids that he t old brother or dad not sure who that we would be heading down to see them Thanksgiving.    This conversation happened just a few weeks before Thanksgiving.  Kids: Hey where are we going for Thanksgiving this year? Me: Ummm....I think it's Jax.   One of the kids:  I thi

Part 2 of my last post/A Reply to a Comment

I decided to write a second part to my last post in response to some comments that were left. I understand the heart of the woman who wrote the response and I am in no way being critical of her comment. I just want to share my heart in a more deeper way. Here it goes: By far am I thinking and promoting people to walk in gray areas or sin. I am just simply sharing that we are all on this journey of walking with the Lord and sometimes we as Christian women can put yokes of bondage out of Law and not allow the Lord to change us by His Spirit. I am wanting to share how the Grace of God has taught me that by His Spirit I can be changed, not by doctrines or teachings of religion. Yes, the bible clearly says that women should wear modest apparel. Does this mean skirts? Yes, it says that having long hair is a covering for the woman? But will Jesus still love me if I do cut my hair? And how long is long enough? Some women cut their hair to help a good cause such as wigs for cancer
