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...

I am with you.. I still want bio twins. When I get my new children (please keep us in your prayers) I will have 2 six year olds, 2 twelve yr olds and 2 8 yr old... gee you think I am getting blessed with the desire of my heart?
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.

Just a quick update to let you know we had the baby!!  Yay!!!! :D Here name:  Ana Karisa (pronounced  A-nah  Ka-ree-sah  ) Born: January 30 at 9:15 PM Weight:  7'2 oz  19 inches  Beautiful little girl.   Here are some pictures and when I start feeling normal and not so much like a milk cow, then I will post the details of what took place on Delivery day. ( Ana about 5 minutes old) (Here she after her check up--about 30 minutes old)   (Coming home!!  1 1/2 days old) We came home yesterday late afternoon, and I am lacking much sleep.  I really haven't slept since last Saturday.   She is nursing a lot right now to bring down my milk.  I've been nursing around the clock.  Almost every hour.  I am doing this because she has been hungry and I need my milk to come in as soon as possible.  I am showing signs today of it coming in.  She is not so fussy and more content.   It is so easy to forget about those newborn days.  It doesn't matter how many babies you have h

Meet Sweet Kara Faith

My sweet friend Nancy from Mom Just Like You , delivered sweet Kara Faith on January 8, 2010 at around 6:45 AM. Nancy's husband Stu calls me around 5:30 AM to let me know Nancy's contractions never let up and she was going to be delivering their long awaited miracle baby Kara. It has been an emotional battle these past 4 to 5 months for Nancy and Stu. Kara was diagnosed with Alobar HPE on the same day they found out they were having a baby girl, their 8th child, third daughter. Their heart was broken not knowing what the future held for them. Nancy leaned on the only source she had in her life: The Lord. I have been friends with Nancy for 5 plus years now (we met on MOMYS). When I found out Nancy was going to have a special baby, immediately my mommy heart was aching for my sweet friend. I went into deep prayer and intercession for them. I was grieving along with them, but deep down in my heart I knew God was and is Faithful. As I prayed one evening at worship nigh

A day away....

Life had become so overwhelming for me when Donnie was away with the older two  children.  It seemed we hardly ever had time to really talk about life anymore I started to feel disconnected with him I really don't like this feeling I am not a surface type of person and when "problems" in life begin to brew..... look out!!   I will do what it takes to make things better.... Even if we have to make an emergency get-a-way... I wanted just one day... one whole day alone with him. Sooooo.... Donnie asked his sweet mom to watch the children for us while we took a little drive on over to the beach... ahhhhhh I think the beach has become one of my favorite places to be.... There is something that takes place deep in my heart when I come face to face with the massive ocean and the waves.... The breeze blows and there I find some comfort and peace... We had such a great time reflecting and revamping some of our vision, plans, and goals for  the
