I am Feeling Wonderful!!

I am 12 weeks today. Yeah!!! I am feeling great. The sick feeling ended about two weeks ago. I woke up realizing I had not been feeling nauseous. I started to wonder if everything was okay with the pregnancy. I quickly threw those fears out the window and praised God for blessing me with a good First Trimester.

My first trimester was not bad at all really. Yes, I complained a bit but in reality, it was good. I had some bouts of vomiting but not serious. The nauseous was come and go, and the foggy, emotional mind was---well, a bit hard to handle. But with much prayer and asking God to lift this fog--He has been faithful. I am still sleepy but just in the afternoon and around dinner. I don't normally take naps during the day because I feel I need to be doing something. I have decided to exercise during the afternoon when the tired feeling is setting in. If I get my blood pumping then I will feel refreshed. But of course I will rest and nap when I know I really need it. I know I am growing a baby and my body needs this rest.

I have also taken on some new diet changes. I had mentioned before that I want to have a healthy and whole pregnancy. So, I have kicked the coffee out the window and my regular breakfast and traded it in for Meta Greens and lots of fruit and veggies. I told a few friends that I am on the Raw Foods kick again. I hope I can stick to it. My desire is to feel good and have lots of energy. Eating fresh raw fruits and veggies is so good for the body. It does make a difference in energy levels and sickness. I am already noticing the difference in the way I feel---Even though I feel hungry all the time and seems like I am always stuffing my face with some kind of fruit or veggie or smoothies. Today, is better though---I think my body is starting to get use to the "not so full" feeling in my belly. I just constantly have to remind myself that I am eating to feel and look good and the baby is getting more nourishment than I was giving him or her when I was eating junk food all day. I also remind myself of the scriptures that I read to turn my direction to eating healthier. I will share those another day.

And before I end the post today--I heard the baby's heartbeat for the first time last week. It was such a beautiful and wonderful sound to hear. To know that the baby is alive and well and to know he or she is being knit wonderfully and perfectly by the Hands of God, brings delight to my soul. Hearing the heartbeat meant so much to me. It was so wonderful.

Anyway, I hope I don't stay away to long. My husband even said I need to start blogging again--Yes, honey I will. As for now--be blessed and thank God for the blessings in your lives and know that He cares about every little detail. Also thank God for the wonderful food He provides to give us energy and nourishment. As it says in Psalm 103 "I satisfies your mouth with good things, so that your youth is renewed like the eagle's"---Yes Lord, I want my youth renewed and feel energized to be able to minister and care for my loved ones.

Blessings

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
