I'm about 12 weeks along now! The official due date is June 4th, but we'll be scheduled a week earlier in late May. It seems so far away when I think about the snow still needed to come, melt and the ground to thaw. We're happy and amazed that a person is growing inside of me. It never gets old.
How am I feeling? Yucky half the week. The other half mostly fine. Today is a yucky day. But, my energy level is decent so I am very thankful for that.
Gender? Can't decide. Mark wants to find out, but will lovingly wait to find out if that's what I really want. I think it'd be fun to experience finding out the gender at birth, but with a C-section, I'm not so sure it will be what I'm imagining. So, we'll see. That ultrasound will be in January.
The Girls? So excited. Hope often asks, "How big is the baby now?" And she is very interested in how the baby is growing, if it can hear yet, and of course taking care the baby after birth. And every time the baby is mentioned Anna says with a big smile, "Baby? Mommy? Hold? Sing? Out?"
Me? I'm looking forward to another sweet baby. I'm looking forward to the Lord's grace being shown in greater ways by helping us through the adjustments. I'm looking forward to teaching this baby about our great God, His love, the bigness of the world, and loving others. And I'm looking forward to how God will stretch me and continue His work in my heart of showing me my sin and helping me to become more like Jesus.
And, I'll proudly say I'm already quite comfortable in my maternity pants. I think by your fourth, your tummy just knows what to do ;)
Thanks for being on the journey with us.
