And sometimes I am hesitant to write about my pregnancy on my blog, because I know so many of you want to have babies and I sure hate to rub my pregnancy in your face. Then I realized, me being pregnant could give you some hope. We tried or at least didn't prevent a baby for 5 years. There were times I wondered if it would ever happen. I had a real peace about everything though. I didn't want a baby if God didn't want me to have one. I just stayed thankful for the things we did have. There was a time or three I wondered what my identity as a woman would be if I wasn't a mom though. It feels like you don't "fit" sometimes around other girls unless you have your kids to talk about.
So know that I know how blessed I am to be pregnant. I don't take it for granted. I shouldn't shy away from the subject, because this is a miracle from God.
