Special Moments

I remember when I first got pregnant and I was experiencing scary troubles that made me terrified for my baby. I was so scared that I was going to lose this baby and I felt so helpless to do anything about it. So I did what I could, I talked to my baby. I rubbed my belly and begged my baby to hold on in there. I promised that there was a wonderful family waiting out here to love him/her and all the baby had to do was hold on. Well, I am over half-way through this pregnancy now and we are holding on together. And this evening, while my son was kicking me, I looked down and wrapped my arms around my belly (this is the closest I could get to holding my baby boy) and we talked again. I thanked him for holding on, I thanked him for being strong. With tears in my eyes, I talked to him and he kicked and squirmed like he was trying to talk back. It may seem a bit silly but it was wonderful as I loved on my baby, so grateful that we get to go through this together and that soon, I will get to hold him for real.

Special Moments

I love the active moments. I love the moments when my little man is in there, kicking and poking and making himself known. It feels like a private conversation between he and I. I feel so bonded with him in those moments. I want these moments to go on forever. It is the most special part of being a mom.

Appointment

I saw my doctor today. My blood sugars are stable enough for now, my blood pressure is fine, and I haven't gained any weight in 3 weeks. I have gained enough overall for us not to be concerned about it. And my little prince is doing fine in there. So all in all, it was a good appointment.

Trying

I am trying hard to eat healthy and do the best I can. I do have to tell you that it is HARD when I am pregnant. And . . . to be honest, I don't always succeed. When I am craving something bad for me, it is so much harder to resist when I am pregnant. How do other women do this??? I have no idea. I have a doctor's appointment tomorrow, I hope I didn't gain too much since my last one.
