This whole pregnancy journey so far has been quite an emotional one. From our long road to get here to our scary complications at the start. There have been many moments where I've been overcome with emotions from fear to excitement. Thankfully the majority of the overwhelming emotions lately have been due too complete tenderness and joy at the thought of bringing our daughter into our lives.
Feeling her first movements, finding out she was a girl, Chris feeling her kick for the first time, hanging up clothes in her closet, registering for baby stuff . . . There have been so many surreal moments the last month or so that have filled my heart with excitement and joy and have brought me to tears.
Of course I still have fears and have a handful of things that I am not enjoying, like not sleeping, being extra emotional, gaining weight and feeling out of control of changes that are happening.
BUT I still wake up daily, feel my growing belly and praise God for this miracle.
I want to savor these precious tender moments that are such a gift.
