These last few months have been crazy and exhausting. Morgan and I finished up our last semester of college and we were able to walk together. It feels absolutely amazing to be finished with school for awhile! This last semester was extremely difficult because I have been so sick with this pregnancy. I can not count how many times I had to run out of lectures to throw up. Luckily I had Morgan to help me constantly. Whenever someone hears or sees that I am still throwing up- the first thing they tell me is how I shouldn’t still be sick and then they give me advice. I love having so much support and love from all my friends and family, but I am just one of those luckily ladies who will be sick until I deliver. My mother had eleven kids and never got sick while pregnant, so I was caught by surprise when my doctor told me that I would continue to be sick until I delivered. But hey- I’m having a baby! And that is absolutely amazing and worth every minute of any pain caused by pregnancy and I am more than grateful for this opportunity to be a mother.
I was so scared the first few months of my pregnancy because this was not how I had pictured my pregnancy and I felt like I wasn’t being a good mother for this sweet little baby because I could not keep food down. I was so worried that he wouldn’t be able to grow and be healthy and strong. And on top of that I was so exhausted physically and emotionally from being so sick. When we went in for my 20 week ultrasound they told us that he was healthy and strong and he was in the 89 percentile for body mass – I could not believe it! Babies are truly a miracle and somehow they are able to get everything they need to grow. After I got this news everything seemed easier and life didn’t seem hard anymore. I have learned what helps me not feel nauseous and when I do throw up- its not the end of the world and I usually feel fine within an hour or two. I have gained such a huge respect for all mothers. Being a mother is the most unselfish, hard, and emotional job there is. I cannot believe how much I already love and would give anything for my sweet little boy.
Before I got pregnant I thought my life with Morgan was as good as it got. But in these last few months I feel so much closer to my sweet husband. The other night Morgan had his head on my stomach and was talking to our baby and this little guy started kicking like crazy and kicked him right in the face! Oh how I love feeling his sweet kicks and flips in my stomach! My love and appreciation for Morgan has grown to more than I could have ever imagined. My little boy is going to be one lucky kid with Morgan as his father. I’m starting to think that when you get pregnant your heart grows and grows and grows, because tears come to my eyes instantly when I think of how blessed I am to have such an amazing little family. Morgan and I already love our little boy with our whole hearts. We have never been so happy and excited.
