I am officially out of my first trimester and off of the progestrone! Wahoo! I am actually starting to show a little and sadly, was unable to sit comfortably in my favorite jeans this morning. So I happily put on a pair of comfy, full panel jeans without apologies and went on my merry way! I am comforting myself by telling myself it is the second child syndrome (which didn't pass over well when I saw 2 sweet friends at church way ahead of me and with other children but with still perfectly flat tummies, oh well...). And, I felt the baby flutter today. This is the feeling I so grieved after each miscarriage. I know many women do not like the sensation but I ADORE feeling my child move within me. It is so comforting and beautiful to me. We should get to find out the sex in a few weeks which will make for a super fun birthday present.
And, I am facilitating another women's Bible study through our church and I am just beside myself with giddiness over the women He has placed in this study. I came home unable to stop blabbing to Bobby about how excited I was. We are doing a book called Youniquely Woman, calling to light issues of keeping your home, motherhood and marriage. Such timely subjects for me. And I am confident I will learn so much from the women in the study. Such a sweet reminder of God's love for me!
Finally, I have some super fun surprises up my sleeve for my precious husband's 30th birthday so stay tuned for updates!
