Worrying about Tomorrow
This weekend I had a little bit of a pregnancy scare which actually ended up being something quite normal. Not really wanting to go into detail…but let’s just say that this pregnancy is totally different then it was with Cora. As Justin put it “You were a super hero with Cora” and I was…not really, but it was so easy. This pregnancy has been so different. My body feels way more pregnant and apparently Elinor wants to hang low…really, really low.
My tummy no longer pokes out but hangs down…and my eyes are practically swollen shut with fatigue. The “cute” stage of pregnancy is over but the best part of this stage of pregnancy is I sleep like the dead. I don’t even get up to use the bathroom more than twice a night.
Cora has a cold right now or maybe allergies. Either way she is exhausted and grouchy. After church yesterday I changed her into the outfit I had packed and she looked so…unkempt. She does not fit any of her 2T pants. I am so sad as I love this little polka dot pair. They are hugging right around her ankles.
Strange that the first year of her life she barely made the 5th percentile for height and is now is a year ahead in size. I am mourning all the beautiful clothes she’s been given that she may never wear.
Have I mentioned lately how much I love my husband? We may have had a weekend with a lot of tension due to my worry…
Last night Justin helped me clean our whole house. Something that meant so much to me. I have all my “what ifs” and one is “What if I went into labor and the house was upside down and then I had to come home to it looking like THIS!”
“Thou will keep me
In perfect peace when
my mind is stayed on you
Peace flowing like a river
Peace never to be stolen
Peace that you give
is not of this world
my mind is stayed on you”
-Perfect Peace by John Waller
So I am hoping that today will be a good day. God is in control and I am not….”Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.” -Matthew 6:34
Happy Monday All!
