Half way there!! I can’t believe we have made it to 20 weeks! It’s also crazy to think that half of my pregnancy has been on bed rest, going on 10 weeks.
After so many years of struggling with infertility I had let go of the idea and accepted the reality that I would probably never give birth to a child. Yet here we are. Baby is healthy and growing, we are picking out names and thinking of getting the room ready.
I am finding myself trying to online shop for a few maternity items as I watch my bump grow and my body change. Which in all honesty is a little eye opening and some days hard to accept as I watch the scale move.
There have even been a few moments of slight panic as the labor, delivery and infant scene are completely new to us. Although we are not first time parents it will be our first time going through the birthing process, bringing a baby home and experiencing countless nights of interrupted sleep. Safe to say my boys have me spoiled!
Despite the first time nerves, they are completely overcome with excitement in meeting and holding this new life. I continue to find myself in awe of this amazing gift and find my mind wondering what the little face will look like.
So here’s to the next 20 weeks! Praying it will greet me with a little more sympathy than the first 20 and perhaps even have me up and walking again soon.
