So…the past couple of days my sweet, much needed virtues of Patience and Faith, have been much needed. I went to the Dr. yesterday and was told that my little man was still very high up and I was only dilated 1 centimeter. And then on top of that I have to get another ultrasound to see how much are little guy weighs, my doc says that she is estimating that he will be 8 pounds or more. This news was not music to my ears!!!
I honestly was going to this appointment hoping and praying that there was going to be some relief for me in near sight. All my fellow mama’s know about the discomfort, heaviness, anxiety, and sleepless nights that come along with the tail end of pregnancy. And I just wanted out!!! I want my body back! I didn’t want to have to push out a 10 pounder and I just want to see my little guy, and know what his name will be (yeah, I had a dream about another name last month, so now the name that we already had is in question :-))
But right now, with the baby chillin and the other things that have been coming up lately, I have decided to let patience and faith be my anchors. I am believing that even with everything that is going on that God’s best is going to come from it and I still have a lot to be thankful for. Regardless of when our baby comes and how much he weighs, I am extremely thankful to be his mommy. I am thankful about how God has blessed my womb with my 2 previous pregnancies (40 weeks exactly w/Virginia and 39 weeks 1 day w/twins) when I was told that I wouldn’t be able to carry any child to full-term b/c of a weak cervix.
So for me I have to keep going back to my anchors, the very things that will keep me grounded and steady~patience and faith. I have to be PATIENT w/the process and have FAITH that all things are going to work out for good and that God’s glory is going to be shown in my life. I can’t say that I have it all together but I can say that I am believing and expecting to receive the best from every area of my life!!!
So, how about you? What virtues are you holding on too right now????
