I’m roughly 15 weeks along now and am in my second trimester. People have told me that this trimester is blissful. I have yet to experience it. I’m still achy and sore all over as my muscles tighten in my shoulders and back yet loosen in my pelvic region. Today I spit up three times, each having the vinegar taste of vomit. I know the title of this post is misleading and discussing bodily releases is not the most pleasant thing to read about. I honestly don’t really know what to post about other than this though. This is my current experience. All that to say, I keep anticipating when pregnancy stops feeling like a nuisance (because there are women who’ve had it worse and frankly with everything going on in the Middle East and Asia I really can’t complain about my pregnancy since I’m growing this kid with such creature comforts like peace and indoor plumbing) and I start enjoying this answered prayer. I am grateful, I just don’t think I’ve ever truly dealt with all the fears and knew exactly what to expect before now. It is a lot different than I thought it would be and nothing like my sister-in-law’s pregnancy that I envy so much (she didn’t even know until she was 7 months along)!
Here’s to finding strength in Christ yet again because I have absolutely none of my own. In him this’ll be a glorious experience if I’d just rely on him and less so on myself.
