Or maybe it is. Just FYI, I'm not pregnant [that I know of].
I really feel ready for another baby. I am as anxious as a cat up in a tree.
Psalm 27:14 Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the Lord.
God is in control and His timing is perfect. Some people may think it's too soon and others may think it's been long enough. But ultimately, it's up to God.
Of course, I have a few worries about getting pregnant. After the miscarriage [13 weeks pregnant] in July, I am scared I will miscarry again. Also, I am very scared of gaining all the weight back. I just reached my pre-pregnancy weight, and that took me 3 years! What if I gain it all back?? What if I'm so tired I can't work out and I lose all my ability to run?
Philippians 4:6 Be careful for nothing; but in everything, by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your request be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
I still have my goals of doing an Olympic triathlon, a half Ironman, and a full Marathon. But it's amazing how God has shifted my priorities and wants. I KNOW that I will accomplish these goals one day. I will keep training for them until I do get pregnant.
Psalm 37:4 Delight thyself also in the Lord; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.
When the day comes and I see that positive test, I will continue on this journey. Just a tad different path. I will continue to count my calories and eat very healthy foods. I will add a few hundred calories to my diet for the baby. I know me, and if I don't track my food, I WILL eat too much.
Love, The Curvy Housewife
