Baby Fever

Don't worry. This post isn't me rambling the whole time about how much I want another baby.

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.

I will try will walk/jog at least 4 days a week while pregnant. I will do strength training and swim. I will keep my body healthy with whole grains and by moving. I will keep losing and trying to get into a 12 and the 170's until I get pregnant. I will wait upon the Lord. He is good.

Love, The Curvy Housewife

I always pray for another baby, too! I have the same fears. (My husband had cancer so it would definitely be a miracle baby.) I can also worry too much, so I pray all the time God will take away those thoughts.

Wishing you peace,
Phil. 4:8

There are so many things you can do to ensure a healthy pregnacny weight. But,if you got pregnant and gained all the weight back, and had to start over at square one physically. You wouldn't really be starting at square one. You KNOW it's possible to lose weight, and enjoy an active lifestyle. You will not lose the knowledge and courage you've gained from this experience. And that is just as important as the weight lost! ;-)

That's very true. ;) Thanks Sara!

I had all of the same worries. And every time I entertain a worry or a fear, I decided to just give it to God, because worrying about it all isn't going to help the situation any! Trust yourself, trust your body, and above all trust God. And know that your next pregnancy, when the time is right, will happen exactly as it's meant to!
