 {Nine weeks}

The familiar Waves of giddy washing over me A body already slipping into a rounded shape Daydreaming and wondering who is inside First trimester hormones Messing with my emotions Tears of frustration; tears of joy Sometimes mingling in the same moment An expanding love saturating my being exhaustion accentuated catching naps when I can The unfamiliar: A peace far greater than in any other pregnancy A holding loosely to things not mine An inquisitive four year old who wants all the details A hunger that distracts most hours of the day Time flying So fast already So much the same and so much different. I've done this a few times before, but it never loses it's fascination for me! Treasuring the memories.

Mari said...

Wendi, I'm SO happy for you...beautiful picture! Love how you captured all the thoughts/feelings/emotions of being newly pregnant. This was one of my favorite verses this pregnancy Ex 14:14 - it talks about the Lord fighting our battles and we just have to "hold our peace" I learned much about that this pregnancy...speaking of...Judah arrived Friday weighing in at 8 pounds 4 ounces, 19 1/14 ounces. I still remember your sweet comment when I announced my pregnancy with him.

Rejoicing with you!

Mari
