In some ways I am grateful for hard pregnancies. Don't get me wrong its tough to see blessings from... The extra weight hurting my joints, the big belly is so uncomfortable, my skin is all oily and weird, my legs and arms have no shape or muscle to them. I am continually tired or hungry. Oh and the nausea, is endless (along with the weight gain)!
I have learned that I have to have opposition in all things to understand the good and the blessings in life. The good: Running and not throwing up! The good: normal eating habits, not just cookies for every meal. The good: shape! (come on who doesn't like to look DANG good?) The good: energy that comes from working out. The Good: getting up and feeling like you can accomplish something big for that day. For seven months now I have been giving myself a pass to eat, sleep, be unmotivated and be pretty much selfish. (all pregnant women should have this pass) With under three months to go I am ready to reclaim and improve my former self!
I'm hoping to read this a year from now and remember the bad and really relish in my GOOD health!
