24 weeks!

(Dress) (Belt

At 6 months pregnant I am feeling really good, I can't complain. I have the occasional sleepless night or pain here and there but for the most part it has been a pretty easy road. I just wanted to talk today a little about how I have been feeling lately and I hope some of you expecting mama's can relate. 

I'm a pretty easy going person I would say, but something that has been bothering me a lot while being pregnant is how a lot of people try to steal your joy. They will tell you all their horrific pregnancy stories or labor stories that just went plain wrong. I love to listen to other mothers experiences and advice because it really does help, a lot. But so many moms have told me how I'm in for "such a big surprise" and that you're "fooling yourself if you ever think you're going to sleep again!" my favorite one, "Enjoy it now because once you have kids your life is over." 

My husband and I are so happy to have this baby and were talking the other day about how parents always seem to try to make being a parent seem like its a chore. I don't doubt that being a parent is one of the hardest things you will ever have to do. I for one am so extremely lucky to be having this baby, I thank God everyday that I was able to conceive a child, because a lot of people can't. If I have to wake up 10 times a night to rock him to sleep or feed him I will because thats what we signed up for. I knew what I was getting into and I know that everyones babies are different and everyone has different experiences, But I know that my God will help me through the pregnancy, labor, delivery and when we have our little miracle home with us. The reason why I'm writing this today is not to call any one out, its just simply to remind everyone, parent or not that what we take for granted every day someone else is praying every night for. 
I hope you all have a great week!
