Patience During Your Season of Waiting

When I found out I was pregnant again, I bought a pregnancy devotional called Waiting in Wonder by Catherine Claire Larson. I have loved it from the first day I started reading it. It gives a little devotional then has two questions or prompts for you to write in, which I think will be awesome…

The Bigger Your Storm, the Brighter Your Rainbow.

As I sit here getting closer and closer to week 14, 15, 16 etc.  I am beyond joyful and thankful for so many things.  Obviously, number one being this pregnancy and that I’ve made it past my last 3 miscarriage weeks.  Eight, Ten, and Twelve.  But, I am also thankful for the journey I took…

His Perfect Timing

My precious daughter.  She is about to turn four in a couple of months and I can’t believe how much she’s grown.  How much she’s learned.  How different our lives are because of this amazing little creature God blessed me with.  She has a kind and caring heart.  She’s a much better child than I…

Ready for Battle

Week 10.  Test week.  Since in the “baby making world” I’m considered old (cringe) for having a baby, there are a multitude of test and procedures that have to be done that didn’t when I had N almost four years ago.  I’m only 36.  But, having a baby after 35 is considered high risk.  And…

A Week at a Time

Yesterday, I hit the 9 week mark.  Each day, and especially week, that goes by I get more and more excited.  When you’ve had three miscarriages, each one tends to reply in your mind on a daily basis and it’s hard to stop and be joyful and excited about a pregnancy that may not last. …

Thy Will Be Done

Morning sickness.  Week 6 hit me like a ton of bricks. In all 5 of my pregnancies, the sickness has been the worst this go round.  But, the past few days, it’s really lightened up a bit.  I’ve felt more like myself than I have in a couple weeks and I’ve been able to walk…

How Did Mary Manage Without Ginger Ale????

As week 6 rolls around the nausea has definitely reared it’s ugly head.  As with every other pregnancy (4) of mine I knew it was coming with a vengeance.  I’m a full time working mother, who’s husband is gone most evenings working since he is in school during the day.  When dealing with patients all…

There is No Room for Your Past in Your Future

  If you’ve read my last blog post Trust then you know I am finally on a new journey of hope with this rainbow baby.  Of course I’m praying for a healthy baby but most of all I’m praying to get through these first 12 weeks.  My first miscarriage I made it to 8 weeks,  second…

Trust

I’ve been seeing a lot of people on my Instagram (@iamlivinginfreedom) talk about their “word” for 2019.  I had never done this before so I thought I’d give it a go.  But, what word would I choose?  And how do I go about choosing it?  Is everyone choosing their word as something they want to…

Year of Freedom

Coming into 2018 I was pregnant with what was eventually my 3rd miscarriage.  What a way to start off the new year right?  But, I have to say that even though I began the year with another failed pregnancy, I was still hopeful. 2018 was my year for Freedom. Freedom from fears and anxieties that…
