I have felt a little down this week.
Living with chronic pain for the past 6 months is finally getting to me. My right leg has had waves of pain everyday for literally 6 months or more. It SUCKS! I've tried to take it in stride and keep perspective on how blessed I've been this pregnancy to have nothing major happen and mostly I've done pretty well. This week, however, I'm just so over being in pain daily! I'm exhausted from waking up from the pain throughout the night and want relief! I'm just really missing this carefree girl.
I'm also revisiting the nervousness about birth and raising a child that I felt the week I found out I was pregnant. The closer we get to the actual birth I keep thinking, "what the heck are we doing? We don't know nothin' about birthin' or raising no babies".
Of course I know what scripture says about fear, anxiety and the blessing that children are....I just need those truths to sink down deep into my soul this week cause I'm just scared :) This is normal...right?
"Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus." Philippians 4:6,7
