WOWZA! A BUN IS IN THE OVEN…will be ready…September 2022

Hi there everyone!!!!!

Thanks so much for supporting although it has been quiet here on WordPress, I genuinely appreciate it.

As you may have noticed, I have been missing in action; however, it was never my plan to be gone for so long, but I was ridiculously sick for a while as God knitted inside my innermost parts, His beautiful masterpiece.

I have a secret that I have been keeping for the past few months that I am excited to tell you all. I am so happy to announce that I am pregnant; yes, you read correctly, a baby is in the oven and will be fully baked and ready to grace this world in September 2022.

Nature has a way of invigorating you even on the gloomiest of days. “You are worthy our Lord and God to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they existed and were created” (Revelation 4:11).

The news of my pregnancy was not a surprise as my husband and I was intentional about having another child. On the other hand, my daughter is extremely excited about becoming a bigger sister. However, my son was not thrilled about a new baby initially. He was distraught. He told us that he was the only baby allowed in the house and that there was no room for anyone else. “I am the only baby!” he screamed. It did not take long for him to come around. Now he has become very protective of the baby and me. He tells everyone that his mommy is having a baby for him. Every day, he gives me endless kisses, belly rubs, back rubs, especially I love you’s. My heart melts every time he places his mouth on my belly to speak to the baby. He promises to take him or her to the beach, aww! He was also adamant about wanting a brother, but lately, he has been saying that he will love the baby, whether it is a boy or a girl. My little Jedidiah is the sweetest big brother.

The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims His handiwork (Psalm 19:1).

This week I will be 22 weeks pregnant. The first few months of being pregnant have been a rough roller-coaster ride. I thought that I would be able to tough it out and blog as per usual, but I had no energy. While I am very much thankful for the blessing of another child and a subsequent expansion of my family, I must say that I suffered a great deal from morning sickness. Although I am still uncertain who came up with the term “morning sickness” in my mind, this could not be farther from the truth and is therefore very misleading. “Twenty-four hours sickness” seems like a more fitting term because I was sick night and day. I had nausea, vomiting, headache, backache, heartburn, and stomach ache, you name it. It was so bad that I could not do much of anything; everything halted. Hubby described me as being a ” total vegetable.” I was severely weak, dehydrated, and even lost weight from the constant vomiting. My OBGYN became concerned about me ending up in the Emergency Room but thankfully, it did not get to that.

I was utterly miserable; on some days, I was reduced to tears while I prayed for the time to pass so that I could feel better. Week 16 was my rainbow period, or so I thought. For some reason, I was hopeful that I would feel well again by then, but I was in for a surprise because I did not receive much relief until about week 18 of my pregnancy; hooray, hallelujah!

I feel fantastic most days except for backache and the occasional yucky taste in my mouth. I also run out of breath quickly; this bothers me greatly. Before pregnancy, I could run up to 10 miles, and now I cannot seem to take ten steps without gasping for a breath.

I will praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well (Psalm 139:14).

I now have my energy back, and I am elated. I can now take care of my family and especially my son. I can cook healthy meals for them, care for our home, catch up on the long-overdue task, tend to my garden and plants, take walks, and exercise again. Things are looking up.

I am making sure that I get back to blogging. I will also be making a few changes as I incorporate an aspect of motherhood as a part of my content. This pregnancy is my third, and I feel this is an excellent place to start. There is a lot of catching up to do, and you can be sure that I will be sharing updates on this journey with you.

Blessed shall be the fruit of your womb…….(Deuteronomy 28:4).
