"I'm going to miss this..."

After reading a friend's blog this afternoon I couldn't help but write this post. She reference this blog. WOW, I am reading her entry about just enjoying every moment with your children, crying my eyes out...while my 5th grade class has D.A.R.E. going on. :) (How's that for a pregnant woman!?!) It seems the past few months of my life has been a whirlwind. Mark and I found out we were pregnant (surprise!), we then found out we were having twins, then identical twins, and most recently identical twin boys! I know I have heard parents say "what did we talk about/do before we had children?" I honestly try to think about to Mark and I before we found out...don't get me wrong I loved how we were then and I am still LOVING the way we are now but these boys have already consumed us. I love them so much now and I haven't even held them or seen them in "real-life." I can't imagine what it will be like when they are really here...physically! This post made me stop and think about the past few weeks...I have found myself complaining about some small things that are beginning to happen to me. (weight gain, clothes not fitting, feeling full, headaches...blah, blah, blah) I will soon be 17 weeks and know I have not even began "the worst" part. But this post made me there going to be a worst part? There are many pregnancy stories out there, tons of multiple pregnancy stories too, am I going to be one of them? The post talked about enjoying EVERY second with your child. For me at this point God spoke and said enjoy this pregnancy. Not everyone has twins...God has chosen Mark and I for this special journey. He has a reason for this. He would NOT give us something we couldn't handle. He would not create this life inside me (2 of them) if this was something I couldn't handle emotionally, physically, mentally, and even spiritually.
"Thank you Lord for speaking to me today. Thank you for showing me/reminding me you are in complete control. Please remind me to "find the joy" (thanks mom!) in every day I am able to carry these two precious children of God. Thank you!"


  1. I just read her post and it took my breath away I just wrote a letter my son and my blog and it really had me thinking this week about how much I DO cherish every moment. Enjoy your pregnancy. I had a horrible pregnancy. I had hypermesis and was on bedrest for almost 9 months. I had a PICC line that went from my arm to my heart to feed me and the baby. It was awful...but my baby is fine, more than fine...perfect. You are wondering why I am writing you telling you how bad my pregnancy was?? Becayse it will be ok...and even with how bad mine was if I knew that I could be pregnant again and live through it..I would be pregnant right now again. I would have gone through all of that over again. Motherhood is the best thing that has ever happened to me. I am really excited for you, excited to watch your journey as a new follower and to see what life is like for you as a mommy! Have a good weekend and gets lots of sleep.

  2. Congrats from the Friesen Funny Farm! I just found your blog thru MofM. Being pg for the first time is so different than we think and dream it will be. My only advice is to embrace "every little thing" as your story and how ever things/delivery happen it's OK, cause it's your story and none of it matters but having 2 healthy babies. The u/s pics bring back so many memories! It's so surreal isn't it. Hard to believe those little ones are in you and then afterwards so hard to believe they were in you! Have fun!


I always love what you'll have to say...thanks for stopping by!
