I haven't really posted any details about the pregnancy because there really hasn't been any details to post. All has gone well: no sickness, not much discomfort, every appointment has given us a positive report. Overall, no real complaints. We are very thankful that God has blessed us not only with the pregnancy but with a good pregnancy as well.
Being pregnant, I now realize a at least one statement not to say to pregnant women. I don't recall ever really making comments about whether or not someone is showing, but I now know that the best comment a person can make to a pregnant woman is "You're looking good." People would comment that I was not really showing, and that was frustrating because I knew that changes were taking place and it made me wonder just how big I appeared to people before I was pregnant. On the flip-side, I also would not people to talk about how big I am getting either. Just tell the woman she looks good and that should be enough.
One question that I am getting tired of answering is "How are you feeling?" Does a pregnant woman ever answer this question truthfully? Does the person asking really want to hear that I am constipated, tired, emotional, concerned, weary of the question itself? If I was not feeling well, I likely would not be present for the person to ask the question. I understand that it is asked with the best of intentions, but I feel like I should just wear a sign that says "I'm feeling fine."
So, all this to say that all is well. I will try to post updates on a more regular basis as the time of our little one's birth draws closer.
