blessed

EVERY pregnancy is a blessing.

It means someone will be a parent and a family will be born.

Please don't ever forget that.

I wish everyone could know how much of a blessing being pregnant and being able to have a child is. Sadly, some people just don't get that.

There was a time when I was very jealous of other's pregnancies, but now, I am happy to hear of anyone getting pregnant because I know what a true blessing it is.

I consider myself blessed to have been pregnant three times, but not a day goes by that I don't wish I could have carried all three to full-term.

Pregnancy is a blessing. I've been pregnant 4 times now. I love being mommy to my little baby girl. And I'm excited to be mommy again.

My mom wasn't able to have children all her pregnancies ended in miscarriages. Sometimes I felt guilty that I was able to have children and she wasn't. She always reminds me that its a blessing that I'm able to have children. And although she wishes she could have had her own, she wouldn't change things. She chose my brother, me and my sister.

I just was talking with a friend as to how she'd done counseling with a young woman, and the young woman did keep the baby and raised it. My friend said that it was one of the most difficult phone calls she had ever had in her life, countering all the justifications for "getting rid of" the child.

It's a mark of growth in the soul, I think, when one finally gets to the point that women like us who have lost so much aren't jealous of pregnant women.

Hang in there.

Yes, as hard as my miscarriages were I wouldn't take them back for anything.
