Baby #5

As soon as I saw the baby, he/she starting moving like crazy. At one point it looked like he/she was waving! Hands going crazy! I sobbed like a baby. This never gets old. 

So this is my first time using a midwife and I cannot say enough about how much I LOVE her. She was the perfect fit for me! I cannot imagine having anyone else. She is a homeschooler too and has to be the smartest and healthiest woman I have ever met. For real! I already feel like she is my friend. WOW! God is so good! We are having a home birth this time and I can't tell you how excited I am to not have to fight the nurses on a natural delivery. I have a MIDWIFE! WOO HOO!

I am officially in my second trimester! Praying the morning sickness subsides ASAP!

Oh sweet friend, this picture just undid me! Look at that baby! So amazing, what God creates, and in such a short time. To think He has known and planned this child f=since the beginning of time. Doesn't that just boggle your mind?

I cannot believe you are in your second trimester- wow! Praying you are feeling better every day. I had a mid wife, too, and adored her. I told her I would never have a baby without her, she was amazing and made the days exactly what I wanted them to be. SO glad you found one you like! Thanks for sharing the picture- precious!

Amanda will you find out what the baby is? My best friend had a midwife with the last two of her children (she has four) and she did great!!! She labored in a pool and was so relaxed!!! And she was feeling so wondering in just a day or two b/c she wasn't so pumped full of iv's.

I already posted it on FB. I'm so excited. I know AB wants a sister but I will be happy even if she gets another "nasty" brother.

love you
