"So I will very gladly spend for you everything I have and expend myself as well. If I love you more, will you love me less?" -2 Corinthians 12:15
I am clinging tooth and nail to this verse right now! I am 31 weeks pregnant, I have a 4 year old, a 3 year old, a 20 month old. I also do daycare for a 3 year old and a 22 month old. It's kind of busy! Many of you know that when I'm pregnant I tend to get quite sick. With the pregnancy, the sickness ended right around 15-16 weeks! Yay!! What you probably don't know is that when I'm pregnant I tend to feel kind of down or sad. Many women struggle with postpartum depression, but I get the sadness during my pregnancy. By 3 days postpartum, I feel great and all is forgotten! It's not all consuming or scary, just annoying. To make matters worse, I finally agreed to let the doctor put me on something to attempt to control my blood pressures. Unfortunately, one of the side effects for me is it increases the sadness a little. Some mornings I wake up not sure if I'm ready to tackle the craziness of the 5 kids on top of feeling blue, but, I have something much greater and much more powerful then myself to get me through the day! I will keep joyfully giving all I have!
