I hope you all had a terrific weekend. Thanks so much to all the ladies who kindly agreed to share their birth experience. I might as well warn you that there is probably going to be a lot of baby talk around here in the upcoming weeks/months! I look forward to that. ;-) Yes I realize not all readers of this blog are new mothers or expecting a baby, so please bear with me...
By the way, so far ultrasounds have been unable to tell us whether the little one is a boy or a girl. We might have seen that, if the baby hadn't been curled in a certain position that didn't allow us a glimpse. ;-) I suppose we'll find out later, but even if we don't, we won't mind so much - all we pray for is a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby.
It is one of those periods where there is so much to do and plan. A new marriage; moving into our first home soon; preparations for the arrival of a new little one... sometimes my mind is in a whirlpool and I just wonder how we are going to accomplish so much in so little time, but then I suppose the Lord will faithfully guide us through, as always.
Also, have I mentioned how incredibly fortunate I am to be the wife of such a sweet, loving, caring, supportive man? His resourcefulness and confidence in caring for us contribute a lot to my feeling of security.
Anyway just popping in for a quick hello today. Looking forward to many more interesting discussions in the upcoming week!
Just for inspiration, here is the story of Esther Segal, who gave birth to... not two, not three, but five babies at once! After long years of fertility treatments, David and Esther were pressured to abort some of their babies because the pregnancy was considered extremely high-risk. The couple made the brave decision to cherish and preserve all life, and were blessed by five children, three boys and two girls, who are now about 8 years old and thriving.

I wish all my Jewish readers an easy 17-th of Tammuz fast.
