In Transition

16 June 2014



So I've been quite the blogger these last couple months. Things are just a bit crazy to say the least. If you don't know my husband and I moved from NYC to Florida just two weeks ago. We are now trying to settle back into to the Florida life and it's somewhat of an adjustment. The adage time waits for no man is so true. So much has changed in the 2 years we've been gone. The only thing that stayed the same were our families. Our church, small groups, friends, neighborhood and so much more has all changed and we find ourselves feeling somewhat foreign to our surroundings again. All though its good to be home and among family part of me longs for the settled feeling that we had in New York. 

I now feel like I am in transition all over again. Not to mention I am in my 4th month of pregnancy and have no motivation whatsoever to do anything besides lay on the couch and eat. The few boxes we brought with us have not been packed away and we are still waiting on the interstate movers to bring the rest of our things. All I can say is Lord give me strength because this is not what I imagined life would be like when I was expecting.

Moving aside, all things are well with the babies and I. They are growing and developing so much that it amazes me. I have been somewhat of a wreck since graduating from my RE at 8 weeks pregnant. I found myself addicted to seeing the babies weekly. Now I see them monthly and sometimes biweekly depending on when I meet with the high risk doctor. All throughout our struggle to conceive God has been working on me so that I would experience a deeper trust in him and he is not done with me yet. Like so many newly pregnant mama's I wanted to get a doppler so I could check on the babies every day. But the Holy Spirit talked me out of that and I am now using my faith muscle and speaking life over these babies every single day. God has been true to his promises and they continue to thrive under his protection.

Life isn't quite the way I imagined it would be but it's good. 

I am not as capable as I was before pregnancy. I am forgetful, lazy, and unmotivated but I know that even in my weakness God's strength is displayed. He will give me the gusto that I need to get our home in order and to prepare the room for the babies arrival. He will keep my womb closed tightly as we wait for the babies Christmas Eve arrival. He will provide all of our known and unknown needs. Until then I'm waiting and trusting, we are in transition.

  1. it's gotta be hard to leave somewhere that you've settled into and move back to somewhere that you haven't been for so long. i know that's gotta be a tough transition while you're pregnant - but God is good and i pray that He comforts you during this time like only He can :)

  4. I am so glad you didn't get that evil Doppler. It makes people crazy! Perhaps these slower, less "productive" times are teaching you to be less fastidious and to just breathe more.

  12. Don't feel bad for being lazy. I bet you will get more energy soon. I think the 2nd tri burst of energy just comes a little delayed for some. It did me too, but then by 20 weeks I was unstoppable and nesting like a freak! haha! I'm sure it's a little disarming to see so much change in only a couple years, but you guys will find your "new normal" in no time, and it will be better than ever! Soon, you'll be meeting new friends with kiddos and having playdates and experiencing a whole fun new life!

  13. I'm so glad you've made it home safely and are settling in. I know it's an adjustment- just remember to give yourself grace every day! It's so hard, this growing babies business. It doesn't get easier, but you will grow stronger. I was sooooo tired and so lazy and so unmotivated this time last year. You never quite get back to "your old self" but God is making you into something far better. Love and hugs, my friend!
