4 MONTHS

Yea!! I finally hit 16 weeks and am starting to feel much more human again! I really like this stage of pregnancy because I don't feel nauseous anymore, nor tired, and I'm still small enough to be able to sleep on my tummy - gotta love that. There's another reason I think I'm feeling much better, but I'm always hesitant to give full credit to one thing in particular, except God of course :) I found some supplements called Supermom tablets that were advertised in the latest No Greater Joy newsletter. I've been taking them all week, and while I still do get tired during the day, I'm able to work much more and will only need to rest for a few minutes in the afternoon as opposed to twice a day for an hour at a time (blink, blink!) . While I think this might also be attributed to how far along I am in the pregnancy, I also think it has something to do with these supplements. After all, I'd started to feel that wonderful pain (SPD) that plagues me during my pregnancies and was even starting to waddle a bit with it- yes I know! Already! Well, these past few days, I haven't even noticed the pain. I praise God for this, and pray it continues throughout the pregnancy. I'll let y'all know whether these pills really help with the swelling and fluid retention since that's another thing I've always experienced even with my cold January baby. I've been anticipating a bad turn with it this time around since I'm due in September where the average temp. in Texas is around 100 degrees - yikes! But, only the Lord knows what will happen, so, I try not to worry about then. But, as always my prayer is Psalm 51

God be merciful to me
On Thy grace I rest my plea...
