Here I am, 32 weeks pregnant with my 4th little man.
We were not surprised to find out our sweet boy is measuring in the 98th percentile… over 5lbs y’all. Yes… over 5lbs. Now i know that can be off by up to a pound but the size of this belly makes me feel like they’re right.
You guys, I’m officially approved to VBAC. Yesterday’s appt would’ve been to set a csection date but we have been praying for a VBAC. If you remember Ezra’s birth story (read here) then you know this pregnancy has come with a lot of anxiety & fear. But Nathaniel & I both are true believers in the power of prayer. I have prayed long before this baby was even in my womb. Prayed for a healthy low risk pregnancy. We. Have prayed for a VBAC. I have prayed that God will open my womb as He sees fit & if He indeed saw fit, would He blow our minds with how amazing the next pregnancy would be.
He is continuously blowing our minds this pregnancy. The baby has had 0 complications, I have been healthy & had minor issues only, I even passed my last breathing test! This is huge you guys. I usually have weekly oxygen treatments, I have in the past been considered highest risk for complications or preterm labor. But God. . .
I’m no longer considered an extreme high risk & everything looks perfect. This news has Nathaniel & I over the moon with gratitude & joy.
““I also tell you this: If two of you agree here on earth concerning anything you ask, my Father in heaven will do it for you.”
Matthew 18:19 NLT
“You can pray for anything, and if you have faith, you will receive it.””
Matthew 21:22 NLT
“I tell you, you can pray for anything, and if you believe that you’ve received it, it will be yours.”
Mark 11:24 NLT
“You can ask for anything in my name, and I will do it, so that the Son can bring glory to the Father.”
John 14:13 NLT
These are Jesus’ own words & I am going to take Him at His Word. I have doubted the power of prayer in the past so much. But faith hits a little different when you’re desperate. I am desperate y’all. Desperate to live with peace of mind & I have found that in my life, that only comes from trusting Jesus.
So Jesus, I trust you with this baby boy. . .this season of life. . .this pregnancy. . .& our future as La familia Richardson. In Jesus name, Amen.
