How are you feeling?

this is my most asked pregnancy question, maybe for every pregnant lady out there too.. well, I really ENJOY when people touch my belly but the whole how are you feeling thing.. i never know quite how to answer. It's almost like.... do they REALLY know what they are asking? HA! In the beginning I was not ever sick, mostly tired, but some days were better than others, so it was an okay question then.. but now my days are SUCH rollercoasters.. i thought i was hormonal/emotional before pregnancy...So i guess it always depends WHEN the person asked.. but most of the time it is easier to just say fine or good or growing.. those are my typical answers. Well today- I did NOT quite answer like that... a couple of my students asked how i was.. and i broke down.. i told them all my problems and how stressed i felt and didn't start to cry but started to laugh a little. How Silly was i really being? I mean are these problems SO awful- wake UP devyn- you are carrying the most precious daughter of God- YOUR child- what could possibly be BETTER and how could i possibly be MORE blessed than this time in my life. of course i am not getting the highest grades in my classes, i should know that with my study habits i NEVER will (haha) who CAREs if my house isn't spotless and why do the little things really get to me, oh yeah because my hormones take over my life right now. My problems are really so small to what they could be, but it's my world so they seem SO much bigger at the time. I am thankful for my sweet husband who puts up with this, and my mom who listens when i need to talk (and my students :)) and friends who send me texts or FB posts to know that they care. Sometimes thats all I need, but all the time I need to remember my Heavenly Father who has given me such an amazing opportunity to grow nurture this little girl, he has blessed me with the opportunity to be a mom! It helps so much when we remember to count our blessings...
So How am I doing now? I am doing great, I am happy to be carrying my sweet daughter, and can't wait to meet her. Although i better be getting some sleep or i may be extra cranky tomorrow ;) - For all those who are still reading- thanks for listening.. writing feelings down always helps me out.

I read all the way through. Love you girl! Hang in there. Those hormones are a rollercoaster...and just a warning...keep counting your blessings for the following 9 months after you have your baby and those homones take the rollercoaster back to normal. :)

Devyn, your doing great with all that you have going on. Like your friend April said the rollercoaster will continue... but just remember that it's normal for a time to not feel normal. All that you're going through is so worth it once you see little Hazel's face. I'm excited for you and Jason and this adventure you are on. There's nothing better then being a wife and mommy. :)
