Feeling Better

Last Saturday, after a particularly bad episode of hanging over the toilet, I was laying on the couch praying.

I told God, "You know, I think I'm done learning what You've been teaching me through this. I think it's time You made me feel better. I mean, I want Your will for me... but I really want to feel better. I know if You're willing You can make me well." Then I fell asleep for three hours. When I woke up I had the impression that God was saying, "I'm willing." Since then I haven't thrown up once! Which is a miracle in and of itself. I can eat normally again! I'm continuing to gain energy. I'm so thankful! I still have a small amount of nausea, but I can usually keep it at bay by eating frequent snacks.

I read that the placenta and the baby's own pituitary gland start taking over hormone production at this point in the pregnancy. This is why most pregnant women start feeling better around 12 weeks - their body is no longer being flooded by all the excess hormones.

I'm just so thankful that I'm feeling better. I think that sometimes God puts it on our hearts to pray for something that He wants to give us. That way we recognize that the gift is from Him, and can thank Him for it. So, Thank You Jesus!
