Giving it all Up


I've always been one of those people that preached: You're not in control.  You've just gotta realize things happen for a reason.  Give it all up to God - He is the one with master plan.

Hence the reason why pregnancy has always been really scary to me.  I'll admit I'm nervous about labor/delivery and about losing the baby weight, but those things are minor.  What I'm really scared of is the fact that most of pregnancy is unknown no matter how many books you buy.  And, therefore, completely out of my control.

I use to think that as long as the baby was inside me, I could control his health and well being.  If I ate properly, exercised, drank enough fluids, and avoided toxins, he would be healthy, wealthy, and strong.  Although all those things will benefit my baby, they won't guarantee anything.  I just have to have faith that God will take care of me and my sweet boy.

It's not easy.  All these years, I thought I had done it, but only now am I really giving up total "control" or the control I thought I had over my life.

Yikes!

  3. I'm a very "in control" person too. So I can only imagine what you are feeling right now.
