This Time Will Be Different



 Letter To The Mom I Was in March 2010; One Month Pregnant with Twins

You're pregnant! 
The home test kit said so. 
The doctor confirmed it. 
You should be happy. 

I wish you would be happy; but I know you're scared. 
It's been a long five years; 
and you've learnt that a positive pregnancy test does not lead to a baby. 
Nor does a doubling beta HCG. 
Nor does making it to the end of the first trimester. 

I know it's hard to be ecstatic when only a year ago you watched helplessly as your little boy grew angel wings
I wish you could hear me now; I would tell you to trust.
Trust God that He's got it all under control 
Trust your body that it can successfully nourish this pregnancy. 
Trust your babies that they are as eager to be with you as you are them. 
This time will be different!

Do you remember the first month of your pregnancy? If you could go back in time, what would you tell yourself?
