"...I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; so fight I, not as one that beateth the air..."

For Curious Minds
Since this is really the only way I get to keep in touch with many of you, I wanted to give you a little update of how I and the baby are doing, since care, concern, and wonder have been expressed by some (thank you). I just had my second appointment after my ultrasound last week, and everything with the little one is good, including the heartbeat, which I was able to hear. I am doing much better, now that I am past the first trimester, as I may have mentioned before. I was pretty sick during that time, and am glad to be feeling useful to the world again now. I have not gained any weight, probably due to my being constantly sick, but I anticipate that to change quickly, now that I have my appetite (and more!) back. : ) Since I was so sick, and being that this is my first child, I still am not showing, but once I do (around 6 months I hear is probably the time I finally will--as all you experienced mommies know), I will gladly share pictures. : ) Thank you all for your love, prayers, and concern. We continually pray for a healthy baby and are constantly thankful for the blessing of a child.
Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain. And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible. I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; so fight I, not as one that beateth the air: But I keep under my body and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, whenI have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway.
