I would like to keep this on going, as mamas go over due, as mamas have sleepless nights we all need and have so much to be thankful for and I would love to have a post full of them!

Every time I go to the doctor the doc asks me how I am doing. I always respond "Well I am hoping that you tell me that I am doing well and my daughter is healthy." I am thankful that each and every time the doctor responds "You are doing great and your daughter is healthy."

I am getting to that really less than feeling great stage of pg. I am thankful though that in this pg my Harmony test was perfect, my ultrasounds have shown a healthy child, I am having a little girl , I had a great result on my sugar test, no blood pressure issues, and her growth has been on target (which is a concern as you get older). I guess with all those great results I have to be very thankful.

I am thankful to still be pregnant with a very active baby after a super rough first trimester. It was a little iffy for awhile but we made it through and I've been perfectly healthy the rest of the time.

I am thankful for the friends we have made in this city. We have not had to worry about dinner a single night since Payson's birth. It has truly been a blessing to have one less thing to worry about.

I am thankful for my unassisted birth. It made me re-fall in love with my husband in a way I didn't think was possible. We met at 16 & 18 we were told our marriage would fail, we were told we didn't know. Well we do know and we have not failed!

I am thankful that I have two wonderful sons that are so excited to meet their baby sister. I am also thankful that my body does such a good job keeping baby baking, i may be anxious to meet her but I am happy that she is content.

I am thankful my husband is alive. He had a terrible bicycle crash memorial weekend and went head first into a tree. He was wearing a helmet and still had a very serious concussion. Without his helmet, it would have been a very different week for me.

I am thankful that God has blessed me with two children a girl and a boy in the last three years after twelve years of trying. I am thankful that he has given me a son even though I so badly wanted another girl early on. He knew what I needed. One of each so that I can experience both. I am also thankful that for whatever reasons God made me wait those twelve years of miscarriages and lost pregnancies as it really has made me appreciate my kids in ways I feel not every mom does (I know my own mother never fully appreciated us).

I'm very thankful for my church. Not only have they been bringing us meals almost every day since Arthur has been here, but the gift ministry is paying for movers to move us this weekend. I'm so overwhelmed with their kindness. When my friend said the church was getting us movers, I was speechless. I've been a little overwhelmed with the new baby and trying to figure out how we were going to move when I can't do any heavy lifting. They just took care of all of that with one text message.

I'm thankful that things are coming together and it's almost time to meet this baby.

I am thankful that little man has held off until Madison got to finish her first year of school and all the activities that came with it. I'm thankful that he is growing very well. I'm also thankful that after two girls we finally get to enjoy having a son. I love my girls but have always wanted at least one of each and now our family will be complete.

I am thankful to have doctors that keep a close watch on me and my boy and making sure the complications I'm having don't get out of control.

I am thankful for my wonderful family members as we all go through the experience of losing our matriarchs, on both sides. I am thankful both my parents are already in heaven to escort their mothers into the light.

I am thankful for my wonderful little family, my husband is super supportive and cheers me on at every turn. No matter how crazy my hormones drive him. I am thankful for my sweet little boys that put up with my crabby butt and still tell me they love me.

I like this thread!

He is finally starting to do much better. He has been seeing an Airrosti specialist for neck and back strain. He has a couple of cracked ribs. His cognitive is returning to normal. He always wears his helmet. If you are not fanatical about it with your kiddos, you should be (I will be happy to send some pictures)(. He wasn't being crazy or reckless, just going for a ride on his day off and had an accident. It could have been anyone.

I am thankful for my kids, I'm very thankful to finally be holding baby Ariana in my arms and knowing she's perfectly healthy. I am so thankful to have a son that brightens my day with his silly jokes and crazy obsessions lol. I am so thankful for my hubby who works sooo hard to give us everything we need and loves me and the kids unconditionally and will do anything to always make sure we are well taken care of. I'm thankful for the very few friends I have, they're more like family since the only family I have in this town is my brother. I'm thankful for DH family who is my family now, they are always there for us. I'm thankful for all of you ladies, I really appreciate you for the amazing support I get from you all. This pregnancy wouldn't have been the same without you guys. I look forward to sharing a part of me and my Fam with you all and for you all to share your Family with me as well xoxo

That is very touching Karry, I know how you feel. My mom never really appreciated any of us either. My grandma raised my brother and I. my mom only calls when she needs something. This makes us be better mothers to our kids, because we know what its like to not really Feel that love from our moms. I'm glad my mom is the way she is because that's exactly who I never wanna be. I'm so happy I have a daughter of my own, I will try my best to never disappoint her and have the great relationship my mom and I never had. So happy you finally got the babies you deserve! Xoxo

SO MUCH!

I am thankful that every single day my sweet Jocelyn shows me what the meaning of a miracle really is. Born at 24 weeks and I was told she would never walk, eat unassisted, or graduate high school. I just registered her for kindergarten, while she ran around the room, eating her animal crackers

I am thankful my son tests my patience to the limit everyday. He is making me into the best mother I can be. I went from never wanting children to feeling like if I could handle Gabriel, I could handle tons of kids, LOL. I love him so much

I am so thankful for Grayson, and even for his health scares after birth. He reminded me that life is truly precious and must always be valued--never taken for granted.

I am thankful for the love of my life--Alex, for loving me when I was young, a mom, and then diagnosed with a lifelong disease. He is amazing and I am so lucky to have him!

I am thankful for my stupid cat, who makes me laugh every night as I get into bed as he checks me out, as if making sure I'm still pregnant.

He seems very aware of the baby, and won't ever step on my belly even though he is used to sleeping there while i read at night. He decided to curl up next to my hip instead.

I am thankful he has taught both my boy's the meaning of the words "nice" and "gentle" and has never bitten or scratched them when they weren't.

I am not sure if he saved us or we saved him when we picked him up from the humane society, but I am very thankful he has been a part of our family for the last 9 years.

I'm very thankful for my daughters, who help me everyday with their brother.

Thankful for my hubby, who drives me nuts lol

Thankful for my wonderful tribe of mama friends, I have. We are a very close group and we take care of each other!

Oh and I'm thankful for the little baby that is nice and comfy in my belly. Who seems very happy with being where he is at, and is in no rush to come out.

I am thankful that, even though the birth of my daughter included nearly every intervention that I had not wanted, she is happy and healthy.

I am thankful for my wonderful boyfriend who did amazing during labor and then during the c-section. I can't imagine having done it without him.

I am thankful that I have the family and friends that I do and that I have all the help I need during this amazing and scary time in my life.
