When things don't go as planned it simply means that God has a better plan for you. This is what I've been telling myself for a very long time now. My favorite verse in the whole world is Romans 8:28. I won't write it here so you can go and search it up :)
Nine month ago I tried my very best to do everything right during my pregnancy so I can have a natural birth, and be up and about in no time. I was avoiding another C-section because I knew it will take me longer to recover and get back to work. Not that I don't like rest, I just don't like being still, especially if I have a business to run. Unfortunately, (or fortunately) I ended up having a planned C-section due to some health complication.
Elikia arrived two weeks early on the 5th of November. He was born at 11:00 am weighting almost 4 kg. He's very peaceful and calm, sleeps really well and feeds all the time, no! seriously, all the time. Did I mention that he's very cute? Oh yes he is, he's stolen our hearts and caused timed to be still. All we do is stare at how beautiful he is, we are pretty much obsessed with him.
I honestly believe that I needed a C-section so I can be still. The fact that I'm physically unable to drive for six weeks and not able to do much has allowed me to rest, relax and bond with Elikia. It really was a blessing in disguise, because I can guarantee you, if I had a natural birth, best believe I would be planning December markets right now.
God knew that if it was up to me I wouldn't have allowed myself to rest. That is why Roman 8:28 plays such an important role in my life. If you haven't read it yet. What are you waiting for?
