46 months

Walking (PREGNANTLY SLOW) to a San Diego 7-11 this evening, Ryan and I were marveling at the fact that our marriage has endured four pregnancies ("How on earth did we do it?" I asked. "You married a man of steel, Jenne"). Ryan did a little bit of math and I was horrified to learn that counting up all miscarriages, ectopic pregnancies, and live births, I have been pregnant for 46 months of our marriage. When it is all said and done, it will have been 48 months. FORTY-EIGHT MONTHS OF PREGNANCY.

I think I would have been better off not having that realization.

Well you have been married for 132 months....and ONLY pregnant for 48 of them. Does that make you feel a little better. Wait, that means you have been pregnant for 1/3 of your marriage. Hmmm....

Jenne said...

Yes. That was what was so apalling. 1/3 of our marriage!! How have we survived?!? (The grace of God, obviously!)

Wow- 1/3 of your marriage. The good news is that percentage will go down over time! How many months have you been parenting a child with a strong will? That to me is WAY harder than pregnancy. Hope your having a great time!

Wow, well done! I hope never to achieve the goal you have set but God's plan will prevail. I'll just take it one at a time. Well done Jenne & Ryan of course!
