Another little one update

My uterus now comes about 1 1/2 inches above my belly button, and is about the size of a basketball. My baby is over a foot long and weighs close to 2 pounds. Very active, my baby is even more coordinated in it's movements, peddling his or her feet, and has developed a strong grip which baby may use to grasp on to the umbilical cord. Baby's eyes can open and close and react to light. Vocal cords are functioning although baby won't make a peep until that first birth cry. My baby could survive with intensive care if born now.

Have been feeling a little overwhelmed of what the very near future holds. Even though I have a 5 year old little girl, I'm feeling like a first-timer. I didn't really take the reigns of raising my little one until she was one. I figure if I pop out a one year old, I've got it cased no problem. But I'm thinking it'll be a little baby, and I'm feeling very unprepared. As I seek God and His abounding peace, rest and reassurance, I'm reminded that He will be the one walking me through this step by step. I'm reminded that my husband is a first-timer as well, and what a blessing it is to experience this new thing together. I'm reminded that my God has plans for me and my family that are much bigger than mine, that His purpose for me is to walk in faith, trust and complete dependance on Him. Everyday I need to surrender this to Him, and remember that He will give me what I need, when I need it. So blessed that I have so many to encourage me and walk this with me. Thank you, may God bless you today.

  4. Nin, I bet everything will just fall naturally into place once that little miracle is placed in your arms. I will pray for you peace, and that you will have a strong motherly instinct that will kick in.
