29 Beautiful Weeks
We have arrived at 29 weeks! These weeks are so very bittersweet. I love how baby continues to grow bigger each day. This past week I have finally started to feel real kicking! Josh and I have even had a few times where we have felt little body parts poking out! This week has been the best week so far with baby movements! I feel so blessed that God has allowed us to share these precious moments together as a family. I know they will be memories to cherish and remember forever.
We know that our little one could make his or her arrival at any moment now. But we are praying for as many weeks more as God chooses to give us together. My hope and prayer is to make it at least past 35 weeks. It is scary to think that we are getting closer to the end, but I honestly feel at peace with the future. God already knows what will happen with the birth. I continue to remind myself each day of the promise in God's word where it says : "For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11
These words offer me such hope. God has a plan already in place for me, and for our baby. God already knows what will happen at the birth of our baby, and in the days that follow. He has remained faithful to us throughout this entire pregnancy, and I know he will continue to be faithful in the days ahead. That is the hope that I can cling to through this darkness. That is the hope I can cling to through the fear of many unknowns. That is the hope that I can cling to in the midst of heartbreaking pain.
