My Pregnancy Journal #29 - Nesting Like Crazy

Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born, I set you apart.
Jeremiah 1:5

I prayed for this child, and the Lord granted me what I asked of Him. So now I give him to the Lord.
1 Samuel 1:27-28

“Oh that God would give every mother a vision of the glory and splendor of the work that is given to her when a babe is placed in her bosom to be nursed and trained! Could she have but one glimpse into the future of that life as it reaches on into eternity; could she look into it’s soul to see its possibilities; could she be made to understand her own personal responsibility for the training of this child, for the development of its life, and for its destiny, –she would see that in all God’s world there is no other work so noble and so worthy of her best powers, and she would commit to no others hands the sacred and holy trust given to her.” -JR Miller

How far along are you?  29 weeks today!  My "bump" is beginning to feel a bit heavy now.  ;)
And check out my new do!  "I got mye herr did!"  I've never had my hair this short, but desperately wanted something that would be much easier right now.  It. Feels. Amazing.

Baby's growth?  Naomi is SO active!  She is now approximately 2.5 pounds and is a little over 15 inches long! - about the size of a Butternut Squash, LOL. :) #ILoveBeingPregnant
New this week?  I'm 100% in nesting project mode.  So much to do to meet my goal.  My goal has been to have the house, our bedroom, her clothing, cloth diapers, and baby stuff totally completed (purchased, prepared, and ready) by 32 weeks
I've "nested" up until 36 weeks in every previous pregnancy.  Except, of course, for the one where I was thrust into a surprise hospitalization & bedrest at 34 weeks and induced at 35...  Yeah, "stuff" was certainly not "ready" at that point.  The incredible husband became the nesting super-hero that time.  :) 
Anyway, working to get stuff ready that late into my pregnancies left me in a state of unrest the final weeks before their births.  My goal of 32 weeks this time is to give myself a longer opportunity to settle, knowing it's all completed and ready for her arrival.  :)
