My Pregnancy Journal #30 - Not long now...

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?  30 weeks and 2 days!  Holy cow, it feels like it's going by so extremely fast now because I feel like there's so much still to do...
Baby's growth?  Naomi is SO active!  She is now approximately 3 pounds and is about 15 3/4 inches long! - about the size of a large cabbage. :) #ILoveBeingPregnant
New this week?  I'm 100% in nesting project mode.  BUT my back, even though is much better, is highly limiting me.  It's sorta frustrating.  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.  Which honestly doesn't look feasible due to a few unforeseeable set backs in addition to my back limiting me.  My goal this time around was made to hopefully give myself a longer opportunity to settle, knowing it's all completed and ready for her arrival.  My husband just sings calm to me - "Everything is gonna be alright, rock-a-bye, rock-a-bye."  :)
