I’m only 22 weeks and 2 days into my pregnancy, and I currently have 17 weeks and 5 days to go! So far, the nesting urge has officially started. I’ve cleaned out my closet, dresser and moved my husband’s office into another part of our apartment to start the prep on the baby’s soon-to-be room. Any advice from those mommas out there on what’s important during these last few months before the baby comes are welcome!
Evelyn Marie will be arriving around April 22, and we couldn’t be more excited. The moment we found out it was a girl, I felt like I fell in love with her even more than I already had. I think it’s because she finally had a name, a personality, and I finally started to feel her moving around more and more. Even though I haven’t seen her, I pretty much think she is the cutest thing in the entire world.
It’s in these moments that I realize she is already a living human growing every day. I know there are many circumstances where women choose to terminate a pregnancy, and some women aren’t educated at all on what is happening with that tiny life before they choose to abort. A lot of women think it’s a non-living thing inside, but at approximately day 22 of gestation, there is a heart beat.
I love how God reminds us how we are already known before we are formed in our mother’s womb, and how each one of us are fearfully and wonderfully made!
“I knew you before I formed you in your mother’s womb. Before you were born I set you apart and appointed you as my prophet to the nations.” -Jeremiah 1:5
“I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; marvelous are Your works, and that my soul knows very well.” -Psalm 139:14
I can’t wait to share more on how the baby process is going for Josh and I! We are so looking forward to Evelyn’s arrival! I’m sure you’ll be seeing more posts on baby gear, decor and life!
