Bump Date | 29 Weeks with Baby No. Two

I decided to document our pregnancy as a way to get all my feelings and emotions out and to later look and remember this beautiful time in our lives while noticing the differences and similarities with our first pregnancy. I hope you enjoy if you decide to follow along on this life changing journey.

To think it wasn't possible for me to get more tired and uncomfortable. This week was definitely a rough week where I wanted to (and did) stay in bed majority of the day. I am still trying to follow my previous pregnancy bedtime routine and it helps some and as I mentioned in my 28 Week Update, I did try 30 minutes of Yoga and that did help tremendously on that day. I was very sore in the groin area the next day so I took it easy and skipped Yoga for two days as I was told you can still over due it even if it's just simple stretching. Despite my discomfort and exhaustion, I love feeling all these kicks and movements from baby boy. Although I have to pee a billion times a day and sometimes I feel like a boulder is sitting on my lungs, his kicks remind me that he is there and growing stronger.

Pregnancy can be hard but man is it a beautiful journey. As I look back on previous weeks and see my body undergo this amazing transformation of growing another human being, I am reminded of how blessed I am to even get to experience this. It is easy to get caught up in the rough parts of pregnancy and complain of how tired and hard it is but honestly I wouldn't trade this for the world. 

So if your another momma out there struggling to get through your pregnancy like me, remember you were chosen by God to grow and nurture this gift of life and what a beautiful and amazing journey to be charged with. And for the women whose hearts are yearning to feel that life inside of you, I know it is hard especially hearing those who are able to conceive and grow a life complain (we waited five years before we were finally pregnant with Sophia), trust and lean in the Lord for He is so good. We cannot possibly understand His will for our life but He is sovereign and in control and what great comfort that is to know He is in charge.

Father God,
Thank you for the gift of life. Thank you for being in control. Thank you for being our strength. It is so easy to think we know what is best for our lives but I pray that each one of us would trust in Your Will and sovereignty and for the days it is hard for us to understand Your will. Let us lean on You and cry out to You for your strength. We need you, Lord. We need You not only on the days it is hard but we need You on our good days as well. We need You more and more everyday and I pray that You will put it on our hearts to want You more and more. To study Your Word so we may know You, to pray to You without ceasing so we may know You. Put that fire in our hearts for You, Lord.
