I am now solidly in my second trimester. My due date is getting closer and closer. Several weeks ago we found out we were having a little girl. Seeing her on the screen at the doctor’s office was so amazing. I could not believe my little one is growing so fast!
For several weeks now I have felt flutters and movement. Yesterday, my little girl was fluttering away. I think she is going to be a bit hyper like her momma and grandma! I put my hand on my belly and felt what I think was her kicking. It was the first time. I was shocked. I was so excited. I wanted to jump and shout! There was only one problem we were in a church service.
I may be out of breath and tired. I may get frustrated at all the things I physically can’t do because I am living and breathing for two. However, I can’t help but see God when I feel my baby kicking.
13 For you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.
15 My frame was not hidden from you
when I was made in the secret place,
when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.
16 Your eyes saw my unformed body;
all the days ordained for me were written in your book
before one of them came to be.
17 How precious to me are your thoughts,[a] God!
How vast is the sum of them!
18 Were I to count them,
they would outnumber the grains of sand—
when I awake, I am still with you.
