Baby Bumps and Blessings
The Making of a Mindful Maternity
Here I am at 40+ weeks. I feel all ready, so I’m just waiting for the baby to decide to come out. I put off writing this post in hopes that she would arrive, but since she hasn’t I thought I’d write a short update. It is interesting how you have this due date in mind and you wait patiently and prepare, then when it arrives that patience tends to evaporate. In certain moments I still have it and in other moments I feel like we are in a holding pattern. However, I have been enjoying my time with my family and just being present and enjoying life. My to do list is pretty short right now which is a rarity for me and I have been enjoying slowing down.
I’ve been having a number of contractions and even had a few at regular intervals last night (I thought it was going to happen) but then they stopped. I have to remind myself that she’ll come out when she is ready and like many things in life the timing isn’t up to me.
Thanks to all of my family and friends for their support and encouragement as the big day approaches! I feel blessed to have such a great support system and appreciate all your positive thoughts!
