// 39 weeks//
This is a weird post to write. Wow, never thought we’d ever get here! We are so close to finally welcoming our daughter to the world and to our family.
Since last week I’ve been working from home, balancing my time relaxing, nesting, and getting things done. It’s been perfect. Just like other mammals who spend their last days before birthing preparing a safe den and retreating for hours a day, I’ve been able to have physical and emotional space from the stresses that are unnecessary to this process.
My sister and brother-in-law arrived this week to help Donald and me. We’ve been cleaning, organizing, wrapping presents, watching Christmas movies, and making last minute arrangements. We’re so thankful.
I have processed a lot of emotions this week and reached out to a lot of people for their advice and support. …about c-sections, breast feeding, becoming a mom, having visitors, husband support, on and on. I think most of my fears are addressed as best they can be, and it’s time to set them aside. I’ve read books and listened to friends, and now it’s time to quiet my mind. I am focused on the peaceful energy in my home and the connection with my husband. It’s just about game time.
Pray for a successful and uncomplicated surgery and delivery, a happy and healthy baby, and the bursting joy of two new parents.
Until she’s here…
XO, J & D
