About to be 35 weeks tomorrow and I’m definitely ready for this baby to be here. The sharp pains and difficulty breathing have me stuck in bed most of the day and I’ve been feeling pretty useless. I still find the energy to keep the house relatively tidy, and go to my appointments, but not being able to do more is driving me insane. Also, nesting is a real thing and not being able to keep this house spotless for our little girl is maddening. I actually heard myself say to my husband last night “what is she going to think of us if there are dirty dishes in the sink?”. Lol.
I’m just so excited to meet this new person I’ve been creating! I wonder what she’s going to look like, what she’s going to sound like, and what her personality will be. I can’t wait to rediscover everything through her eyes; that is definitely going to be my favorite part. It’s crazy to think that everything is going to be new to her! All these things that my husband and I are so used to are going to be brand new and watching our daughter figure it all out is going to be thrilling.
I’ve been feeling a lot calmer lately too. Before, the anxiety would keep me awake at night, but for the past week I’ve been feeling this warm and wonderful sense of “we got this”. I’m sure there will be days where I’ll be overwhelmed and feel like I can’t do it, but I’ve got a wonderful partner in my husband and I know that we’ll be able to figure it out together.
We also have amazing friends and family. Having a good support system is so important and I am so lucky to have mine. Being pregnant is definitely one of the hardest things I’ve ever done mentally and physically and it’s been so great being able to rely on these people when I need them. As we get closer to meeting our little love, I can’t help but reflect and feel so grateful for all the people in my life. You all are incredible 🙂
