I’m due one month from today. One month. 30 days.
Oh my goodness.
&& baby girl could even come before that – kind of a scary / amazing / beautiful thought.
Are we ready?
Well technically speaking, yes. We have all the essentials. We’ve bought everything we need for our home birth and we’re “prepared”.
Physically, yes. I’m so ready to have my body back. To be able to touch my toes and take a deep breath. To be able to workout with intensity again and entertain the idea of moving at any sense of speed.
Emotionally, well I’m just not sure. How can you prepare for the emotional rush that is bringing a human into this crazy beautiful world? I just don’t know how I will be prepared emotionally for that.
And then I have these moments where I think, “Am I ready?”. Can I do this?
But, then I remember.
I remember that all it takes is lots of love, a great support system, and the assurance that I’ve never been given any task that I couldn’t handle.
So, you know what?
Bring on the last month (for now at least). The last month of heartburn, shortness of breath, and a big belly.
And bring on birth … this momma is ready!
