It’s been a tad quiet here lately. The past year has really been a transition for us, but life is coming back together in a spectacular way. In fact, our lives have changed.
I’m pregnant! It’s still surreal to speak those words. The fact that we’re bringing home our baby this summer is something that occupies my thoughts day and night. Being a mom has been my life goal since I was a very little girl and it almost doesn’t seem possible now that it’s here.
Due Date: Sometime in July or August. Because I’m a firm believer that babies come when they’re ready, we won’t be sharing the arbitrary “due date” with others.
How I’m Feeling: Honestly, not very pregnant. I’m exhausted, but that has pretty much been my only symptom this entire pregnancy. I’m anxious and worried at times, but that’s normal for me.
Birth Plans: Birthing Center with Certified Nurse Midwives and a Doula. No, a midwife is not a witch and yes, birthing centers are safe for most births.
Nursery: No definitive plans, yet. I think John is going to attempt to build the crib, though!
Names: We have a girl name, but a boy name is proving much more difficult.
I’m excited to share more as time goes on, but mostly I’m just ready to hold my tiny babe. Thank you for coming with us on this journey. We are absolutely thrilled and we can’t wait to meet this tiny new person.
