There have been so many babies born lately! There have also been a rash of good ultrasounds and rising betas! I can barely keep up with my celebrations sidebar! If you haven't had a chance, be sure to head on over and congratulate the new mommies and mommies-to-be!
I was trying to explain to my husband that we are kind of "next." There were a bunch of us infertiles that got pregnant around the same time, me being on the tail end of things. Now, most everyone has had their babies, so it's my "turn" if you will. This both delights and scares me.
I think that I spent so much time thinking about how to get this baby in that I didn't really think much about how to get him out. Yeah. I'm getting a little nervous about how all of that is going to go down.
I am not shy about taking things for pain, so I am not as worried about that as I am about possible complications. I am terrified that something could go wrong and Little Man would be in danger. I think these are all very normal fears in the final weeks of pregnancy. I am also starting to read chapters in the pregnancy books about postnatal recovery and there is a lot that I don't really know if I am ready for!
But, ready or not, here he comes! This month (hopefully)!
I am starting to pack my labor bag this weekend. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
